Simplify processes from request to payment

With an integrated general ledger, your district is able to improve the efficiency of business operations with templates for journal entries, easy reversals, the ability to work in multiple periods, drill downs, and the ability to attach and view documents associated with transactions and/or vendor payments.

Work flow processes guide through day-to-day financial functions including account management, purchase orders, and payments; all while displaying the summary or detailed information needed to make informed financial decisions at a glance.
