Benchcube Analytics at UBCM
UPDATE: We were at the 2017 Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) conference on September 27-28 at the Vancouver Convention Center booth 224. Many stopped by, were roped in by Lori, and had an awesome exploration of their financial reality. In many cases, the story was extremely positive (our take-away: well-run municipalities stop by booths at the UBCM trade show!)
Benchcube Analytics empowers local governments make better decisions. It does this by providing tools that help decision makers—elected officials, senior leadership team, other key staff—understand complex financial information.
situational awareness (sɪʧuˈeɪʃənəl əˈwɛrnəs): the ability to identify, process, and comprehend the critical elements of information about what is happening to the team with regards to the mission. More simply, it's knowing what is going on around you.
Do you want to be a Rockstar City Manager (or CFO)? Provide your department heads and elected officials with better information to do their jobs. And do this at a cost that is realistic and sustainable, even for a smaller community.
See our web-based visual dashboards in action. Drop us a noteand we will show you how Benchcube's dashboards are being used by your colleagues to explore and understand their financial reality. You will see how with a few clicks your decision makers can answer some critical questions :
Where is the most bang for the buck? Where should our managers be looking to trim costs?
What are best practices for service delivery? Is there evidence that we are ahead of or behind the pack?
Consituents are asking for Service X. What is the annual cost per household of X in our peer group?
The Benchcube team is currently small. This is deliberate and is based on a start-up philosophy articulated in Rework.
