“Palmerston North City Council has engaged CORUM on a number of assignments over the past year, principally to support the development of our Information Management Strategic Plan and associated systems and processes. CORUM has become a true trusted partner.  They have been reliable with their delivery – managing to agreed budgets and producing quality outputs.  More importantly, they have delivered strategic value to our organisation by helping us develop a more strategic view of our information management environment. We have found their team to be excellent to work with.  They have a collaborative and engaging approach and we have always come away feeling like our needs were front of mind. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations.”

“I have enjoyed working with CORUM since joining Heritage Lifecare in 2019. The team at CORUM were providing a virtual CIO service to Heritage at the time to maintain continuity of IT services during a transition period. This was very helpful and successfully filled a gap in capability for a limited period of time.
CORUM have also provided IT staff to assist with the operational support of technology and this has worked very well. I see them as a valued partner and have found Chris, Richard, and Janine always willing and able to deal with any small issues that may arise. They are flexible and responsive, and take the time to understand our business”.
