U-Bix Partners With NZ Police in its Biggest Deal

U-Bix Partners With New Zealand Police in its Biggest Deal Ever

New Zealand's only major locally owned document management company, U-Bix Document Solutions, has formed a strategic partnership with New Zealand Police in a deal worth more than $5 million.

The deal, the biggest in U-Bix's 28 year history will involve all 380 staff around the country and will see more than 400 police stations using U-Bix's hardware, software and outsourced document printing services.

The four-year partnership will commence this month with the roll out of equipment and services.

U-Bix national sales manager, Daryl Young says the company is delighted to secure the business with New Zealand Police after a satisfying tender process, which gives U-Bix 100 percent penetration - a big jump from the previous 20 percent.

"By using a best practice methodology to establish an eight step framework we have developed a business improvement solution that will ensure New Zealand Police receives excellent service and dramatic cost savings," he says.

In fact conservative estimates show U-Bix expect to achieve $150,000 - $300,000 per year in cost savings for New Zealand Police.

New Zealand Police Procurement Manager Peter Kiernan says the partnership with U-Bix will help the Police better utilise its resources and with the innovative pricing model provide considerable opportunity for the reduction in costs."

The contract does not include the purchase or lease of equipment. U-Bix will instead be deploying hardware using a managed services approach. This provides for total flexibility in terms of machine deployment over time, ensuring lowest cost no matter what changes occur in the client's environment.

User requirements will be assessed and a "best fit" U-Bix technology will be allocated to match the copy volumes with variances continually monitored.

With U-Bix's solution including 26 service delivery sites located around the country complete coverage is achieved allowing New Zealand Police to co-ordinate activities nationwide.

"Our strategy is consistency, control and cost reduction. It was this approach combined with our national network and our commitment and ability to service each police station as well as our leading-edge document solutions that secured the deal for us," says Mr Young.

Streamlining of New Zealand Police's document management requirements also extends to U-Bix working towards partnering with Corporate Express to allow New Zealand Police to order toner online along with other Corporate Express stationery items via its SAP ERP system.
