The Kristin School an independent co-educational school located in Albany, Auckland. The school was founded in 1973 by a small group of North Shore parents and is owned by the Kristin School Charitable Trust. The school is non-denominational and welcomes students from all cultures and backgrounds.

Providing a dual qualification pathway, Kristin School was the first school in New Zealand to introduce the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Kristin’s proud record of success as a leading IB school has allowed students to gain entry to some of the world’s most prestigious universities. Kristin is committed to developing an international perspective and a sense of global awareness.


The Challenge

The Kristin School sought a budgeting and reporting solution because their budgeting processes were based on a maze of spreadsheets which imposed a high risk of transposition error and a risk of key data being reported in ways that were not linked and consistent.


The Solution

The Kristin School implemented the MAGIQ Performance budgeting and reporting solution upon recommendation from another school. The solution was chosen for its ability to effectively integrate with the school’s Synergetic system and the fact that the solution was easy to implement and simple to use.


The Benefits

The school now has a single source of truth for financial budgeting, reporting and forecasting processes.


“We now have a single source of truth for budgeting and reporting which is important for the integrity of reporting and assuring the users of the validity of the reports. This will enable us to forecast the financial impact of different scenarios more reliably and efficiently, to support good decision making.

“The key strength of the software is that it is easy to use. Plus, all of the data is linked and is kept current in a very simple manner. The software is also very easy to navigate.” Nigel Wilkinson, Director of Business Services.
