The opening of specialist IT hub in Greytown couldn’t have come at a better time. South Wairarapa Computer Services brings a wide range of integrated services for those needing anything from installation of home entertainment technology through to full office infrastructure set-up and web design.
Owners John and Vicki Rennie are opening the doors with an Open Day on June 29 and they have partnered up with specialist providers in the area to bring a complete range of services. They look forward to supplying their customers with all their computer needs from the front of 124 Main Street, Greytown.
John is managing the business and he has a background in IT spanning 35 years, most recently coming from working as technical support for Payroll and HR systems at the ANZ Bank. A keen sportsman, John has played and coached provincial hockey. He now plays golf when time permits. John is often seen driving around Greytown in his ‘blue’ ute with his black labs, Max and Zoe, in the front seat beside him.
He is also employing well-known local computer guru Kerry Fenwick to round off the team. Kerry drives the fire-engine for the Greytown Volunteer Fire Brigade. Kerry has been involved in fixing ‘things’ since he was about 10 when he was charging $5 to tune in TV3 for locals. This has progressed to ‘Computer Technician’ qualifications when he left Kuranui College and hands on experience over the past 12 years. As his father, Denis, says – ‘Kerry can fix anything’.
“We can provide all your computer servicing needs from a tune-up and clean, through to a full build and install for your specific needs,” says John.
South Wairarapa Computer Services are located in their own Main Street offices opposite The White Swan Hotel. This includes a small retail space, the workshop and a couple of computer workstations that will act as a kind of business hub for those that want a temporary office base to use while they are in Greytown. These desks will have high speed VDSL connections and support services which mean the office can be used as a business hub.
In the name of bringing together a wide range of IT services that local people might need, John says they will be working in with local Greytown web designer Dillon Sykes to help clients construct websites. South Wairarapa Computer Services has also formed a relationship with Lamb Peters Print so that clients will have access to all their printing services to complete the package.
