We’re implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system as our new core business operational tool. ERP replaces several separate legacy systems, and integrates with others, so our approach is to implement it in phases.
This allows us to start enjoying the benefits of our ERP now, while we continue with our transition journey.
The ERP system is part of our ‘New Foundations’ programme which is designed to improve our overall business processes to drive efficiencies both for us, and our contractors.
Our ERP system includes:
- Copperleaf – an investment optimisation programme designed to ensure we’re working on the right projects at the right time. (read more about Copperleaf here)
- Real time integration with our new field tool, which is what field crews use when working on our assets to see and update information about our network
- Streamlining our fault management processes by connecting our outage and fault systems
- Upgrading our safety management system
- Upgrading our billing and customer management systems
The benefit of using an ERP is streamlining how we operate. Having accurate, real-time information about our assets, and systems that ‘talk’ to each other enables our people to make the right decisions – whether in the field, when we’re planning maintenance work, or when we’re making long-term investment decisions.
The end result – a more reliable network, and better value for money for our customers.

Copperleaf goes live
Phase one launch
Phase one starts
We strive to minimise impact in the design and placement of network infrastructure and we’re still planning and consulting on the route for the new circuit. The circuit will be a mix of overhead lines – which you will see, and underground cable – which you won’t see. You’ll also see a new building at our Putaruru substation, replacing the ageing existing building there.
