Empired secures NZD$12m ‘Cohesion’ contract with Ministry for Primary Industries New Zealand

3 March 2015

3 March 2015 - Empired has announced that it has secured via its wholly owned subsidiary Intergen Limited a contract to provide services to the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) in New Zealand.

Under the MPI contract, Empired will use its proprietary Enterprise Content Management solution 'Cohesion' to provide electronic document and records management as a service. The contract has an estimated NZD$12m value over a 6 year contract term.

Commenting on the contract award, Empired Managing Director Mr Russell Baskerville said, “This contract cements the decision by Intergen management to commit substantial resources over the previous 3 years in the development and positioning of the Cohesion service. We are confident that providing this service to MPI in New Zealand will provide exceptional credibility and competitive advantage as additional New Zealand Government departments elect to shift their Enterprise Content Management solutions into a cloud-based ‘as a service’ model under the panel contract.”

Mr Baskerville went on to say, “We are delighted to have been selected by MPI to provide this service. We thank MPI for their trust and we look forward to working with MPI to deliver an exceptional outcome. I would also like to thank all our staff that have been involved in working with the New Zealand Government and the development of the Cohesion service offering. This is an exceptional outcome and I look forward to Cohesion developing into the leading Enterprise Content Management service used across all of New Zealand Government during the coming years.”
