IRD selects Accenture as preferred provider

Inland Revenue has selected Accenture as its preferred provider of design services for the first stage of its business transformation programme.

Inland Revenue has selected Accenture as its preferred provider of design services for the first stage of its business transformation programme.

Commissioner of Inland Revenue Naomi Ferguson, says the programme is a business-led, technology enabled transformation, which includes re-designing nearly every part of Inland Revenue.

“Tax and entitlement administration is critical for New Zealand, and it is essential Inland Revenue plan its changes carefully, and implements them properly, so New Zealanders can have trust and belief in its systems,” she says.

“That is why we need a partner like Accenture, which has designed and implemented systems of similar scale and requirement before.

“Throughout the procurement process, Accenture clearly demonstrated it had the right capabilities, capacity and experience to assist Inland Revenue."

Deputy Commissioner Change at Inland Revenue Greg James, says Inland Revenue is changing to make it easier for New Zealanders to pay their tax and get what they’re entitled to.

“Our business transformation programme will reduce compliance, administration time and costs, deliver better services for our customers, and make it easier for Government to implement policy,” he adds.

“Accenture’s experience and knowledge will make an important contribution to the success of the business transformation programme."

Inland Revenue will now commence negotiations with Accenture, which are expected to be completed following Cabinet’s consideration of the Transformation Design Business case.

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.
