Yass Valley Council chooses MAGIQ

Yass Valley Council located in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales has chosen to implement the MAGIQ Enterprise council management system.

MAGIQ Enterprise is a fully web-based, cloud deliverable suite of financial administration and council management systems. The product suite features comprehensive Finance, Payroll, Regulatory & Compliance, Revenue & Property, Community Engagement and Human Resources systems.

Council’s decision to implement new business systems was driven by dissatisfaction with the customer service and product development provided by its existing vendor; leading to a lack of confidence in the vendor’s ability to meet Council’s future business needs.

“As an organisation we’ve recognised that we need to be progressive and fully embrace change in order to achieve best practice and meet our community’s increasingly high service expectations,” said Sharon Hutch, Director of Finance and Corporate, Yass Valley Council.

“In selecting a business systems vendor, we were looking for a similar commitment to best practice and innovation. We’re confident MAGIQ Software is the right vendor for Yass Valley.”

Yass Valley Council has used the MAGIQ Documents software suite for several years.

 “We’re incredibly excited to be the first council in NSW to implement MAGIQ Enterprise.  We see this as a fantastic opportunity for all of our stakeholders; our community, our staff and our elected representatives,” said Hutch.

“Frankly there has been a real lack of viable alternative system options available and we see MAGIQ Software presenting an enormous opportunity for the local government industry, particularly for smaller councils like Yass Valley.”

Council will also implement the MAGIQ Performance Suite of Budgeting, Reporting and Analytics and Strategic Planning software to improve the efficiency of Council’s strategic, operational and statutory reporting processes.

“At the end of the day it’s all about resources,” says Sharon. “For smaller councils in particular, our resources are limited, however we still need to meet the legislative and compliance requirements of our industry. So, we need to work smarter and we’re confident MAGIQ is going to help us achieve that.”
