Press release 

Auckland - Wednesday, 24 June 2020 - Long-term collaborators Sharp New Zealand and Streamline Business Group have partnered to market a software suite that complements the extensive office technology range Sharp offers in New Zealand. This partnership of technology specialists promises a cloud-based software stack that takes the manual and repetitive work out of finance processes, allowing businesses to focus on higher level, business critical tasks. 


Sharp Managing Director Jan Nicol-Winitana says the strategic partnership will ensure Sharp’s clients are offered the gold-standard in technology for their businesses. “We’ve been witnessing our clients’ businesses adapt to change extraordinarily and with that has come a need for next-generation software that will give them more time to focus on their businesses.” 


Streamline chairman and CEO Craig Pellett agrees. “We’ve learned over time that there’s a growing appetite for liberating businesses from inefficient and error-prone manual processes,” he says. “That appetite has only increased as New Zealand companies emerge from the Covid-19 lockdown, so the time is right for a sales model that makes it easy for businesses to tap into the advantages of office automation.”


Sharp’s National Marketing Manager, Marcellus Ramakers, says the launch is a joint project that has been carefully planned and will be rolled out nationwide in June 2020. “The relative strength of both businesses will provide synergistic benefits to organisations looking to automate their finance processes. The COVID-19 situation exposed the necessity for digital workflows to maintain business continuity, even if working from home. This partnership with Streamline ensures this for our customers.” 


The product stack, including finance automation software, bookkeeping and administration services launches today. You can learn more about it here:
