Gen-i grows with North Island acquisition

IT services company buys-out more franchise operators

Gen-i has acquires the Gen-i franchises operated by Real Time Computing in the Manawatu, Wanganui and Taranaki regions

The company says the buyout is designed to strengthen Gen-i’s service delivery, ensure a greater focus on Gen-i’s business priorities and extend its technical reach and capabilities.

“The RTC franchise, known locally as Gen-i Central and Gen-i Taranaki, is a very successful business employing over 70 people across offices in New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Wanganui and Hawera,” said Steve Mills, Gen-i’s general manager of NZ corporate sales. “It is the largest of our regional franchise groups, with a diverse range of clients across the local government, health, agriculture, corporate and energy sectors.”

RTC had been placed on the market by its owners, and the acquisition is a result of many months of planning, Gen-i says. Settlement is targeted for 12 December.

Real Time Computing became a Gen-i franchise in 2005, after a long-standing local presence as a Computerland franchise. It has offices in New Plymouth and Palmerston North and satellite offices in Wanganui and Hawera.

Gen-i bought another franchisee, Computer Plus Otago, in February.
