Wingercaribee Shire Council's Digital Transformation with HIVO's Digital Asset Management Solution

Nestled in the lush Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia, the Wingercaribee Shire Council found itself at a crossroads. In an age where digital assets are as valuable as physical infrastructure, the Council's existing systems were not meeting the expectation and modern requirements of council staff. After receiving demonstrations and testing all available solutions in Australia, the council's quest for a solution culminated in the adoption of HIVO's Digital Asset Management (DAM) platform—a decision that would redefine it’s digital asset management systems and procedures.
