This month, we have two items of exciting news with regards to the New Zealand branch of Resolve Software Group!
First, the lease on the office in Wellington has been renewed for another 3 years. This allows RSG to continue maintaining its presence in New Zealand, and provide local Wellington-based support to their New Zealand clients.
Second, with the discontinuation of many New Zealand copper-based phone exchanges, the Wellington office is being upgraded to a new VOIP/soft phone system. This system allows better call quality and provides the RSG Wellington staff with the ability to monitor their phones and keep in contact even outside the office.
The New Zealand office is located at Level 4, 104 The Terrace, Wellington, 6011, New Zealand.

Working remotely benefits employees
Everyone benefits when employees roam free: Work-from-anywhere policies for employees who work independently have the power to raise productivity and revenue and decrease hiring costs, according to research from Harvard Business School. The study, which examined the effects of such policies at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, also found that letting employees work from anywhere allowed people to move to less expensive areas, increasing their earning power and strengthening local economies in the process. One caveat: It’s unclear if such benefits would apply to those with jobs that require significant collaboration.
