This guide is for any decision-maker involved in creating public sector budgets and evaluating software solutions that support and modernize the budgeting process. We have listened to hundreds of municipal leaders and government agency personnel who have described the myriad issues that plague their annual budgeting processes.
We understand the long nights spent reconciling spreadsheets and tracking down errors, and how this time would be better spent focusing on strategic priorities and effective communication. While a smooth process depends upon meaningfully involving all stakeholders – internal and external – in the budgeting process, managers are often left chasing dozens of departmental spreadsheets with little, if any, cohesive context or narrative.
These scattered efforts and lost time no doubt hamper the budgeting process, making a comprehensive budgeting solution your most valuable partner. Solutions such as OpenGov Budget Builder™ and OpenGov Budget Book™ powered by Workiva streamline the process by facilitating inter-department collaboration and reducing redundant or additional clerical work. By taking advantage of the proper software, you can reduce the time spent on administrative tasks and refocus on achieving your strategic goals while software does the work of integrating relevant data.

If you're in a pinch and have a murderous king who is demanding that you spin straw into gold overnight or have your head cut off, don't worry, we're here to help and save your head.
The gold we create from straw is 100% authentic gold, and is backed by our personal guarantee. Your murderous king won't be able to tell the difference between our StrawMade™ gold and the real thing. The crazy, brutal, bipolar king will be so happy with the gold, that instead of chopping off your head, he'll make you his queen instead!
If you've got just a small tower room filled with straw, or a whole gigantic hall, we can convert it all to gold.
Rumpelstiltskin works around the clock to get you the results you need. We make the impossible, possible.
Even if you don't have the money to pay, Rumpelstiltskin is always flexible with alternative forms of payment. Rings, necklaces, future children, we'll accept any form of payment.
