Kimba District Council is a rural service town on the Eyre Highway at the top of Eyre Peninsula in the Australian state of South Australia. The town is well known for its tourist attractions including a Big Gala, a sculpture of Edward John Eyre and Wylie, the ‘Kimba Town Tourist Walk’ (providing 35 places of interest) and an impressive mural across its local wheat silos. The town is also known for being half way between Sydney and Perth and provides a great base to explore Gawler Ranges National Park.

The Challenge

Kimba District Council was using software that was owned and operated by a group of 6 South Australian Councils. Over time, the system had become inflexible and was lacking in functionality – so it began to lose ownership, driving Council to tender for a viable ERP solution.

The Solution

Kimba District Council purchased and implemented the MAGIQ Cloud ERP.

The MAGIQ Cloud ERP is a native Cloud, Software as a Service (SaaS) public administration platform designed to meet Council’s financial and legislative requirements within a simple, easy to use Cloud environment. 

The Benefits

Council’s purchase order and service request processes were paper based, entailing multiple transactions, lengthy processing times with plenty of room for errors. Now Council can complete such tasks online and  the whole process is streamlined – saving paper handling and allowing the organisation to keep track of everything and not have to re-enter data.

The MAGIQ Cloud Platform has allowed Council employees to work, connect and collaborate the way they want to – at anytime, from anywhere and on any device – increasing productivity and enabling operational efficiencies. 

Deb Larwood, Chief Executive Officer:

 “When we began the tender process we hadn’t considered a Cloud-based solution. MAGIQ Software’s Cloud offering was an exceptional, standout option and the software was readily available and backed up regularly off site.”
