Somar Digital obtains Amazon Web Services partner status


Somar Digital, New Zealand’s leading citizen experience technology company, is now an AWS Select Consulting Partner and an AWS Public Sector Partner in the Amazon Web Services Partner Network.

Wellington-based Somar Digital works with government, charity and non-profit clients on solutions that help citizens access essential services. Large-scale projects include Metlink, the digital transformation of Whānau Āwhina Plunket and the NZ Mountain Safety Council’s Plan My Walk platform.

The AWS Partner Network is a global community of vendors who leverage Amazon’s web services technology. Achieving Public Sector Partner status recognizes Somar Digital’s demonstrated technical proficiency and customer success in delivering advanced citizen solutions in the AWS cloud environment. To also achieve Select Consulting Partner status, Somar Digital had to meet a wide range of technical and business training requirements.

“AWS Partners are the industry standard,” said Aaron Scott, CEO/Founder of Somar Digital. “Completing the Select Consulting Partner and Public Sector Partner programs at the same time is a tremendous achievement that reflects the hard work of our staff and our commitment to the long-term success of our clients.

“The Plan My Walk platform has over 206,000 users and requires a great customer experience at scale,” said MSC Council Chief Executive Mike Daisley. “Working with Somar Digital to harness the power of AWS has always allowed us to get the results we need. I am delighted to see Somar Digital continue to invest in capabilities that contribute to our future results. »

“At Somar Digital, we love taking on big, meaningful challenges,” said Aaron. “Whether it’s helping Kiwis return home safe after outdoor adventures, or improving the public transport experience, or supporting the health and well-being of tamariki less than five years old and their whānau, we will continue to use AWS to support the digital transformation of citizen services. ”
