The Finance Department is typically responsible for processing water bills, sanitation billing, parking citations, business tax receipts, accounts receivable, and more. They can also cover tasks such as issue dog licenses, register massage parlors, even selling bus tickets. An efficient finance department will use GIS data for monitoring all of the above, as well as property taxes. GIS can combine with CAMA, enabling improved management of taxes and finances. When dealing with business licensing and sales tax monitoring, staff need to know if they are in the city limits; using GIS can provide them this information quickly and easily.

GIS can also be used as a work management software. Employees can track hours worked, material, equipment used, and location of work. However, in order to ensure the new GIS functions properly, a plan must be implemented. GTG focuses on GIS Strategic Planning for clients to ensure their GIS is functioning efficiently and accurately across all departments.
