Justify budget requests.

Take the guesswork out of the budgeting process. Back up budget requests with clear data and accurate projections. Run multiple scenarios to make the best recommendation to council: What would happen if we do nothing? What could we do with a limited budget? How much would it cost to improve the overall condition of our assets?

Prioritize projects.

Run scenarios for any asset. Use the data to prioritize projects—maximizing impact while spending efficiently. Create a 5-year pavement plan, pulling funds from different budget categories. Understand how much you can improve your wastewater facilities with a limited budget. A few clicks and you’ll have all the data at your fingertips.

"Our budget doesn’t get cut. The reason it doesn’t get cut is because our council has a lot of confidence in the numbers."
