Here are some of the organisations that we’ve helped…


Probity managed the procurement of a new ERP application. Reduced procurement and implementation risk by ensuring systems fit with the business needs and negotiating a contract that reduced financial risk. Probity was engaged to assist with the implementation which was successfully delivered in June 2016.




Probity completed a comprehensive review of Victoria University of Wellington’s payroll function.  The review was commissioned to assist the university to make efficiency improvements.  We made a number of recommendations for efficiency improvements that covered systems, reporting, stakeholder interaction and communication as well as policy and procedure.  The University took Probity’s recommendations and embarked on a programme of improvement projects.




CRM implementation – we undertook an initial scoping review and provided options for the CRM requirements together with a roadmap for delivery.  We identified a number of business risks and outlined potential benefits of implementing a new version of the CRM and extending its use to the whole organisation.  This resulted in UCOL being able to manage contact information better, gather and interpret information about students, stakeholders etc. and manage client relationship information.
