At Caselle, we serve the Main Streets of America—the towns and cities, governments and municipalities. Communities just like yours that grow and change. We never stop getting to know you, and we make great software systems that bring your community together in efficiency, security, flexibility and unity.
Since 1978 Caselle has been dedicated to our adage of, “Commitment to Community”. We take that commitment seriously in everything we do. Because of the long-term nature of this association between Caselle and our community partners, we strive for an open transparent relationship that continues to grow and strengthen through the years.
Caselle software is a total municipal accounting solution. The software is highly flexible which means that there are usually multiple ways of performing the same tasks. Often the software can be adapted to the user so that even those that have a harder time with data entry and report generation will find Caselle intuitive and easy to use. The highly rated Caselle checklist feature is included in every module and can be used to create a step-by-step process especially designed for the individual end user. With this feature you can guarantee that the same process is run successfully every time no matter who is assigned to do it. This is especially helpful for new employees or when an employee is out on leave. Because Caselle modules are fully integrated, you can be sure that all the various ledgers and reports are consistent, balanced and will reconcile across all departments. Year-end auditing is a breeze for municipalities using Caselle.
