The Opportunity Microsoft Technology Offers To Kiwi Franchises

Whether you own a cafe, a retail store or a fleet of ice cream vans, you are part of the dynamic Kiwi franchise sector. Representing more than 10% of all small businesses in this country, franchises are booming.

And a key way that businesses can grow is by adopting technology now. The 2017 Franchising New Zealand Report estimated that while 75% of New Zealand franchises have an active social media presence only 12% sell their own product or service online.

Find out how technology can enable your franchise business. See examples of how Microsoft is reinventing franchises across both Australiasia and the world, and see how it’s easy to adopt these same technologies in your New Zealand franchise business.

Microsoft offers you all the tools your franchise needs to work better together, so you can get more done — anytime, anywhere. Your people will work better together using Microsoft 365 and collaboration tools such as Sharepoint, Teams, and Skype For Business. Get in touch with the New Zealand technology partners who can provide you with expert technology advice and the technical skill to integrate these solutions into your business, whatever industry you are in.
