We were very pleased to exhibit at NGA18 in Canberra in the chilly month of June this year. With almost 1000 delegates from around the country, it was a great opportunity present secCloud and our intergration capabilities with Duktag, our co-exhibitor.
Duktag is Facilities Management Software. It is very popular with State and National Sports Organisations, but also ideally suited to Council Facilities. When a council integrates Duktag and secCloud, we can provide a single solution that combines booking and online payment plus remote access and lighting control for sports courts, meeting rooms, amenities blocks and anything else that needs bookings and access control.
Anthony Bennett from Duktag and Ray Murphy enjoyed meeting many Mayors and Councillors from different Local Councils from Tasmania to our local Sydney regions. Our integrated software is already being used at many Tennis Courts around Sydney. To offer this system to Local Councils, their customers can book venues through the council website, get access codes for specific hire periods, and have lights turn on for this time. Payments can also be made and a seamless process is achieved. It’s a modern solution for Local Councils and saves them time from having to travel across their region to open venues or have to issue keys.
We are looking forward to working with more councils on the installation of this great software, already being used across the Hills Shire Council in Sydney.
In reviewing the NGA18 conference, Mayor David O’Loughlin, ALGA President, noted “we were honoured to hear from the Prime Minister, the Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, at the conference dinner on Tuesday night, where he flagged interest in exploring a regional city deals model. Opposition Leader, the Hon Bill Shorten MP spoke earlier in the day, delivering a passionate speech centered on developing a deeper, direct partnership with local government.
