Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua City Coun­cil’s web­site for sports­ground up­dates has won an in­for­ma­tion man­age­ment award.

The web­site, www.up­dates.co.nz, won the Ex­cel­lence in In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment Award and also came third in the Ex­cel­lence in In­no­va­tion cat­e­gory at the 31st an­nual As­so­ci­a­tion of Lo­cal Govern­ment In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment ( ALGIM) Con­fer­ence in Taupo. Web­site man­ager Dale Har­tle says Porirua’s sports teams, par­ents and coaches, and coun­cil staff, are all ben­e­fit­ing from the web­site.

‘‘The Up­dates web­site en­ables the pub­lic to re­ceive up-to-date in­for­ma­tion about whether a sports­ground is open or closed for train­ing or week­end games, wher­ever they may be, on what­ever de­vice they choose.’’

She says stream­lin­ing a pre­vi­ously time-con­sum­ing process into a quick and easy one-click up­date and no­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem has made all the dif­fer­ence for ad­min­is­tra­tors and users. Sub­scribers can re­ceive up­dates by RSS or email, or text-in to re­ceive a re­sponse with the lat­est sta­tus in­for­ma­tion.

Ad­min­is­tra­tors use the one-click up­date func­tion and man­agers re­ceive au­to­mated monthly re­ports. The project won this award against com­pe­ti­tion that in­cluded map­ping for the Rugby World Cup and Con­tact Cen­tres fol­low­ing the Christchurch earthquake.

The Ex­cel­lence in In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment Award was spon­sored by In­for­ma­tion Lead­er­ship Con­sult­ing and prizes in­cluded a three-day train­ing pro­gramme and a voucher for ex­penses in at­tend­ing the next ALGIM event.
