It can be used to integrate with external systems for real-time upload of jobs, automatically assign jobs to resources based on configurable workflow or rules and gain insight into real-time job progress to make more informed decisions.

Judges’ Citation: “The Consensus judges were impressed with ConnectiX’s well researched process to identify the gap in the market before developing their solution.

ConnectiX’s plan to develop forms and workflow into their integration solution not only provides visibility of asset management within a complex supply chain market but potential to help companies to manage compliance in a regulatory environment. Their extension into automated IoT would further extend their market reach”.

Jesse Ford CEO of EncompaaS (left) with Julian Day CEO & Founder of Consensus

EncompaaS    www.emcompaas.cloud
from EncompaaS Pty Ltd

EncompasS plans to solve enterprise compliance issues for Boards and CEO’s. It was designed to deliver compliance across on premise and cloud systems, as well as providing a path to help organisations retire content based on policy and automating this at scale.

Traditional approaches with Enterprise Content Management require integration to line of business systems and for people to save their content in to the system. Coupled with the challenge of human effort to go through old data sources, or apply any retention rules to current active content sources with the increasing rate of data created each year, this has become unachievable.

EncompaaS addresses these issues in a defensible, transparent and auditable process, totally governed by the customer through the Information Management Centre.

Judges’ Citation: “The judging panel was impressed with the overall business case behind the EncompasS v2.0 solution. We felt that the solution, ensuring regulatory compliance, was innovative and demonstrated significant market potential”.
