Moving forward with technology

Project Tauranga Partner, Simpson Grierson, has provided the funding for Creative Bay of Plenty (CBOP) to purchase and install a new computer hardware package and network at their office in Tauranga. CBOP delivers a service that supports the creative community in Tauranga and the Western Bay, by encouraging participation, growth and development of arts and culture.

“Our current hardware is nearly seven years old and is on the verge of breaking down,” says Lena Kovac, General Manager CBOP.

“We require an efficient network so we can connect with people and provide a valuable service,” added Lena. Simpson Grierson has enabled CBOP to purchase three new desktops, one laptop and all the associated software, including the technology required to store all information in the Cloud.

“We are delighted to help Creative Bay of Plenty with their equipment and network upgrade, and thereby support them with the growth and development of arts and culture in the region,” says Heather Ash, Partner at Simpson Grierson.

“The generosity of Simpson Grierson will enable us to move forward and make a difference in the community. We are extremely appreciative of Simpson Grierson’s support,” says Lena.
