Why Your Financial System May Be Letting You Down

Why Year-Round Budget Management Requires a Different Approach

Financial management systems, or ERPs, are simply not made for local government budgeting.

These outdated tools have no notion of budget workflow, no way to structure your capital planning process or its fiscal impact, and no way to accurately model your true workforce plan or create what-if scenarios. Most budgets built on an ERP budget module end up less thought-out, more siloed, and in multiple systems, including spreadsheets.
