Wynyard Crime fighting software firm signs deal with ThailandCrime fighting software-maker Wynyard Group which develops software to help fight crime and corruption, has made further inroads in Thailand. The country's customs service selected the NZX-listed company's products to help stop drug trafficking.

Wynyard's shares moved up by 8.57 per cent this morning to $l. 14 with the arrival of the news.

Craig Richardson, Wynyard Group managing director said technology was becoming more important in the fight against drug trafficking in that part of the world.

He said, "Wynyard's technology helps a number of agencies fight crime in South East Asia and we are delighted the Thai Customs Department has chosen Wynyard to help it combat drug trafficking in the region.

"The Government's comprehensive anti-drug strategy embraces the use of technology and increased coordination across agencies and with neighbouring countries, which we strongly support. He added.

Mr. Paisal Chuenjit, Deputy Director General of Thai Customs, said Wynyard's investigative case management software is already being used successfully by Thailand's Trans National Crime Coordination Centre. With the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service gifting the software to the Thai Customs Department, it will extend the capability of the Thai Customs Department front-line operatives identify and act on critical information faster.
