Significant ERP Upgrade Sparks the City of Corpus Christi, Texas, to Invest in OpenGov Government Budgeting Software

Corpus Christi, TX, officials didn’t have much time—they needed to get new budgeting software live, stat, due to a massive ERP upgrade, so they partnered with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our nation’s cities, on government budgeting software.

Texas’ eighth largest City and the nation’s largest energy port was facing a major challenge—the information system’s ERP upgrade would leave the Finance Department without its budgeting module, making FY2024 budget development nearly impossible. As leaders reviewed solutions, they also kept other pain points in mind: It took weeks to develop quarterly Finance reports, publication creation was difficult at best, and staff often struggled to answer Council members’ very detailed questions. What made the nearly impossible possible? OpenGov Budgeting & Planning.

OpenGov Budgeting & Planning will unify departments as staff across the City will have the ability to collaborate on budget development within the online platform. Leaders also can look forward to transforming multi-year capital planning with the ability to forecast capital expenditures and track performance, all while keeping the Council and public informed. Best of all, staff will have the smallest details available at their fingertips with OpenGov so that they can get information to Council members faster. And, with all the financial and non-financial data in one place, staff can easily build and edit an online budget book that provides one source of truth, building transparency and trust with taxpayers.

The City of Corpus Christi joins more than 1,600 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
