Press Release: New Software Company ready for start-up Capital.
We wish to advise that Waitiri Capital has been mandated to raise start-up capital for Customer Information Technologies Limited (CIT). We believe that the customer relationship management (Customerite) software to be developed by CIT is an excellent opportunity to participate in the growing New Zealand IT sector. The Company is currently wholly owned and lead by Ian Mitchell who has over 30 years in the IT industry in New Zealand. Ian has previously served two terms as the President of the New Zealand Computer Society and more recently served as the CEO of PHAROS Systems Limited. Ian has vigorously researched the market in NZ and internationally and developed a software concept that we believe has the potential to become a leading software product worldwide. He already has four pre-sales commitments from potential IT customers.
The Company will put together a team of software developers all highly experienced in their fields to develop the Customerite software over a six month period. The software to be developed is based around the newly emerging Customer Relationship Management area.
Key features of this new software business are:-
Ø A team of highly skilled,
motivated individuals with significant experience in
international software development.
