Guiding a Minnesota City Through the Pitfalls of Growth
Carver city leaders realized a more robust financial planning exercise was needed. They needed more than a spreadsheet—they needed to understand the city’s financials, as well as tax impacts to new rates and fees that came with growth and evolving expectations.
“Thanks to Abdo’s forward-thinking guidance and solutions, we feel prepared for the impending challenges of growth.”

A behind-the-numbers view of best practices and holistic thinking.
Simply put, “automation” is the act of automating certain processes within an organization. These processes could include accounts payable and receivable, payroll, and other administrative functions. While automation typically relies on software, it’s not about reducing your organization’s headcount. Instead, it’s about finding ways to eliminate redundancies, paper, and even errors. The result: Your staff members are free to do more of what they were hired to do—and empowered to do it more easily.
Accounts payable is an infamously tedious process. For many cities and local governments, it can be downright overwhelming, especially for those with an overburdened finance department. If your organization is getting bogged down by the flow of vendor invoices and checks, automation could be the solution.
