LGAQ announces new digital partnership

Thursday, 8 March 2018

As local governments’ digital footprint continues to grow, the LGAQ is making a substantial investment to better support member councils – and it will significantly change the way the LGAQ provides digital services to councils. 

A new partnership with Jadu, leading global provider of web experience management software and digital services, will give councils access to a world-class content management system. 

Jadu powers many of the UK’s local authority websites, including Birmingham City Council – Europe's largest local authority – with their technology soon to power the majority of Queensland council websites and intranets. 

CEO Greg Hallam said the partnership represents the Association’s fifth, and most significant, technical upgrade. 

“The move to partner with Jadu will deliver stability, smart integrations and a whole lot of new capabilities and tools for councils,” Mr Hallam said. 

“It’s more than just a website, as the new platform will build connections for councils, empowering teams to tell great local stories and access a growing library of digital resources.  

“Councils will have access to new online tools and functionality, and can leverage our investments in social media and the big data opportunities being unlocked by LG Sherlock.” 

Jadu CEO and founder Suraj Kika said they were proud to partner with the LGAQ. 

“Our partnership with LGAQ means that Jadu technology will now power the majority of Queensland’s council websites and intranets” Mr Kika said.

“It will change the way the people of Queensland interact with their councils. We’re incredibly proud to be taking this journey with the LGAQ team.”
