The Problem

After struggling with a financial system that would inconsistently write checks, freeze and shut down, Montgomery County EWD, decided that it needed to replace their old automated system for something new and easy to use.

FundWare

The Organization decided to purchase FundWare for implementation. The Organization preferred FundWare because it was a less costly solution and offered a good Grant/Cost control package. Montgomery County EWD also selected FundWare’s General Ledger, Accounts Payable with Purchase Orders Modules, and F9 Report Writer. The Organization was pleased to learn that its current solution provider, Software Systems, Inc., was licensed to sell the FundWare solution.

Benefits

Rich Weidner, Fiscal Officer for Montgomery County EWD, believes that the organization is “so much more productive using F9 reporting.” Montgomery County is also able to produce checks and Accounts Payable Payments on the day that is promised, unlike the staff was able to do with its previous system. Also, there are no delays when processing and check writing.
