12.03.2014

Objective Corporation (ASX:OCL) today announced that Objective Committees and Objective ECM for Small Agencies have been added to the Department of Finance Data Centre as a Service Multi Use List (DCaaS MUL).

Objective was first appointed as an approved supplier to the Australian Federal Government under this agreement in November 2012, following an extensive evaluation process in which Objective was selected as one of 35 leading providers to supply cloud and SaaS products. Objective Connect and Objective Online were initially part of this agreement.

Tony Walls, CEO of Objective Corporation said, “We are pleased to have our agreement to supply the Federal Government expanded to include Objective Committees and Objective ECM for Small Agencies, with the Department of Finance on their Data Centre as a Service Multi Use List. With the addition of these products to the DCaaS MUL, federal government organisations can now easily purchase solutions which have been engineered in Australia to solve their business challenges while increasing efficiency and productivity.”

Objective Committees offers a single interface for managing all aspects of the committee lifecycle, with the ability to track all actions, manage agendas and record meeting minutes. Objective Committees has the flexibility to meet an organisation’s unique requirements while reducing costs, ensuring legislative compliance and facilitating better decision-making throughout the committee management process.

Objective ECM for Small Agencies is a revolutionary “instant-on” Information Management solution for small Australian state and federal public sector organisations. Preconfigured and delivered from the cloud, Objective ECM for Small Agencies brings the benefits of best practice information governance to agencies that were previously too small to afford. It typically saves small agencies up to six months of planning, design and deployment time.

According to John Sheridan, Australian Government Chief Technology Officer, “Agencies have reacted positively to the diverse catalogue of services available through DCaaS. It provides them with a broad range of solutions to meet new business challenges.”
