Greenstone Energy, the New Zealand company which now owns and operates the Shell-branded retail fuel business, has appointed Integral Axon as its IT service desk and desktop support provider.

Integral Axon was selected by Greenstone Energy as a result of a detailed market process. 

General Manager of Transition and Operations, Rhoda Holmes, said Integral Axon has a sound business model with the flexibility to develop unique, tailored solutions around Greenstone's IT requirements.

"Integral Axon is a wholly New Zealand-owned provider which is important to us, but more importantly they demonstrated a flexible, nimble approach to meeting our business needs.

"As we set about building a world-class Kiwi company and laying the foundations for future growth, it is important that we work with an IT services supplier that can grow and develop with us and meet our changing needs," said Mrs Holmes.

"Integral Axon had the right skills and the right scale to best meet our needs." 

Integral Axon was formed as the result of the acquisition of Axon Computer Systems by Integral Technology Group on 1 May 2010. The merger has created New Zealand's largest privately-owned ICT services company with revenues approaching $150 million, around 360 staff and offices located in Wellington, Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch. 

Chief Executive of Integral Axon, Ray Noonan, said that achieving ongoing close alignment in the style of service delivery that Integral Axon will provide is as important as the services themselves.

“The strong value and business outcomes focus of Greenstone’s business resonates well with us.

“Integral Axon is committed to supporting Greenstone in ways that enable their users to focus more on delivering quality and profitable services to the market. Together, this will make us both highly successful.”
