Attekus booking and events platform expands with new contracts

Attekus booking and events platform expands with new contracts
June 14, 2023

The expansion of booking and events software provider Attekus’ business has seen its popular Bookable product selected to meet the needs of both the City of Playford and the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council.

The fastest growing council in South Australia, the City of Playford in Adelaide’s northern suburbs supports its culturally diverse community of over 100,000 people with numerous bookable venues and facilities and runs various events, classes and programs.

To help manage bookings for its wide range of venues and busy events calendar, the council, after a competitive process, has selected Bookable to help manage bookings for its wide range of venues and busy events calendar.

The new solution will soon see the community and visitors able to search, make, pay and manage both online bookings and event registrations through the integrated, enterprise booking and event solution.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has also joined the growing trend set by councils in selecting Bookable by Attekus as its new online booking and events solution to improve the customer experience for its residents and visitors.

Situated south east of Melbourne, the Council provides a diverse range of venues and facilities and runs and supports numerous events for its community of over 160,000 people as well as visitors and tourists from other parts of Victoria and beyond.

With an initial focus on community halls, soon venues like The Briars Historic Homestead and Gardens as well as the Peninsula Community Theatre will be available online for the community to book, along with sporting fields and sports facilities and parks and reserves.

Driven by the need to improve the customer experience in searching for, making, paying for and managing bookings and events, the Council is moving away from manual online booking forms and non-integrated event ticketing solutions to an enterprise solution, centralising the management of bookings and event ticketing across Council into a single, enterprise solution.

Deep, pre-built integration with Council’s corporate TechnologyOne Finance system will drive internal efficiencies allowing council staff to focus on and support customers through-out the booking and event processes.

The City of Playford and the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council join a rapidly growing community of Attekus customer in local governments across Australia and New Zealand who are using Bookable to improve the customer experience for their communities, moving the entire booking process on-line.

Attekus Chief Executive, Peter Suchting explained “Councils often have fragmented systems for bookings and events, and rely on manual steps, static forms or even phone calls to take and process bookings.

“Bookable was developed in Australia for local governments to help modernise these processes into an enterprise system that moves the entire booking process online, making it really easy for the community to use.

“And it automates the back-office processing at councils, with integration to the finance systems as well.”

As the leading facility booking and event ticketing solution for local government, Attekus Booking is specifically designed for the complexity of council booking requirements, including supporting council pricing models, and providing full integration to the council’s erp or financial general ledger system.

Founded in 2017 the Attekus team understand the needs of local government venues and provide purpose-built software solutions and highly specialised consulting skills for clients.
