CHL Victoria moves ahead with ELO

Toshiba (Australia) has announced a win with document management partner ELO to implement  document management solutions for Victoria’s Community Housing Ltd (CHL). CHL originated in Australia in 1993 and is a national and international housing provider delivering affordable housing in four regions of the world.

CHL was looking to implement an electronic document management system which would immediately minimise the overwhelming burden of paper invoices in the accounts payable department, as well as becoming the main repository for all electronic documents across the organisation in the long term.

“We wanted to streamline the accounts payable process by implementing approval workflows, together with integration with CHL’s existing finance system, facilitating the creation of relevant metadata for individual invoice documents,” said Tonya Wild, Business Systems Co-ordinator, Corporate Services at CHL.

“We also needed to establish a document management regime for other areas of CHL’s business, including HR, compliance, learning and development, quality assurance and project tendering,” she continued.

CHL decided to implement Toshiba and ELO’s document management solution based on enhancing CHL’s existing valued relationship with Toshiba.

“The collaborative solution offered by Toshiba and ELO seemed to be cutting-edge, simple and ‘no fuss’, and the professionals from both companies were experts in the field and a pleasure to deal with. Our existing relationship with Toshiba also instilled a level of confidence that the ELO solution would be of benefit to CHL,” said Tonya.
