New Zealand school property implements Tribal asset management system

Last updated: 23/10/2017

The Ministry of Education in New Zealand has implemented Tribal’s facilities and asset management solution, K2, to manage the country’s school property portfolio.

The K2 solution will provide the Ministry with an effective tool which will help them manage more than 2,300 school properties, valued at around NZ$25 billion.

K2 has been integrated with a number of other business systems within the Ministry, and will become the single source of government record for all school property data.

This information supports maintenance of national assets, planning for improved quality of these assets, and for effective financial processing.

Benefits of the K2 system include:

Improved access to reliable and up-to-date information
Improved coordination of project scope, funding and timing
Improved delivery of property plans and programmes
Increased compliance with New Zealand asset management levels and standards

Tribal K2 project manager Edward Turner says the project has successfully met several critical milestones, including the initial system roll-out in April, additional components enabled in June, and further additional features to be released later this year.

Go-live marked a huge landmark for Tribal, the project and the New Zealand Ministry of Education,

he says.

It is the foundation stone upon which future deliveries will be built, and there are plenty of opportunities to grow the system and to provide even greater benefits to the Ministry.
