FreeBalance will be showcasing its Government Resource Planning (GRP) technology at Canada’s Government Technology Event (GTEC). GTEC takes place at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa from October 5-8. The GTEC conference is focused on leveraging and integrating Government 2.0 technologies to drive service transformation. This year’s theme is “Government 2.0 Service Mash-ups” and organizers hope to demonstrate how the private sector concept of mash-ups applies to public sector services.
The theme and focus of GTEC 2009 is well aligned with the FreeBalance vision for financial management in governments around the world. The FreeBalance Accountability Suite is designed specifically for public financial management and covers the entire budget cycle including budget preparation and budget execution. FreeBalance solutions are built using technology that supports the unique and evolving requirements of government, including the need for enhanced Government Resource Planning (GRP), Government Performance Management, Government 2.0, Shared Services and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).
The unique FreeBalance vision for the future of Government Resource Planning combines transaction management with content and collaboration. Accountability can be effectively achieved through GRP systems that integrate collaboration, documents, content, budgets and transactions.
Members of the FreeBalance team will be available at Booth 1010 on October 6th and 7th from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to discuss the FreeBalance web-based solutions for public financial management and to introduce clients to the new FreeBalance Customer Exchange. The customer exchange was launched to meet a growing demand for collaboration and knowledge transfer among FreeBalance customers. The on-line community engages members with advanced Web 2.0 technologies designed to promote user interaction, information sharing and awareness of good practices.
