Queensland Police Service (QPS) has ramped up its records management capabilities with the expanded roll out to 2000 users of ASX listed Objective’s (ASX:OCL) records management solution.
This roll out will see Objective used in all police locations throughout Queensland to support records management practices. QPS has used Objective since 2001 predominantly for its administrative and records management needs.
The contract for the additional licenses was awarded under the Queensland Whole of Government procurement arrangement. QPS declined to comment on the motivation for the expanded roll out, citing the potential to compromise its contractual relationship with Objective, but in an ASX statement Objective CEO Tony Walls said QPS is a long-term valued customer.
“The strength and vision behind our software has grown parallel to our relationship with QPS and this gives us greater capability to support their business needs and help them supply even higher levels of service excellence to the people of Queensland,” he said.
In May Greater Dandenong City Council moved to break down its information silos and foster a more collaborative work environment with the roll out of a new electronic content management (ECM) system from Objective.
The ECM was expected to underpin improved information management and service delivery to the local community and help the Council maintain compliance with standards such as the Freedom of Information Act and the Victorian Electronic Records Standard (VERS), which deals with the disposal of records.
