LINZ to issue RFI, search for suppliers to refresh Landonline

LINZ will also host an open market presentation to discuss project background, discuss specific requirements and provide some indicative timelines.

Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) will release preliminary information early next week on a project to modernise Landonline, a database for land title and survey information.

LINZ is issuing a request for information (RFI) as part of the process of completing a detailed business case for Landonline’s refreshment.

LINZ customer services GM Jan Pierce said Landonline is 14 years old and must become more responsive to emerging customer needs, including interoperability and 3D capability.

“We’re in the early stages of a long-term programme of work. The detailed business case is to solidify design and costings around our preferred option, which is to enhance Landonline.

“We need to make sure, however, that we innovate for future needs while building on the solid foundations of our current offering.”

The process will be run as an open RFI through the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS), fulfilling LINZ’s obligation as a core government agency to ensure that any Crown capital projects are advertised to both domestic and international suppliers.

“The RFI will give us a better understanding of the number and type of suppliers and the range of solutions, technology and products or services available,” said Pierce.

On March 10 LINZ will also host an open market presentation to discuss the importance of the RFI process, provide project background, discuss specific requirements and provide some indicative timelines. Potential suppliers will have a chance to ask questions and network during the presentation.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
