The Australian Capital Territory's Planning and Land Authority has started implementing document management software in an effort to streamline the approval process for new developments.

The authority -- responsible among other things for management of development activity, infrastructure and land use planning and regulation of the building industry -- is implementing Adobe's LiveCycle solution.

Adobe's Asia-Pacific marketing manager Mark Phibbs told ZDNet Australia the authority was using the vendor's technology to streamline the process of administering development applications in particular.

"As you know this process is very document-heavy," said Phibbs in a telephone interview yesterday, pointing out it could take months to get a development application approved.

The authority was trying to shorten this process though implementing LiveCycle, Phibbs said.

Adobe is partnering with Australian business process management specialist Avoka Technologies to service the authority, with implementation commencing several months ago.

Adobe describes LiveCycle as a solution that "combines robust process management with electronic forms, document security, and document generation".

Other organisations in Australia using LiveCycle include wealth management giant AMP and the federal Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources, Phibbs said.
