Lay a Solid Foundation for Your Public Sector Organization
Small and midsize public sector entities have the same need for robust and functionally rich enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions as their larger counterparts. Unlike those larger entities, small and midsize public service organizations have limited resources, both in budget and people, and these resources get squeezed year after year.
Regardless of size, all public sector organizations face mounting pressures, including:
- Increasing constituent expectations for higher quality services
- Demands for stricter accountability and greater transparency
- Ever-changing governmental reporting and funding regulations to which they must comply
- Islands of legacy information not integrated into a single IT landscape, resulting in inefficient operations, inaccurate data, and inadequate support for strategic decisions
