Mincom today announced a multi-million deal with Queensland construction firm, QBuild, to provide software that will improve workforce planning and scheduling.
Under the agreement, Mincom will provide QBuild with an integrated solution, including Mincom Ellipse and Mincom Axis, to improve the planning and delivery of maintenance services and small to medium construction projects throughout the state.
QBuild is one of five commercialised business units that comprise the Queensland government's Department of Public Works.
The department is responsible for the policies and programs related to government buildings, capital works initiatives, procurement development and administrative services.
The Mincom solution will provide QBuild with one source of information and the backbone for interaction between customers, staff, suppliers and other government agencies by integrating a number of existing disparate systems and rationalising current business applications.
Minister for Public Works, Housing and Information Technology, Robert Schwarten, said the software will improve planning and scheduling, and enable the introduction of mobile technology solutions.
Schwarten said better information and management will mean better response times.
Mincom CEO, Richard Matthews, said the company has a solid footprint in the public sector. Clients include Tourism Queensland, VicRoads and Victoria Police.
"Across Australia, Mincom software is used by public sector organisations that manage over $85 billion of assets," Matthews said.
"It caters for the HR, payroll and rostering needs of over 30,000 public sector employees and underpins over $100 million of e-hub purchasing by government agencies."
Headquartered in Brisbane, Mincom has more than 1300 staff in 18 offices across the globe.
