The Southern Councils Group (SCG) is a voluntary association of seven Local councils (Bega Valley, Eurobodalla, Kiama, Shellharbour, Shoalhaven, Wingecarribee, and Wollongong). The SCG is charged with fostering collaboration between the councils. The Southern Councils Group has deployed Internetrix Nucleus to help members of various committees across the councils to share information, collaborate on projects, and track communications more efficiently.
Nucleus allows committee members to contribute valuable resources and ideas to projects at any time, removing the significant barriers of such a geographically spread member base. Its built in feedback engine allows committee members to track all communications flowing through the system, so that all members are informed of the latest updates in their respective fields.
The varying roles within council that will be utilising Nucleus are as diverse as the General Managers, Planning Directors, Economic Development Managers, Waste Services Managers and Coast Care Officers. Each committee can share their resources and information to ensure that different councils are not duplicating effort on the same problems.
Leslie Scarlett, the Executive Officer at the SCG described Nucleus as "offering significant efficiency gains as committee members can access any information they need instantly through one central repository. Nucleus provides a fantastic tool to help us leverage the knowledge and experience of our constituent councils."
