“I'm very tough when it comes to buying software. In my experience in business and even when I sold software, it ends up being what I call "shelf ware"which sounds good, looks good, but you don't use 99% of the features and it ends up on a proverbial shelf. This stuff is good. It’s is a game-changer for us,” said Mayor Michael Absher from the City of Marion during the August 12, 2019 City Council Meeting. Steve Hale, Treasurer at the City of Marion went on to say that with Questica, “you can design it to meet your needs, to be able to look at your department to get certain information without having to wait to print off financials at the end of the month, when they are already three weeks to a month late. You can get current information with this type of software. We can get a current year projection or go up several years to try and get a feel for how things are trending and where things are going.”
