|Vadacom's hardware and software|
One example that popped into my inbox today was Vadacom, a local manufacturer of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) PBX (Private Branch eXchange) systems. Basically, they make local phone switches that connect to the interweb, and the associated software. Vadacom's system have got a boost from Xero's IT Manager. Xero are using Vadacom globally as part of their ongoing expansion.
This is the sort of business that needs to be encouraged to set up shop in Upper Hutt. Vadacom is not only a successful exporting business, it's also an employer. And the sort of jobs they've created are exactly the sort Upper Hutt is after - high-paying and based on a solid technical background.
