Whangarei Girls' High School

“We like the fact that the team from New Era IT listened to what we had to say...they took the time to explain the various options we could select and made recommendations based on their experience. They didn’t try to force any particular solution on us and genuinely wanted to give us the best fit for our needs.”

Principal - Whangarei Girls High School

We knew about New Era IT, of course, as they are sponsors of SPANZ (Secondary Principals’ Association of New Zealand) and have a high profile in the education sector.

In addition, our executive officer asked the same questions of other execs - they have a different set of criteria - and received similar reports.”
