Wellington leads NZ Growth Surge for Enprise

February 11, 2014

It was only May last year when Wellington’s economy looked so bleak that even our prime minister John Key referred to it as a “dying city”. “All you have there is government, Victoria University and Weta Workshop” he said.

From my perspective today at Enprise Solutions and the business of selling MYOB EXO business management software to a wide cross-section of medium-sized NZ businesses; Wellington’s small to medium business owners have switched on to investing for growth and I would say that they are more optimistic about the general business climate than we’ve ever seen before. The last quarter of 2013 saw Enprise sell more than three times as many MYOB EXO systems in Wellington as the same quarter the previous year. December and January were record months for new Wellington-based MYOB EXO ERP software sales, with February shaping up to look even better.

Enprise’s other New Zealand branches in Auckland and Hamilton are also experiencing an upsurge in demand now that confidence is returning to the New Zealand business climate. Businesses owners are realizing that they need to invest in putting strong operational and financial systems in place to compete and capitalize on the opportunities of a more buoyant market. There is also a strong shift towards Cloud Computing and almost half of all the MYOB EXO systems we sell are hosted in the Cloud by our associate company 2Cloud.biz.

In Australia, Enprise has offices in Sydney and Melbourne which also focus on selling MYOB EXO software to the larger local SME businesses. Australian business confidence took a hit last year before the election and we noticed a drop-off in business software investment. Following the election, we are seeing a recovery in business sentiment and we’re now very optimistic about Australian sales in 2014.
