ategory – EzeScan Most Outstanding Group

Nominations shortlisted were:

  • Munitions Branch, Department of Defence
  • Reserve Bank of Australia
  • Wellington City Council
Winner:    Wellington City Council

About the WCC:

Wellington City Council embarked upon an ambitious programme to implement an Enterprise level Content Management Solution (OpenText Content Server) to replace five existing systems and provide a single repository for all content including for the first time making archival material available and accessible to users across the Council in order to support business processes.  All from a single point.

TROVE, or “The Repository of Virtually Everything”, presents a truly integrated approach to the management of electronic and physical documents, records and archives. Where previously staff had viewed the Records and Archives team as the place “you sent stuff when it’s done”, the team has engaged with the business and through hard work, enthusiasm and sheer force of will, have changed that perception (still an ongoing process) so that people across Council now see records and archival artefacts as having relevance and value to existing business processes.
