Questica selected by City of New Orleans, Louisiana
AUSTIN, Texas — GTY Technology Holdings Inc. (“GTY”), a leading provider of SaaS/Cloud solutions for the public sector, announced today that its budgeting unit, Questica Inc. (“Questica”) has been selected by the City of New Orleans, Louisiana to implement its Questica Budget Suite solution.
The most populous city in Louisiana, New Orleans is a city internationally renowned for its culture and history, attracting millions of visitors ever year to its restaurants, festivals and historic neighborhoods, such as the French Quarter. To ensure the future remains bright for its 400,000 residents, New Orleans wants to cultivate its unique culture by maintaining a strong economy and improving how their local government operates.
Through a partnership between GTY and Infor, a global leader in business cloud software, New Orleans discovered the powerful functionality of Questica Budget Suite, an end-to-end budgeting system that will help them manage their budgeting process with greater efficiency. New Orleans previously managed their $650 million operating and capital budget using a non-integrated budgeting system. “The decision for the City of New Orleans to utilize Questica technology is one example of our moving toward a more innovative, cloud-based financial system,” said Norman White, Chief Financial Officer, City of New Orleans.
Questica Budget provides extensive features for budget development and enables local governments to discover key budget insights that may have been hidden in a spreadsheet. Questica Performance offers additional value with measures and scorecards for tracking and evaluating the City’s programs and services. Additionally, Budget Book powered by Caseware allows the City to publish a Budget Book that meets the standards for the GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award without the countless hours of work normally required.
By choosing Questica Budget Suite, the City of New Orleans has a best-in-class budgeting solution that integrates seamlessly with their Infor ERP system and will improve the budgeting process for greater efficiency and insight into their budget data.
“Questica is on a mission to drive budget transformation in the public sector and help cities better manage their critical financial processes,” said Stephen Rohleder, Chairman and CEO of GTY Technology. “The Questica team champions innovation and building solutions that can solve the diverse and evolving challenges of our clients. Building on GTY’s partnership with Infor, Questica delivers budgeting and transparency solutions to government agencies using Infor to help them successfully budget for better outcomes.”
