Whānau Tahi breaks into US market
Monday 25th September 2017 - Waipareira owned IT company Whānau Tahi has announced a strategic partnership with Alaskan Native-owned Arctic Information Technology, Inc. (Arctic IT) that will deliver critical technology and connected services to tribal organisations throughout North America.
Arctic IT will implement the Whānau Tahi Navigator, a Microsoft Dynamics 365-based application designed to serve “Family First.” This solution complements the Arctic IT Tribal Platforms™ Enrollment program being used by many tribes today. The technology can be deployed on premise or in the Microsoft Government Cloud, providing the customer the power of choice, additional security, and a platform that evolves with the needs of the tribe.
“The Tribal Platforms and Whānau Tahi Navigator software solution provides an unmatched ability to capture data, metrics, and analysis on efficacy, while providing deeper level of social engagement for tribal communities and their families,” said Dave Bailey, Arctic IT’s Chief Technology Officer.
“Tribes now have a purpose built, cost effective solution that can adapt rapidly to change.”
Both firms have been actively involved in the “Tiwahe” initiative - a joint-program funded by the Department of Interior and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The word “Tiwahe” is a Lakota word for “family” or “household.”
This a pilot program aimed at empowering native families and providing successful foundations for youth to achieve more.
“We designed the solution to connect family service providers, and funding agencies to empower family-centric care for transformative and generational change,” said Stephen Keung, Whanau Tahi’s President & CEO, North America.
“With Arctic IT’s technical and tribal experience and the practice leadership we have grown within our Whānau Tahi Navigator solution, we are excited to go to market here in the U.S. and promote positive outcomes for individuals, families, and communities.”
