The City of Meridian, Idaho (“Meridian”) is considered one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. and has received numerous recognitions, including a ranking by Money.com as one of the best places to live in 2019 and 2020. With a population of almost 115,000, Meridian realized that managing 200 various Microsoft Office files during each budgeting cycle was an inefficient process to meet the demands of their growing community. The City spent too much time organizing information and manually inputting data, as well as lacked the ability to report and gain insights from their budget.
