CGI Advantage® Financial Management

Improving controls to drive enhanced accountability

State and local governments seek to increase efficiency, transparency, accountability and access to information. However, many organizations struggle with financial management solutions that do not meet their needs or support their business processes. As a result, they face extensive customizations, process modifications and unpredictable costs.

What governments need is a solution that works the way they work by providing consistent accounting rules across all financial transactions and tracking/controlling both internal and external funding sources. Governments also need a solution that provides real-time commitment of departmental budgets and offers immediate access to performance indicators.

CGI Advantage provides a solution that will meet those business needs. At CGI, we believe state and local organizations should not be confined to the rigid structure of traditional commercial financial management applications. Drawing upon best practices and experience working for government since 1976, we deliver a web-based financial management solution that is built exclusively for the business of government, thereby reducing the need for customization and lowering the total cost of ownership. With CGI Advantage Financial Management, governments are meeting their goals to:

  • Improve accountability and transparency
  • Provide consistent accounting rules across all financial transactions
  • Track and control internal and external funding sources
