Crime-fighting software firm Wynyard Group has added a feather to its cap after the Serious Fraud Office chose to use the group's software in its investigations.

The Wynyard Investigator product will be used by the SFO's investigations and prosecutions teams to better manage investigations and the complex data involved.

Serious Fraud Office acting chief executive Simon McArley said SFO cases involved a large volume of information and required complex processes to analyse and organise that evidence.

"Investigators will be able to collect, organise and access SFO material through the tool to more easily piece together a case, and manage the reporting and court disclosure of that information.

"We are anticipating that in adopting specialist software to support our existing systems and processes we will improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of our investigations and prosecutions."

The product was expected to streamline the SFO's reporting and monitoring processes.

"This is a further step in implementing SFO's existing strategy of using advanced technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness," McArley said.

Wynyard Group managing director Craig Richardson said Wynyard was proud to be adding the SFO to its roster of investigations clients.

"Wynyard is now providing solutions for two of New Zealand's major investigative agencies and in the process is beginning to create the foundation for integrated crime detection and prevention across agencies."

The company listed on the NZX this month and in May secured a contract with the New Zealand police for the use of Wynyard's serious crime investigations software.

"It is pleasing to see our solutions being used not only internationally, but here at home in New Zealand," Richardson said.

Wynyard Investigator is one of a suite of tools developed by the company for threat assessment, intelligence and digital forensics.

The stock was last trading 4 cents or 3.4 per cent higher at $1.21 a share.
