Who we are

Leading New Zealand milk supply chain management software company, Contec Group International Ltd (CGI), provides solutions trusted by dairy processors and producers around the world.

Our comprehensive, integrated suite of modules include milk transport scheduling, milk collection, milk testing and producer payment. We have a mobile app to communicate important milk quality and component results to producers in real time, and also a hauler mobile app to ensure optimal route and milk collection management.

Headquartered in Christchurch, New Zealand, we have been supporting clients to manage and grow their businesses using smart supply chain technology since 1974.

Our premier product, Madcap (Milk Analysis, Data Capture and Processing), is a flexible and reliable platform that integrates the milk supply chain and allows timely access to relevant and accurate milk quality and component results. This provides dairy processors and producers with superior business intelligence that enables them to run an easier, safer business.

Madcap is suitable for any size dairy company, from the smallest to the largest multinational. It is used by some of the world’s largest dairy companies. The Madcap solution and its apps are currently in use in 20 countries, with an implementation schedule for 31 countries. Madcap’s unique structural design gives it the flexibility to be deployed internationally.

Our History

CGI was initially established as a technology-based systems company with two separate divisions; electronics and software. Due to the increasing demand for our software applications, we opted to focus solely on developing complete software solutions.

Contec produced the first version of Madcap in 1974 on request of the New Zealand dairy industry. Madcap I offered automated testing of milk with results collection and storage, collection data, manual data entry of quality results, printing of supplier tickets and the creation of information to be sent to the New Zealand Dairy Board’s supplier payments system.

As technology has advanced Madcap has been redeveloped to keep pace with the fast-moving dairy industry. It is now in its 6th revision. Its success is largely due to our exceptional people, who have developed Madcap over many years with input from our valued customers throughout the Australasian, and now the world’s, dairy industry.

As result, Madcap became Australasia’s industry standard for milk supply chain management and it’s now expanding internationally at a steady pace. It services almost all major dairy product manufacturing companies and independent milk laboratories in Australia and New Zealand. Madcap is currently used by some of the world’s largest dairy companies, who supply a large proportion of the tradable dairy products on the international market.
