Local Government Online has selected PricewaterhouseCoopers, TelstraClear, Geac, Fujitsu, BNZ and its electronic trading system provider EDIS to build its e-procurement system.
Representing New Zealand’s 86 councils, LGOL conducted a review of council systems and identified a possible saving of $50 million per annum to councils and their trading partners.
The BNZ already provides banking services to more than 50% of councils and will handle all electronic bank settlements whatever the user’s bank affiliations.
LGOL will use EDIS’ LGOL.Procure which will handle secure electronic trading with all the councils’ business partners regardless of size, system or transaction format.
BNZ EDIS is a proprietary system, which facilitates electronic trade with partners. Established in 1991, it preserves brand and logos and special trading conditions and prices between partners.
PrivewaterhouseCoopers provides integration services to facilitate the successful delivery of the EDIS e-business solution with back office financial systems.
