Enterprise content management (ECM) provider, Objective, continues to strengthen its customer base in Western Australia announcing a $2.8 million, three year contract with the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA).
The ECM software will be rolled out to 1500 users across 22 regional offices and research stations throughout the state.
The contract was awarded under the WA government's preferred supplier panel and the rollout is expected to address key business areas including policy and planning, bio security and research, industry and rural services, natural resource management, food and trade.
DAFWA director of information services, Tony Moran, said a solution was needed that could cater to the diversity and volume of information types in use.
Moran said it will support process and technology change required to deliver e-government functionality and meet legislative requirements within the WA State Records Act 2000.
"It will be easier to share information across our geographically and functionally dispersed environment, minimising the hours spent retrieving information from individual silos of information that exist across the business," he said.
The win follows similar deals in recent months with Objective inking a $3.6 million contract with the WA Department of Planning and Infrastructure.
It is also used by WA Police who claim the software's search capabilities is actually putting suspects behind bars.
WA Police has 6,920 employees managing 162 police stations.
