Make smart business decisions for your council and community.

Make smart business decisions for your council and community.

Planning, monitoring, and reporting play a key role in the successful delivery of services for any organisation. Alongside that we find internal and external communication.

Built specifically for how councils do business and based on a simple design, Datascape Financials is a fully integrated suite of financial modules that will enable councils to focus on customer service ahead of financial transaction management. We use a real-time financial transaction model that means all financial data is online available for reporting and complex reconciliation and batch processing can be left in the past.

Datascape helps councils speak with its communities and external stakeholders to inform them of the cost to deliver the activities a council is either required to deliver by statute, or has agreed with its community is an essential service it must deliver. A financial framework with activity based costing and statutory financial reporting is provided, helping the community better understand the council's financial numbers behind the cost of doing things for the community.

Datascape financials provides a financial solution built around the premise that councils are primarily responsible for the efficient spend of community rates and running of community services, ensuring full transparency to the community.
