1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

This new way of managing data became obvious when we realized that over one million hours were being wasted by using different databases in different formats. The idea of creating a database that could make a $50 million contribution to the Queensland economy (and expanding to other states) was too good to resist.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…
…bring all of the community information together into one space, where it can be accessed by the public, community organisations, councils and thegovernment.

It does this by…

…creating an online database that provides the right information, to the right people at the right time.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

…community information can now be easily found by community organisations, the public and Government, when they need it by using Shared Community Information.

Prior to this, there was no centralised, organised collection of this vital information resulting in duplication and errors.

Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…

…increased efficiency, better connections between organisations, easier access to information and services.

4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

…the development of individual, isolated databases that were out-of-date and needed significant investment and still didn’t achieve their goal.

Its predecessors/competitors include…

…council and government databases.

5. TARGET MARKET

It is made for…

…public, councils, government, community organisations and health services.

It is available for sale through…

…affordable annual membership online.

Our marketing strategy is to…

…work through partnerships with anyone who needs access to quality community information
