AppSense: More growth to come from New Zealand

07 Apr 10

Before considering a move into Asia, ANZ General Manager Sean Walsh believes there's a lot more growth to come from Australia and New Zealand.

“We’re growing and hiring more staff,” Walsh told The Channel. “We still feel that there’s a lot of growth to come from Australia and New Zealand."

He continued, “The obvious next step is to be going into Asia and we already have customers in the Asian market. It’s just a case of scaling up our business, gathering resources and having the right partners in place to help us grow because we can’t do it ourselves.”

Walsh said that AppSense currently has around eight partners in the local market and is open to taking on more but only if they are the right ones for the company. “Our technology’s not suited to a thousand people because it’s not a consumer based product, so what we’re after is having the right enterprise partners who want to provide best practice solutions to their customers.”

AppSense was recently recognised by Everything Channel as one of North America’s top IT vendors for its ChannelSense program. Nigel Wilson, Head Of Channel at AppSense, said, “AppSense is dedicated to helping our partners be as successful as possible, and this means supplying them with the best, most comprehensive resources in education, marketing and technical support.”
