Hindin Solutions extends Ministry of Education deal

01 May 12

Christchurch-based IT company Hindin Solutions have secured a deal with the Ministry of Education to deploy its own enterprise workflow platform and application tool set across the entire education sector.

The solution, Unison, has been in place internally at the Ministry for a number of years, and will now be open to the wider education sector, having come out on top of a competitive tender process.

This could mean an expansion from 700 users to as many as 12,000, including schools and teachers as well as call centre and field workers. However, Hindin CEO Neil Fletcher says the solution’s scalability will make this process ‘straightforward’.

"The Unison platform has proven to be a really good fit for the Ministry of Education,” Fletcher says.

"Key business applications have been developed in an economic, speedy and responsive way.”

Hindin also operates an office in Wellington, and counts the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Social Development among its other government clients.
