Civica launches Community Protection division in ANZ

Melbourne, Australia, 29 November, 2016: Civica, one of the leading global suppliers of software applications, digital solutions and outsourcing services for the public sector, has announced the launch of a dedicated business unit offering specialist software and services for organisations involved in community protection across Australia and New Zealand

The solutions to be offered will build on Civica’s well established global products & services capabilities, localised for the ANZ market and will add to Civica’s substantial presence in the region.

The expansion is a result of the growing opportunity for Community Protection solutions in ANZ. The new unit will be based in Melbourne under the management of Ian Kirby, previously Chief Operating Officer at Propel Partnerships, a managed services provider specialising in Public Sector Strategic Services Partnerships.

Richard Fiddis, Managing Director Civica International, based in Australia, said:

“We are extremely excited to expand our ANZ operations in an area where we have strong global credentials. State and Local Government organisations are having to deal with increasing legislative and technological change in the area of community protection. The launch of this new business unit is in line with our local investment strategy and commitment to broaden our capabilities for State and Local Government, where Civica is already well established.”

Civica recently announced the successful award of a contract to implement a replacement enforcement management system for the State of Victoria. The contract is worth an initial A$103.6m for the provision of an integrated Infringements Enforcement and Warrants management system (VIEW) with ongoing support for an initial 8 years.

Civica Group provides a wide range of software applications and digital solutions focused on public and environmental protection, which span local regulatory, land and property and civil enforcement services together with law enforcement and emergency services. In community protection Civica works with more than 300 local authorities, blue light organisations and government agencies globally to help safeguard people and places, and to deliver efficient regulatory, enforcement and community safety services.
