NZ Post joins the cloud

Australia and New Zealand cloud software company, PrimeQ, has won a major contract with New Zealand Post for parcel and mail monitoring and deliveries.

PrimeQ will help the NZ Post to deliver over 560 million items each year by automating its transportation and warehousing requirements through cloud-based transport management system (TMS) and warehouse management system (WMS) software from Oracle.

“New Zealand Post will be able to monitor deliveries in real time, creating a better customer experience via the Cloud,” said Andrew McAdams, PrimeQ CEO.

“PrimeQ’s installation of a state-of-the-art TMS will use the power of data to track the transportation of letters and parcels at every step of their journey and improve planning of bulk pick-ups and deliveries.

“PrimeQ is also consolidating and upgrading New Zealand Post’s WMS to better service e-commerce businesses seeking to outsource their warehousing and deliveries.”

Design work on New Zealand Post’s new TMS and WMS is now complete, with final configuration and pilot testing due to commence in the coming weeks.

“Our work with PrimeQ will contribute to improved parcel and mail deliveries across the country,” said Alan Court, General Manager – Transport and Logistics, New Zealand Post.

“It will also support the growth of New Zealand Post’s third-party logistics business, using the benefits of the Cloud.”

McAdams said PrimeQ would support New Zealand Post to become the first organisation in New Zealand to transfer a WMS into the Cloud.

“This is a major win for PrimeQ off the back of our rapid expansion in New Zealand and will create significant benefits for New Zealand Post,” he said.

“By replacing New Zealand Post’s legacy system with cloud-based Oracle solutions, PrimeQ can offer lower capital costs and rapid implementation times while creating greater delivery efficiencies.

“We will go live within six months, compared with 12 to 18 months for an on-premise system.

“Oracle has established a three-year SaaS subscription with New Zealand Post that includes technical support.”

PrimeQ is the only business in Australia and New Zealand to focus solely on Oracle cloud business solutions and services.
