Queensland tech powering the world’s busiest control rooms
Queensland’s tourism and major events sector is the envy of all other states.
Be it games or concerts at Suncorp Stadium, the Gabba, Heritage Bank Stadium and Queensland Country Bank Stadium, leading festivals around the state or community events like fun runs and triathlons in some of our favourite beachside towns, tens of thousands of people flock to Queensland each year to engage in these events.
Few, if any of these participants though could comprehend the sheer scale of logistics delivered behind the scenes to ensure both their enjoyment and their health and safety.
Fortunately, a groundbreaking piece of Queensland technology is providing that peace of mind, both here at home and increasingly in international markets.
Chronosoft is a market leading provider of control centre and incident management software solutions, making operations safer, more efficient and helping to manage and mitigate risk.
Chronosoft was born out of a tragic incident at a music festival, where its founders identified critical issues and saw the need for a customisable incident management solution that could capture real-time data in a reliable way.
The solution was Chronosoft’s now flagship product, Chronicler, which has revolutionised control room operations with real-time incident management and a user-friendly digital dashboard, providing a unified view of incidents to enable effective and streamlined communication.
Chronicler has enhanced the operation of a wide range of industry control rooms, both here in Australia and across international markets, including at festivals and events, sporting and endurance activities, stadiums and venues, health, transport, security and Government services.
In fact, its effectiveness across these sectors led to it being identified, and ultimately chosen, to play a critical role in one of the most significant historical events in recent memory: the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Chronicler served as the cornerstone of Operation London Bridge (OLB), delivering an all-encompassing and adaptive management system utilised by all agencies at all levels in the delivery of the period of mourning and the funeral of HM Elizabeth II.
The platform was then again deployed earlier this year as the event-wide incident management solution for Operation Golden Orb (OGO) for the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
These join a list of major international events supported by Chronosoft, including the UCI World Road Cycling Championship.
Chronosoft’s impressive achievements were recognised at the 2023 Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards, nominated as a finalist in both the Advanced Technologies and Emerging Exporter categories.
After being crowned the Emerging Exporter of the Year, Chronosoft Director Edward Swete Kelly reflected on the company’s impressive trajectory to date.
“Our success in the export market has been driven by our demonstrated commitment to innovation, product diversification and market expansion,” he said.
“We have embraced technology to optimise our operations and enhance our competitive edge, positioning ourselves as leaders in providing effective and efficient incident management to some of the largest global events in recent history.”
“We are incredibly proud of the impact we have had on our sector, as well as our remarkable growth into the UK, US and New Zealand, and look forward to continuing to build on our success.”
