Questica Budget Book powered by CaseWare is a user-friendly and comprehensive document management and financial reporting tool that allows your government agency to create, collaborate, edit, approve and publish your annual budget book faster and easier than ever before.
Our budget book integration brings together two leaders of public finance technology – Questica and CaseWare. Questica Budget is the leading budgeting preparation management software for government agencies, while CaseWare’s government financial reporting database driven solutions are trusted by over 400,000 users in 130 countries and is available in 16 languages.
Unlike other budget book automation tools that use a spreadsheet application with a user interface, the integration between Questica Budget and CaseWare is not a spreadsheet upload – it’s a database driven solution with a direct transfer of data and information from your agency’s budget in Questica Budget to Questica Budget Book in CaseWare.
Collaboration, Workflow and Security
Since multiple individuals and departments need to contribute to annual budget and budget book, Questica Budget Book powered by CaseWare provides seamless collaboration through its workflow and security management feature, ensuring the right individuals have access to their sections, while giving reviewers and approvers version control and a clear history of any changes through the process.
With Questica Budget Book, you get the power of CaseWare which along with strength of its single database, is a solution that supports a controlled, auditable, double-entry adjusting entry system. The solution supports the classification of entries, multiple concurrent grouping mechanisms, built-in diagnostics and rounding features, and automatic notifications when data or information doesn’t balance. Users can drill-down into the Budget Book report to review supporting documents to show which accounts comprise the value. Centralized tracking to questions, issues comments at all document or row/value level ensures no problems go unresolved.
Questica Budget Book powered by CaseWare allows users to automate and easily update their standard data, documents, charts and graphics. Page numbers, indexing along with sections and exhibits are constantly updated to ensure the Budget Book is always accurate. With the ability to apply your agencies branding (logo, colors, fonts, page formatting) and other visuals (images) means you can produce and output a professional publish-ready PDF from the system (complete with bookmarks). The Questica Budget Book also allows users to export in XBRL format.
