The New Plymouth District Council (NPDC) has implemented TechnologyOne\u2019s enterprise content management system as part of its digital and mobility strategy.\nThe implementation included migrating all 1.6 million records from its previous document management system to TechnologyOne ECM, and provides the Council with one place to store and search for information.\n\u201cECM will enable the council to automate processes and embrace smart mobile devices more readily,\u201d said Kevin Glynn, NPDC ICT manager.\n Customers are demanding more services be delivered online, and increasingly we are seeing more mobile users working mainly from small form factor mobile devices. Kevin Glynn, NPDC\n\u201cCustomers are demanding more services be delivered online, and increasingly we are seeing more mobile users working mainly from small form factor mobile devices. We really needed to implement a system that would allow us to readily embrace these new technologies.\n\u201cWe were already using several TechnologyOne products and looking at a few more modules to move towards TechnologyOne\u2019s full OneCouncil solution. The great advantage of having all products from a single enterprise provider is seamless integration, and having a single point of accountability and ownership rather than us having to manage multiple vendors,\u201d Glynn said in a statement.\nTechnologyOne ECM extends the council\u2019s enterprise platform, removing unnecessary constraint and cost through integration, and vastly improving its enterprise user experience. Being device independent, ECM is able to capture information from any authoring tool including MS Office, Lotus Notes or Google Docs.\nNPDC implemented TechnologyOne ECM using the software company\u2019s Ci Anywhere platform.\n\u201cBecause Ci Anywhere is web-based we no longer have any client software to install, which is a great improvement on the previous system,\u201d said NPDC project manager Boon Chua\n\u201cIt also gives us the opportunity to review the subject index, which users had huge issues within the old system\u2019s file classification. Now that ECM is in place, we expect to drive full adoption of ECM by the business,\u201d said Chua.\n The council has bought into a system which adapts and evolves, positioning them well to harness the full value of smart mobile devices and other emerging technologies. Adrian Di Marco, TechnologyOne\nTechnologyOne executive chairman Adrian Di Marco said the company\u2019s next generation software will enable NPDC to future proof its business and prepare for a cloud-first, mobile-first world.\n\u201cWe\u2019re pleased to be working with a council as forward-thinking as New Plymouth District Council. As well as benefiting from the power of a single, integrated enterprise solution, the council has bought into a system which adapts and evolves, positioning them well to harness the full value of smart mobile devices and other emerging technologies,\u201d said Di Marco.\nSend news tips and comments to email@example.com\nFollow Divina Paredes on Twitter: @divinap\nFollow CIO New Zealand on Twitter:@cio_nz\nSign up for CIO newsletters for regular updates on CIO news, views and events.\nJoin us on Facebook.
