CoreLogic Location Intelligence set to roll out

CoreLogic Location Intelligence set to roll out across Asia-Pacific

CoreLogic NZ Ltd is delighted to have recently received accreditation to the New Zealand Partnerships for International Development Fund (Partnerships Fund) with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT).

The Partnerships Fund is a contestable fund available for New Zealand-based organisations to develop and deliver locally owned responses to development challenges in countries as identified in the New Zealand Aid Programme Strategic Plan. The core focus is on sustainable economic development in the Pacific, with MFAT allocating funding to partners for approved strategic projects throughout the Pacific, and in some Asian and African countries. CoreLogic’s accreditation is for a three year period and is the first due diligence requirement towards obtaining Partnerships Fund funding.

This accreditation follows the recent success of CoreLogic’s VanuaGIS system, developed for the Fijian Ministry of Lands. Providing geospatial mapping of the country, VanuaGIS proved its worth when in February of 2016 Tropical Cyclone Winston struck Fiji. The government used the system to provide centralised support to the relief effort by mapping the location and resources of disaster response teams across the islands. CoreLogic expects to leverage the work done with VanuaGIS for the benefit of other Pacific Island countries.

CoreLogic Head of Location Business Intelligence, Sarah Kinley, says “CoreLogic is working on a concept for submission in the next MFAT funding round in March 2017. This concept will align with MFAT strategic objectives and build on CoreLogic’s proven location business intelligence expertise, as well as our experiences in Fiji. We see this as a unique proposition and opportunity to deliver effective projects throughout Asia Pacific that will support long term economic development and resilience.”

Ms. Kinley continued, “CoreLogic feels privileged to be given the opportunity to work with MFAT to help execute its strategic goals in the Pacific.”
