We have been asked by the PostingConnect team to share this article with our families.
Defence are in the process of developing a simple and modern platform that will support members and their families through the posting process.
When the PostingConnect project team sat down and spoke to military families they frequently heard about the complexities and difficulties associated with posting. These were even more prominent for those posting for the first time. This resulted in a vision to provide a simple, intuitive and integrated platform to guide members and their families through the posting process.
So what is PostingConnect?
PostingConnect is an exciting initiative that will provide a single platform from which your posting can be managed. Upon accessing PostingConnect you will be asked some quick questions about your posting requirements, so that you are provided with the tasks and information relevant to you.
PostingConnect will be accessible on all devices including phones, tablets, and computers, and will be available both on and off the Defence network. The site will also provide direct access into other posting services, including the Toll and Defence Housing Australia, removing the need to login to multiple systems.
Access for Families
We are aware that partners, friends, and family members are often involved and directly impacted by the posting process. That’s why we are developing PostingConnect to support the ability for a ‘nominee’ to access the site and view all tasks, information, and support available. This will enable a nominee, whether it be a member’s partner, friend, or family member, to assist with tasks such as finding accommodation.
Involvement and input from military members and their families is a critical element of the PostingConnect project. User testing sessions continue to guide and influence all design aspects of the platform. Over the coming months, we will continue to test the site with members and families, in preparation for an initial release of PostingConnect later this year.
