Technovation Direct launches Express CMS

A LOCAL technology consultancy has scored a coup by partnering with a British software company.

Swebtec, a provider of content management software in the UK, has teamed with Wellington-based Technovation Direct to launch its ExpressCMS product into Asia-Pacific.

The content management tool is designed to make management of corporate websites quick and cost-effective. Operating on all open platforms, users can build websites and add additional content without any technical training.

Technovation Direct managing director Don Staples says there is a significant need for such a system in the Asia-Pacific market with few viable solutions available.

“Now we’re able to offer a full range of knowledge management systems to our clients. This means SMEs are able to deploy highly effective websites without additional technical expertise,” he says.

Swebtec joint managing director Jamie Kruger says the company is fully committed to the needs of businesses in the region and looks forward to building on its success in the UK market.

Kruger has already visited New Zealand to demonstrate the product and further trips are planned for this year.

Staples says his company was approached by Swebtec to represent it in the region, starting in New Zealand.

“We have a reasonable number of customers in the information management field so they will be offered the product first. Having said that, we’ve been approached about doing work in Australia.”

Technovation Direct has a firm client base in government enterprise, including the Crown Law Office, Commerce Commission and Treasury, as well as the corporate legal environment.

Staples says this isn’t the first occasion he has been approached by offshore firms seeking representation.

“The problem is that there aren’t enough knowledgable companies in New Zealand to take on the products.”

Staples says that although his company develops its own products, its main business is in adding value to existing solutions.

Swebtec’s only other foray into the global market involved using XpressCMS to develop a website for the Zimbabwe Democracy Trust, a US-based group educating the world on the plight of Zimbabwean people.
