The Solomon Islands is an archipelagic state situated in the south-west Pacific Ocean, approximately 2,000 kms to the north-east of Australia and is made up of 992 islands. Solomon Water has its head office in Honiara, the capital city and main commercial centre of the Solomon Islands. It is a state-owned enterprise and provides water and wastewater services to Honiara and some provincial towns.
Solomon Water was relying on a number of disparate systems and manual spread-sheet based processes. The processes were inefficient and time-consuming and were impacting the overall quality and accuracy of the information the Authority relies on to support its business decision-making.
Solomon Water has chosen to replace its existing business systems with the MAGIQ Platform to achieve its vision of a single platform of deeply integrated systems across the organisation.
The new systems will enable Solomon Water to implement best practice financial and administrative processes and significantly improve the quality and transparency of information across the organisation.
Debbie Johnsen, Finance & Administration Manager:
With MAGIQ we will have far greater visibility over our inventory and stock levels – which means we can be a lot more pro-active. We can forward plan for events in a much more efficient and thoughtful way, as well as managing our expenditure more effectively.
