What Our Clients Say

Bottom line: A great product! We find the software very straight forward, intuitive and easy to use. We have upgraded the software using our own IT technicians and Tempest technicians, in both cases the implementation of the upgrades has been very smooth with minimal downtime. The professionalism of the training is always high, as the instructor creates an environment that is both informational and fun. Tempest strives to continually offer great software backed by their technical support and training necessary to make their product an industry leader. Fernando Pimentel

The District of Saanich has been using the suite of Tempest applications since 2000. As a Tempest user, the Saanich Tempest User Group Coordinator and one of the members of the Tempest User Group Executive Committee, I can say that this product has been clearly designed for use by local governments. It is both easy to learn and easy to use. The product is excellent as is the emphasis by Tempest on providing good customer service. The annual User Conference is great! Doug Stein

Manager of Collections (retired), District of Saanich

The City of St. Albert has relied heavily on the suite of Tempest modules for the last nine years as one of the City’s major corporate financial software applications. Tempest implementation staff have worked closely with staff at the City of St. Albert to ensure that the software meets the requirements for Alberta. Tempest customer support staff are knowledgeable about the software and extremely responsive going above and beyond on many occasions. User feedback is taken seriously by Tempest and incorporated in new releases. The City of St. Albert’s experience with Tempest has been very positive. Carole Rowe

Manager of Application Services/Information Technology Services, City of St. Albert

The most important issue is that our end users are happy with the Tempest system. The modules are consistent and user-friendly. Implementation was smooth and easy once our information was available. Tempest is great to work with and we have found their on-going support unmatched…They have a fantastic team. Dave Baines
