SOLD - Software Reseller

Software Integration; Technology Training; New Zealand & Australia

$395,000 - Christchurch



The key strengths of this business include (but are no limited to):

  • Established & profitable
  • 100+ existing clients generating passive, 'help desk' and additional work revenue
  • Passive/trail income is $11k per month and growing
  • Formal distribution agreements with software suppliers
  • Modest overheads
  • B2B Sales
  • No/limited competition
  • Generating income in both New Zealand and Australia
  • Increasing 'on line' learning market
  • A leader in an emerging industry and a new category
  • Part time hours from current owner
  • Clearly identified opportunities for growth
  • Consistent lead generation from suppliers and professional advisors
  • Exceptional systems & processes

There is a mix of very robust business systems and very capable consultants either employed by the business, or contracted to it. The team have excellent experience in what they do and enjoy their roles, and given they are Canterbury based, it is likely that the business would remain in Christchurch. Saying that, this business could be run from anywhere.

The vendor has a number of differing projects that occupy his time, and freely acknowledges that he is the current bottleneck to growth. This frustrates him as he can see a clear and increasingly profitable future, but simply has insufficient time to execute it...albeit he will be available for a comprehensive handover. The buyer could be:

  • A professional manager experienced in B2B sales
  • A systems integration or training business wanting to bolt on additional capability and/or open a Christchurch branch
  • An accounting firm wanting to own the App Advisory space for specific industries
  • An experienced Project or Contracts Manager or General Manager/CEO wanting to leverage their experience and knowledge within a business systems environment
  • An IT or software specialist wanting to 'do their own thing'

The current owner works about 25 hours per week, primarily responding to lead enquiry and generating sales.
