HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 02, 2014

Hexagon CEO Ola Rollen today honored New Zealand Police for its visionary use of Intergraph technology in protecting and serving the citizens of New Zealand. The presentation was made at HxGN Live in Las Vegas, Nev.

New Zealand Police, which use Intergraph’s I/CAD to protect the entire country, deployed more than 10,000 devices featuring Intergraph’s Mobile Responder to 6,500 frontline police. Mobile Responder helps New Zealand Police increase productivity by 30 minutes per shift, which saves 520,000 hours each year and effectively puts 345 more police on the streets. Over 12 years, the mobility project will help New Zealand Police save NZ$300 million.

“Mobile Responder allows New 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. It recognizes Hexagon customers or partners for their vision in the use of Hexagon technologies to make significant contributions to their business and the industries they serve. In establishing this programme, Hexagon hopes to inspire others to adopt its technology for bold, forward-thinking use.
