Promapp wins WA local government contract

Western Australian local government Joondalup has selected cloud-based business process management software from Promapp to support its ongoing strategy for effective service delivery, business improvement and risk management.

The City of Joondalup, one of the largest local governments in Western Australia, has selected Promapp to replace a system which required manual resources.

The city also wanted to establish a central repository for all its processes with an automatic update regime to ensure processes were always current and, in addition, enhanced management of processes would provide greater ease in applying the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 in the Infrastructure Services Directorate.

Joondalup chief executive Garry Hunt said the city had been using software for a number of years to assist with documenting processes as part of its continuous improvement programme.  “While this software worked, it required manual resources and was time-intensive.”

“The City is recognised as a high performing organisation that continuously strives to improve the delivery of services to our community. As a result, we have a strong focus on internal process management and continuous improvement in line with the Australian Business Excellence Framework which the city follows as its leadership and management system.”

The selection of the Promapp solution followed a comprehensive market review and Hunt says it was based on several factors including its ease of use and its ability to engage with employees, and the availability on a variety of devices.

“Once Promapp is fully deployed later this year, we’ll also be able to link risks directly to actual activities in processes,” he said.

“Staff will be able to take greater ownership of risks and be better placed to monitor them via a notification dashboard and a live feed enabling the updating of risk and compliance records automatically. This will assist with improving effective risk management which remains central to our internal operations.”

RECOVERING FROM RANSOMWARE

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
