In a country of small-to-medium businesses, this Cisco New Zealand $100,000 Makeover Competition, offers business the chance to transform the way they do business through the use of smart and targeted collaboration technologies.

Take a listen to last year’s winner – Dynaflow NZ – which is a family-run hydraulics and industrial hose company comprising 26 staff that achieved significant cost savings, improved internal collaboration and enhanced client interactions through their Cisco Unified Communications makeover prize.  Click here for a radio interview with Dynaflow’s Scott Clarke on Radio Live in New Zealand.

Dynaflow’s Cisco Unified Communications solution was installed by business partner Bizo in 2009 and Clarke recently remarked, “We’re already looking at a 30% savings year-on- year for tolls and travel alone.  Our people are talking more often, relationships are strengthening and with a more efficient system in place we can afford as much contact as people need.”

This year, Cisco has doubled the competition prize package to $100,000 worth of Cisco Smart Small Business Pro solutions to the successful competition winner.  Entries are due at midnight NZ time on Saturday, May 29, 2010.  Entry information is available from
