13 Mar 2014

A fast-growing MYOB partner with offices in Invercargill, Queenstown, Gore and Christchurch, Focus Technology Group has won the annual MYOB Enterprise Solutions Partner Excellence in Business Growth New Zealand award for a second time.

The coveted accolade recognises the partner who achieved the most impressive growth for MYOB Enterprise Solutions in New Zealand last year. The prize is a five-day trip to Langkawi, Malaysia.

MYOB General Manager, Enterprise Division, Andrew Birch congratulated Focus Technology, saying, “Rod Sinclair and his team have done amazing work over the past two years, and I’m delighted MYOB can recognise them in this way. They continue to experience impressive exponential business growth right across the South Island.

“Focus Technology has invested in their salesforce this year, with increased headcount and training to really take on the opportunities available in their region.

“Their ambition, strategic approach and clever implementation of systems and processes are indicative of the successful qualities Focus Technology consistently demonstrates as a key MYOB partner.”

Director of Focus Technology Group, Rod Sinclair, said, “It’s such a great feeling to know that we’re recognised both among our peers, as well as across the industry itself.

“I think the award highlights just how impressive the Focus Technology team is. Our team is exceptional at both selling and deploying software. Over the last two years, we have seen a large increase in sales, which can be attributed to the hard work of the Focus Technology employees. The award is definitely great recognition of the work the team has done.”

Established out of an accounting firm’s IT department in the early 1990s, Focus Technology Group is now a multi-faceted organisation offering a range of information, communication and technology services. With 27 employees, its focus is providing professional, innovative and realistic advice.
