Collect, Create, Communicate
Our Budget Cycle Management suite is designed to meet the specific needs of the local government budgeting process and to complement any existing accounting system.
We think about budgeting as a 3-step process: collect, create, and communicate.
Gather capital, personnel, and operational requests from department heads.
Get started by having department heads fill out fully-integrated, easy-to-use, web-based forms instead of cumbersome Excel or paper forms.
Review and approve capital, personnel and operational budget requests immediately, rather than searching for them in your email.
Build capital, personnel, and operational budgets efficiently.
Collaborate with department heads directly within ClearGov products, keeping all conversations well documented and increasing efficiency.
Use powerful visualizations to inform decision making and build your multi-year, multi-scenario capital, personnel, and operational budgets.
Publish modern, easy-to-understand websites to tell your story.
Publish website-based budget books and transparency centers with a single click to communicate your budgets with the public.
Export reports (pre-built and custom) to meet the demands of internal and external stakeholders and systems.
