MuniSight was happy to support the AAMDC Spring Conference as a participant. The event was held in Edmonton, AB on the week of March 19th, 2018.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to say hello! It was great to see many of our customers at the event!

MuniSight welcomes Manitoban municipal governments!

MuniSight is excited to welcome several Manitoban municipalities to it’s community of municipal governments.

About Manitoba’s Municipal Governments

Manitoba currently has 37 urban municipalities, 98 rural municipalities, and 2 local government districts for a total of 137 municipal governments. Urban municipalities are identified as Cities, Towns, and Villages, while rural municipalities are identified quite simply as a Rural Municipality. This structure was mostly derived because of the Municipal Act of 1995. Prior to this structure, Manitoba operated with 197 municipal governments before an amalgamation took place, mostly in 1997, to consolidate smaller municipalities together. In 2015, Manitoba went through a similar exercise, where many municipal governments combined together once again.

Manitoba’s population is mostly centered in Cities (66%), followed by Rural Municipalities (24%), Towns (4.5%), and Villages (0.5%). Rural Municipalities occupy the most land area by far, with a cumulative share of 24% of the Province’s total land area, and have an average population of 3,050 inhabitants.

Once again, MuniSight would like to welcome those Manitoban municipalities who have joined our community, and we look forward to continuing our work in the Province.

Regards,

Quinten

With our release date rapidly approaching, we will be sharing videos and blogs that give further detail into what the exact changes look like. Be sure to stay tuned to our Newsletter for updates!

Our Purpose: Connecting and simplifying municipal information.

It has only been three months since our Company’s transition to MuniSight, but our team is already more excited than ever about the new potential that came along with the change.

MuniSight’s purpose is to connect and simplify municipal information. After consulting with customers, and our own team, this is the new purpose that we want MuniSight to embody.

We believe that when we connect and simplify your municipal information, we empower you to gain insights from your information, and allow you to make decisions that deliver more value to your rate-payers.

With a new purpose statement, comes a refreshed set of values. As a Company, we belive that it is important for us to share these values with our clients, so that you know what we stand for.

Respect – we maintain a high level of regard for the needs, wishes, and health of our clients, our community, and our team.

Integrity – we are guided by a clear sense of purpose that allows us to stand by our actions that have quality and authenticity.

Innovation – we strive to makes the lives of our clients simpler by being creative and agile.

At MuniSight, we have a purpose statement that defines why we exist, and values that guide our behaviours to enable us to deliver value to our clients on a daily basis.

We are excited about our refreshed focus, and we are looking forward to rolling out new, and improved, solutions (hint: shortly!) that will help you connect and simplify your municipal information!

Sincerely,

Quinten

Announcing MuniSight!

SHERWOOD PARK, AB, May 4, 2017 / – Accurate Assessment Group Ltd. (“AAG”) announces the formation of MuniSight Ltd. (“MuniSight”), and appoints Quinten Griffiths as President.

MuniSight develops software, and delivers services, to help government Institutions manage their jurisdictions. Its flagship GIS integration software has helped the company gain recognition as a leader in their field, especially in their home Province of Alberta. MuniSight has been operating as a division of AAG for the past 15 years.

The President of AAG, Greg Berger, founded MuniSight to help municipalities manage operations with the use of spatial information. Since the Company’s inception, MuniSight has grown to service over 50 government institutions including Municipal Districts and Counties, as well as Towns and Cities.

“We view this transition as a key piece of our continued journey to deliver positive outcomes to our client partners”, said Greg Berger. “The transition to MuniSight, and the addition of Quinten Griffiths, will bring significant resources and expertise to our organization which will help us deliver sustainable value to our client partners.”

Griffiths received his Chemical Engineering designation from Queen’s University in Kingston, an MBA designation from INSEAD in France, and is registered as a Professional Engineer in Alberta. Prior to MuniSight, Quinten founded and operated a lower mid-market private equity firm, and also worked with Royal Dutch Shell as an engineer where he acted as a technical lead for day-to-day refinery operations and supported the start-up of a major refining unit.

As an Albertan, I look forward to bringing our solution to various levels of governments in Alberta and North America, while continuing to build a strong technology company right here in Sherwood Park.”
