Quotes

John Foran, Public Safety Minister and Solicitor General, Government of New Brunswick:"The Government of New Brunswick will spend $7 million during the next three years to modernize the Department of Public Safety's motor vehicle program. The new [legacy-migration project with Fujitsu] is the foundation for making the motor vehicle program more effective, improving the safety and security of our residents. The project will also help us continue our work toward highway safety by giving us faster access to information on unsafe commercial vehicles, as well as vehicles from other jurisdictions that have been branded as unsafe and even vehicles used in organized crime circles."

Bob Farrow, Vice President Public Sector, Fujitsu America:"Fujitsu America has made a substantial investment in the success of its public sector initiatives, particularly in government, as evidenced by a 22 percent compound annual growth rate over the last five years. I am pleased to take the lead as Fujitsu expands its government solutions to include a full spectrum of hardware, software and IT infrastructure and security services, as well as integration solutions with our alliance partners such as Microsoft, Oracle and SAP."
