Fujitsu has opened a new purpose-built office in Sydney to act as its regional headquarters.

Located at 118 Talavera Road in Macquarie Park technology hub, the 9400 square metre office will house 850 of the technology vendor’s Sydney-based staff.

Fujitsu A/NZ CEO and executive director, Mike Foster, said the five floor location will improve collaboration between teams.

“This move will benefit our people, customers and the business,” he said.

The new office features wireless and collaboration technologies, “Follow Me” printing capability that allows printing from any printer in the building; and “soft phone” technology in lieu of separate telephones on desks.

Foster said the technological improvements, as well as the five star Green Star rating of the building, shows Fujitsu’s consideration for waste output and energy consumption.

“By incorporating the latest tools and ideas in our own workplace, we are also able to showcase our commitment to sustainability, a key value of our organisation,” he said.

The new office was officially opened by NSW Minister for Finance and Services, Dominic Perrottet, in the presence of Fujitsu global corporate head, Masami Fujita, and Consul General of Japan - Sydney, Masato Takaoka.

In reference to Fujitsu’s Japanese roots, a traditional Japanese Kagami-biraki sake ceremony was held to instil harmony and good fortune.

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.
