Catholic Diocese of AucklandThe Catholic Diocese of Auckland continues to deliver its mission work with the implementation of MYOB Advanced Business.
With an outdated system spanning multiple entities, the Catholic Diocese of Auckland implemented MYOB Advanced Business, a solution that allowed them to quickly access real-time data across their organisation in an easy-to-understand, consolidated view.
Who is the Catholic Diocese of Auckland?
The Catholic Diocese of Auckland (CDA) is known for its mission work across the Auckland region. They are a large and complex organisation, operating across six entities as well as 50 schools and 70 parishes. The organisation’s scope covers building refurbishment and repairs, collecting schooling attendance dues, and managing a retirement village. While they are not-for-profit, they have the structure and balance sheet to rival any large business and rely on complex revenue streams such as donations and government funding.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced Business?
The CDA was operating with a structure well over a decade old, and the finance team struggled to produce the 59 board packs required throughout the year. They needed to access multiple systems across the organisation for their information, all of which were stored on local servers and had different reporting formats. As a result, the team was wasting time on manual reporting work instead of focusing on growth and development. Operating across Auckland, it was important for the CDA to have their data under a single, consolidated view. MYOB Advanced could overcome these challenges as a modern, feature-rich system that can be customised to meet the organisation’s demands.
What changes followed the decision?
MYOB Advanced Business is a cloud-based platform that lets the CDA access their data anywhere at any time. This created the single source of truth they needed, eliminating the need for individual on-premise servers and allowing the organisation to view data in easy-to-understand dashboards.
The CDA can now access their data in real-time and convert it into insightful reports. This drastically speeds up the preparation of monthly board packs. The team no longer focuses on data collation or manipulation and can instead make informed decisions regarding the future of the organisation.
How are they now?
The Catholic Diocese of Auckland is now using more accurate and dynamic information to improve its operational ability. With MYOB Advanced Business, the organisation can better present data across all their estates and entities in a dashboard. The organisation is on track to meet its long-term sustainability goals with all its data in the cloud. Their consolidated system streamlines workflows and reduces the chances of errors from manual intervention. With these improvements to their efficiency, the CDA can focus on the organisation’s growth and continue to deliver its mission work to those who need it.
