GBA Master Series, Inc. and Best Software, Inc. announced a strategic partnership to offer the GBA Master Series line of infrastructure and fleet management software along with Best's new FASgov Suite of integrated asset management solutions.
The GBA Master Series software has long been used by local governments to inventory their infrastructure and fleet assets, document asset conditions, process service requests, and prosecute work orders for asset maintenance and repairs. Asset managers can easily identify and prioritize needed improvements, determine the costs associated with these improvements, and produce meaningful reports.
FASgov was designed specifically to assist government and educational institutions in complying with Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) Statements 34/35. Built on Best's industry-proven FAS Asset Accounting(TM) and FAS Asset Inventory products, it is ideally suited for the management and depreciation of fixed assets.
"Together, we feel the GBA Master Series and FASgov applications offer the most effective tools available to local governments tasked with compliance with the GASB standards," said Jim Graham, Vice President for GBA Master Series. "Regardless of the chosen compliance strategy, these tools will provide the necessary information, perform the required calculations, and produce the appropriate reports. And most importantly, these tools will provide local governments real value and practical benefits in their day-to-day business operations indefinitely."
"This partnership not only introduces more organizations to Best's industry-leading FAS solutions, it also offers outstanding infrastructure and fleet management solutions to our existing customer base," said Chris Donie, Director of FAS product marketing. "It will allow government entities, non-profit organizations, and school districts alike to depreciate a full range of fixed assets, from software to school buses, in compliance with GASB 34/35."
