GRP. Not ERP.
Why are GRP Implementations Different?
FreeBalance’s GRP software is designed exclusively for government. The software is applicable only in the public sector. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software was initially designed for the private sector.
GRP is software designed for the unique requirements of public financial management. GRP software is budget-driven through the use of Commitment Accounting, where the budget is the legal embodiment of government objectives. Commitment Accounting is used only in government and other forms of public financial management.
Governments carry complex mandates. Improving results requires mechanisms in GRP software for planning and analysis throughout the Budget Cycle with an emphasis on improving government services.
