HP flatting with Microsoft

Hewlett Packard (HP) and Microsoft are housemates following HP’s move into its new premises in Auckland's mini-Silicon Valley. HP takes residence on two floors of the building at 22 The Viaduct, moving closer to both Microsoft and Vodafone.

The move brings together in a single building old HP staff and those who joined the company when HP acquired consulting firm CGNZ almost a year ago.

Keith Watson, managing director of HP New Zealand, says the move is all positive and went without a hitch. “We moved the company from about 5000 square feet to about 3500, and bringing the two teams together is great for us. The location is not the only change; we’ve completely revamped the way we’ll do business, with an increased focus on mobility.”

“Flatting with Microsoft is fantastic,” says Watson. “The move allows us to work much more closely with our partners. We’re also developing a bigger customer space, with a showroom we can showcase our technology in.”

HP says it has reduced real estate costs by 40% and reduced on-site storage by 75%.
