Naverisk seeks international partner

27 Jul 10

Naverisk recently became part of the US’s ASCII Group, a community of independent MSPs, system integrators and solution providers. CEO Jon Kalaugher has told The Channel that the company aims to aggressively build on this relationship and is now seeking a business partner to help fund international growth.

“This deal gives us direct access to the US-based ASCII community and will be the foundation of our US market expansion,” he said. “We are already seeing an increase in international sales enquiries.”

Kalaugher says that the ASCII group recruited Naverisk as a partner to “ensure the business benefits we offer our IT Service Provider partners are fully accessible by their community”.

Naverisk now plans to expand its international business off the back of the deal.

“It’s still early days for the IT Services automation software market,” Kalaugher continued. “In the US, the most mature in terms of managed services adoption, there is still only 15% market penetration. The US market is a key focus for us and the foundation of this will be the ASCII partnership.”

Short term goals for the Mount Eden-based company will see it develop the Naverisk platform with three to four new releases every year. 

Kalaugher added that he is also “looking to secure a business partner to help fund our international growth. Having proven there is a market opportunity for our offering and our ability to realise this opportunity we are very confident for the future of Naverisk.”
