Lateral to list on the NZAX

An initial compliance listing will be followed by a period of capital-raising to achieve $1.5 million with qualifying investors.

Lateral Corporation, providers of mobile interactive products and services, intends to list on the NZAX.

An initial compliance listing will be followed by a period of capital-raising to achieve $1.5 million with qualifying investors. The funds will be used to fund growth ambitions across several markets including Australia, the UK and USA.

According to Lateral, the two converging trends of modern smartphones equipped with HTML5 and the introduction of new generation direct carrier billing in several key markets, allow the firm to reach and transact with an increasingly large volume of consumer traffic on mobile devices and to monetise those transactions.

Lateral’s Viaduct platform, designed for the smartphone market, creates and hosts cloud based, digital products, services and applications, manages sales and distribution, and bills customers.

Lateral CEO Roger Grice said, “Rather than building a single app to distribute through the Apple or Google app stores we’re developing a digital supply chain. In the upcoming world, where apps migrate to the Cloud, we believe this is a powerful strategy. We have spent the past 5 years developing our Viaduct platform, which not only develops apps, but can host other apps, enabling us to distribute and bill for third party digital products.”

Board Chairman, Dene Biddlecombe said, “We are in a really exciting place right now. With the bulk of development completed, we are ready to get our next generation of products into the smartphone market and put a meaningful marketing budget behind them. The timing is right for Lateral to raise additional funds to accelerate these growth plans.”

The majority of Lateral’s business comes from Australia, with its mobile interactive services like OZchat.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
