Over 12 years, the mobility project will help New Zealand Police save NZ$300 million.

“Mobile Responder allowsNew Zealand field officers to use smartphones to access critical information required for more informed decision-making,” said Steven Cost, president, Intergraph Security, Government and Infrastructure (SG&I). “Through this program, Hexagon recognizes this forward-thinking agency and its efforts to improve the safety of field personnel and the public.”

Named for Hexagon’s commitment to positively altering the course of change with solutions that help make a difference in the lives of people around the world, the Shaping Change Recognition Programme is designed to invoke a spirit of partnership and impact.
