The best part of using BS&A is that it is easy to learn while at the same time having all of the features or the right mix of features to allow each user to do everything they need to do.
I had an employee with 40 years of seniority and minimal computer experience who did not want to change the way things were done. The employee gave the BS&A system a try and quickly learned how to process a requisition, print a purchase order and look up the balances, the kind of things the employee needed to make their job better. You don’t need a degree in accounting or need to have more then just basic computer skills to use the software.
The BS&A software makes information on the computer available to everyone, not just the finance department. Council members, department heads, and city employees all have learned to use BS&A software to retrieve the information they want.
