Cisco has doubled the prize package for its third annual Communications Makeover competition. .
Companies can win up to $100,000 worth of Cisco Smart Small Business Pro offerings. Local businesses are offered the chance to change the way they operate through the use of collaboration technologies
“New Zealand is a country of small-to-medium businesses,” says Cisco New Zealand managing director Geoff Lawrie.
“Many of those businesses already punch well above their weight with the commercial success they achieve from the size and resourcing of their business, but their growth can be hampered by inefficient, out-dated or overloaded communications infrastructure.
Dynaflow NZ won the competition last year. Director Scott Clarke says the video and web conferencing has brought reductions in its telephony and travel costs.
The competition is open to all local businesses with between 20 and 100 employees. Entries will be assessed by a Cisco-led panel with external expertise being offered by NZICT Group CEO Brett O’Riley
Applicants need to write 60 words describing how winning the Cisco IT Makeover would enhance their business and help it grow.
The closing date for entries is Sunday May 28 with the winner announced on Wednesday, June 2.
