Serco Receives National ACS Award for Digital Disruption

The ACS (Australian Computer Society) – the professional association for Australia's ICT sector – announced their national ACS Digital Disruptor Awards for the teams and individuals at the forefront of digital disruption at its thought leadership summit held in November 2015. The ACS created these awards to honour the efforts of ICT professionals and organisations across industry, government and education and to recognise them as digital disruptors.

ACS selected Serco as the winner of the award for best Skills Transformation of Work Teams – for a large work team of more than 200 people. The judges said Serco won its category ‘after successfully developing self-service kiosks and self-learning tablets for prisoners who used key innovative techniques to upskill themselves.’

Particular congratulations go to the Serco teams in South Queensland Correctional Centre, Acacia Prison and Wandoo Reintegration Facility for this award win, for the implementation of technology leading to better outcomes for prisoners and our staff. This ACS national award has been made possible because of their innovative ideas and vision.

Serco’s Fiona Stanley Hospital contract was also finalist in the category of ‘Service Transformation for the Digital Consumer – Corporate’ for the introduction of integrated technologies, such as automated guided vehicles, into a greenfield site.

Around 50 finalists from a total of 13 categories were selected for the national awards to honour the efforts of ICT professionals and organisations across industry, government and education and to recognise them as digital disruptors.

Each winner was selected from hundreds of entries by an independent judging panel comprising industry experts in technology, innovation, science, academia and business.
