Esolutions Exceeds First Year Targets

Esolutions Exceeds First Year Targets And Launches Operational Framework Infrastructure

esolutions, the ecommerce infrastructure provider, has exceeded its financial targets in its first full year of operation, recording revenues of over $10 million.

The Telecom New Zealand, EDS and Microsoft alliance also announced it is well ahead of EBIT budget for the 2000/2001 financial year.

From its inception esolutions has planned to break even after two years. esolutions is still forecasting to break even by the end of this financial year.

In the year to June, esolutions’ revenue base grew by over $8.3 million – up from just $1.7million in the previous part-year.

esolutions general manager Jane Freeman says the financial results reflect significant growth in infrastructure packages and moderate growth in application packages.

“We’ve drawn upon the intellectual property of our parent companies to develop our own ecommerce infrastructure and suite of over nine products with more in development.”

Ms Freeman says the shared intellectual property of esolutions’ parents has enabled the alliance to significantly reduce development costs while delivering new revenue streams to alliance members.

Significant core network revenues are generated for Telecom New Zealand in addition to esolutions revenues. The alliance also generates revenues for its other partners EDS and Microsoft.

esolutions Channel and Communications Manager Sue McCarty says esolutions will focus on further developing its ecommerce infrastructure offering in the next financial year.

“Using Microsoft’s expertise at the Professional Services Centre in Seattle, our technicians developed the Operational Framework Infrastructure - a high performance, fast-to-market, scalable environment for online trading and ecommerce applications. This will allow our channel partners and customers to service trading communities’ ecommerce infrastructure requirements.

“Customers are increasingly looking for ways to reduce their capex investments. The Operational Framework Infrastructure enables businesses to quickly scale up their applications, leverage new technologies and reduce their networking costs without having to invest in their own stand-alone systems,” she said.

The Operational Framework Infrastructure focuses on infrastructure performance as well as the management required to support the full range of ebusiness applications.
