Meenangu Wajarri Aboriginal Corporation

Offering better services to members with effective practices, systems and processes in place

With the vision of “engaging, empowering and investing in Wajarri Yamatji Peoples’ future”, Meenangu Wajarri Aboriginal Corporation (MWAC) is an organisation which administers the financial benefits of the Wajarri Yamatji people under land use agreements in the Murchison area. The Corporation is also pivotal in progressing the broader interests of approximately 900 members and their children by being proactive in dealings with Government and private industry.

In order to ensure a fair, transparent governance system (which adheres to strict compliance requirements), a reduction in administration costs and efficiencies in processing times for funding applications, MWAC engaged illuminance Solutions to implement their Aboriginal Trust Management System (ATMS).

This system is based on a Microsoft platform and incorporates the communication functionalities of Dynamics 365, an ideal solution for an organisation which focuses on effective communication, collaboration, and marketing for the trust and its members.

The main intention of leveraging non-profit licensing and sponsorship provided by Microsoft is to cut down on administration costs and to re direct funds toward the original intent – which is the betterment of life for the members.

According to MWAC’s CEO, the most successful indigenous corporations worldwide are those with significant interests providing:

  • Opportunities for community employment and training
  • Opportunities for community owned businesses to work on larger scale projects rather than outsourcing to large non community organisations
  • An alternative revenue stream such as investments where profits are delivered back to the corporation and trust for the benefit of all members

MWAC’s goal is to grow as a corporation and offer better services to their members with effective practices, systems and processes in place. Illuminance is proud to be a trusted partner in this journey.


“Our collaboration with illuminance Solutions for the ATMS implementation has made us realise that technology combined with correct business processes in place can play an important role in the success of our organisation.

ATMS offers us both these factors and we are looking forward to using ATMS as the tool to drive our efficiency, improve governance and offer better services to our members into the future.”
