Why become a OneNet Business Partner reseller?
In 1999, when clouds were still associated with the weather, the team at Financial Systems Limited had a vision for the future of computing. The future they envisioned was centred around a concept then known as “on-demand” computing, and is now known as cloud computing. This led to the birth of OneNet in 2000.
As with all transformational transitions in technology, the emergence of cloud computing comes with its own challenges and opportunities. OneNet saw an opportunity to support traditional IT businesses transition from a business model based largely on on-site infrastructure, software and support, to the provision of cloud services.
The inexorable rise of cloud computing’s impact on traditional IT businesses is clearly illustrated by the fate of the humble email server, once a staple of small business environments, and now on the brink of extinction.
The OneNet Business Partner reseller business model allows traditional IT businesses to provide cloud computing services to their clients without the capital cost, skill requirements and risk of creating and managing their own computing cloud.
A business partnership with OneNet leverages OneNet’s own very significant investment in infrastructure and security, access to our 24/7 New Zealand-based support team, and contact with dedicated account managers.
By marketing OneNet’s cloud services to your clients, you will create attractive recurring profit streams for your business and develop a hedge against an uncertain future. Since its inception, well over 200 IT companies, across New Zealand, have joined the OneNet Business Partner reseller programme.

Focus on building your business
As a OneNet Business Partner, you can focus your energy on building your cloud services business without the expensive distraction of building and supporting your own computing cloud.
OneNet’s Desktop as a Service solution delivers users’ applications and documents as a consistent desktop environment to wherever they need it. No more copying files to different devices or concerns about hardware failure, backups, or antivirus.

OneNet’s PC/Mac backup service automatically backs up preselected directories and critical files on users’ local PC’s and laptops to OneNet’s data centres daily. A web portal allows data restoration over the Internet to any computer.
Only pay for the IT services you need
It is difficult to right-size the amount of IT fixed assets for your business. As OneNet’s cloud services are only charged on usage, you only pay for exactly what you need.
Predictable monthly IT costs
You do not like uncertain IT costs. With OneNet’s cloud services, you can have confidence that every month’s IT costs are predictable, well understood and are based on actual usage.

Any application as a cloud service
If your business has customised software, OneNet can, invariably, deliver that software to your users as a cloud service, so you can gain all of the benefits of cloud computing.
All client data is held in New Zealand
All of your data is kept within OneNet’s secure data centres in New Zealand. There is no risk of your data being lost, seized or inspected by any overseas authority.
Save time and increase productivity
OneNet’s cloud services allow you to increase your staff productivity by focusing more on what you do best to create value for your customers, and not on technology issues.
A OneNet Business Partner's perspective
A global charity, with a significant presence in New Zealand with more than 450 staff, had a primary focus on building greater resiliency in its information systems. Their computer system provider, who is a OneNet Business Partner, introduced their client to OneNet to help design a cloud computing solution. Working with our mutual client, OneNet and our Business Partner reseller collaborated to design a robust solution to provide a scalable resilient system across multiple geographic locations. The OneNet Business Partner continues to maintain full control of their client relationship, is invoiced by OneNet at reseller wholesale pricing rates, has full visibility of OneNet’s cloud computing solution for their client, maintains their client’s on-site computing requirements and conducts joint account management calls with their assigned OneNet account manager.
