$30 Million Revenue Increase Assisted by Modern Technology

The Treasurer’s office needed to cut down the time spent closing their books, drastically reduce the number of manual activities their team conducted and find a solution that would facilitate audit compliance while increasing revenue. Clearwater’s automated data aggregation and reconciliation process made it possible for the Treasurer’s office to add alternative assets to their portfolio and helped the office increase their revenue by $30 million.
