The FreeBalance Accountability Suite™ is massively configurable and highly extensible meaning that it is able to meet any government need. Many PFM experts don’t see much of a difference between configuration or customization – often referring to any adaptation as “customization”.

- Metrics: Governments can define their own performance metrics, enabling them to track performance against their own objectives and priorities.

- Workflows: The software includes workflow management tools that enable governments to customize the GRM process to their specific needs. Governments can configure workflows to match their specific business processes, including data collection, analysis, and reporting.
