Oceania Group chooses PeoplePoint‘s end-to-end aged care management solution.
AUCKLAND, SYDNEY, ATLANTA , June 11, 2010 — CDC Software Corporation (NASDAQ: CDCS), a global provider of hybrid enterprise software applications and services, today announced it will implement its PeoplePoint aged care solution at Oceania Group, one of New Zealand's largest care providers with a nationwide network of senior living facilities.
Oceania Group chose PeoplePoint, an end-to-end age care management solution based on Microsoft Dynamics AX , after an extensive analysis and due diligence.
“This is a fantastic win-win and represents our first aged care customer in New Zealand,” said Frank Hung, Managing Director of CDC Software Australia, “PeoplePoint is successful in the Australian market where we have a large base of clients and we’re very excited to be implementing the solution in New Zealand for Oceania.
“The development philosophy behind PeoplePoint was always to extend its reach into New Zealand and the broader international market place. Working in partnership, CDC Software’s PeoplePoint business and Oceania Group, will embed a range of enhancements into the software to reflect local New Zealand compliance and focus,” Mr Hung said.
Oceania Group offers a fully integrated service and complete continuum of care for the elderly across New Zealand; from independent living in a private apartment, villa or townhouse, to rest home, respite and palliative care. Matthew Ward, Chief Financial Officer of Oceania Group said, “The PeoplePoint implementation is a strategic project for Oceania Group since it is a long-term solution that supports the full care life-cycle using a single health record.
“We needed a single solution that would simplify the administration that surrounds aged care management and eliminate duplicates across our organisation. We believe the single database, single health care record and integrated functionality of PeoplePoint will achieve this.”
The project will commence with the implementation of the Resident Management and Finance application which will support Oceania Group’s expansive Retirement Village operations. Second phases of the planned three year project will include the roll out of Clinical Care and Project Plans.
“There is going to be localisation needed to support our New Zealand clinical standards and to meet our NZ Ministry of Health legislation,” said Mr Ward. “I see this as an opportunity for us to get the best of what the PeoplePoint solution and the Microsoft infrastructure has to offer and to meet our exact operational requirements at the same time,” he said.
