Growing New Zealand technology firm Computer Concepts Limited has been crowned Professional Service Medium/Large Enterprise winners at the Champion Canterbury Awards, flying the flag for enterprise innovation across the South Island.

The Champion Canterbury Business Awards recognise and celebrate the excellence, innovation, and success of businesses and charities in the Canterbury region and are seen as some of the New Zealand’s most prestigious business awards.

“We were genuinely surprised and very humbled by the win,” says Darryl Swann, Founder and managing director, CCL.

“I started this business 25 years ago; We have built a name for ourselves by being good at what we do and most importantly passionate about our customers.

“I can’t really believe that here we are being celebrated as champions. We now have over 200 staff, and I’m really proud to say that every one of them still share the same passion and pride that we built this place on originally.”

Echoing Swann’s comments, CEO Andrew Allan says the tech specialists - who are also finalists in the inaugural 2015 Reseller News ICT Industry Awards - hadn’t expected to take the top honours, and were “excited just to be a finalist.”

“The other finalists are real Christchurch success stories, delivering innovation and inspiring company cultures; to be alongside them is an amazing achievement for the CCL team,” he adds.

“Taking out the award is one for our amazing team to take pride in, it’s their award, earned off the back of their determination and talent. We’ll certainly be celebrating this with the team.”

For Allan, the last few years have brought significant growth and expansion for CCL, but with 2016 nearing, he insists “the best is yet to come.”

“There are innovations happening right now that will change how we think about business computing forever, from virtual desktops through to innovative cloud technologies, it’s certainly an exciting time and it’s amazing to see CCL at the forefront,” he adds.

“To be recognised at such prestigious awards really brings home the difference the whole team make to our customers on a daily basis.”

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

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.
