Sydney and Wellington – March 21st 2013

Agresso – the ERP market’s definition of agility – announced today a significant agreement with New Zealand Post Group to provide its game-changing ERP suite, AGRESSO Business World, as an integral component of New Zealand Post Group’s major business process transformation programme.

For the last 170 years New Zealand Post has met the diverse communication needs of New Zealanders, taking their place as one of the country’s most established and respected national service providers. The New Zealand Post Group, far from being a purely mail-focused organisation, consists of a wide portfolio of businesses dedicated to providing comprehensive communication and business solutions. From their core mail business through to banking and digital solutions, New Zealand Post Group is an enterprising and continually evolving organisation.

Responding to and anticipating local and global shifts in customer needs, New Zealand Post is embarking on an ambitious transitional journey toward a modernised and more service focused business model with the customer at its heart.  To achieve this transformation, New Zealand Post required a dynamic yet centralised financial management solution (FMIS) to simplify and centralise business processes by replacing many ageing and non-integrated  legacy systems with a single core application to produce the elusive ‘single source of truth’ for all financial data across the Group.

In May 2012, Agresso participated in New Zealand Post’s tender release to identify potential finance and operational management solutions which could meet and exceed New Zealand Post’s current and projected business requirements. As the result of this exacting and rigorous tender process devised to poll the market for contemporary solutions, Agresso was named as the preferred vendor. Agresso is now set to supply and implement their game-changing enterprise financial solution, AGRESSO Business World in a multi-million dollar deal.

In implementing AGRESSO Business World, New Zealand Post seeks to minimise manual intervention by simplification and automating key business processes, access Group-wide reporting tools, enable flexible user interfaces for mobile devices - and importantly - create a single “source of truth” – keeping key financial data in one place by integrating all allied finance systems data into AGRESSO Business World. To achieve these goals New Zealand Post will be leveraging AGRESSO’s agile Finance, Procurement Management, Wholesale and Distribution, Reporting, Business Process Automation and Project Costing and Billing modules. Agresso is currently working with New Zealand Post as part of a Concept Phase Agreement, where business analysis, process reengineering and solution design is being undertaken in preparation for the Implementation Phase to follow this year.

“We are very excited to be working the New Zealand Post Group, an iconic national organisation and one which has been part of New Zealand life for more than 170 years.  It was growing increasingly problematic for the Post Group to draw timely, accurate and reliable information out of their legacy systems, a position at odds with an ambitious program of business change. The low total cost of ownership inherent in the AGRESSO Business World platform, a direct result of the underpinning easy-change architecture, once again allowed us to prevail in a hotly contested competition against other Tier 1 vendors” said John Catarinich – Chief Executive officer of Agresso Pty Limited.
