Museum of Australian DemocracyMoAD improves efficiency with the cloud-based software MYOB Advanced, implemented by Kilimanjaro Consulting
In their 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 their constantly developing environment. Manual work was becoming burdensome for the team, who 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. The perfect fit was MYOB Advanced Business, a cloud-based system that can be fully tailored to their specific needs. MYOB is not just for small businesses, and MYOB Advanced was able to cater to the MoAD’s complexity properly.
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
