BOCA RATON, Fla., June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Processing & Imaging, Inc. (API), a developer of business process automation (BPA) and document management (DM) solutions announced availability of their Fiscal Transparency Portal, an easy to use web-based portal specifically designed to address the growing demand for fiscal transparency in City and County Governments.
The Fiscal Transparency Portal from Advanced Processing and Imaging (API) is a Cloud-based service offered to governments as an opportunity to bridge the information gap. With an interface tailored to a local government organization's fiscal records, this Web-based portal provides an immensely simple shortcut to provide an open government transparency solution for the constituents they serve.
With API's Fiscal Transparency Portal, citizens gain an easy to use 'Executive View' of the budget; instant access to public financial data in simple to understand charts and graphs. It's also the perfect tool for local leaders, department heads and internal staff to track revenue and expenditures as the budget year progresses and to see at a glance the fiscal health of the organization… avoiding budget shortfalls.
"As a financial expert I have reviewed and demo'd the top transparency platforms over the past year. I've quickly come to the realization that API's solution offers the greatest ease of usability and functionality to the constituents of a given municipality," says Stephen Bridy, Commissioner, County of Northumberland, PA. "I greatly anticipate offering API's platforms to the constituents of Northumberland County."
API's Portal works as an add-on to existing financial records. Drawing on data from these records without augmenting or changing them, the Fiscal Transparency Portal works like a window placed over your financial history. The Portal transforms raw financial data into charts and graphs with tables specific to certain departments or expenditures, money spent over time, or nearly anything else the concerned citizen would like to visualize.
This process accomplishes several tedious tasks at once, eliminating the repetitive motions normally required after public records requests for financial records. In creating a simple yet comprehensive user interface, you engage citizens who wouldn't have cared before and appease the number-savvy constituent at the same time.
"API's Fiscal Transparency Portal delivers self-serve access to the public financial information without having government staff involved with the process," says Juan Rodriguez, CEO, Advanced Processing & Imaging. "Fiscal Transparency is one of the top objectives for City Mayors and Commissioners to help strengthen trust between government and citizens, and we're excited to assist."
