KAZ Group has secured a deal worth more than $4 million with the NSW Department of Mineral Resources.
Under the contract, the ASX-listed service provider will supply the department with a new Web-based electronic service delivery application and will re-engineer other key business applications.
Managing director of KAZ Technology Services, Andrew Richardson, said KAZ began developing the application in August last year. The solution would provide the department with a centralised repository of mining industry data that would enhance its current operations and provide online access to departmental information for the mining community.
KAZ is working to a tight deadline as the project must be completed before the department from the Sydney suburb of St Leonards to Maitland in the NSW Hunter Valley in October.
The new Web-based service delivery application from KAZ will allow the department to offer its services online and on CD-ROM rather than over the counter.
“It’s a big piece of work to commit to in a fixed time frame like this," Richardson said. "It’s a huge business imperative to get it right the first time.”
He said several companies bid for the tender but it was KAZ’s experience in working with both Federal and State government departments and developing and implementing similar solutions that gave it the edge.
