Extend the Life of Your
Accounting System


Learn how government leaders are accelerating decision making with OpenGov

You need your accounting system more than ever. Governments must inform decisions with data and insights as they face tightening resources. Although even the oldest accounting system logs transactions, when it comes to creating and sharing reports essential for management, no matter your system’s age, it siloes data and creates roadblocks.

ERP systems often lack the reporting tools necessary to inform management and guide key decisions, creating a continuous need to manually pull data into Excel to prepare reports and answer common questions. Switching ERPs will not solve this problem.

This video features case studies from municipal leaders Patti Hetrick and Connie Maxwell on how they are using new cloud-based reporting and analytics software to fulfill their agency’s reporting and analysis needs without switching or upgrading ERP/accounting systems.

This video demonstrates how you can use OpenGov to:

  • Simplify management reporting for the entire organization
  • Support your budget teams with better information
  • Streamline your annual audit process
