Sunshine Coast Council ramps up cloud migration

Sunshine Coast Council (SCC) has contracted Pitney Bowes to provide a software-as-a-service-based asset management solution as part of the council’s cloud first migration.

The council will use the Pitney Bowes Confirm platform to collate real-time data on the operational status of its digital and physical assets and make informed decisions on the repair, maintenance and investment of critical assets.

Confirm will interface with the council’s financial, customer relationship management and geospatial systems to enable organisation-wide data management.

The council will also use the platform’s built-in map-based scheduling and cross mobile device data-sharing capabilities to boost the mobility of its workforce, improve field resource management and more efficiently schedule and dispatch field teams.

“The complexities of managing billions of dollars of assets, while undergoing substantial growth, can be challenging. We are responsible for forecasting the long-term strategic impact of every SCC investment,” said Tom Jamieson, Sunshine Coast Council Group Executive for the Built Infrastructure Group.

“The Pitney Bowes Confirm solution helps us accelerate our drive to digital. It also supports our mobility strategy, fits with our SaaS strategy and will deliver significant benefits to our council and community.”

He said the council is also involved in a number of other major system upgrades, including its CRM and human resources management systems, to support the region’s smart city ambitions and its fast-growing population. The region is currently home to 300,000 residents, and this is expected to grow to 500,000 by 2041.
