GTY Technology Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: GTYH) (“GTY”), a leading provider of cloud solutions for the public sector, announced today that its budgeting unit Questica has expanded its client base in Washington State with the addition of Douglas County and the City of Seattle’s Parks and Human Services Departments.

“Questica’s budgeting and transparency solutions empower public sector organizations by streamlining their budgeting processes, improving performance and helping them to meaningfully engage with citizens,” said TJ Parass, CEO of GTY Technology. “Questica has two decades of experience creating innovative solutions to meet the public sector’s challenges and drive digital transformation. The Questica Budget suite provides one source of data truth for better data-driven decisions that deliver significant outcomes for our clients.”

Douglas County is situated east of Seattle, Washington and has a population of over 39,000 citizens. By choosing to purchase Questica Budget, a solution specifically designed for the public sector, the county will replace repetitive, manual processes with a collaborative system that promotes streamlined efficiency and provides more opportunity for Douglas County to gain important insights across their $60 million budget.

“Questica Budget is a feature-rich budgeting solution that helps public sector organizations successfully take charge of budget assembly, tracking, analysis and reporting,” said Craig Ross, President & CEO at Questica. “We take pride in offering a best-of-breed solution that contributes to the success of our clients and their constituents.”

Seattle is the largest city in the State of Washington with over 747,000 citizens living in its thriving community. A customer since 2018, the City of Seattle is expanding its use of the Questica Budget suite, a comprehensive end-to-end budgeting and transparency solution, beyond the Central Budget Office and Council Staff to produce their $6.5 billion budget. Questica Budget will now be leveraged to support the budgeting processes for both the Parks and Recreation and Human Services Departments.
