ALGIM Award finalists

We're celebrating with our customers, Tasman District Council and Kaipara District Council, who are both finalists in the ALGIM 2020 Fast Track Project Award.

ALGIM is the industry body for local government information management staff. The Fast Track Award is for a project that was already on the 2020 programme of work but had to be brought forward to meet council business needs due to Covid-19 and the sudden realisation the project would soon be a necessity. 

Congratulations to both teams at Tasman District Council and Kaipara District Council. Entries are: 

  • Tasman District Council: 'Delivering ‘DORIS’ EDRMS and GIS platform under lockdown leveraging Microsoft 365'

  • Kaipara District Council: 'Microsoft Teams fast track rollout at Kaipara District Council supports ‘business as usual’ despite Covid-19 lock down' 

Both implementations were delivered by Information Leadership 365 lead, Kristy Archer, with dedicated support from the wider Information Leadership team. Kristy reflects "I'm thrilled for both Kaipara District Council and Tasman District Council project teams - amazing efforts to support their staff and communities through lock-down with innovative technology delivery while under pressure".

Winners will be announced at an online ceremony Friday 2nd October 2020.
