Waikato based NetValue Ltd is expanding its business capability and has announced its merger with WebSpring Ltd, an award-winning online marketing company.
The future of web development is very promising and NetValue is leading the way in this area. “We wanted to expand our own capability in online marketing and what better way to do so than to embrace a company that has the right formula.” said Graham Gaylard, CEO of NetValue.
NetValue sees WebSpring’s expertise in the area of online marketing and social media as increasingly critical for business. The combination of NetValue’s capabilities in web development and software development and WebSpring’s expertise in online marketing creates the total online business solution. “We are looking forward to offering our existing clients new areas of expertise to help grow their businesses online" said Mr. Gaylard.
NetValue Ltd was established six years ago with three staff. It has grown significantly from these humble beginnings. Today with almost 50 staff, the company boasts one of the New Zealand's largest online design and development groups with a number of internet related commercial interests.
WebSpring’s success to date can be attributed to its enthusiastic and focused team. In understanding this critical success factor, NetValue have retained the entire WebSpring staff.
“This was an inevitable step forward for WebSpring following its rapid growth after the award win” says Elisabeth Soffe, former WebSpring General Manager and Director, now NetValue’s new Sales and Marketing Manager. WebSpring Ltd was awarded Waikato’s Best Emerging Business in 2009 at the Westpac Waikato Business Excellence Awards and were finalists in the Innovation Award.
The NetValue Group is actively looking to acquire other successful companies in the IT and Online sector to continue this strong and rapid growth. “We are keen to hear from business owners interested in exploring possibilities with us”, says Mr Gaylard.
NetValue Ltd was incorporated with the aim of building a world class software development and online services group. Since inception it has pursued strategic businesses and in doing so has acquired several key technology companies, the primary businesses include Reel Two Ltd (high-end database development and high performance computing), SLIM Search™ Ltd, Interspeed (website development and hosting), SitesOnline (website development and hosting), Key Software (accounting and job costing) and WebAddress (wholesale domain names).
