Automating the Budget Book for Local Government

Key Takeaways

Join Kathleen Smith of the City of Fort Wayne as she shares how her team worked with F.H. Black & Company Incorporated to cut their budget book preparation process by 75% with the Workiva platform.

Introducing technology to improve processes takes the strain off accounting teams, leaving them more time to focus on analyzing data. Allowing your teams to shine makes for happier departments and helps keep your accounting talent while producing more accurate work in less time.

After this session, you will:

  • Understand the current state of the typical government accounting office that uses largely manual processes
  • Recognize how manual processes introduce risk and inefficiencies to your accounting office 
  • Describe how the City of Fort Wayne’s accounting office transformed its process, saved time on tasks, instilled more reliability in their data, created more value-added work, and delivered better results to stakeholders
  • Explain how the Workiva platform can be the cornerstone of improving your financial and budgeting processes
