At the end of the day, week, month, year, decade – your job as a state or local government employee is to improve the lives of the citizens you serve. But, as the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility.

Budgets are often tight, and you must provide full transparency into how you are spending every dollar to maintain accountability. But the difficult truth is that standard accounting systems aren’t flexible enough to address the complex needs of governments. Additionally—and especially post-COVID-19 as employees continue to work from home—many governments are recognizing that a robust, flexible, cloud-based ERP is essential to the well-being of them and their citizens.

Microsoft Dynamics 365: Built to Address State & Local Government Challenges

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is an integrated ERP and financial management solution that fully supports the complex accounting processes typical of governments, including:

  • Budget planning
  • Procurement and sourcing
  • Project accounting
  • Grants management
  • Inventory tracking
  • Asset management
