Empired is claiming traction for its Cohesion proprietary enterprise content, records and collaboration management platform in New Zealand, after a big win at Oranga Tamariki.
Specifically, the deal adds 4500 more users to the company's base, which had grown to 11,500 in recent months.
The Cohesion platform is built predominately on Microsoft technologies and incorporates a range of Empired proprietary and third-party software.
Cohesion is available in public cloud, private cloud or on Microsoft Office 365 for an implementation fee plus an ongoing software-as-a-service (SaaS) fee typically priced per user.
The SaaS fee per user can range significantly depending on the platform selected, modules implemented and services consumed.
“We are delighted to have been selected by some of New Zealand’s largest government agencies to help them manage their critical information assets," said Russell Baskerville, managing director of Empired. "We are confident that our offering is portable to the Australian market and excited by the opportunity this presents to us."
Oranga Tamariki is a relatively new ministry charged with supporting any child in New Zealand whose wellbeing is at significant risk of harm.
The ministry selected Cohesion as the core software to deliver intranet and related content services. It will also assess a range of additional modules and functionality which may also be deployed.
Empired said it would continue to focus on adoption of Cohesion into NZ Public sector where there exists a total market opportunity of 80,000 users.
The technology provider has also completed significant work on readying Cohesion for launch in Australia including the establishment of a dedicated sales function. The Australian public sector market opportunity there is estimated at 1.8 million users.
