David Irving, chief executive of Changepoint's New Zealand and Australian distributor, Synergy International, said today that the principal benefit of Changepoint's PSA solution was its ability to manage the entire IT services delivery process effectively. "ACC's acquisition of Changepoint is an indicator of the growing recognition of the benefits of professional services automation," Mr Irving said. "The software automates and streamlines the business processes of corporate IT departments and IT professional services organisations.

These include: injury prevention initiatives, case management and rehabilitation services as well as managing relationships with health professionals throughout New Zealand. "This requires a complex set of IT relationships and services and Changepoint will enable these to be managed more effectively." Changepoint Corporation, headquartered in Canada with offices in the USA and United Kingdom, provides comprehensive professional services automation solutions to manage the entire IT services delivery process.

It specialises in the delivery of total business-related information technology solutions. It has exclusive distribution rights for Changepoint in New Zealand and is a distributor in Australia.
