Questica is pleased to announce that the City of Riverside, California, will be adopting our OpenBook platform as their data transparency tool. The City of Riverside has been a Questica Budget customer since 2011, utilizing Operating and Salaries modules, and in 2017 implemented the Capital module. The City looks forward to leveraging the seamless integration between Questica Capital and OpenBook to display their capital projects on an interactive map, making their complex data more searchable, visual and shareable with their constituents.
“We are pleased to strengthen our customer relationship with Riverside by providing the tools and solutions that help them achieve the City’s objectives of fiscal responsibility and accountability to its citizens,” said Craig Ross, Vice-President, Business Development, Questica Inc. “With our OpenBook Project Explorer for Capital Budgets, the City can now display their capital infrastructure projects on an interactive map while integrating seamlessly with Questica Budget – saving the City time and resources that in the past would have spent time responding to citizen questions about projects in their neighbourhoods.”
OpenBook’s Project Explorer allows local governments to display infrastructure projects through a visual tool, while also providing the ability to share project budgets, actual spending, funding sources, milestones and a variety of project documents such as images, videos and plans.
“Approved changes and additions that are made to projects and budgets, are immediately reflected in OpenBook, and are quickly accessible to the public. The City of Riverside’s decision to implement OpenBook for their data transparency needs was an easy one with OpenBook’s ability to combine powerful data with an intuitive and straight-forward citizen visualization interface,” states Ross.
