Case Study: Wairoa District Council and MAGIQ Performance



The Wairoa District is located on the North Island of New Zealand in the northern half of the Hawke’s Bay region.

The District is a picturesque and productive agricultural region. With close proximity to natural attractions such as the stunning Mahia Peninsula, Lake Waikaremoana and the Ruakituri River the District offers an excellent lifestyle for its local residents and many holiday visitors.

The Challenge

Wairoa District Council was seeking to replace its manual spreadsheet based annual and long term financial planning processes. Over time the processes had become increasingly complex and inefficient creating a level of business risk for Council.

The Solution

Wairoa District Council has implemented the MAGIQ Performance software application to achieve a highly efficient and future-proof framework for the delivery of its Annual and 10-year Long Term Financial Plans.

The Benefit

MAGIQ Performance is delivering significant time-savings and improving the overall efficiency of the production of  Council’s Annual and Long Term Plans.

All stakeholders – senior management, cost centre managers, Councillors and the community now have far greater transparency and confidence in the accuracy of the data they are relying on for business decision-making.

Chris Hankey, Financial Planning Manager:

MAGIQ Performance provides automation that will significantly improve the efficiency of the production of future Annual and Long Term Plans.
