Introducing modern technology in government has arrived with Brief Connect, our Briefing Management & Correspondence Platform

Digitising the briefing and correspondence process within government is no easy task but over the past two years Engage Squared has spent thousands of hours solving these hurdles. We have crafted bespoke architecture and now work with multiple government departments, making us the leaders in this space. We understand the struggles, which is why we are extremely proud to help modernise an outdated system with Brief Connect; a digital platform built to automate correspondence and briefs.

Brief Connect has been designed to digitise the way government employees work by bringing multiple tracking systems together and allowing users to initiate and manage briefs from the department all the way through to Premier’s approval.

Replacing what can be a manual, paper-based, and time intensive process for government employees, Brief Connect has been built as a centralised platform for briefings to be managed, whilst also offering the visibility to manage and report on briefing status’.

Through Brief Connect, briefings can be created, tracked and approved all in one place, with an interactive and personal dashboard whilst enabling users to easily create and share reports, manage workflows and their own security model across different product types. Brief Connect allows records to have the appropriate levels of access, with control given back to Departments to determine and update access where required.  ​

Brief Connect is built on top of Microsoft 365, utilising the powerful document management in SharePoint Online, the Power Automate workflow engine, and Azure AD security controls. In the background, it can integrate with HP Content Manager (TRIM) to plug into the existing retention and disposition management platform required by the department.​

Microsoft Teams Integration 

With adoption of Microsoft Teams higher than ever, Brief Connect has been designed to fully integrate as a Microsoft Teams app and is accessible by all users from the action bar on the left side of the users Teams platform. 

Brief Connect has been designed for hybrid working and is accessed through Microsoft Teams on phones, iPad’slaptops and home computers, with access controlled by the sophisticated security in Azure Active Directory to ensure security is never compromised.

Brief Connect allows users to increase their productivity​ and work in their primary day-to-day tool meaning adoption of the tool naturally increase as record change notifications come through the Teams activity feed.
