FuseIT connects web based software applications


FuseIT connects web based software applications to improve business

FuseIT is the new brand for Nelson based technology company PolyMEDIA. For over ten years PolyMEDIA has successfully delivered Internet-enabled applications connected with large relational databases to corporations of all sizes across the USA and New Zealand. The new branding reflects the company’s more focused approach, offering solutions that seamlessly integrate web based software applications with legacy systems running in the office. A new website was launched on Monday 6 October.

“We saw a great opportunity to provide solutions that better connect our clients to their customers,” said FuseIT CEO Richard Clarke.

“We use state-of-the-art web technology to improve connections between our client's teams and their business processes.”

FuseIT’s current offerings are based on three strategic themes.

“The first of these is better targeted communication with customers through dynamic content-driven websites,” said Richard. “The website is often the first port of call for customers, it needs to be a fully functioning front door to your business, encouraging customers to enter.

The second theme is increased productivity of staff using electronic collaboration and document handling systems, to ensure work is undertaken efficiently and effectively, and staff productivity is fully realised.

Thirdly, FuseIT offers extended use of companies’ IT systems by integrating web based applications to existing applications and databases, to ensure efficient use of IT capital already invested in the business, and maximise the return from this investment.

“The benefits of having these three platforms in place underpinning the business soon flows through to the bottom line,” said Richard.

FuseIT is based in Nelson, with a recently established office in California to service the needs of a growing number of large clients in the United States.

“We are now working with one of our US clients on integrating print-on-demand software with, a web based customer relationship management tool”, explains Richard Clarke. “Companies can now order online customised sales and marketing printed material such as invitations and brochures. This exciting new software will be launched at DreamForce 2008, the yearly event held in November in San Francisco.”

FuseIT has a team of highly qualified and capable technology professionals with proven experience in consulting, solution architecture, software development and integration. The current range of solutions includes for customer relationship management, Sitecore for web content management, Microsoft’s SharePoint for collaboration and document handling and Microsoft SQL Server for transactional data storage and business intelligence.

John van der Burg, Senior Business Consultant with FuseIT, says: “What makes us different from competitors is our ability to translate web based technology into real business value by growing revenues and improving productivity. Many New Zealand companies are struggling to achieve their growth plans and to remain financially healthy. We can quickly identify the tangible benefits of introducing new technology.”
