Switching to FinancialsLIVE adds resilience and ease of use
After managing its finances for 13 years with the Civica Financials on-premise system, Wychavon District Council switched to the cloud FinancialsLIVE solution following just six months of testing.
The move to FinancialsLIVE was a smooth transition from contract signature to migration. The switchover took place on a single day following testing by a small core project team in the finance department, together with IT colleagues and Civica.
The cloud solution also supports the council’s agile way of working. Most staff are only required to be in the office for 40% of the working week and can work from home even more easily with the new system, which now just needs a simple login.

Before, we needed a remote desktop server to access the on-premise system. Now, people can just open their laptops and log in from anywhere with a single sign-on.
