Kiwi distie iData in liquidation

09 Feb 15

Auckland-based distributor iData Resolutions has been put into liquidation, with Dennis Clifford Parsons appointed as liquidator on 21 January. 

Richard James Rowley was appointed liquidator of the Australian operations of the company on January 22.

iData partners and customers have been notified of the appointment.

iData grew out of Backup Strategies Limited, which was formed by Michael Leonard-Smith in 1992.

The company was the original Legato distributor in New Zealand, specialising in backup and recovery applications with a very strong focus on support.

iData has offices in Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne and Sydney. Vendors of the backup provider included Microsoft, AWS, IBM, Pure Storage, Symantec and Hitachi.

A statement from D.C Parsons says, “The liquidator fixes Friday 20 February 2015 as the day on or before which the creditors of the company are to make their claims and establish any priority their claims may have, under section 312 of the Companies Act 1993, or to be excluded from the benefit of any distribution made before their claims are made or, as the case may be, from objecting to the distribution.”

Customers and partners are now being directed to New Zealand company, Sempre.

"If you are a customer under a maintenance contract, or wanting general assistance, please contact support@sempre.co.nz," according to the company's website.
