Kiwi-made software installed on Australian Taxation Office desktops

According to Dr Kevin Taylor, CEO of Christchurch-based Wellnomics, the deal is a step towards having the company's software installed across all 200,000 employees in the Australian Federal Government

Christchurch-based occupational health and safety software company, Wellnomics, has had its office ergonomics software implemented on over 25,000 desktops in the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

The deal follows earlier implementations within other Commonwealth public service departments including the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Australian Federal Police, CSIRO and the federal government’s workplace health and safety agency Comcare.

“As part of meeting their health and safety obligations the ATO chose to implement the Wellnomics Risk Management and WorkPace software for their 25,000 office staff,” said Dr Kevin Taylor, CEO of Wellnomics. “This deal is an important step towards our goal of having our software installed across all 200,000 employees in the Australian Federal Government.

“During the tender process Wellnomics was judged to provide the strongest solution. The software helps ATO both identify staff at risk of injury and proactively reduce these risks. ATO will be analysing the results over the next 12 to 24 months and are expecting to see significant benefits from the initiative.”

Interest in office ergonomic software that promotes breaks and exercises for computer users has increased recently due to research showing the serious health risks of sedentary office work.

“Our solution not only reminds staff when to take breaks, it also provides centralised reporting that allows companies to remotely monitor, measure and manage the risks across their entire organisation,” explained Dr Taylor.

Stephen Gardener of Wellnomics’ Australian partner Balanced Ergonomics said, “Based upon results in other organisations we expect ATO’s payback period for their investment will be very quick. Success at ATO will pave the way for many other organisations in Australia to implement our solution.”
