IgniteTRX Financial System Software

The IgniteTRX Financial System software has been built to the requirements of the local public sector, using open source technology and toolkits. An enterprise view of system operations is the objective lens through which we approach operational and business automation for local government.

The cornerstone of this view and emergent application architecture is the IgniteTRX Core, a centralized “global” data store that facilitates data access across the enterprise and eliminates the inefficiencies of disparate data storage.
