What issues are you facing ?

We need to get information out of our system that our current system will not allow.

If you have outgrown your generic accounting software package, you may be ready for CenterPoint Fund Accounting for Municipals, which offers tools made specifically for fund accounting and municipals. The Statement of Revenue and Expenditures in CenterPoint follows the recommended format by the Government Accounting Standards Board. There is also a six-month customizable financial statement that is complete and accurate. Other functions such as utility billing and payroll can also be integrated, saving your municipal from double entry or additional work.
Our system cannot handle budgeting and information tracking by department and fund.

The software allows an unlimited number of funds. Budget figures can be maintained by fund and by department, giving department heads or managers the information they need to quickly compare their actual spending to the budget.
