Software and services company Advanced Data Integration (ADI) has secured a contract with NSW's largest inland local government agency, Wagga Wagga City Council, to roll out its document management system DataWorks.
Developed by Queensland-based ADI, DataWorks is used by more than 100 councils across Australia and New Zealand, including 30 per cent of Australia's largest councils according to the company.
Slated to go live in October, the document management system will be used by the council to better serve its 60,000 residents. Council staff will be able to simultaneously access information and organise data through workflow, imaging and storage more efficiently.
Eventually the council wants to provide its residents information via the Web.
"If a customer, for example, wants to track a building application, it will be simply a matter of logging onto the council Web site and calling up the information," said Brian Pearson, director of Support Services at Wagga Wagga City Council.
Besides the software and its use in other councils across the country, Pearson cited ADI's "partnership" approach to the intended project as the reason for its selection.
