Cloud Administered Councils – Reality or Myth?

EDGE IT Systems are delighted to be celebrating 30 years of providing software solutions and IT support to councils, cemeteries, crematoria & SMEs.

For our 30th anniversary event we are hosting a full day of informative and topical webinars presented by six guest speakers. We will explore whether cloud administered councils are a reality or a myth that may happen in the future.


  • carbon neutral by 2030
  • going paperless case studies
  • digital mapping
  • were you prepared for the Pandemic? & the proposed Funeral Availability Reporting System (FARS)
  • workshop for improving resilience for hybrid workers
  • council relationship management (CRM) software
  • how to secure your data with a demo of how to recover from a ransomware attack

Attendees will be able to pose questions to the speakers, and leave & join the webinar throughout the day, enabling you to attend as much or as little as you’d like. There will be a quiz, and a free prize draw for all attendees.
