Focus Technology Group - MYOB 2013 New Zealand Partner of the Year

13 Mar 2014

Focus Technology Group has been recognised as the MYOB Enterprise Solutions New Zealand Partner of the Year 2013 at a recent event in Sydney.

The award recognises a partner’s outstanding achievements and work as a consultant, educator, supporter and advisor of MYOB Enterprise Solution clients in New Zealand last year. The prize is a five-day trip to Langkawi, Malaysia.

MYOB General Manager, Enterprise Division, Andrew Birch presented the award to Focus Technology director, Rod Sinclair at the recent MYOB Enterprise Solutions Partner conference in Sydney.

“Rod is an extremely well-respected member of our partner community who works tirelessly alongside his team to ensure New Zealand businesses can make the most of our enterprise solutions. He and the team are very deserving of this year’s award,” Mr Birch said.

“Focus Technology has continued to stand out in a very competitive field through dedication to superior client service and drive to implement the highest quality business systems and processes. The company’s network of professional consultants work expertly to help their clients make the most of MYOB solutions, which in turn helps those clients manage their business better and grow faster.”

Director of Focus Technology Group, Rod Sinclair, said the award is a culmination of a busy year. “We‘ve had some good leads from MYOB that have helped us produce great results, which has been most appreciated. As a result we’ve increased our sales resource and grown our business to meet the demand. We’ve also had some luck with the growth of the New Zealand economy, and the Christchurch economy, post-earthquake.

“Like most businesses, we focus on our clients and deliver services to them the best we can by meeting their needs and keeping them happy at all times. We see a great future ahead with MYOB. We are really happy to be a partner of MYOB and the growth we are going to achieve together in the future, is really exciting.”
