EDMS contract for WA Whole-of-Government initiative
IT Services business Alphawest has been selected as the preferred tenderer to provide Electronic Document and Records Management Systems (EDMS) for the provision of business systems software and support for finance and payroll processing for some 130 State Government agencies to be serviced by Shared Corporate Service Centres.
The win positions Alphawest in conjunction with Oracle in a project with an overall budget of $82 million over ten years. The Shared Corporate Service Centres will enable State Government agencies to pool resources in the areas of financial management, human resource management and purchasing.
Alphawest will supply Hummingbird’s Enterprise Suite for electronic document and records management in order to support an integrated approach for the management of all paper and electronic documents, records and evidence of business processes, enabling government offices to capture, secure, publish and manage the complete lifecycle of critical information in a consistent and effective manner, across all agencies.
“Alphawest is pleased to be part of this important reform of the public sector,” said Garry Henley, Chief Executive Officer of Alphawest. “Alphawest shares the WA Government’s vision for the cost effective integrated provisioning of Corporate shared services, and with this business imperative in mind, the proven Hummingbird EDMS was selected within the “Best of Breed” category.”
Simon Tate, WA Regional Manager for Hummingbird Australia, said “Hummingbird and Alphawest have as strategic partners invested heavily in the Western Australian market for many years, which has culminated in this strategic win within the whole of government initiative.”
Alphawest’s experience in government is broad and spans years of delivery incorporating product, services and outsourcing in specialist areas. Alphawest’s specific experience in the Information Management domain includes providing specialist services in Document and Records Management, Electronic Procurement, Web Content Management and workflow for a significant number of agencies in WA and throughout Australia.
Treasurer Eric Ripper said the Corporate Services business systems to be supplied will play a major role in shaping how the Shared Serviced Centres deliver services to their client agencies. “Once fully implemented, the Shared Corporate Services Reform will deliver savings to the West Australian taxpayer of at least $50 million every year. That is money that can be redirected towards core areas such as health, education and law and order,” he said.
