Enterprise Information Management

Enterprise Information Management (EIM) is an integrative discipline for structuring, describing and governing information assets across organisational and technological boundaries to improve efficiency, promote transparency and enable business insight (Source: Gartner).

KMD, an NEC Company, develops IT solutions designed to meet every aspect of the changing digital needs of modern societies and organisations. Included in their portfolio of solutions is KMD WorkZone – an Enterprise Information Workflow solution that we are pleased to bring to the New Zealand market.

What is KMD WorkZone?

KMD WorkZone offers the functionality to cover organisation’s need for knowledge sharing, knowledge management systems, case management, calendar management, meeting and archiving of e-mails as well as general secretarial tasks.

WorkZone makes it possible to collect and store all communication with citizens, customers, and businesses, including letters, forms, telephone notes, emails, meeting minutes, pictures, sound and video files in one system.

Who we work with

Sometimes referred to as a case management solution, KMD WorkZone has been widely deployed in Denmark where several major public institutions have implemented the solution including Copenhagen Regional Government, Danish Defence, Danish Customs and Tax Administration and the Ministry of Environment.

Here in New Zealand, this is a new solution to the market and at this stage, however we expect interest from the following sectors:

Public Sector

Who are KMD?

KMD mainly provides software and IT services in Denmark through business models that generate profit continuously on a recurring basis, such as software as a service (SaaS) offerings. Specifically, KMD has a strong customer base among central and local governments and has a wide variety of software for supporting the digitisation of Denmark. In addition, KMD has a successful track record of executing strategic M&A which has broadened its service offering in a number of key verticals.

NEC acquired KMD, the largest Danish IT company in December 2018, seeing the acquisition as a good match with its strategic ambitions within the public sector. KMD has solid experience and a strong portfolio of software in this market segment. NEC technology and KMD software have many synergistic opportunities and both parties are benefitting from the exchange and integration of products, know-how and competencies.
