“New Zealand presents a number of business opportunities for Sage, and I’m excited at the prospect of bringing our proven products and solutions to the New Zealand market."

Sage Business Solutions, a global provider of business management software, has today announced that Justin Robbins has been appointed to the role of New Zealand Country Manager.

Robbins comes to the role following six years as a Strategic Sales Director for Sage in South Africa.

In his new role, Robbins will be responsible for the development and operations of Sage Business Solutions in New Zealand, through client acquisition and optimising customer satisfaction with the Sage ERP X3, Sage 300 ERP, Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate and Sage CRM product suite.

“We are thrilled to have Justin leading our New Zealand operation,” says Mike Lorge, Managing Director, Sage Business Solutions.

“There are a number of similarities between the South Africa and New Zealand operations, not least being the strong innovation mindset of both countries.

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.
