As part of its budgeting push, OpenGov has partnered with Workiva to combine the companies’ software into a single package for government customers.

That means OpenGov will be selling customers not just on its Budget Builder and Intelligence products, but on Workiva’s Wdesk platform as well. The OpenGov products, which are part of its Smart Government Platform, are all about enabling collaboration, tracking changes, and generating content for use in budgeting and decision-making; Wdesk will add on data-linking and user-control functionality.

In a press release, OpenGov billed the expanded offering as a way for local governments to more easily produce documentation such as comprehensive annual financial reports.

“OpenGov will offer Wdesk as part of its complete cloud-based budgeting solution, enabling customers to easily publish budget books based on their preparation done in OpenGov Budget Builder,” the statement reads. “The joint offering will also help governments create CAFR reports, quarterly management reports and other related documents.”
