Freedom of Information Management.

Information is a valuable and powerful resource which is at the heart of every government decision and activity. 

The Freedom of Information Act recognises that the information government holds is a national resource and is managed for public purposes, and that public access to it should be prompt and at the lowest reasonable cost.

Why use Nimblex for your Freedom of Information Management.

Have a strictly limited IT budget?

Need FOI software implemented quickly?

Already have standard FOI Management processes?

Want a solid foundation for future changes?

Freedom of Information Management Solution.

How did we manage before we had Nimblex? I like it because it is so easy to use. It just works. We have over 100 users working in the system every day and I would highly recommend the product and the Nimblex team to help any business.

The problems with a manual approach.

Many government departments and agencies still manage the FOI process using posted paper requests, emails and spreadsheets. This is:

  • Time consuming (adds to the cost)
  • Due dates can be missed
  • Difficulties in reporting
  • Difficult to audit accurately
  • Labour intensive (adds to the cost)
  • Inefficient distribution of the workload
  • Hard to track

How Nimblex solves this problem.

The Nimblex FOI Solution is an online case management platform which automates and digitises the process and offers an adaptable approach to managing FOI Requests. It provides a more efficient way of releasing information while making sure the process is followed and can be reported on.

A single source of truth: the system offers a central place to manage the requests, from start to finish.
It can be hosted in the Cloud, making it secure and accessible, any time and from anywhere.

Employs a consistent and repeatable way of handling requests.

Our FOI solution does not require much configuation to get you up and running, and we can create your unique FOI Management solution as everything can be customised quickly using low-code configuration.

FOI Request Management.

Live Dashboards

Use the live dashboard to assess and manage FOI requests. The dashboard displays the new requests that have been received but have not been allocated to the team. This information can be used to mark the requests valid/invalid once they have been assessed.

Manage Team Work Load

Nimblex offers an FOI Manager’s dashboard to give a snapshot of the workload that can be used to allocate the work accordingly. Intelligent reporting gives you information about the size of requests, which aids better planning and reduces bottlenecks.

User Groups and Roles

The FOI solution offers different groups of users, and access permissions are granted accordingly. Each user group has a role-specific dashboard. Users include:
– Paralegal
– Privacy Officer
– FOI Officer
– FOI Manager

Workflows &

The solution includes Workflows and Approvals for various processes such as:
– FOI Requests
– Privacy Incidents
– Complaints
– Subpoenas

Automated Communication

The system offers email notifications/reminders and alerts as well as generating mail merge documents using pre-defined templates. Emails can be logged against records for audit purposes.

Tracking Upcoming Due & Overdue Dates

Nimblex can track the days it takes to complete a request from start to end. This information is presented with coloured backgrounds for traffic light reporting. Furthermore, it is easy to report on invalid FOI Requests.

FOI Request Status

Nimblex tracks and reports on the status of the request. The FOI Manager can simply filter the records based on the status to get the progress reports and reports on closed and open requests. Since the data is in a digital format, it can easily be searched.


Nimblex offers sophisticated reporting capabilities that allow you to manage and analyse your processes and data. Reports can also be exported in other formats, e.g. PDF, for printing.

Compliance and Auditing

Compliance and business rules can be built into the workflows and eForms, and since every action is logged, there is a secure audit trail available for scrutiny.
