​NZ tech firms merge following telco collapse

“NZTG is enthusiastic about the opportunity to partner with RS Comms to provide a strong solution to the unfortunate situation left by Intagr8."

New Zealand Technology Group (NZTG) has entered into a strategic partnership with RS Comms, merging its operations into NZTG to provide sales support and telecommunications services to small and mid-sized businesses.

RS Comms was formed in 2015 after purchasing the collapsed Auckland-based telco Intagr8, with the merger now set to provide service solutions to businesses caught up in the aftermath of the failed provider.

As a nationwide IT and telco solutions provider with more than 10,000 business customers throughout New Zealand, the new-look NZTG aims to leverage its ICT expertise, services and customer support to offer a range of telco options for the SMB community.

“NZTG is enthusiastic about the opportunity to partner with RS Comms to provide a strong solution to the unfortunate situation left by Intagr8,” says Dwayne Smith, founder, NZTG.

“We are unable to do anything about the legacy issues around the potentially questionable contracts held by Intagr8, but we can support New Zealand businesses that still need reliable, reputable internet and telecommunications services in order to operate and thrive.

“The new partnership also reinforces our long term vision to partner with promising companies.”

Smith says that NZTG made contact with the Intagr8 liquidators, Waterstone Insolvency, in December, shortly before the assets were sold to RS Comms, owned by Auckland businessman David Rouse.

Following discussions, around 15 former Intagr8 staff have been retained, all from customer service, finance and provisioning areas.

“We then entered into dialogue with David and decided we could potentially work together to provide competitive, workable solutions to any of the businesses effected by Intagr8’s collapse,” Smith adds.

Smith says NZTG and RS Comms staff are contacting previous Intagr8 clients to introduce the new partnership and outline potential service options as a new supplier.

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.
