We’re pleased to announce that on 9th November 2013 Designwyse Australia was acquired by Computers Now. This is an incredibly exciting time for us all, with both businesses bringing many strengths to the consolidation that in turn will benefit our clients.
Like Designwyse, CompNow is a family run business that values long-term relationships with its clients, suppliers and staff. Established in 1990 as an Apple reseller, CompNow initially serviced the consumer market, but over time our focus has shifted to developing customised procurement, deployment and support services for Education, Government and business.
In FY13 we turned over almost $80m delivering these solutions. Apple still forms part of our core product offering but our key relationships have broadened and now include a range of strategic vendors, enabling us to provide a more comprehensive solution set, from traditional desktop deployments through to large scale mobility solutions.
The addition of the Designwyse team will see our staff numbers total 110, with 50 of those belonging to our technical team. The Keysborough location will be our fourth, joining South Melbourne, Adelaide and Crows Nest in Sydney.
As well as offering exceptional customer service, Designwyse has proven successful in areas including training and colour management, and with apps such as app4schools, and in FY13 generated revenue of nearly $20m. Now with CompNow’s larger product offering, infrastructure, extensive technical expertise and diverse skills, Designwyse staff will have the resources to devote more attention to what they do best – servicing clients.
We look forward to continuing the excellence in service and expertise that clients have come to expect and forging even stronger relationships. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all or would like any further information.
