The finance team at the Village of Glen Carbon, Illinois manages a budget of $25 million to cater to their population of 13,000 residents. This means each decision they make must prioritize optimal allocation of resources and improving efficiencies.
Their previous system recorded budget data on Excel sheets and their enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, which was turning out to be too time-consuming. The team chose Questica Budget, including Questica Performance and Questica OpenBook, as they were keen on its intuitive dashboard and performance tracking features to help streamline tedious budgetary processes.
Questica Budget will allow them to modernize their current processes, access essential insights to optimize their budget allocation, and make more informed data-driven decisions. It was also crucial to the finance team to simplify their reporting process and generate thorough reports, complete with notes, attachments, and justifications wherever necessary. Most importantly, the team can look forward to eliminating piecemeal solutions, seamlessly tracking performance, and improving reporting for increased transparency.
