Customizable approval amounts

User Security

Giving users access to the features they need while controlling which modules they can access is an important part of any enterprise software solution. With OpenGov Financials you have the ability to control user access down to the screen level of each application. With the creation of security groups, the software administrator is able to assign multiple people similar access through a simple process. Users can also be assigned to multiple groups to allow for cross-support between departments, giving the administrator an unlimited number of security scenarios.
