Techtonics announce new Chairman and major new sales
12 February 2013
The last two months have been a busy time for Techtonics. In December, Ross Bidmead, the majority Shareholder, resumed the reins as Acting CEO. Since then, we have won two new major projects and we are planning on substantial growth this year.
In December, Techtonics won a major project to install OpenText CS10 for a new Auckland based client and in January, we won a significant document management project based around SharePoint.
This work, on top of large successful document management projects at government Ministries and steady growth in IS service to smaller customers, has positioned us well for 2013. During the year, Techtonics expect to grow the number of consulting staff by 40%, most of these for already defined projects that will commence in the first half of the year.
Ross has now handed over the day to day management of Techtonics to Trevor Hayles. Trevor has led the practice for the last two years and in that time built a loyal and stable team with a reputation for quality delivery. Over the next few weeks, Techtonics will define its new leadership structure to ensure that we are well positioned to deliver the expanding services.
Ross remains involved as Chairman, with a special interest in growing the new areas of business.

New technology paves way for greater public sector connectivity
30 August 2011
The Ministry of Economic Development is one of the first government agencies in the Asia Pacific region to adopt a new records management system, paving the way for improved links across all agencies and to the public, says supplier Techtonics.
Following a public tender process, the Ministry of Economic Development has confirmed a four-year partnership with the New Zealand company to implement and support OpenText Content Server 10, the core platform in a suite of electronic records and data management systems that allow integrated management of information and processes.
“We’re excited about this opportunity to lead the way with a cutting edge product,” says Ministry of Economic Development spokesman Simon Lawrence. “Techtonics’ solution will facilitate far better management of information and knowledge across the Ministry, and pull together a number of fragmented and costly systems, saving us money over the long term.” Mr Lawrence says Techtonics was selected following an extensive process after demonstrating expertise in information management and access to international vendors.
“Techtonics demonstrated that they can deliver the project cost-effectively into the future, with the added strength that as a New Zealand company they have an inherent understanding of our working environment and are committed to the long haul.”
Greg Bickerton, CEO of Techtonics, says OpenText’s Content Server 10 is increasingly being adopted by the public sector globally as a revolutionary platform for creating ‘borderless’ public service securely and cost efficiently. “Content Server 10 efficiently integrates content and processes across all of government agencies, departments and silos. It securely and effectively addresses many of the operational challenges of the public sector while meeting regulatory obligations to ensure effective delivery of public resources and services.”
The technology chosen by the Ministry is the same technology that has begun a successful production roll out within the Department of Labour. Techtonics has been upgrading the Department’s systems to Content Server 10, following on from earlier work with eDocs.
“We worked with the Department to revise the project scope to ensure the latest products were delivered. The project is considered a major success for the Department,” Mr Bickerton says.

Techtonics is working for Christchurch
25 February 2011
We are fortunate that none of our staff nor it appears, the staff of our clients, were killed in the recent Christchurch earthquake. Like so many, we are all wondering how we can help in some way. So we have had a thought. As a professional services IT company, we earn our income for the work our consultants deliver to our clients.
From now till the end of our financial year (end of March), we’re donating $2 for every hour we spend on client work, for every consultant. So, our whole team is working for Christchurch in a small way every hour of every (business) day.
We expect to be able to hand over a sizeable cash donation to Christchurch, come April.
Kia Kaha Christchurch. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Postscript: $4,144 was raised and donated to Red Cross
New business development manager
19 January 2011
We are pleased to welcome Michael Walker who joins our growing team as Business Development Manager following 11 years based out of the United Kingdom in various high technology roles, most notably with Trimble Navigation and Thales Security Systems. There, he managed business development opportunities and strategic accounts in areas ranging from security and defence to telecommunications within the European and Middle East and African regions. Since returning to New Zealand, Michael was engaged with 4RF Communications in both the energy and homeland security sectors. We look forward to Michael’s contribution to the growth of Techtonics and to his skills in both coffee making and home brewing.

Premier Sponsorship of Cabaret
Techtonics has taken the opportunity to become the principal sponsor for the production of the musical Cabaret, here in Wellington, scheduled to be run for 4 weeks in Oct/ Nov. It is effectively a fund raising event, with the benefits going to a popular and well known charitable trust – the Life Flight Trust. Life Flight Trust is the charity operator of a national air ambulance service and the Wellington Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Its teams fly people to the care they need to dramatically improve their chances of survival and recovery.
