​Vo2 wins Waikato-based dairy managed services contract

Vo2 strikes office computing deal with Livestock Improvement Corporation.

Vo2 has struck an office computing deal with Livestock Improvement Corporation (LIC), with the newly formed company awarded managed user computing services and IT hardware contracts.

After launching the business in June, terms of the deal will see Vo2 and LIC enter a new two-year collaboration with a one-year right of renewal, extending a previous a partnership that has spanned six years.

As reported by Reseller News, the newly formed Vo2 Group Limited encompasses Vo2 Waikato (formerly CodeBlue Hamilton), Vo2 Bay of Plenty (formerly CodeBlue Tauranga) and the Hamilton-based Vo2 Software and employs over 50 people.

Following an open market engagement through an RFP process, Vo2 will now provide the organisation with technology services and systems to support LIC and LIC Automation’s users’ desktops, laptops and mobile devices, extending across New Zealand and its international operations.

“Vo2 have an innate understanding of our business and provide us with the IT support, agility and responsiveness our business needs in today’s global and digital marketplace,” LIC CIO, Paul Littlefair, said.

As New Zealand's largest supplier of genetic services, LIC provides technology solutions to the dairy industry, housing more than 600 employees and 1000 devices as a result.

Headquartered in Newstead, Hamilton, the organisation also has offices globally, including the UK, Ireland, Australia and Brazil, plus distributors in China, Japan, South Africa and South America.

“LIC’s vision is to improve the prosperity and productivity of farmers and we’re looking forward to further strengthening their ability to do so by providing service management capabilities and toolsets to contribute to their ongoing innovation in the dairy sector,” Vo2 CEO, Garry Johnston, added.

“We are working with a wider variety of New Zealand businesses and organisations than ever before and it’s reassuring to see companies such as LIC, among other new customers, share our vision of innovation and improvement achieved through technology, mirroring Vo2’s ongoing investment in tools, capabilities and methodologies.”
