​ICONZ-Webvisions goes back to Kiwi ISP roots with name change

“The ICONZ brand has 20 plus years of goodwill behind it."

ICONZ-Webvisions has announced that it will operate in New Zealand as ICONZ, effective from September 1, 2015.

As one of New Zealand’s first Internet Service Providers, the company founded in 1992 as the Internet Company of New Zealand, before beginning trading as ICONZ shortly after.

According to the growing Kiwi company, this name change shows that the business is “going back to its origins.”

“The ICONZ brand has 20 plus years of goodwill behind it,” says Jack Talbot, General Manager, ICONZ. “It’s what many of our customers, our suppliers and even our staff colloquially call the company.

“Reverting our operations back to ICONZ, shows our focus and dedication to our NZ-based business.

“ICONZ started as one of New Zealand’s very first ISPs. We brought innovative internet solutions to kiwis before most had even heard of the internet. Under ICONZ, we intend to keep launching new innovations to our core business audience.”

Talbot says the company’s change back to ICONZ also coincides with the launch of its new website.

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.
