Integration and services specialist, Gen-i, will expand its client support operations within Australia.
The expansion in capability will help drive Gen-i’s business growth and address client demand for managed services and collaboration solutions.
Gen-i Managing Director Australia, Paul Wilson, said clients were increasingly relying on the company to provide seamless converged networks that span both sides of the Tasman.
“We are expanding Gen-i’s Australian team of 200 employees by 30 per cent over the next 18 months, focusing investment and growth in four key practice areas - network and security, collaboration, end-user computing and Cloud and virtualisation,” he said.
Wilson said one of the major issues faced by companies operating across both Australia and New Zealand was IT systems complexity and the overheads it created.
Gen-i had focused on putting together seamless ICT solutions designed to help clients reduce costs, while enabling a consistent experience for employees across locations in both countries, he said.
“In the last year, all of our Australasian clients have renewed their agreements, bringing their ICT network and service management under single trans-Tasman agreements with one point of accountability,” Wilson said.
To address the business challenges faced by clients, Gen-i partners with leading enterprise vendors including Cisco, Citrix, VMware,Lenovo, Salesforce, Infosys and Microsoft.
The company is a Cisco Gold Partner, Citrix Platinum Partner and VMware Enterprise Partner accreditations.
It is Cisco’s second partner to achieve accreditation across all three architectures in Australia including: Advanced Data Centre Architecture Specialisation; Advanced Collaboration Architecture Specialisation; and Advanced Borderless Network Architecture Specialisation.
Gen-i has also achieved Microsoft Gold Partner accreditation in End User Computing and Collaboration and Microsoft Silver Partner accreditation in the fields of Server Platform, Virtualisation, Mobility and Search.
