Software design, building and integration firm Fronde has undertaken significant projects for New Zealand public sector organisations, developing systems such as an electronic biosecurity clearance solution for MAF, and the award winning, web-based e-admin programme ENROL for the Ministry of Education that is expected to save the Ministry up to $2 million each year.
As Google’s preferred enterprise partner for New Zealand, Fronde completed a roll out of Google Applications into NZ Post, which realised costs savings and additionally created a more collaborative and efficient working environment. It has also built a mobile commerce payments service, TXT-a-park and the successful delivery of cloud computing projects since 2006.
“Increasingly, Fronde sees large cloud computing engagements as an extension of our core software development and integration business; and to this end, Fronde are developing strategic partnerships with market leaders such as Google, Salesforce.com and Microsoft,” says CEO Ian Clarke.
