Dimension Data has announced a new regional office location in Dunedin, following the organisation’s recent contract wins with the University of Otago and PGG Wrightson.
“The opening of the Dunedin office demonstrates our commitment to our clients, as well as our desire to play a key role as part of Dunedin’s ICT provider community," says Dimension Data CEO Simon Gillespie. “Dunedin is a vibrant, bustling economy and we’re excited about investing in the area. The new office will support the growth in our business, and more importantly, offer better support for our Dunedin clients. Dimension Data’s contracts with the University of Otago and PGG Wrightson are pivotal wins for us, and these have enabled us to open this office and provide employment for eight staff in the region, half of whom have been sourced locally," he adds.
The University of Otago chose Dimension Data as its preferred Network Services Partner for the transformation of its multi-campus LAN and Wireless network, which includes a five-year support agreement.
“This world-class university is an integral aspect of Otago’s culture and demographic, and we are proud to be involved in this programme and share its vision for modernising its network and providing a seamless, connected experience for students and staff on campus. We’re also pleased to be offering an internship to one University of Otago student,” says the CEO.
PGG Wrightson appointed Dimension Data to provide advanced Unified Communications services.
The new office, located at 414 Moray Place, was officially opened last night by Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull, in a ceremony attended by Dimension Data employees, vendors and partners.
