SPONSOR FEATURE: Eagle Technology opens Christchurch office

Eagle Technology Group Ltd has opened an office in Christchurch earlier this year to support its South Island client base. Located on High Street in the Innovation Presinct, the office makes real the ‘virtual’ office that has been run by Kenna Kelly, principal Account Manager for Eagle’s South Island customers, since the earthquake of February 2011. Joining Kenna is a full service team offering Professional Services and Technical Support.

Duane Eagle, Managing Director, Eagle Technology, says the office is the culmination of a plan that began more than seven years ago. “We first opened our Christchurch office in January 2011 in Victoria Street, an area that suffered extensive damage just one month later, and necessitated Kenna’s move to her home as a base, supported remotely by the wider team out of Wellington and Auckland. During this time our South Island customers have grown to include more than 150 organisations across sectors including Local Government, Infrastructure, Agriculture, Utilities, Education, Iwi, Consulting and Business.”

“We have a number of very long-standing customers, particularly in local and regional government , as well as a burgeoning number in other sectors, such as Forestry and Infrastructure. As a full-service IT infrastructure and GIS practice, we’ve provided GIS solutions to solve a number of problems relating to the Christchurch re-build, and have been active in assisting with Common Operating systems for Emergency Management teams in more recent events, such as the Port Hills fires and the Kaikoura earthquakes. So it’s very exciting after a seven year hiatus, to have a permanent, accessible local base for our team and our customers.”

Eagle Technology is the distributor for Esri’s ArcGIS platform, and will also now be offering instructor led training courses in Christchurch as part of the regular training schedule.
