Old Parliament House is home to the Museum of Australian Democracy. The Old Parliament House building is the prime ‘object’ in the collection. It is a living museum of both social and political history. The Museum emphasises the importance of democracy to Australians.  It is a major tourist attraction and educational site, with over 200,000 visitors each year.

As the MoAD is constantly evolving, the organisation required software which could grow with the developing environment while maintaining an intuitive and user-friendly system. Manual work was becoming burdensome. Staff required simpler and greater access to information and it was time to implement better reporting tools.

Kilimanjaro recognized that MoAD would need a software system that would solve the immediate problems but also provide a platform for growth. The perfect fit was MYOB Advanced, a cloud-based system, which can be fully tailored to fit the specific needs.  Following the implementation, MoAD was able to improve their efficiency, accessibility, flexibility and automate manual data entry. This has cut down their paperwork in the finance department by 75%. Overall, MYOB Advanced has provided specific functionality that will enable growth with ease.

“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 implementation?

A successful implementation depends on managing 3 critical risks:

  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.
