13 Jul 2010
BlueArc is pleased to have been selected by the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) as one of the digital technology partners of choice for Victorian local councils.
Following a highly competitive tender process, BlueArc was selected based not only on the flexibility of the highly regarded IgnitionSuite CMS, but also on BlueArc’s proven track record delivering successful online solutions for councils across NSW and Victoria.
"We have a thorough understanding of the needs of local councils. This, coupled with BlueArc's comprehensive digital offering played a key role in our selection by MAV. MAV recognised our expertise in providing online tools that empower councils to meet the needs of their communities and make it easier for council staff to do their jobs,” said Chad Craven, Director of Interactive Business, BlueArc.
"IgnitionSuite Web CMS represents excellent value for money. It gives councils the ability to deliver the highest standard of service to citizens while at the same time comply with legislation and reduce costs,” said Craven.
IgnitionSuite provides councils with the ability to create and manage online content across websites, intranets and extranets, quickly and easily, without the need for design or technical skill.
Feature rich, standards compliant and multi-site capable, IgnitionSuite is designed to meet even the most complex content management requirements. It provides a comprehensive Government 2.0 tool box for richer interaction with the community and offers seamless integration with existing council business systems.
Susanna Cornelius, Public Relations and Online Communications Officer for Whitehorse City Council comments, “Council staff have responded positively to IgnitionSuite Web Content Management System, finding it easy to use, flexible and more intuitive than the previous system.”
“I have been very impressed by BlueArc. The product and services were reasonably priced, the staff had strong presentation and project management skills and were approachable and responsive. The new site has been well received by the community and by internal stakeholders. I’m looking forward to working with BlueArc on other projects,” said Cornelius.
BlueArc looks forward to working with local councils to deliver improved service delivery, community interaction and compliance.
