Palmerston North City Council is embarking on a cloud-first approach to its future operations, fuelled by a strategic five-year collaboration with Civica.
The Council is moving to a “as a service” framework, with Civica’s flagship solution, Authority Altitude, at its core.
It says the new system will result in a greater level of trust and confidence that Council is properly managing its financial assets and processes in a resilient cloud-based solution.
“The move to Authority Altitude is one of the single biggest organisation wide changes we’ve been through in the past 15 years,” said Palmerston North City Council’s Chief Financial Officer, Cameron McKay.
“It was important to us that we implemented a future fit solution with a vendor who would work in a partnership model.
“Equally as important is Civica’s future roadmap for Authority Altitude, as we look to keep up to date with technology evolving at rapid speed,” he said.
Civica’s Authority enterprise software has already empowered more than 150 councils throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Through Authority’s multifaceted capabilities, from citizen interactions and employee administration to financial oversight, asset management, and rate regulation, local governments have harnessed operational efficiency. Backed by robust analytics and reporting functionalities, Civica empowers local governments with the insights necessary for prompt and impactful decision-making.
“As the city readies itself to embrace the cloud-first revolution, the synergy between Palmerston North City and Civica promises not only to elevate technological frameworks but also to nurture an environment of perpetual progress and innovation,” said Managing Director, Local Government at Civica, Brett Barningham.
“The impending transformation stands as a testament to Palmerston North City’s dedication to harnessing the future.”
