Some of the key areas that were driving Empired’s growth included: managed services, IoT and data insights; mobility; Microsoft CRM and ERP; digital transformation; Cloud transformation services, service integration; and identity management and security.

During FY15, Empired focused on developing its Auckland market presence and spots opportunities to provide trans-Tasman services.

Revenue was broken up by region showing 33 per cent came from the West Coast, 31 per cent from East Coast, 30 per cent from New Zealand and six per cent from USA.
