Nintex Automates JobKeeper Payment Scheme Nomination Process
Sydney - 4 May 2020—Nintex today announced the company has launched a completely automated solution to help Australian organisations expedite their participation in the Federal Government’s JobKeeper $130 billion payment scheme. By turning the government’s paper-based nomination process into a powerful and easy-to-use automated workflow solution, Nintex is digitally transforming the way Australian employers and their employees complete the necessary documentation to secure wage benefits.
“We’re committed to improving processes through automation as well as ensuring a process-centric mindset is at the centre of business thinking,” says Christian Lucarelli, Vice President, Sales APAC, Nintex.
“By digitising the JobKeeper nomination process Nintex is delivering on our mission to improve the way people work with collaborative, automated solutions that deliver rapid results.”
The automated JobKeeper Payment Scheme solution from Nintex is available to organisations across Australia for free. To learn more, visit: https://www.nintex.com/blog/automate-jobkeeper-employee-nominations
How the JobKeeper Payment Scheme works
In order to qualify for the JobKeeper scheme employers must receive agreement from every employee before nominating them for the subsidy. At present, the Australian Tax Office (ATO) supports different methods for the processing of employee nominations, which include downloading a paper-based Word document or PDF form from the ATO website. Both versions have a signature box on the form which requires paper, printing, signing, scanning, and emailing of the final document. This time-intensive process also requires employers to manually sift through hundreds or thousands of PDF attachments in emails to classify and store these files.
Now with the fully automated JobKeeper employee nomination process solution from Nintex, paper and manual steps are eliminated from the nomination process. To build its automated JobKeeper solution, Nintex leveraged several of the core automation capabilities of the Nintex Process Platform including: Nintex Forms, Nintex Workflow and Nintex Sign™ powered by Adobe Sign for capturing eSignatures.
The basis for Nintex’s digital nomination process is a ready-to-use, downloadable JobKeeper Employee Nomnination template form (https://gallery.nintex.com/5e9e0cb2e15ad600452fa79b/JobKeeper%20Employee%20Nomination). The form is designed to be easily launched with a customer’s own Nintex Workflow Cloud environment and is optimised for mobile devices to make it easier for all participants to complete the required information including electronic signatures. With Nintex, employers can also quickly configure their own workflow and store completed forms in a centralised content management system or on a company intranet, route them to a central email address, or simply store them in an electronic file store to share on completion.
Nintex’s Australian partners are lending support to organisations with the deployment of the automated workflow solution, providing a value-add to their existing service agreements. Here is what three of them had to say:
Rodney Barrell, Victorian Regional Lead at Empired: “Helping our clients respond quickly to the current situation with new ways of working has been key for us over the past few weeks, and the Nintex JobKeeper offering is a perfect example of a solution that allows our clients to rapidly and cost effectively digitise what could otherwise be a manual, time consuming process.”
Cameron Smith, Executive General Manager Digital Transformation at SXiQ: “With a rapidly changing environment through the COVID-19 crisis, Nintex has enabled our clients to rapidly build automation and workflows to address compliance and process gaps. This has been pivotal in work-from-home compliance and JobKeeper processes which were built in hours, not days.”
Nick Barbagiannopoulos, National Manager of Digital Automation at Ricoh Australia: “Your mobile workforce isn’t locked down by their location or their device – productivity flows everywhere with the right tools. These same tools can support the initiatives rolled out by the Australian government. Based on the Nintex technologies, the JobKeeper onboarding process can be simplified and streamlined for all making it easy for everyone involved to obtain the benefits of this program.”
