Barnardos Australia Places Critical Processes in Safe Hands with Nintex Promapp Deployment
SYDNEY, Sept. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Nintex, the global standard for process management and automation, has 
announced that Barnardos Australia, a leading non-government, 
non-denominational, child protection organisation providing services for 
vulnerable children, young people and their families, will deploy Nintex 
Promapp(R) throughout its operations.

The cloud-based process platform will support Barnardos' commitment to ensuring 
that its operational and compliance processes successfully become an integral 
part of the organisation's strategic objectives, management systems, policies 
and procedures. 

"As an organisation our aim is to have systems and processes in place that 
enable us to do the very best for the communities we serve, including 
vulnerable children and their families," says Penny Hood, Executive Manager, 
People & Practice, Barnardos Australia. "Having the right people on board and 
then having strong systems and processes with the right technology to support 
them is critical. We also need to use processes which are consistent and 
sufficiently robust so that staff can update and document a range of 
user-friendly procedures. Nintex Promapp will enable us to reach our goal of 
fostering a culture of continuous quality improvement."

Barnardos has more than 800 committed staff and works with a team of foster 
carers and supporters. Each year, the organisation supports more than 14,000 
children, young people and families in New South Wales (NSW) and the Australian 
Capital Territory (ACT), working with them to ensure children are living in an 
environment that is safe, stable and allows them to flourish. Over 90 per cent 
of Barnardos Australia's total expenditure is spent on direct service delivery. 

The decision to deploy Nintex Promapp ( 
) followed growth and expansion in its range of services and an internal audit 
which identified improvement opportunities in operational areas across the 
organisation. These included a requirement for a central repository of 
processes and the ongoing adoption of a culture of continuous improvement.

Barnardos also needed a solution which could support processes for both head 
office teams and remote field staff on the job. Robust procedures relating to 
donors, philanthropists and government agencies are required as the 
organisation has a duty of responsibility to report on how funds are being 
applied in the best way possible to achieve positive client outcomes. 

Nintex Promapp will help document, enhance and share process knowledge from a 
central online repository, and contribute to process improvement by assisting 
users to maintain processes via simplified process mapping. Nintex Promapp's 
improvement add-on will also provide Barnardos with a central collaboration 
point to report and track quality issues. 

In addition, Nintex Promapp will foster a culture of collaboration within 
Barnardos by enabling staff to make suggestions for process improvement as part 
of a central repository of content. The software's process variant management 
add-on will also be useful to Barnardos' operations in both the ACT and NSW 
jurisdictions where users can capture processes in line with the controlled 
variations prescribed by state legislation. 

Phase one deployment of Nintex Promapp will focus on ensuring that all 
processes and operations are captured. This will enable and support Barnardos' 
portfolio of operations by providing a consistent framework for its People and 
Practice, Corporate and Finance Services, and Engagement Partnerships and 
Giving divisions. Compliance process champions will support the rollout of 
Nintex Promapp among head office teams. 

Phase two will focus on reaping the benefits of the modular functionality of 
Nintex Promapp for continuous quality improvement, supporting a culture which 
encourages continuous feedback and providing a centralized location to manage 
processes, compliance requirements, risk and quality issues.

"We want to ensure that our valuable resources are spent on our clients. As a 
result, we'll also focus on ensuring that our back-office support and systems 
are as efficient as possible. Nintex Promapp is easy to use and understand and 
has valuable features which will support repeatable processes in line with the 
latest legislation. 

"Once fully deployed across the organisation, Nintex Promapp will enable us to 
support our compliance reporting requirements and we'll be able to map 
processes around the work we do on a day-to-day basis.

We are a highly collaborative organisation and want to deploy Nintex Promapp 
across the organisation so that it can be part of our everyday operation as 
rapidly as possible," says Penny Hood.
