Authored by - May 3, 2024


Sydney, Australia – May 6, 2024 – We are absolutely thrilled to announce that EncompaaS, a global leader in advanced Information Management solutions, has been selected by the NSW Government for its groundbreaking initiative to bring planning into the 21st Century.

This initiative is a testament to the NSW Government’s commitment to delivering on affordable housing outcomes required for NSW. The government’s investment of $5.6 million to trial AI in local planning systems is a fantastic initiative that will support councils as they scale up to meet the demand for affordable housing.

The selection of ADAPTOVATE’s AI solution, ‘Development Assessment Intelligence System (DAISY)’, underscores our commitment to leveraging technology to address complex challenges in the planning system.

“We are excited about this opportunity to collaborate with local councils. Our DAISY system will help councils reduce average DA assessment times by helping applicants get relevant information quickly and easily and then identifying administration and data input errors to enable councils to scale their development application process to meet the demands of NSW. This will be instrumental in helping councils deliver on their affordable housing initiatives,” said Douglas Ross, Managing Director at ADAPTOVATE.

“Moreover, this initiative is a fantastic opportunity for the people of NSW. With the support of ADAPTOVATE’s AI solutions, they will be able to get more and better development applications successfully ready to start building. We are thrilled to bring value for money to councils in delivering AI-based technologies that support delivering affordable housing at scale across NSW,” said Douglas Ross.

Dustin McClung, CEO of GADALI said, “GADALI is excited about its role on the NSW Government’s AI Solutions Panel, recognising this project as a vital platform to further its commitment to promoting Indigenous engagement in the ICT sector. The collaboration with Adaptovate and EncompaaS aligns with GADALI’s strategic direction, leveraging Microsoft AI technologies to deliver efficiencies to councils and the broader community.”

Jesse Todd, CEO of EncompaaS, conveyed his enthusiasm, stating, “EncompaaS is delighted to collaborate with ADAPTOVATE and Gadali in becoming part of the esteemed AI Solutions Panel. We eagerly anticipate our contribution to deploying advanced AI solutions, backed by meticulous data preparation, to help the NSW councils achieve their AI interests more securely, efficiently, and intelligently.”
