Today’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions deliver increased efficiency, improved customer service, and better operational visibility – everything you need to manage a business effectively. Like their private business counterparts, public organizations are fueled by these benefits as the demand for information accessibility, transparency, and security continues to rise.
But, unlike a private company, the purpose behind implementing an ERP system is not to maximize profits. Citizen engagement, cost savings, and practical data usage are the top priorities of most government entities. As a result, they look for ERP systems that support the specific requirements of state and local government agencies, including financial management to provide standardization and accountability; human resource management to streamline HR and payroll; performance budgeting for better planning and decision making; and procurement to automate purchasing and approvals. To make this work within their environment and culture, governments are now moving towards shared platforms and cloud-enabled managed services to facilitate the digital transformation.
