1,350 avocado growers throughout New Zealand use Centrify to access apps and tools essential for orchard management. Centrify provides secure, easily tracked, single sign-on access to all user accounts through confidential, unshared passwords.
"Centrify single sign-on has simplified access to online services for growers and enabled us to implement a cultural change toward best practices and stronger security as we build new apps and strengthen our partnerships. Centrify was the right choice."
Midge Munro, Communications Manager for NZ Avocado
CENTRIFY IDENTITY SERVICE CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT
New Zealand Avocado Growers’ Association is the public face of the $130 million New Zealand avocado industry, created to promote the sale and consumption of avocados. As a non-profit, NZ Avocado manages research and development programs, coordinates and disseminates industry information, lobbies and liaises with government officials and provides a structure to foster growth across the industry.
Designed to act as a portal for growers, packers, exporters and local marketers, the NZ Avocado system provides access to highly-specialized apps including Spray Diary to log essential information about growing activities, as well as an AvoTools app and associated websites used to ensure compliance to international regulations.
Provide single sign-on access to an array of apps and tools critical to orchard owners.
Minimize password reset requests.
“With NZ Avocado’s limited IT capabilities, we knew this wouldn’t be a typical corporate single sign-on implementation. And we were going to try to manage old, outdated legacy apps with a very modern web-based solution. We expected a generation gap, but we’ve been very pleasantly surprised at the ease with which Centrify has crossed that gap to deliver an SSO solution across every app and site we needed it to,” said Midge Munro, Communications Manager at NZ Avocado.
NZ Avocado selected Centrify due to its feature set, its ability to reduce system load and incorporate legacy apps, and its ability to provide security at a reasonable cost. NZ Avocado has now implemented widely accepted security practices. Passwords are confidential, password sharing has been eliminated and user access is trackable.
