November 1, 2017 (Lincoln, Neb.)  —The State of Nebraska’s Office of the CIO, has received Hyland’s OnBase Government Innovation Award. The State of Nebraska was selected as the award winner, through a live voting process earlier this month, at the 2017 CommunityLIVE conference early last month.

The State of Nebraska was nominated and presented the government’s case management solution, which utilizes OnBase WorkView to streamline processes for its 309 Task Force – a team of eight employees responsible for overseeing projects related to deferred maintenance for state buildings.  Using OnBase, the 309 Task Force inputs governor-approved initiatives into WorkView to be approved by a department architect and converted into quick, customized reports for the legislature.

“Routine operations of the 309 Task Force involve managing an average of 150 active projects each month, which was extremely difficult with our legacy construction management application,” said Caleb Wederquist, lead developer at the State of Nebraska. “Converting to OnBase and leveraging the WorkView solution, employees now effectively manage financials for all projects, collaborating with up to 100 state employees throughout 20 agencies smoothly and swiftly with access anytime, anywhere.”

“The State of Nebraska’s transformative use of WorkView to accelerate its 309 Task Force processes across numerous government agencies is exemplary. We congratulate them on earning the 2017 OnBase Government Innovation Award and look forward to seeing how they will expand their solution over the coming years,” said Terri Jones, government solution marketing manager at Hyland.

At the information management conference, three government finalists showcased their use of enterprise content management tools, and presented the most transformative solutions.  Over 2,000 of Hyland’s customers, partners, experts and executives were in attendance.
