City of Imperial, California, Government Budgeting Software Research Leads to OpenGov Partnership

When several City of Imperial, CA, officials watched an OpenGov Budget & Planning demo, they were impressed and ultimately forged a partnership with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud ERP software for our nation’s cities.

Leaders from the City, located in California’s southeast corner near the Mexican border, had been researching government budgeting software to update their processes. Even City Council members who noted the “pen and paper” approach to budgeting was best were impressed with OpenGov Budget & Planning’s capabilities. Leaders agreed it was the most robust solution they had seen.

A pen-and-paper approach to budgeting is often fraught with errors. With OpenGov Budgeting & Planning, City staff will not only reduce budget errors, they could also spend 50% less time creating a budget, allowing more time for strategic efforts. Now, they will be able to collaborate across departments to develop the budget and track its performance. OpenGov Budgeting & Planning makes it easy to budget for and track  Capital Improvement Plans, calculate workforce costs, develop what-if scenarios, and plan strategic initiatives because it allows users to visualize trends and model proposed budget changes, all lacking in manual budgeting approaches.

The City of Imperial joins more than 1,000 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
