In its constantly developing market, the Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) recognised the space it had for growth. By partnering with Kilimanjaro Consulting and implementing MYOB Advanced Business, MoAD improved efficiency by reducing manual data manipulation and leveraging the power of the cloud.

Who is the Museum of Australian Democracy?

The Museum of Australian Democracy is a living museum of social and political history in Australia. Located in a nationally listed heritage building in Parkes, Canberra, the Old Parliament House building is the premier ‘object’ in the collection. MoAD helps people to understand Australia’s social and political history by interpreting the past and present and exploring the future. The Museum emphasises the importance of democracy to Australians and is a major tourist attraction and educational site, with over 200,000 visitors each year.

What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced Business?

MoAD required an intuitive platform that could grow in its constantly developing environment. Manual work was becoming burdensome for the team, which needed greater access to information and better reporting tools. Kilimanjaro Consulting, MYOB’s number 1 partner, was the implementer of choice for the project. We recognised that MoAD would need a software system to solve immediate problems and provide a platform for growth. MYOB Advanced is the perfect fit for many government and public sector organisations. It is a cloud-based system that can be fully tailored to their specific needs. MYOB is not just for small businesses, and Kilimanjaro Consulting was able to cater MYOB Advanced to meet the MoAD’s complexity properly.

MoAD’s Trusted Implementation partner

Kilimanjaro Consulting is ANZ’s largest, most experienced, and most skilled team. When MoAD decided to implement MYOB Advanced, they chose Kilimanjaro Consulting as their partner of choice. We worked to understand MoAD’s workflows and customise the software to meet their specific needs.   We follow a structured implementation methodology and combined with the skills, knowledge and support of our team, we are able to guide you through the implementation process. At Kilimanjaro Consulting, we pride ourselves on being technology Sherpas, focused on building long-term relationships with clients and maintaining that partnership as their business grows. We take pride in MoAD’s success and look forward to our continued partnership. 

What changes followed the decision?

Following the implementation of MYOB Advanced Business, MoAD improved its efficiency, accessibility, and flexibility. Our structured methodology ensured that their new system met all of MoAD’s needs. The automation of manual data entry has cut down the paperwork in the finance department by 75%. Additional customisations for their system give MoAD the flexibility to grow.

How are they now?

After implementing MYOB Advanced, MoAD has empowered its team with faster access to their own data. The centralised cloud-based platform provides detailed, up-to-date budgeting information that can be accessed anytime, anywhere. The accessibility and easy customisation of MYOB Advanced allows MoAD to focus on reporting on the data and information important to them.

“Kilimanjaro were incredibly responsive to our needs and requests, adjusting things or giving training where we needed it, we then passed on that training to others throughout MoAD. They really made the effort to understand our business and worked with us to make changes so the system would flow for us.”
– Nick Hetherington – MoAD’s Acting CFO 

How do I achieve a successful MYOB Advanced implementation?

A successful MYOB Advanced Implementation depends on 3 critical risk:

  1. Software Risk
  2. Implementer risk
  3. Self-Inflicted Risk

You can reduce your risk by selecting the right implementation partner. Although there are many different partners to choose from, you need the one that will work with you every step of the way. Managing risk is an important part of an implementation; selecting a low-risk partner is critical to a lifetime of success with your Business Management system.
