Datacom worked collaboratively with a group of six regional councils across New Zealand to develop a custom-built software solution aimed at providing a central point of control for a previously disconnected set of information needs.
IRIS manages core Regional Council functions including Regulatory Areas of:
• Biosecurity and enforcement
• Land Management
• Selected Land Use Sites
IRIS was developed in a multi-year project, during which time Datacom engaged with six Regional Councils, involving more than 120 council stakeholders and participants.
The system includes workflow that assists councils in following business processes to meet deadlines, reduce exposure to financial penalties, and provide better service to customers. IRIS also integrates with other key systems including Sphere Online Services, Mobile Capture, GIS, document management, time recording and financials.
IRIS has an extensive ongoing programme of work to further extend and enhance its functionality and system integrations.
Datacom continues to work as RSHL’s Development Partner, helping with Product Strategy, delivering these IRIS Enhancements/extensions, and providing support to RSHL and the IRIS Regional Councils.
