CSG, which presently provides managed print services in New Zealand under the Konica Minolta brand, has officially launched the CSG brand and its full range of IT services in New Zealand.

As a result, the business will no longer trade under the Konica Minolta brand but said the partnership will continue at a local level.

"Print is still a very important part of our business and Konica Minolta will continue to be one of the main brands of devices we offer to the market," CSG managing director and CEO Julie-Ann Kerin said.

"Our customers will continue to receive the high level of quality service they experience today, which will continue to be delivered by our existing teams.

"Nothing will change from that perspective. What does change is we now offer our customers a broader more complete set of solutions that add real value to their businesses."

CSG promises to offer “a full suite of technology as subscription solutions that help businesses maximise productivity, efficiency and reduce costs.”

Under the new CSG brand, Kerin said Kiwi customers will have access to a portfolio of subscription-based services that suitable for small to medium businesses, large enterprise and government that includes digital display, unified communications, contact centre, desktop and managed IT.

As Konica Minolta CSG employed more than 400 staff in New Zealand in 14 offices, the business has made a number of new hires to support its expanded range of offerings in New Zealand.

Paul Wilson joined the company in September as chief sales officer responsible for enterprise sales across Australia and New Zealand including the company's private cloud platform, procurement marketplace, managed print, end-user computing, cloud communications and display solutions.
