REMPLAN DIY Local Business Database with CRM Functionality

The REMPLAN Business Analysis Module (BAM) is a powerful resource for economic development and planning. For government agencies, REMPLAN software enables Australian Business Register (ABR) data to be combined with local knowledge to provide unique insights into the number and type of businesses operating in your area.  This resource is used to support funding applications, strategic planning, economic development strategies, for customer service delivery and engagement with local businesses.  


"Cost effective means of building and maintaining a database of local businesses" 

BAM is an easy to use business database that gives you access to the businesses operating in your area, rather than property owners.   The software is accessible to all staff with an official email address of your organisation.  All changes and exports of data are logged in the software's history feature (visible to all staff), helping to ensure that your data and local businesses’ privacy is protected.


"Reduce the duplication of business lists and systems and improve customer service"

A valuable feature is the capacity for staff to add new businesses, add additional information about local businesses, and edit existing business records.  The ABR data is augmented by the information about local businesses that staff collect in the course of their daily work, including:  
  • Internet and social media
  • Phone and mobile
  • Individual contacts
  • Number of staff and office size
  • General notes on who was contacted and when.

The Business Analysis Module allows you to report on and contact local businesses based on:
  • Industry sector (down to a 5 digit ANZSIC level)
  • Location (e.g. LGA, suburbs, post code, planning areas, statistical areas)
  • Entity type (e.g. Pty Ltd, sole trader)
  • GST registration.

The data can be further filtered based on whether businesses are:
  • Currently trading 
  • Previously trading (as of a specified historical date)
  • New entries (within a specified date range)
  • Exits (within a specified date range).


"Any business details that are added or edited by  staff  are reconciled by the software with the next update of your ABR data"

The ongoing management of your business data is a key feature of the REMPLAN Business Analysis Module, along with a unique mapping interface  and integration with a powerful economic and demographic analysis package.

The Business Analysis Module is available to Australian government agencies (local, state and federal), as well as universities as part of the REMPLAN Economy Package at no additional cost.

Please contact the REMPLAN team to discuss the Business Analysis Module for your organisation:

New SEIFA (Relative Disadvantage) Report - Online Community Profiles



 We are pleased to advise you that online REMPLAN Community Profiles now display a new ‘SEIFA (Relative Disadvantage)’ report.

Social Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) is a suite of indexes that have been created by the Australian Bureau of Statistics from social and economic Census information.

The new ‘SEIFA (Relative Disadvantage)’ report presents information from the Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD), a general socio-economic index that summarises a range of information about the economic and social conditions of people and households within an area. This index includes only measures of relative disadvantage.
  
A SEIFA low score indicates relatively greater disadvantage in general. For example, an area could have a low score if there are (among other things): 
  • Many households with low income, many people with no qualifications, or many people in low skill occupations.

A SEIFA high score indicates a relative lack of disadvantage in general. For example, an area may have a high score if there are (among other things):
  • Few households with low incomes, few people with no qualifications, and few people in low skilled occupations. 

The SEIFA report is a useful resource to assist with funding applications. SEIFA is particularly relevant where the objective of the fund is to promote growth and sustainability of disadvantaged regions, especially in cases where level of disadvantage forms part of the assessment criteria. E.g. National Stronger Regions Fund (NSRF) projects must deliver economic advantage to disadvantaged regions and assessment criteria include ‘…the extent to which a project addresses disadvantage in a region’.

To view the report via the online profiles, select the 'Wellbeing' tab towards the top right of the screen, then select 'SEIFA (Relative Disadvantage)' from the sub-menu.

Please click on the image below for an live example of the SEIFA report:

Feel free to contact the REMPLAN team on 1300 737 443 if you have any questions regarding the SEIFA report.
