Questica Budget Book powered by CaseWare

Budget Books are arguably the most challenging report prepared in Finance/Budget departments:
  1. They are much larger than a typical set of financial statements or even CAFRs.  Often, budget books are many hundreds of pages in length.
  2. Extensive collaboration from dozens of individuals typically adds to the complexity. Analysts contribute narrative, explanation and context, which must be reviewed, compiled and formatted to fit into the overall book cohesively.
  3. There is considerable emphasis on non-financial data. Budget books often include statistical information, graphs and graphics that must be integrated in just the right place and updated periodically. 

Questica Budget users can easily solve these challenges with Questica's Budget Book powered by CaseWare.
