New Zealand Racing Board off to a flying start with G Suite
The New Zealand Racing Board (NZRB) is the organisation responsible for the administration of all racing and sports wagering in New Zealand. As such, NZRB is a major participant in an entertainment business with more than 181,000 TAB account-holders and a retail network of more than 680 outlets. It facilitates betting on more than 78,000 domestic and imported thoroughbred, harness and greyhound races each season, as well as a rapidly-growing number of domestic and international sporting events.
NZRB employs 870 people across the country, with a head office in Wellington. NZRB and strategic partner Spark chose Fronde to help implement Google Chrome devices and G Suite across the organisation to modernise and transform NZRB’s environment and reduce both risk and costs. Fronde’s proven track record with similar implementations, plus the company’s strong relationship with Google, helped NZRB get the solution in place and deliver enormous benefits.
NZRB needed to modernise its corporate environment to reduce the risk and costs associated with using out-of-date infrastructure and technology. It had been using an old version of Windows, which wasn’t a safe bet, as it was becoming costly to maintain and didn’t offer the collaboration and communication capabilities NZRB required.
