Nau mai, haere mai, piki mai, kake mai. Welcome to Pentech Communications and to this instalment of how our values are influenced by the Māori culture of Aotearoa New Zealand.
Kaitiakitanga: Future Proofing
At Pentech, we believe that education is a key contributor to the growth and sustainability of our businesses, our communities, and our regions in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our belief in the importance of education is reflected in our Business Plan 2016 where we state that ‘thought leadership’ is a strategic priority for Pentech. As we reflect on the past year, we celebrate the success of some of our whanau who graduated recently from University. We are particularly proud to acknowledge two mother and son combinations – ka mau te wehi (fantastic).

Our commitment to education is also illustrated through our support of the Victoria Business School (VBS) Excellence Awards. The ceremony was held in May and the Pentech Award for Information Systems was awarded to Arushi Sharma. We are committed to this important programme as VBS delivers graduates who will take Aotearoa New Zealand into a bright future.
Our partnership with Victoria University also led to Jan Schoenfelder, one of our Lead Consulting Architects, delivering a lecture to the Victoria University of Wellington School of Engineering in May. This will be an ongoing contribution to the education of our rangatahi (youth).
So what does this all mean for you as customers?
When you engage with us, we will look to build innovative solutions that add value to the work that has gone on before; the work you have already done. We’ve found that innovation isn’t always about deploying the latest and greatest idea or concept. Sometimes it’s about taking what already works well and complementing, where applicable, with the new.
We can achieve this, not only sharing our knowledge and skills with you, but also by being the recipients of your knowledge and skills about your business, your vision, and your requirements. We believe that outcomes are much richer when we all share our expertise and experiences, by working together, and by learning from each other.
At Pentech, we believe that education is at the heart of Kaitiakitanga and that knowledge is retained through sharing.
