By Catherine Knowles

Unisys has recognised 10 clients and partners with Lighthouse Awards at the Universe 2014 event held in Dallas.

Awards were given for vision and leadership in applying modern technologies to mission critical IT challenges, and NZ companies were in the limelight.

“We are proud to recognise the vision and innovation of these 10 recipients for the first Lighthouse Awards,” says Quincy Allen, senior vice president and chief marketing and strategy officer, Unisys. “Working with Unisys, these organisations have demonstrated true creativity in applying innovative, modern technology to solve real-world mission critical problems, with tangible benefits for their organisations and end users.”

New Zealand Transport Agency was one of the top organisations recognised. The modernised Driver and Vehicle Registry System enables flexibility to respond to legislative changes quickly and offers new online and mobile channels. The system is a primary reason for the win.

McDonald’s Australia and New Zealand was also a winner. Unisys provides service desk, on-site and remote support services to McDonald’s chains throughout Australia and New Zealand, providing point of sale services, back-office PC equipment, wireless networks and more.

Among the other top organisations were CEDAE and Elekta. CEDAE is a Brazilian water treatment and sewage utility that modernised its IT infrastructure with mobile applications. Elekta is a Swedish based company that provides clinical solutions for treating cancer and brain disorders. A recent update to its service desk includes guided self-help and automated services as well as end-user support for email, desktop and mobile applications.
