Auckland software firm fast tracks global plans with acquisition

“I am impressed by the management and governance that Whānau Tahi brings to the equation."

Waipareira Trust-owned software and consulting company Whānau Tahi has completed the acquisition of the assets of HSA Global Limited for an undisclosed sum, designed to fast track global expansion plans.

According to Director Stephen Keung, the deal follows the company’s recent success in North America.

“As we have assessed market demand for our core social services product, Whānau Tahi Navigator, it has become apparent that our unique approach to self-directed care could be applied to clinical care as well as social service delivery,” Keung says.

“We have been aware of HAS Global’s Connected Care (CCMS) system for some time, and decided that now was the time to make a play to consolidate our solution set which, when combined, will service some 400,000 patients/Whānau.”

Keung says that Whānau Tahi Navigator was developed utilising Waipareira Trust’s 30 years of delivering social services, and has achieved a “significant market share” in social service delivery organisations in New Zealand with an overwhelming market share among Whānau Ora providers.

“As we have established ourselves internationally, we have learned that models of care in vulnerable communities overseas need to include clinical care and CCMS provides for that,” Keung adds.

Keung says CCMS is in use in New Zealand by most major District Health Boards, as well as the Ministry of Health.

In addition, overseas customers include providers and governments in Australia, Singapore, and the USA with HAS Global Director Matt Hector-Taylor remaining with the new owners.

“It’s fantastic that we are going to be able to attach ourselves to the momentum that Whānau Tahi has achieved, both in New Zealand and overseas,” Hector-Taylor adds.

“I am impressed by the management and governance that Whānau Tahi brings to the equation.”

Whānau Tahi is 100 percent owned by Waipareira, which has been delivering services to the west Auckland community for more than 30 years and is an innovative and leading Urban Māori Authority.

Since inception, it has constantly evolved to meet the needs of the West Auckland community and has developed a large portfolio of services in the sectors of education, health, housing, justice and social services.

Waipareira services predominantly Māori, Pacific, and high needs Whānau within Waitakere City and the Waitemata.
