Pushing boudaries: technology streamlines crime-fighting for Australia’s Border Force
The Australian Border Force is responsible for checking any air cargo items that are identified as high risk. Officers visit mail depots daily to check these items. Prior to the implementation of their new platform, officers needed to manage up to 40 printed forms which required meticulous notes to detail the outcomes of their inspections. Working with Microsoft Consulting Services, and with input from officers, SMSMT built a fully fledged app, eBorderForce which ran on the Surface Pros.
The backend of the solution was built on Microsoft Dynamics 365. A highly scalable business application solution, Dynamics 365 could potentially be used across the entire organisation. .Built and tested on Microsoft Azure, the solution delivered on a private network as the agency’s data are classified.
