Melbourne Markets – EPMLive WorkEngine
The Melbourne Markets are the central wholesale trading and distribution centre for Victoria’s fresh produce industry. The Melbourne Market Authority is responsible for managing the site and its operations which include the Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market and the National Flower Centre plus an extensive range of associated warehousing and distribution facilities. It is one of six central fresh produce markets in Australia.
Melbourne Markets are in the process of planning the relocation from the existing site in Footscray Road to the new site in Epping. The relocation program is a significant program of work with a complex range of interdependent activities. Melbourne Markets realised the need to put in place a practical project management toolset to support consistency in the recording and reporting of project information for the program. They selected EPMLive WorkEngine as their preferred toolset and Core Consulting Group (CCG) as their implementation partner.
Core Consulting Group reviewed the program structure, data requirements and reporting needs for the program. Using this information they configured a hosted instance of WorkEngine to suit the needs of the relocation program and provided training and support to embed the solution into the program.
The outcome for Melbourne Markets is an effective centralised repository of all program data, the ability to collaborate on-line and provide effective reporting into different governance groups.
