Solutions provider reports 156 per cent increase

Objective Corporation released its half-year financial report that shows an increase in after tax profits of 156 per cent on the same period last year.

The content, collaboration and process management solutions provider reported a net profit after tax of $2.1 million in the half-year to December 31, 2013. This figure was a dramatic increase from $800,000 in the previous corresponding period.

Objective’s client base exists mainly but not exclusively within the public sector. It has clients at the federal, state and local government level in Australia and New Zealand. Its clients include the Australian Department of Defence, the ACT Planning and Land Authority, and Auckland Regional Council.

Objective Corporation CEO, Tony Walls, attributed the increase to significant demand for the company’s portfolio of solutions in all levels of government, and from port authorities.

“Increasingly, Objective is being recognised for its achievements in the marketplace and we are seeing sustained demand from customers who are replacing competitor systems with Objective’s next generation solutions.”

Walls described Objective as “the solution of choice for the Australian ports market”, and pointed to the recent agreement with the Geraldton Port Authority as evidence of this. Objective also lists the Newcastle Port Corporation and the port of Brisbane as some of its major clients.

The company reported an increase in revenue of 14 per cent from the first half of 2013, to 21.7 million up from $19 million. This includes increases in Asia-Pacific of 14 percent and 20 per cent in Europe.

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.
