Queensland councils get digital boost

The Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) has formed a digital partnership with Jadu, a provider of web experience management software and digital services.

In a statement, the LGAQ said it is making a substantial investment to better support member councils, with Jadu’s technology soon to power the majority of Queensland council websites and intranets.

Jadu powers many of the UK’s local authority websites, including Birmingham City Council, Europe’s largest local authority.

LGAQ 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,” 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 the company is proud to partner with the LGAQ.

“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,” Kika said.
