Supporting local business is something we are passionate about. We are proud to be a 100% New Zealand owned and operated company, with a New Zealand based website design and development team that is second to none,
It's Not Easy!
In a market where consumers are more than likely going to make a purchase with price as a driving factor, it is hard to compete with product developed in locations where labour is far cheaper than in NZ.
At Koda Web I believe we have found the right balance, we are not going to be the cheapest option for your new development, we won't be the most expensive, what we will be is a partner you can trust, a team that will deliver on our commitments to you, and charge a fair price for doing so.
At the end of the day business needs to be sustainable, if you want to establish a long term working relationship with suppliers we need to recognise that they do need to make some profit out of the relationship.
I believe that in some respects business in New Zealand today is paying the price for the price gouging that used to take place when IT was in its infancy, the days when companies charged the world to deliver inferior solutions are gone - this is a good thing!
I do believe that in our pursuit of the best bargain, we have opened the door to the delivery of web solutions that are poor, yes they are cheap, however, when we look at the cost of remedial work to a budget built website to allow it operate the way it should, the initial bargain price becomes questionable.
Outsourced Web Development
Many web developers in Auckland and New Zealand are outsourcing the design and development of websites they have been given to build to partners in India. They are spoilt for choice, I am spammed daily with Indian based companies offering to deliver all our web design and development services for a fraction of the cost we can do it here.
At Koda we are not going to do that, from my days at Hewlett Packard, where I saw first hand the social and business pain caused by outsourcing to low cost locations, coupled with the poor quality of web solutions I see delivered by some budget providers in Auckland, I am convinced that there is a real business advantage when establishing your online presence working with a local company that has an in-house design and development team.
A company that encourages you to drop in and meet the team, have a coffee and a chat about your online challenges and who is there for you 24x7.
Koda fulfils this role for our clients, we are proud to be:
100% New Zealand Made!
