Simpl strikes deal with Primavera

SIMPL has added another project management software vendor to its ranks.

The Auckland-based consulting and IT services firm has been appointed as the sole distributor for Primavera, a global provider of project portfolio management software.

This comes shortly after Simpl signed up to resell project management templates developed by New Zealand startup Method 123, founded by Jason Westland, former general manager of Designer Technology, founders of Mail Marshal.

Andrew Smith, Primavera service manager at Simpl, says the range fits in well with the company’s approach to help customers automate their project management and raise their capability to deliver projects.

“We have been looking at project management tools for some time and looked out for the best available products in this space,” he says.

“Primavera fits well with what we advocate as a consulting organisation.”

Although Simpl is now the sole representative of the range in New Zealand, it will only sell to its own customers and will not develop a channel for the brand, says Smith.

Former Primavera representative Project Systems Solutions in New Plymouth will continue to deliver services related to the range, says Smith.

Simpl chose Primavera because it is a strong brand with a global profile, and is regarded well by analyst firms like Gartner and the Meta Group, says Smith.

He says that while several other vendors have project management tools, Primavera is dedicated to this field and continues to invest in developing the capabilities of its tools.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
