Kaipara District Council is located in the Northland Region on the north western side of the north island of New Zealand. The district is largely rural with a population of approximately 24,000 living in small settlements scattered amongst the rolling hills or nestled on the shores of the harbour, including the harbour villages of Tinopai, Pahi and Whakapirau. The local economy is supported by farming and forestry.

The Challenge

Kaipara District Council was relying on ageing storage infrastructure that was beyond its support date. The Council’s team is only small and staff often work from home and have a crossover of responsibilities.

The Solution

Council has chosen to move its on-premise MAGIQ Software system to be hosted in a complete Cloud environment.The entire Council will operate its finance and administration, business performance management from the Cloud.

The Benefits

The Council has experienced many benefits by adopting a Cloud strategy. The benefits include reduced infrastructure costs and peace of mind knowing their data is securely stored in the AWS system. Staff can swiftly and remotely access business tools from anywhere, increasing organisational effectiveness.

Michael Juer, IT Project Manager
“When we went live with MAGIQ Cloud, staff could not believe the speed and efficiency they experienced. For example, the ability to complete purchase order approvals from home without having to use Remote Desktop Services, it was such a pleasure for them – they were over the moon.”
