What we do

Chemdata support in Australia and New Zealand

Chemdata is used by almost all metropolitan fire services in Australia and New Zealand. It is part of their operational regime in chemical incidents and emergencies. Our role is 24/7 software support and to collect data on local products and local contact numbers where emergency responders can obtain advice in the context of any incident involving a company's product.

There are questions and answers which carry a score. This means you need to register a unique username to do the course. Check out the site privacy policy to see your secret score is safe with us!


Security requirements analysis

We look for the weaknesses in your information flows which would be attractive to people without scruples. If they steal or encrypt your information and hold it for ransom, your bottom line and reputation suffer. No point shoring up defences and leaving unidentified holes.

ICT requirements analysis

Everything in your domain which we analyse is assessed in the context of your revenue model and business direction. We see where your existing technology is helping and/or hindering before writing a requirements report which includes stategic options.

Strategic ICT planning

Your growing business success depends on introducing technology in the correct sequence and intervals to boost productivity rather than threaten it. The plan we deliver shows your predicted business milestones and our recommendations for technology which will contribute to profit growth at each point along the way. We don't underestimate your in-house culture nor any requirements you foresee.

Project design and implementation

We break your strategic plan into projects according to stakeholder groups. Individual projects are designed so measurable returns commence as early as possible. We like projects to be granular enough to retain strategic flexibility. We expect unexpected change in the business landscape. We use success tests to manage project implementation. It is vital to see early success so the enterprise can achieve early ROI.

Technology services management

We work with your existing technology providers with your authority to achieve your goals. We write the specifications and make sure problems are avoided. We hate surprises and technology providers who work with us love our clear directions and straightforward contract management.

Software development management

If you need customised software it is essential to know how it will contribute to your bottom line. We manage development and delivery of working software in collaboration with your stakeholders. We ask them to prioritise by greatest business value so we can deliver in exactly that sequence. Our overriding driver is the optimum return on your investment.

Wide experience

Our clients range from very small businesses to multinational corporations - from profit driven to not-for-profit. All are focused on achieving their business targets and that is our motivation.

Productivity through quality

In our set of business principles, quality assurance is about using technology to prevent costly mistakes. We design or use systems and write software to help humans avoid drudgery and deliver their best possible production outcomes.

Success-test driven

We manage stakeholders by asking what will satisfy them. We write success-tests to translate their business objectives into technology acceptance criteria. When we work for you we document what you expect. We don't pay suppliers if they can't deliver what was specified.

We enjoy technology because we can make it work to achieve objectives. That's what we do.
