Florida SouthWestern State College (“FSW”) is located in Fort Myers and is the largest higher education institute in Southwest Florida. Serving over 22,000 students each year, FSW offers nationally ranked, career-focused academic programs, including two-year and four-year degrees and professional certifications. With 96% of graduating students gaining employment or moving on to higher levels of education, FSW continues its mission of providing academic excellence and hands-on training to ensure the future success of its students.
FSW wanted to reduce the redundancy and manual processes that made preparing their budgets time-consuming. In particular, the College required a solution that would work with their Ellucian Banner financial system to help them better understand how to use their $148 million budget. Questica Budget is a cloud-based budgeting solution that gives FSW the functionality they need to prepare budgets with greater accuracy and efficiency, plus have access to robust reporting features, forecasting and scenario modeling. Questica is an Ellucian Technology Partner and is badged Ethos Connected.
Questica OpenBook is a data visualization tool that integrates directly with Questica Budget and transforms budget data into engaging visuals for improving communication and sharing budget information with stakeholders. As well, Budget Book powered by CaseWare is a comprehensive document management and financial reporting tool that allows the College to assemble financial information and publish a professional Budget Book without the countless hours normally required.
Questica is pleased to provide Florida SouthWestern State College with an end-to-end budgeting solution that gives them greater control over their budgets and new tools for communicating budget information to their stakeholders.
