Central Community College acquires centralized budgeting through Questica Budget


Central Community College is a two-year Nebraska public college with three campuses in Columbus, Grand Island, and Hastings. Serving a group of 25 counties, the college has learning centers in Holdrege, Kearney, and Lexington and is one of six regional community colleges in the state.


To better serve their campus community of 6,000 students and 600 staff, Central Community College required a budgeting solution that could provide efficient workflows, enhanced reporting, and extensive forecasting for their $60,000,000 annual budget.


Their preferred solution would also enable full integration with their current ERP system — Ellucian Colleague.


In partnership with Questica Budget, Central Community College has acquired a budgeting system that allows for modernized workflows, improved financial reporting and forecasting, and full data transparency — without the use of Excel spreadsheets. They’ve also attained full synergy between Questica Budget and their Elucian Colleague ERP, allowing a completely unified budgeting process.


Questica has focused on providing budgeting and forecasting software exclusively to the public sector for nearly 25 years. Questica is a full-service partner, where in-house staff are responsible for software development, implementation, training, and post-implementation customer care.


Questica’s higher education clients include the Madison Area Technical College, Wisconsin; Humboldt State University, California; and the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, Florida.


Questica’s Operating, Personnel, Capital, and OpenBook modules provide the Central Community College with data-driven budgeting and decision-making through a single source of data truth. Central Community College will now have absolute control at every stage of their budget lifecycle.
