Land Information New Zealand has chosen listed Australian company Objective Corporation to provide an enterprise-wide electronic document management system.
LINZ acting manager knowledge information Gavin Eiloart says a pilot project will go live within a month. Rollout is expected by the end of August and the project is scheduled for completion late in the year.
More than 300 users in six locations across New Zealand will use Objective as an integrated document and records management system that will allow physical records and electronic records to be managed within a single application for the first time.
The system stores information within a common classification and, once fully operational, will significantly reduce the search and retrieval time for all information throughout LINZ.
“We see Objective as a cornerstone of our information architecture.” Eiloart says. “Its sophisticated functionality will allow us to seamlessly share information throughout LINZ.
“We selected Objective as it was intuitive, simple to use and could effectively handle large, complex volumes of information. Objective will provide a secure platform that acts as a single source of truth, enabling staff to find the right information quickly and easily online.”
He says LINZ is evaluating expanding its customer-focused services to include direct services, consistent with its policy of adapting digital technologies to meet customer needs.
Objective’s software will integrate with Microsoft office and email systems, and provide version control, workflow and central searching on documents.
