At present, Queensland Police has a number of different methods for managing records; including mainframe correspondence indices, legacy systems, multitudes of databases and manual processes. Records include physical and electronic records, paper, photography, audio-visual, police notebooks, databases, emails, faxes, word-processing documents and spreadsheets.
"Objective has a very high match to Queenlsand Police Service's total requirements. It offers an extremely sophisticated management package, which Queensland Police anticipates will meet their requirements, especially with its flexibility," Objective Corporation's CEO, Asia Pacific, Tony Walls, said in a statement.
Queensland Police has been reviewing its practices since 1994 and says this is the last piece in the overall standardisation of its records management practices.
A pilot is being carried out in one region, after which Objective hopes the solution will be rolled out to more than 12,000 police and public service staff within the Queensland Police.
"Queensland Police is a major win for Objective in Queensland," Walls said.
"We officially opened our Brisbane office in April 2001 and are already working with the Queensland Department of Justice and focusing efforts on servicing Queensland government use a regional records management system, Objective's software will allow police to track crime more accurately statewide.
