The New Zealand local government entity selected Infor for 'Project Reboot' to replace 28 disparate on-premises software systems with a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution - Infor CloudSuite Public Sector. The multi-year, multi-phase transformation program included new modules for financial management and budgeting, planning, human resources, property and rates, among others.

"Project Reboot was launched in May 2019 to replace 28 different software systems that didn't speak to each other, were ageing and costly to maintain, and required more than a band-aid fix," said Janine Becker, Director of Finance and Business Services at Waikato Regional Council.

"While a change of the scale delivered will take some time to bed into the organisation, it has allowed us to address some key business risks and will provide a technology platform and business processes that our council will continue to use and optimise over time. We are seeing some early wins from the project phases that have been progressively implemented since September 2020.

"With a project of the duration of Project Reboot, we have had the opportunity to bed in a partnership with Infor that has been effective and beneficial for both parties. We've seen the evolution of Infor's own practices over this time, which continue to work towards understanding and delivering to customer needs.

"Infor has also brought us 'into the tent' where we've been involved in their product development cycle. The ability and opportunity to be able to influence future solutions is a big bonus for our innovation program now and in the years to come," Becker said.

Infor has a solid track record as the cloud provider of choice for utilities and government agencies around the world. Apart from Waikato Regional Council, Infor is the "system of record" for the nation's water reform program and a close partner to its largest water authority, Watercare. In Australia, six water corporations are customers while leading U.S. water authority Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District is also a client.

"Project Reboot was an ambitious program to amalgamate multiple legacy systems that didn't speak to each other. It was no mean feat but we're proud Infor has successfully delivered an industry-specific, cloud-based solution that will have a tangible, positive impact on Waikato Regional Council for generations to come and one that will future-proof its investments," said Terry Smagh, senior vice president and general manager of Asia Pacific and Japan at Infor. "With Infor CloudSuite Public Sector, Waikato Regional Council can achieve continuous improvements across the organisation and enhance internal and external processes to meet business outcomes with operational excellence as a central theme."
