Innovation plays a key role in the Citycare business vision. Building on our advanced 24/7 field service technologies, Citycare has an existing strategic asset in its national view of asset data management and asset analytics. This capability provides the opportunity to deliver new and valuable asset management practices to our clients.
Citycare is wholly focused on the development and deployment of innovation to enhance the services we provide to our clients. We see that the future in this competitive market will be owned by those who practise thought leadership and innovation.
Our ability to deliver both day-to-day and on innovation were key to Citycare Property being awarded one of Auckland Council’s new five-year term, Full Facilities Maintenance contracts for the maintenance and management of all community-owned Facilities and Parks in Auckland South. When announcing the new contracts and their selected suppliers, Auckland Council emphasised that identifying innovative partners who could be relied on to deliver was a key part of its four-month-long procurement process.
The drivers for this procurement process align directly with Citycare’s business strategy, with the capacity to bundle services together and utilise innovation and technology solutions to drive efficiency and realise tangible client benefits. The size of the Auckland Council contract also gives Citycare greater scale and national presence than ever before. With Water, Property and Civil contracts in all major metro areas, Citycare Group is increasingly becoming recognised as the beating heart that consistently delivers the services that keep communities around the country functioning 24/7.
This value talks directly to another established foundation of the Citycare business: Citycare’s genuine passion and care for the communities in which we operate.
Our deep community connections continue to be showcased through a number of collaborative community initiatives up and down the country, from regeneration projects in Wellington, to Social Housing support initiatives and various volunteer events with the University of Canterbury’s Student Volunteer Army (SVA).
A significant attribute weighting related to Citycare being awarded the Auckland Council contract, talked to the capacity of the successful contractor to demonstrate workforce diversity and an investment in the communities it serves.
To this end, Citycare Group’s renewed vision builds on that strong commitment to building great communities, with an additional future-looking flavour and a re-invigorated appetite to leverage our presence and the community-integrated DNA of our people to even greater effect through:
