The Australian Bureau of Statistics, is not only responsible for collecting and compiling nationally significant statistics,
but also to aggregate them and provide other important insights. To address the need for creating geographically referenced
statistics, ABS needed a solution that would associate an address with its latitude and longitude coordinates as well as other
Australian Statistical Geography Standard (previously known as ASGC) codes. Utilising extensive experience in the area of address
management and incorporating core functionality from its matching and data standardisation engines, Intech provided a solution to
enable address data to be geographically coded in a high-volume, highly concurrent environment. This functionality, coupled with a
unique coding algorithm is then used to append a Mesh Block and other boundaries to each address, allowing for location-based
intelligence to be garnered.
CoINVEST is responsible for administering the Portable Long Service Leave Scheme for Victorian construction workers.
Intech helped CoINVEST automate parts of their business processes related with worker registration and updates through online
services. The requirements were centred around obtaining an information matching solution that was able to enhance the data which
links the organisations and their staff together. This is required to enforce regulation regarding long service leave as well as
fees collection from the construction industry in Victoria. The probabilistic matching algorithms implemented to enable this
process greatly improved CoINVEST's process efficiency metrics as well as improving customer service.
OSPRI works to help protect and enhance the reputation of New Zealand’s primary industries, supporting access to high value overseas
markets for dairy, beef and deer products. A major part of the work is the TBfree programme to eradicate bovine tuberculosis. The
TBfree system handles all aspects of complex and science-based disease management, including maintaining up-to-date contact details,
scheduling testing of every cattle and deer herd in NZ with test frequency based on a geospatial risk profile, and providing clear
and comprehensive information to guide decision-making. IQ Office was selected to manage problems with error prone addresses and to
identify the locations of farms, herds and people.
