Located 200 miles northwest of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Hubbard County, Minnesota prides itself on being a wonderful place to visit, raise a family, vacation or retire. With a population of over 20,000 citizens, the county seat is Park Rapids, with nearby Itasca State Park the source of the Mississippi River and hundreds of pristine lakes adding to the natural beauty of the area.
Frustrated by the manual and repetitive process of preparing a budget with Excel spreadsheets, Hubbard County wanted a solution that could streamline the budgeting process, vastly improve reporting and analytics, and allow staff to work collaboratively.
