Nine managed service providers claiming around 9000 small to medium business customers have joined forces.

The group has formed a company called New Zealand Technology Group Services, trading as One Technology, to form what they describe as New Zealand’s largest collaboration of business data and managed service providers.

One Technology consists of Horizon Pacific, Highfield Solutions, Mint Technology, One Communications, Strategic IT, Swift Technology, The Computer Centre, Technologix, and Wasp. 

The websites of constituent companies were yesterday splashed with a redirect announcing the new branding and the over-arching new entity (see below).

One Technology said the aim was to bridge the divide between the internet service provider and IT and to end frustrating and costly finger pointing between the two when something goes wrong.

“We believe the synergy achieved through offering end-to-end support with one throat-to-choke is going to allow New Zealand small business owners to get some sleep at night – or at the least it won’t be their IT keeping them awake," said Jacob Philp, product and services manager for One Technology.

The pace of merger activity in the MSP market appears to have quickened, with Auckland-based Base 2 announcing it was buying Ginger IT late last week.

Another MSP, Think Concepts, was bought from founder Hadleigh Bognuda by the company's manegement team last month.  

Reseller News understands more mergers and deals are looming.

With a helpdesk based in Napier, One Technology boasts a national reach in field services and support through partner company Need a Nerd.

The Hawke's Bay-based Need a Nerd franchise business merged with NZ Technology Group in 2017.

The merger also strengthens the products and services portfolio by bringing business connectivity, productivity tools, server management, cloud communications, disaster recovery, consultancy and procurement under a single umbrella, One Technology said.

Backed up by New Zealand Technology Group, One Technology said it anticipated further expansion into additional territories in 2020.
