Former Computerland chief executive Chris Mackay has taken a major equity position of CodeBlue. He will also take a seat on the board.
Mackay, who has spent the past six months in Europe, says there was a gap in the market for sophisticated support systems for mid-range companies. CodeBlue provides remote support and monitoring, and is based on Kaseya, a US-built system.
“It’s about utility computing, with fixed prices every month,” Mackay says.
The company, founded by former Toshiba NZ chief executive Ken Davis, has offices in Auckland and Hamilton. It employs 20 people.
