Last week, we became the proud winner of the ‘Best Technology Solution for the Public Sector’ in 2016 NZ Hi-Tech Awards, for our work with the Department of Internal Affairs on the Common Web Platform (CWP). This is one of the most sought-after accolades awarded to the most successful high-tech companies in New Zealand, and we are very excited to be recognised in this category.
“It's an honour to recognised by the Hi-Tech Awards for our work in the public sector. The Common Web Platform has been a great collaboration with the Department of Internal Affairs,” said Sam Minnée, CEO and Co-Founder of SilverStripe. “For us, the opportunity to provide the whole public sector better digital tools is ultimately an opportunity to help New Zealanders get better public services”.
We are known for our open source Content Management System and Agile software development prowess, but what we strive to do is help our clients accelerate their Digital Transformation in the public sector, as well as banking, telecommunications and utilities, through using our tools and processes to enable speed of delivery. The past year has seen us expand our activities in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Europe and the United States. We opened an office in London and our Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings, the Common Web Platform and SilverStripe Platform, have experienced significant growth.
“We're never finished. We've got a hundred ideas for ways we could improve, but it's great to be recognised for the work we've done so far,” said Sam Minnée.
