Cisco NZ growth near 10 percent

Cisco’s local business recorded growth "in the high single digits" in the company’s latest financial year that ended last July, according to country manager Geoff Lawrie.

Lawrie says the New Zealand business grew better than many of its overseas counterparts during the period, adding growth here has continued at a “relatively constant” rate in the past couple of years.

“We have never worked as hard at our business and been as busy in our business as we were last year,” says Lawrie. “It was a very hard year last year. We got good results but we had to make sure had good offerings in front of the market.”

He adds Cisco has achieved good performance locally in the first six months of the new financial year.

“There have been some lumpy deals that have helped that but the majority of our growth has come from portfolio expansion and Tandberg is a perfect example of that,” he says, adding Cisco has extended its wireless offerings and is doing more in the digital signage space.

Cisco acquired acquired Tandberg last April, and Lawrie says the integration has taken about a year to complete.

“It was a very busy year of product integration, strategy alignment, people integration, and channel and distribution alignment,” says Lawrie.
