The 2017 theme for the annual Local Government Finance Professionals (LGFP) conference was “Partnering for Sustainability”. Ibis was a sponsor again in Cairns this year at the LGFP event where Jordan & Chris had the opportunity to meet many local government professionals from around Australia.
Some of the interesting themes at this year’s conference included:
– unleashing the power of collaboration
– cybersecurity & fraud risk
– working in partnerships
– financial energy management
– unlocking procurement collaboration
Ibis had a stand at the conference and took many questions about their new Rate Modelling service – a fixed price activity for councils that don’t have the resources or tools to handle complex revenue forecasting demands and have outgrown error prone spreadsheet-based tools. We also had some enquiries about our new cloud-based solutions from some councils who are finding it hard to use their current systems to deliver a fast service because of their IT constraints.
