UXC Oxygen delivers ERP solution to NZ government agency

UXC Oxygen delivers cloud-based ERP solution to New Zealand government agency

AUCKLAND, 06 May 2014: UXC Oxygen, the leading specialist SAP software and services company in Australia and New Zealand, is implementing an SAP Business One OnDemand solution for the Earthquake Commission (EQC) of New Zealand – one of the first cloud-based ERP solutions for a New Zealand government agency.

EQC’s Chief Financial Officer, Emma Hicks, says it selected the SAP Business One solution because it aligned directly with the Commission’s strategic criteria for the efficient management and settlement of natural disaster claims.

“SAP Business One OnDemand gives us a reliable, flexible cloud-based financial management solution. It will provide us with better financial and management reporting which in turn will improve the quality of decision making information available to senior management.”

The Earthquake Commission (EQC) provides natural disaster insurance for residential property, administers the Natural Disaster Fund, and funds research and education on natural disasters and ways of reducing their impact.

Hicks says the UXC Oxygen OnDemand solution uses the cloud to provide the Commission with virtual hardware and operating system infrastructure. “By using cloud provisioning we are able to get integrated business management software up and running for less time and cost than we would implementing an on-premise solution.”

The EQC expects the new solution to streamline its financial management activities. “It will help us to minimise errors, automate reporting and further improve spending control,” says Hicks.

UXC Oxygen CEO, Stuart Dickinson, says the SAP Business One OnDemand solution gives businesses the ability to purchase and use SAP for a per user subscription fee. “What we are doing is getting organisations up and running on SAP Business One rapidly, and delivering it via the cloud makes this possible,” says Dickinson. “The pricing is simple and transparent with payments covering software and support.”

Patrick Saundry, General Manager, UXC Oxygen SAP Business One solutions says, “As one of the first SAP approved partners to offer cloud solutions we are excited to be bringing this proven mid-market solution into the New Zealand market. We have a track record of success with SAP Business One in Australia and bring considerable domain know-how to the table across a range of industries.”

Saundry says the importance of the rebuild of Christchurch and the role SMEs have played in that rebuild are a testament to New Zealand’s resilience and strength.

“Delivering real business value with less risk and less cost is a key factor in New Zealand’s economic resurgence and that is what we want to achieve for customers.”

UXC Oxygen’s OnDemand offering provides a single, integrated solution that organisations can deploy quickly and then tailor to suit with further add-on functionality. The SAP Business One OnDemand solution is a component of the overall UXC Oxygen SAP cloud platform offering which additionally covers SAP Business All-in-One and SAP Business Objects solutions.
