"The new Customer Complaints Management System (CCMS) provides a comprehensive, enterprise solution for collecting, storing, and analyzing customer complaints. The new system, developed with the Pega Government Platform™ (PGP), provides the Queensland Department of Education with a modern, easy-to-use system that can be expanded in the future."

The Business Issue

The Department of Education in Queensland, Australia provides services to more than 800,000 school students and almost 300,000 children enrolled in early childhood services across the state.

Previously, the department relied on spreadsheets to track and manage complaints for each business unit and significant manual effort was required for data collection and reporting. There was also limited complaint information available, which hampered the department’s ability to efficiently review and analyze customer complaints to identify trends, issues, and opportunities for improvement.

The Solution

The Department of Education engaged Pegasystems to develop a new system for managing customer complaints that would allow it to more efficiently and effectively address the needs of its customers and meet its reporting and compliance obligations.

The new Customer Complaints Management System (CCMS) provides a comprehensive, enterprise solution for collecting, storing, and analyzing customer complaints. The Pega Government Platform™ (PGP) offers a simple, easy-to-use interface and the ability to rapidly build and deploy applications, leveraging the platform’s built-in case management framework.
