TVNZ installed an i2 e-procurement system late last year and while i2 has been the subject of a Securities and Exchange Commission probe in the US and has suffered five consecutive quarterly losses, there have been no visible effects, Andrew says.
“The support we’ve been getting hasn’t changed at all; it’s improved.”
TVNZ uses i2 for automating purchasing, and doesn’t fully utilise the vendor’s “e-side” capabilities, he says. The benefits TVNZ has been aiming for are in contract management “and making sure people use the suppliers we have contracts with”.
