Stimulus 360 allows agencies to easily allocate funds for the creation of new jobs, track incoming funds from national agencies and manage and report on funded projects. “The Microsoft Stimulus360 solution can help public agencies track funded programs, monitor progress, and provide intuitive views of the data for different audiences,” according to Microsoft.

“The solution also supports key performance indicators (KPIs) and other government-backed performance metrics, automated workflow, and comprehensive analysis across consolidated data sources,” according to the Microsoft.

The program includes geospatial features that link data and mapping capabilities, integration with Microsoft application including Outlook Express and Excel, and automatic capture of events and actions.
