10 Keeping Up With CAMMS!
So far 2014 has been a very busy year for all of us here at CAMMS and for our clients too, so it's good to take a step back and acknowledge what we've accomplished to date. CAMMS has participated in some of the biggest Local Government and industry events in Australia and we were able to witness a number of awards being given to our clients. Our Hazard Management module was released, which we are pleased to say has been well received by our customers with many taking the opportunity to purchase straight away, and we've also run some well attended Performance Management workshops. I think it's safe to say that we're well on the way to helping you make 2014 the year of Intelligent Performance!
 
A massive congratulations goes out to our clients who were winners and nominees of some very prestigious awards. We're proud to be a part of your journey to success!

County of
Wetaskiwin No.10

The purchase of CAMMS solutions will allow Wetaskiwin to improve their ongoing talent management and continue to be seen as innovators.
 
Brighton and Hove City Council
First purchasing CAMMS interplan® and Integrated Risk Manager solutions back in 2009, Brighton and Hove City Council, with its population of 250,000 people, have renewed their licenses for an additional 3 years and grown their user base to 600 staff across the City.
 
St Vincent de Paul
St Vincent de Paul selected CAMMS Personnel Evaluation System (PES) because they were confident PES could help them achieve their objectives to:
Be an employer of choice by establishing a high performing culture with continual improvement
   
Do away with time consuming, resource heavy and costly manual service review
   
Reward and recognise excellent performance
   
Retain and develop talent
   
Make performance management a key part of their business strategy by aligning individual's performance against their corporate objectives
   
Make performance evaluations easy for all their employees.
   
 
 
Gunnedah Shire Council
"Gunnedah opted to invest in CAMMS Integrated Risk Manager Solution, in place of a free competitive solution, because they saw that the benefits of utilising a comprehensive solution with risk and strategy aligned and fully integrated far outweighed the costs of operating a standalone application."
Reports Vicki Wright, Business Development Manager at CAMMS.
 
 
Shire of Moora
The Shire of Moora selected CAMMS interplan® because they were looking for a solution to integrate their strategic community plan, corporate plan, workforce plan and long term financial plan in one easily accessible location.
Other benefits they have realised using interplan® include:
An organisation-wide, best practice approach to implementing, monitoring, coordinating and reporting on business plans and projects
   
Significant resource efficiency savings
   
Minimised risk through the coordination of planning and performance information
   
Improved reporting mechanisms
   
Make performance evaluations intuitive, fast, and easy for all their employees.
   
 
 
District Council of Grant
"The District Council of Grant is looking forward to the utilisation of PES during the coming years to facilitate a streamlined performance development review system throughout Council. Our previous manual system although sound, has been lacking in the reporting and tracking ability which PES will provide. Council will now be able to undertake an analysis across the business to determine any areas for improvement as well as identifying areas for provision of training."
Marianne Tucker, Organisational Development Manager, District Council of Grant.
 
 
City of Leduc
The City of Leduc is the southern gateway to Alberta's Capital Region and one of the fastest-growing communities in Canada. Having recently implemented CAMMS interplan® and Interactive Business Planning solutions the City has now decided to implement CAMMS Personnel Evaluation System. The key benefits of aligning people to the corporate plans, replacing an outdated appraisal system and providing improved analytics were key aspects of moving forward with this approach.
