​Enprise founder takes the helm of growing Cloud software firm

“I believe Datagate has huge potential to drive significant value for Enprise Group shareholders."

Enprise Group founder Mark Loveys has been appointed full time CEO of Datagate Innovation, an early-stage Cloud software development company that provides online billing and reporting portals for businesses that bill according to subscription or usage.

The Enprise Group-owned company manages the data aggregation, rating, billing and analysis of service usage, with Loveys believing the company to have an “exciting global opportunity in the massive online market.”

“I believe Datagate has huge potential to drive significant value for Enprise Group shareholders,” he says. “I will now focus all of my energy on growing Datagate.

“It has a big and exciting growth path ahead which is going to involve serving businesses, large and small, all over the world.

“The reseller channels of telco and utility companies worldwide are drowning in billing complexity and transaction volume. Datagate makes complex billing easy and inexpensive.

“It enables resellers to reduce billing cost and differentiate their offerings in what are often commodity markets. We have a compelling value proposition in the global cloud economy.”

Loveys says Datagate is already generating revenue through seven live customer sites in New Zealand, with the company’s strategy based around using the local market to establish reference sites before ramping up sales offshore.

Parent company Enprise Group has sales channels of resellers in America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom, with Loveys saying that, “Datagate can leverage these existing global channels to market.”

As a new Cloud-based Software-as-a-Service business, Loveys says Datagate requires up-front cash investment.

To raise new capital, professional investors will be allowed to invest directly in Datagate, alongside Enprise Group as fellow Datagate shareholders.

Datagate will operate as an autonomous entity, rather than a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enprise Group and to that end, Loveys will invest directly in Datagate once he gains shareholder approval and regulatory clearance to do so.

In addition, Loveys will remain on the Enprise Group board of directors as a non-executive director and will retain a significant shareholding in the company while Enprise Group will retain a significant shareholding in Datagate and a director on the Datagate board.

“I believe these changes will maximise Enprise Group's shareholder value and better fulfil the potential of each Enprise business,” Loveys adds.

“As a high-growth cloud company, we will raise direct investor capital to build Datagate through its formative years, before crossing over to profitability through its build-up of recurring SaaS revenues.”

As reported by Reseller News, Elliot Cooper replaces Mark Loveys as CEO of Enprise Group.

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.
