Innovative Telecommunications Provider Gains Governments TaaS Endorsement
Auckland, 15 February – The largest private New Zealand-owned video conferencing network provider for healthcare in Australasia, has just been awarded panel status in the latest round of the government’s Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS) endorsements. Vivid Solutions Ltd (VSL) who also service the Department of Corrections is now accredited to expand its service enabling other government agencies easier access to competitive and enhanced interconnectivity between departments and customers.
Chief Executive Simon Hayden says being listed is recognition of their ability to competitively deliver quality services, security and infrastructure to the public sector.
“Digital advances and network upgrades in telecommunications are continuously evolving,” says Hayden.
“In the next decade it is going to become crucial for government agencies to manage the integration, increased traffic and mobility of their workforce, customers and stakeholders. We are dynamic and agile which allows us to respond quickly to changes in technology and the modern needs of a government agency.”
The TaaS panel allows more than 200 government agencies to access a range of accredited cross- telecommunications and managed security services. VSL is one of a dozen IT services companies added in the panel’s latest expansion.
Born out of the need for
paediatricians at Auckland’s Starship Hospital to conduct
face-to-face video conference consultations with their young
patients throughout New Zealand, VSL has been at the
forefront of telecommunications in the health sector for
over a decade. Today all 20 District Health Boards across
the country use the company’s services, as do correctional
facilities, social support groups and not-for-profit
“Our flexibility allows us to deliver high-spec state-of-the-art bespoke solutions or standardised connectivity at the lowest possible cost,” says Hayden. “With approved TaaS status VSL can now offer its solutions directly to all government departments without having to tender, saving time and money for all parties involved. For a team of passionate people, this is a wonderful example of Government supporting a wider network of New Zealand businesses.”
