Wairoa District Council is based in New Zealand’s North Island in the Hawke’s Bay region. The word Wairoa is Māori for ‘long water’ and was named after the river that runs through the town. Early settlement in the area included a whaling station and trading post, dealing largely in flax.

In 2016, Rocket Lab established its Orbital Launch Site for its Electron Vehicle. The Electron vehicle is capable of delivering satellites into Low Earth Orbit, using innovative New Zealand technology.

The Challenge

Council’s IT structure was past its contracted support dates.

The Solution

By moving to the MAGIQ Cloud Platform, Wairoa District Council’s infrastructure support responsibilities were released, allowing staff to concentrate on Council’s IT and Cyber Security Strategic Planning tasks.

The Benefits

The MAGIQ Cloud Platform transformed Council’s business by providing the functionality for a mobile, remote workplace. Enabling Council to attract and recruit staff in other geographical locations and reduce office space.

Wairoa District Council use MAGIQ Software’s finance, regulatory, reporting, budgeting and customer service modules. Council will also use the embedded reporting and data functions that are provided with the MAGIQ Cloud Platform. MAGIQ Software will deliver standard APIs so Council can easily connect to their GIS and other third party applications.


Russell McCracken, Information Services Team Leader:
