As we wind down another year, our team recently came together to celebrate the holiday season at our annual Christmas function.

We kicked the day off celebrating our collective hard work this year, followed by a scenic team stroll along the mighty Waikato River.

One of the highlights of the day was the talent show, where our team members unveiled their hidden talents. The stage came alive with soulful renditions of Māori hymns, impressive juggling acts, and festive musical performances.

The celebration continued with engaging team-building activities. A quiz tested our knowledge about New Zealand, Centrix, and each other. The highlight, undoubtedly, was the tower-building challenge, where pasta and marshmallows became the unlikely building materials. This hilarious yet challenging task put our teamwork to the test.

As the day concluded, we want to extend our gratitude to each team member for contributing to the success of this celebration.

Here’s to a successful and prosperous 2024 with our valued partners, clients and team members alike.

We are thrilled to announce Centrix’ attainment of ISO 27001 (Information Security Management Systems) and 9001 (Quality Management Systems) certifications.

This is a big milestone for us and testament to our commitment to ensuring the highest standards of information security and continuous improvement of our processes. Being certified highlights our dedication to safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data for our clients and stakeholders and solidifies our position as a reliable and secure partner for our clients.

What it means for our clients

The ISO 27001 certification not only reflects our commitment to maintaining robust information security practices internally but also provides our clients with the utmost confidence in the protection of their sensitive data. Whereas, the ISO 9001 certification highlights our unwavering commitment to meeting and exceeding client expectations.

The Benefits:

The path to certification was not a walk in the park. It required immense dedication and collaboration across all levels of our business to assess and implement robust security controls, develop comprehensive policies and procedures, and engage in continuous improvement initiatives.

We would like to extend our gratitude to each and every member whose commitment made this achievement possible.

In recent years, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has changed the way businesses automate and manage their business processes. More and more businesses are adopting RPA to make their workflows more efficient and productive.

With the help of RPA, businesses can become more profitable, flexible, and responsive. The satisfaction, engagement, and productivity of employees increase by removing monotonous tasks from their workdays.
RPA systems can be used across most industries and in various departments – basically, anywhere processes follow a fixed set of rules and are repeated in the same pattern.

The advantages include:

  • Accelerated digital transformation
  • Reduced errors
  • Cost savings
  • Increased resilience through scalability
  • Higher accuracy
  • Satisfied employees
  • Enhanced compliance

Studies show that companies can perform their business processes five to ten times faster than before thanks to RPA. Software robots have the advantage that they can work continuously, they are fast, and they do not make mistakes, unlike humans.

RPA systems can also improve compliance with regulations and guidelines, especially in industries with high compliance requirements. RPA systems can ensure that business processes and workflows remain in line with applicable regulations and guidelines. Through automation, companies can also save the time and resources typically required to verify and document compliance processes.

Another important advantage of RPA is the ability to collect and analyze data automatically. RPA systems can collect data from various sources and consolidate it to make decisions based on real-time data.
If you are considering how to automate and improve your business processes, RPA is a technology that you should definitely consider. RPA is non-invasive, can be implemented quickly, and desired effects can be recognized promptly.

We partner with the leading provider of RPA software UiPath and support our customers in developing an automation strategy and automating business processes with UiPath technologies as well as SAP iRPA.

The RPA technology is changing the way work is done today. Let us help you with your automation strategy.

When the idea of outsourcing your night-time SAP support to New Zealand may sound a bit crazy or far-fetched, the truth is that it actually makes a lot of sense.

By utilising the time difference between New Zealand and Europe, you can easily create a cost-effective solution for your night-time SAP support needs.

New Zealand is in the same time zone as much of the Asia-Pacific region, 10 -12 hours ahead of European time. This means that the local team can provide support during their daytime, without needing to stay up late or wake up early to accommodate different time zones.

Also, New Zealand also boasts an excellent infrastructure, with reliable internet connection and data centres.
But what about potential language barriers and the difference in culture and values you may ask?

With German management in Hamilton (New Zealand) and a branch in Cologne, we are a team of more than 30 employees who share the same language (most of our team speak German), culture and way of working with our partners and clients in the DACH region.

Our mission is simple. We want you to have a peaceful, uninterrupted night, no more call outs.
It is a win-win situation really. We work while you sleep.
