Focus on Strategy, Not Clerical Work
Control the Narrative
Enhance the written narrative and better communicate strategic goals, organizational priorities, decision-making processes by reallocating time spent on manual data updates.
Reallocate Time to High-Priority Projects
By streamlining the budget creation and document publishing process, OpenGov’s end-to-end budgeting solution allows you to reallocate time to other high priority projects.
Create a Single Source of Budget Truth
One Collaborative, Definitive Document
Instead of maintaining multiple versions for multiple departments and manually merging changes, the entire team can iterate on one collaborative, definitive document.
Maintain an Automatic Audit Trail and Versions
Edit, revise, and comment on one central document that evolves over time. Because all changes are saved online, you can always see or restore some or all content from older versions. Only authorized users can make changes, all of which are automatically logged.
