Datacom buys Origen, integrates staff into government team

The company will work to provide cloud-deployment options for Origen's Ozone solution this year.

New Zealand-headquartered Datacom has acquired Origen Technology, a Tauranga-based technology company that has developed and deployed Ozone, an enterprise software platform for local authorities.

Ozone manages core functions across regulatory, financial and customer service workloads for the local government sector and is currently being used by approximately 20 per cent of New Zealand Councils, according to the company.

All Origen staff will join Datacom’s Australasian-wide local government solutions team, and will continue to be based in Tauranga.

Jonathan Usher, MD of Datacom Solutions, said, “We are delighted to bring Ozone and the Origen team into Datacom.

“A key near term priority is to ensure cloud deployment options for Ozone as well as regulatory module support for the Australian local government sector, which we expect to be available this year.”

Roy Simpson, CEO of Origen, said, “We are all excited about the opportunities that joining forces with Datacom presents. We are passionate about the local government sector and together we can accelerate investment in the Ozone product.”

According to the firm, it has worked with local authorities in New Zealand for over four decades, and around 70 per cent of councils in New Zealand use software or services developed by the firm.
