The New Zealand Land Transport Safety Authority is looking for improvements in work practices and workflow out of a new document management system from Australian provider Objective.
The LTSA says of the tenders submitted, Objective’s best met its requirements.
Existing reference sites in New Zealand, such as Archives New Zealand, also helped sway the decision Objective’s way. LTSA information services manager Andrew Martin says local document management provider SilentOne made it to the final stages of selection.
The rollout will begin in August. It will be done by Objective and LTSA staff.
An electronic document management system will be a technological and cultural change, as the present system is paper-based.
As well as improving the management of business information, “we expect improvements throughout the organisation regarding the ability to share and improve work practice and workflow. We see benefits beyond the control of documents.”
Martin wouldn’t reveal the value of the deal, the second Objective has scored in New Zealand in recent months.
In November it won a $1.5 million, five-year contract to supply a system to the Ministry of Social Development.
