New Zealand Defence Force awards Gen-i major licensing contract
Posted on 16-Dec-2009 10:20. | Tags Filed under: News.



The New Zealand Defence Force and Gen-i have extended their telecommunications and IT services relationship with the award of a major new licensing contract.

The New Zealand Defence Force has awarded Gen-i a three year contract for Microsoft and other software licensing management, as well as NetApp hardware procurement with enabling software.

The New Zealand Defence Force says as a result it anticipates reduced licensing costs, greater efficiency from its licensing and significant procurement and operating efficiencies.

The New Zealand Defence Force is continually looking at ways of reducing costs while increasing productivity.
New Zealand Defence Force’s Chief Information Officer (CIO), Peter Thomas, says reviewing how it buys software and manages key vendors is key to achieving this goal.

“Appointing Gen-i as our Microsoft and licensing management partner will help us maximise our ICT investment and achieve greater value for money,” he says.

“Gen-i has worked with us to ensure we make the most out of our existing investments and has delivered us an innovative solution that allows us to achieve greater licensing efficiencies and further drive down costs.

“Gen-i understands our business and is regarded as a strategic ICT partner who has always looked after our needs. We have worked closely together to achieve a great result that reaches across the entire organisation,” he said.

Gen-i was awarded the New Zealand Defence Force’s licensing contract following a competitive tender.

Chris Quin, Gen-i’s Chief Executive Officer, said Gen-i took the time to understand the requirements of the New Zealand Defence Force and delivered a solution that would meet the agency’s current and future needs.

“As a preferred IT supplier to the New Zealand Defence Force, we are delighted to extend our existing relationship and further help them achieve their goals,” he says.

“We’ve used our extensive licensing expertise and in-depth knowledge of the New Zealand Defence Force to deliver a solution that delivers real business benefits.”

Gen-i currently provides New Zealand Defence Force with its desktop and laptop PCs and peripherals, managed data services, enterprise PABX (voice), infrastructure and equipment and professional services
