Why You Need A Municipal ERP

We are proud of our towns and the people who choose to live and work in them. We want to keep them safe and healthy, and we owe it to them to run the most efficient and responsible governments possible. Having to get the most out of limited resources and increasingly limited budgets is one struggle heads of municipalities of all sizes face.

At the same time, we want to be able to support growth. How do we manage all this?

Managing Municipal Growth with a Cloud ERP

The answer lies in the clouds! Not just any cloud technology, but specifically a municipal ERP system, tailored to the unique needs of your municipality.

There are many ERP systems available. One that is specifically designed to integrate all aspects of running a municipality efficiently is where you will find your best match.


We were able to create a Municipal ERP that will empower you with the data you need to make the right decisions and continue to sustainably grow for future generations. We owe this to our deep understanding of a municipality’s needs.

All services and data managed and consolidated in the cloud makes it secure. Not only that, it is accessible to you, no matter where you happen to be. This means you can keep an eye on daily operations, and are empowered to make important decisions without delay, even while out of town.  

This isn’t just about scanning and digitizing documents to reduce paper and filing systems. That process still does not give you access to useful data to make decisions. Implementing an ERP system consolidates all your current systems and data:

  • permits;
  • licences;
  • financial management;
  • payroll.

It also puts all this information at your finger tips, allowing you to make more efficient decisions.

More Valuable Municipal Data

Imagine being able to see at a glance, and with totally accuracy, which intersections in town bring the most complaints (accidents, crime, snow or waste management issues). Or find out which households have valid pet permits. With this simple information, you can make decisions that will best serve your constituents and deliver services that truly reflect their present needs quickly.

We don’t just bring efficiency, but part of cost savings is finding “lost money.” Having systems and processes available to keep track of everything allows you to see where money is being literally left on the table. For example, because of a lack of checks and balances, some late payments could be forgotten and never collected. Imagine how much money could be recovered with the right systems in place?

Municipal ERP is about empowering you by giving you a visibility into all facets of municipal functions where you previously either had none, or data was siloed and disconnected. A municipal ERP gives you one central location that can be securely accessed from anywhere. It also allows you to save time and money for operations that are truly important to and needed by your citizens.
