Team Modica are dusting off their frocks and suits, ready for the Auckland Export Awards gala dinner in June, after being named a finalist in the ICT Exporter of the Year category.
Modica’s founder Stuart Wilson was on hand to collect Modica’s award when the finalists were announced in Auckland last week.
Although surprised, Stu says it was an honour to be named among an impressive line up of successful, innovative Kiwi businesses.
“We know we have had significant international growth, but I never expected to make it through to the finals because the application and judging process is so rigorous,” Stu says.
“Passing through that process and being named among the top businesses, is confirmation that we’re heading in the right direction.”
Modica’s amazing team of people is the powerhouse galvanising the company’s performance, but it’s our enterprise SaaS platform that is allowing us to expand globally, he says.
“We’re incredibly lucky to have a great team that understands what we’re doing and onboard with us 100%.”
During the past few years Modica has taken on key personnel and established important partnerships to help drive growth in emerging markets particularly Central and South America, South East Asia, and Africa.
Increased mobile phone uptake and improving telecommunication networks in these countries make Modica’s cloud-based messaging services a cost-effective, efficient service for businesses to engage with their mobile customers anytime, anywhere.
“It’s exciting, we’ve invested a great deal of time and money to get all our systems and procedures in place, enabling us to leverage the growing demand for mobile enterprise services with our efficient, robust two-way messaging services.”
Export New Zealand Auckland’s director Catherine Lye said companies entering the awards ranged from large and well established, to small, emerging businesses.
“We are delighted to be able to showcase such a brilliant cross section of New Zealand’s most innovative, successful and exciting companies.”
The winners will be presented at a gala dinner at the Langham hotel on June 18.
Wish us luck!
