“ManageEngine is changing the game in IT management software,” claims Rajesh Ganesan, director of product management, ManageEngine.

“Our products help IT provide more value and act as a perfect fit for any business of any size.”

Flourishing as a division of online business giant Zoho, Ganesan believes when it comes to IT management software, ManageEngine fits the target demographic of the New Zealand market.

In a market which typically houses businesses of 50 staff or less, ManageEngine products possess the flexibility to service Kiwi customers across a range of organisation sizes, from small IT teams to large service desk implementation incorporating a 250 seat licence or more.

“Our business model allows greater flexibility with regards to the size of our client base,” adds Ganesan, who believes a key point of difference for ManageEngine centres around flexibility within the market.

In New Zealand, ManageEngine serves the market with clients such as leading online marketplace Trade Me, insurance brokers Crombie Lockwood and Hutt City Council among others.

“ManageEngine products are easy to download, install, configure, and deploy,” Ganesan adds.

“No third-party support services or help is needed which is why our solutions have become the preferred, do-it-yourself alternatives to complex, expensive products from the Big 4.

“We take a straightforward, customer-centric approach to IT management software, an approach which caters to the needs of varying business sizes.”

From small and midsize businesses to organisations of greater scale, ManageEngine questions the complex, IT management suites crippling the market today, shifting the industry goal posts in the process.

“We take a simple, transparent approach to the business of IT management software,” Ganesan adds. “Our pricing has no hidden costs and is available on our website.

“Customers can download our products for a free trial, so they can make informed purchase decisions.”
