TAURANGA-based Cucumber Software has gone from having little direction to being on the cusp of success.

Having spent the last nine months on product development, Cucumber is ready to take its document management and content management systems to the small and medium enterprise (SME) market. And it’s looking for resellers to come onboard.

General manager Jodie Tipping says her company made the decision last year to focus on SMEs and chose to release smaller, modular systems that don’t require a huge one-off investment.

“We don’t want to turn SMEs away from having the ability to use world-class technology. I don’t want to sell something our customers don’t immediately feel the benefit from,” she says.

Although Cucumber will continue to sell to its key clients, Tipping says she would love to have resellers as part of the team.

“We’re planning to take this offshore and are currently talking to a few design companies in the US and UK, so it would be great if New Zealand resellers were to take advantage of this market.”

Cucumber’s clients include Panasonic NZ, Comvita and Design Mobel.

Earlier this year the document management system was selected by the Bay of Plenty District Health Board for use on Tauranga Hospital’s $110 million construction and refurbishment project.

Tipping says the hospital was looking for a secure system to store and retrieve thousands of documents generated by staff and consultants across Australasia.

“They wanted a system that could house documents, irrespective of what application they were created in, which could be shared among internal and external team members.”

Cucumber systems designer and developer Andy Walker says the system needed to be powerful yet simple to use.

“Many of the staff using the system aren’t highly IT literate so we had to keep it uncomplicated,” he says.

On the content management side, Walker says it’s simple enough for a web developer to configure and doesn’t require software development.

“It puts it in the hands of graphics web developers and allows users to exploit the potential of the internet rather than paying lip service.”
