REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and ORLANDO, Fla., June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- OpenGov, the leader in government performance management technology, and Superion, a leading provider of public sector software solutions, today announced a partnership to modernize government budgeting, financial reporting, and open data capabilities through the OpenGov Smart Government Cloud™. With the integration, Superion customers will be able to seamlessly access their data in OpenGov to drive better planning and budgeting, evidence-based decision making, and citizen engagement.
"Government officials and citizens alike deserve the open and efficient operations that modern cloud technology can deliver," said Zac Bookman, CEO and Co-Founder of OpenGov. "By partnering with Superion, we're providing a path for government CIOs and IT directors to bring their data into the cloud and take advantage of tools that can dramatically improve budgeting and planning workflows."
Governments leveraging the integration will benefit from more collaborative and intuitive budget planning capabilities, improved internal data visualization, and open data tools to share important information with citizens and elected officials. Governments using OpenGov cloud solutions have seen upwards of 50 percent time savings on budgeting and 80-90 percent time savings on reporting while improving outcomes for communities.
"We're excited that this partnership with OpenGov strengthens our capacity to transform how local governments leverage their budgeting, planning and administration capabilities while enhancing community connections," said Kevin Lafeber, President and CCO of Superion. "Together we are providing innovative solutions that help meet the growing demands for responsive, modern, and transparent government."
Integration with Superion and the OpenGov Smart Government Cloud enables seamless data updates and allows governments to:
- Collaborate more easily during the budget process and produce stunning budget books;
- Create and share operational dashboards that visualize targets and actual performance, helping government employees and elected officials optimize spending and better understand performance throughout the year;
- Publish compelling, easy-to-understand, interactive transparency sites that engage constituents and provide them with better government visibility.
Steuben County, NY, a joint customer of both Superion and OpenGov, is looking forward to the benefits of the integration. City Manager Jack Wheeler says, "OpenGov cloud applications help us simplify budget planning, improve internal data management, and will make important information easily accessible to citizens and elected officials."
In addition to the County's transparency portal which will allow residents to better understand the County's finances, Steuben County also uses OpenGov Budgeting, the world's first public sector cloud budgeting solution, to simplify the budget process, and enable better cross-departmental collaboration for the county's $177 million budget.
