As part of continually improving our products and finding new ways to improve the experience for our customers and also their constituents, we're excited to announce a big step forward to our Financial Transparency Suite.
A New Generation of Open Budget
We've spoken with many of you, our customers, and listened to your valuable feedback. We're excited to present a new version of Open Budget which features the following.
- A beautiful new design which creates a better experience for internal staff, decision makers, and constituents. This new Open Budget app is designed to be used on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.
- Present Operating Revenues, Operating Expenses, and the Capital Improvement Plan on a single site.
- Compare Budget-to-Actuals, or comparisons between any three types of amounts, instantly.
- Increased flexibility in schema requirements and mapping your data to the general ledger and chart of accounts for a wide range of municipalities.

Customers on the existing, pre-April 2015 version of Open Budget are not automatically transitioned. Please contact your Account Manager or Socrata Support for further details.
