Do More with Less:
5 Successful Strategies from Finance Leaders


Is your organization constantly striving to do more with less? Almost universally, public sector agencies now operate under conditions where every dollar and minute must go further. At the same time, they strive to sustain high-quality services for their residents. That dynamic presents an apparent resource paradox – governments everywhere are striving to operate better, faster, and cheaper.

Technology solutions offer the opportunity to upend the paradox. The right technology enables public sector leaders to achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness by reducing the resources required for information collection, storage, and analysis. That, in turn, frees up time and funds, and makes the necessary information available to inform effective decision-making.

Hear from local government finance officers whose agencies have successfully adopted the OpenGov Smart Government Cloud™ in this webinar recording. They share their strategies, experiences, and advice for doing more with less to deliver more effective outcomes for their organizations.

In this video, you will learn:

  • 5 modern approaches to streamlining traditional finance operations.
  • Technology strategies for better budgeting, faster collaboration, and easier information sharing.
  • How governments are using OpenGov to save time, monitor financial performance, and inform their decision-making.
  • How cloud-based software reduces technology costs compared to on-premise software.
