SIA - The Challenge

Responsive Application Development

All committees faced a number of challenges in relation to meeting their reporting obligations:

  • The requirement to maintain a central database of business relevant data including services provider details, enquiry details, training details and provider certification details.
  • The requirement to record service provider and public enquiry details and to manage enquiries throughout their full lifecycle from creation through to resolution.
  • The requirement to record committee staff time allocation to activities.
  • The requirement to collate organisation information for government reporting:
    • Enquiry reporting.
    • Training and certification reporting.
    • Communication and publication reporting.
    • Staff\resource activity reporting.
  • The provision of a web-based solution that is accessible inside and outside the office in an efficient manner.
  • The ability to generate required reports in an efficient manner.
