Kaz develops software packages and provides outsourcing services for enterprise-level companies.
A joint partner of IBM and Cisco, Kaz has been established for 12 years. The company is currently carrying out a $54 million six-year outsourcing contract with AMP which started in 1997. Under the contract, Kaz runs AMP's superannuation mid-range operations, hardware and systems software. Kaz's list of clients also includes Colonial and Nestle.
