Cisco New Zealand $100,000 Communications Makeover

May 12, 2010 - 3 Comments

Cisco New Zealand is again offering small to medium sized businesses the chance to win a total Communications Makeover and this year we have doubled the prize package, offering $100,000* of Cisco solutions and deployment.

The Cisco Communications Makeover is a chance for businesses to transform the way they operate and help them stay ahead of the competition.

“New Zealand is a country of small-to-medium businesses,” says Geoff Lawrie, managing director, Cisco New Zealand.  “Many of those businesses already punch well above their weight with the commercial success they achieve from the size and resourcing of their business, but their growth can be hampered by inefficient, out-dated or overloaded communications infrastructure.”

“The $100k Cisco Communications Makeover offers those businesses the chance to transform their operations through the use of smart collaboration technologies that make them more efficient and productive, and better able to support that next phase of growth, ” said Lawrie.

As the winner of the 2009 Cisco Makeover, Kiwi company Dynaflow now benefits from IP Telephony and WebEx, as well as improved site security and has reported a 30% savings year-on-year for tolls and travel alone.

The 2010 $100k Cisco Communications Makeover is open to all New Zealand businesses with between 20 and 100 employees.  Entries will be assessed by a Cisco-led panel of experts with external expertise being offered by Brett O’Riley, NZICT Group Chief Executive Officer.

The closing date for entries is Sunday 28 May, 2010, with the winner announced on Wednesday, 2 June, 2010.
