ELO Australia launches TRIM conversion tool

ELO Australia has announced the successful launch of its new TRIM migration tool. This development – lead by Australian resources - will now give an opportunity for organisations to migrate from their legacy EDRMS to ELO’s VERS compliant Records Management platform.

“Our newly developed conversion tool finally breaks down a significant barrier for those organisations looking to switch to another EDRMS” said Mr. Rainer Krause, Managing director of ELO Australia. “For example, one of our more recent clients approached me looking to transition from their legacy EDRMS to ELO. The customer - being a healthcare provider - simply couldn’t afford any unnecessary down time. ELO stepped up to the challenge and successfully developed and tested the conversion tool in response.”

Lengthy down times and institutional inertia to change have often been significant barriers to overcome for EDRMS developers. Organisations that have in the past adopted an EDRMS system have often been locked into tightly controlled software eco-systems, often with specialised hardware. In contrast ELO’s approach has been to stay platform agnostic which has allowed the EDRMS developers to access a wider variety of organisations not normally inclined to transition from paper to digital.

Mr. Ramanathan Veeraraghavan, Head of Development at ELO Australia said “Our design philosophy has always been to create real solutions for our clients and not to impose cumbersome processes onto them. We don’t believe in creating proprietary file formats that lock people into our way of doing things. I believe that ELO stands out on its own merits – no gimmicks or tricks. And if our clients require improvements of open architecture, we are there for them. We always strive to be better.” 

Mr. Krause closed, “With all things being equal, what this conversion tool provides is an avenue for any organisation looking to move away from their current system to ELO. We’re giving people a real choice and I’m very proud of that – and my team of course.”

ELO Australia launches “Council Edition”

ELO Australia has today announced the launch of its much anticipated “ELO Council Edition”. Specifically developed for small and medium sized councils the dedicated ELO Edition has been designed to tackle common scenarios Local Government administrations face. The software has also been embedded with the “Keyword for Council” for seamless transition.

“Together with our customers and partners, I believe that ELO has created a fast and easy to deploy system that every council can afford” said Mr. Rainer Krause, Managing Director of ELO Australia. “With ELO Council Edition, our customers will not only received a sophisticated EDRMS, but will also gain a fast return on investment due to our ”best practice” implementation approach”.

ELO Council Edition has been developed around a modular concept, it allowing customers to pick and choose what is suitable for them based on their unique circumstances.

“Modular design is something that we wanted to build on from the start” said Mr. Venkat Kedharanathan, ELO Senior Government Consultant. “Our experiences with a number of Councils presented us with variables such as compliance, number of users, facilities, processes and workflows to name a few. ELO Council Edition had to handle everything that was thrown at it, I’m proud to say that it does”.

ELO Council Edition starts with the VERS compliant ELO’s EDRMS as a base and allows for the addition of modules such as ‘Correspondence Management’, ‘Facility and Event’s Management” and “Council Meetings & Agendas’, dependent on individual Council’s needs and requirements.

Mr. Rainer Krause closed by saying “We’re confident that ELO Council Edition is a fantastic addition to the ELO software suite. ELO Council Edition is unique because it can grow with the needs of any Council that adopts it and will provide a platform for Councils to better deliver local services to their constituents.”


Monash Health will upgrade to ELO – replacing HP TRIM

Monash Health, one of the largest healthcare providers in Australia has chosen ELO Digital Office to replace its HP TRIM Records Management software. Monash Health employs more than 14,000 staff caring for around 1.344 million Victorians, its three emergency departments treat on average more than 180,000 patients.

Monash Health reviewed its situation to either change their current HP TRIM system to the newer version or go to market and evaluate alternative systems that will help Monash Health for many years to come.

The open tender process invited various respondents with a multitude of proposals. Following a strict selection process, Monash Health selected the Toshiba / ELO solution. The proposal included not only the “pure replacement” of the HP TRIM system but also a review of current processes, areas for process enhancements and a solution that goes beyond Records Management.

ELO’s open architecture allows Monash Health to administer the system self-sufficiently, develop and implement workflows without the need of expensive development as well as the capability to integrate with current and future 3rd party software packages.

The Toshiba / ELO solution was chosen because of its capabilities beyond the incumbent system. “Covering all aspects of VERS compliant Records Management was the foundation of our proposal. But when we reviewed the operating environment, the ever increasing needs in healthcare and financial pressure the industry has, it was clear that ELO was the perfect fit” comments Rainer Krause, Managing Director ELO Australia. “ELO is used by various entities that need a Records Management solution with the user in mind, a solution that enhances business processes, provides high ROI while maintaining the required compliance.”

Having been selected by WA Department of Commerce to replace their Objective system, Monash Health is the second very reputable entity to go with ELO rather than implementing a newer version from their current suppliers.

The agreement with Monash Health includes the delivery of software, implementation as well as required migration services.

Using ELOenterprise with its VERS compliant Records Management module will deliver an outcome on time and on budget. The project has commenced in January 2016
