Civica scores second deal with Lake Macquarie Council


Lake Macquarie City Council in New South Wales is deploying Civica’s Land Information System, Authority 7.1, in a second deal with the software applications, digital solutions and managed services vendor.

Lake Macquarie is investing a further $1.2 million in the Civica solution after previously investing $6.3 million in Civica’s Authority 7.1.

Civica says that deployment of its Land Information System will allow Macqauarie Council to transform the way they manage property data and the rating process whilst delivering online property-based services to residents – eliminating the need for citizens to visit the council office.

Morven Cameron, chief executive at Lake Macquarie City Council, said it was Civica’s solution, combined with their openness to collaborate, that led the Council to invest in the next phase.

“It is important for Council to have a total business solution that is responsive to changing needs, is mobile accessible and improves the way we do business and interact with our customers," Cameron said.

“I am pleased that our team at Council have been able to collaborate with Civica to deliver the first phase of our transformation, implementing finance, asset management, payroll and customer request management in Authority 7.1.

"We look forward to continuing to work with the team at Civica to deliver a broader Land Information System that integrates property, rating, applications, certificates and other property related modules.”

Ben Cowling, managing director for State and Local Government Solutions at Civica International, said: “Authority 7.1 is purpose-built to suit the requirements of forward-thinking organisations like Lake Macquarie City Council.

“The Council has a clear vision and a strategy to realise their transformation agenda.  We are proud of our partnership with Lake Macquarie City Council and the phase one implementation was a team effort. We will no doubt have similar success with the Land Information System.”
