DTA to modernise data management with Records365

The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has bought the Records365 software from RecordPoint to modernise and streamline their services.

The upgrade is part of the Digital Records Transformation Initiative, led by the Department of Finance, to improve the productivity of the public sector through smart digital records management.

Minister for Finance Simon Birmingham said the pandemic had changed the way Australians interacted with government services and welcomed the steps taken by the DTA to update their platforms.

“By modernising the way in which government services data is managed and recorded, more efficient and timely services can be provided for Australians,” Minister Birmingham said.

“The parliament and the public should have confidence that data is kept and managed appropriately through procurement of this software which will provide greater transparency and accountability.” 

Minister for Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business Stuart Robert said, “This local company has worked to modernise its solution by adopting machine learning, full text extraction and natural language processing to automate the process of records management, from creation to disposal.

“This offers tremendous benefits to the way DTA keeps records, not only in terms of productivity but also to assist with greater transparency.”

The Digital Records Transformation Initiative was a project under the APS Modernisation Fund.

The Chief Operating Officer for RecordPoint, Anthony Woodward, noted the landscape for records management products had shifted greatly since the government signalled its intent to modernise the sector through the initiative.

“We have seen accelerating demand for intuitive, user-focused solutions. This opportunity allows our Melbourne-based AI engineering team to innovate alongside DTA, a leader in the federal government sector, and puts us at the forefront of the global records and content management industry.”
