Like most businesses, Meridian Energy had to manage the chaos and restrictions that COVID brought to New Zealand. But as an essential industry, there could be no slowing down of continuity of service.
Keen to maintain a business-as-usual stance (while staying COVID compliant), Meridian Energy knew they needed to act quickly. Edna Maddocks, Business Stream Lead, Markets & Corporate for Meridian Energy, says that the company knew it had to provide a way to easily and confidentially manage compliance and information related to its COVID response by developing a proprietary app.
“However, there wasn’t an off-the-shelf app available. The Government’s COVID response mandates and tools were evolving – but not quickly enough for us. So, we decided that developing and delivering a custom COVID app (My Covid) to meet our specific requirements was the best solution.”Edna Maddocks | Business Stream Lead, Markets & Corporate for Meridian Energy
