The most populous city in Louisiana, New Orleans is a city internationally renowned for its culture and history, attracting millions of visitors ever year to its restaurants, festivals and historic neighborhoods, such as the French Quarter. Located along the Mississippi River, New Orleans serves as a major port and is considered the economic and commercial hub for the Gulf Coast region. To ensure the future remains bright for its 400,000 residents, New Orleans wants to cultivate its unique culture by maintaining a strong economy and improving how their local government operates.
New Orleans previously managed their $650 million operating and capital budget using a non-integrated budgeting system. The Questica Budget Suite is an end-to-end budgeting system that will help the City manage their budgeting process with greater efficiency. “The decision for the City of New Orleans to utilize Questica technology is one example of our moving toward a more innovative, cloud-based financial system,” said Norman White, Chief Financial Officer, City of New Orleans.
