Intergen finally, properly, became Intergen as we now know it in June of 2001.
Today we employ more than 350+ staff across our offices in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Sydney, Perth and Seattle. Plus the work we do extends beyond Australasian shores to Europe, Asia and the United States.
One thing above all has remained constant over our time in operation: our unwavering commitment to Microsoft. Technology may have evolved radically over the years, but our core Microsoft foundations have not (and will not).
Glazier Systems (We do Windows) was established in 1995 when it was spun out of the software development group of an international chartered accounting and consulting firm. While Glazier’s initial key focus was software development in Microsoft Access, the Dawn of the Internet was full of promise and hard to ignore, and we very quickly moved into the web development space, creating a flurry of intranets and internets (amongst other things) for private and public sector organisations alike. And we never looked back.
Starting out officially as Intergen in Wellington in 2001 with 38 staff, new businesses were acquired and regional and international offices proliferated. Around this time, we got behind .NET, deciding it was the horse to back (and fortunately it proved to be a winner). We’ve never looked back, as they say. Well, only to take stock.
Technology and time marched on, and along came a steady stream of new Microsoft technologies, which we have always eagerly and swiftly embraced. Like the Microsoft Dynamics suite and Microsoft Silverlight, to name just two.
The original Intergen founders – Tony Stewart, Paddy Payne, and Wayne Forgesson – are as much a part of Intergen’s direction now as they were in the beginning, although they’re not quite as fresh-faced. They’ve also picked up two extra Directors in recent years: Chris Auld, through the acquisition of his company, Kognition, and our first independent Director, Richard Westlake.
We’ve stocked up our metaphorical trophy cabinet along the way, and reminisced on a fair few business highlights. Long may they continue.
A place for Intergenites and Ex-Intergenites to keep in touch.
