Group Station wows Christchurch

01 Oct 07

At the recent Small Business Expo in Christchurch, Group Station, a Christchurch-based reseller of affordable PC access solutions from NComputing, won an award for “Most Interactive Exhibit”.
The Small Business Expo is the largest event for businesses in New Zealand with over 12,000 attendees at the three expos held in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this year.  The Group Station stand demonstrated, in a highly visual and graphic way to attendees, that a single personal computer can support up to 30 users by using NComputing software and X300 and L200 access terminals.
“It is wonderful to see a local Christchurch business win one of our exhibitor awards at our first Christchurch Small Business Expo,” said the Expo’s Managing Director Sarah Trotman of Sarah Trotman and Associates Ltd. “An innovative product, such as NComputing’s PC access system, that offers very real cost savings to the owners of small to medium-sized businesses is exactly the sort of product we love being profiled at the Small Business Expo. The Expo offers an excellent opportunity for business owners to identify new and innovative ways they can improve profitability and productivity.”
Jerome Brown, Group Station’s Christchurch director, accepted the award in front of the large community of exhibitors at the Expo.
