Making communication count
The Iwi approached Dynamo6 for a solution – and Tainui Business Development Analyst Karleen Turner Puriri says, they were more than happy with our response. Tainui now have an mobile app that helps them communicate with their people, young and old, in cities or remote rural areas.
Before working with Dynamo6, Tainui were using an older survey provider, but the technology was limiting. Karleen Turner Puriri explains: “For example, we ran a housing survey – we’d identified that our tribe was over-represented in certain areas, low in home ownership, and high in renters. We had the census statistics, but we really wanted to talk directly, to hear from them, to validate what we were thinking.” The older system also wasn’t accessible on mobile devices, which meant many younger members of the Iwi weren’t using it. If Tainui wanted to hear from the younger generation, they needed to be available on mobile. Turner Puriri says “That’s how young people communicate these days.”
Now with Dynamo6, Tainui are able to communicate with everyone in the Iwi. They have the technology to connect with members and collect detailed, personalised data. Their app is mobile-accessible, and can also be used offline to collect information in remote areas. This then syncs with the system when internet connectivity is next available.
“What I liked about them is that they came up with this amazing solution upfront, but we weren’t really ready for that. They were able to downsize it, but we’ve got the flexibility to work towards that bigger goal.”
