Helping businesses to work smarter
Businesses can work online smarter but it is dependent on the business being online with the right tools so that all the critical information the business needs across multiple levels can be easily controlled, says founder of Timaru based company SPF, Robyn von Pein.
Specialising in digital design for more than a decade, SPF has a unique perspective on how digital technology can best be leveraged to grow business.
Robyn says that the SPF team thinks of its work as helping business to work smarter online by forging secure connections between digital tools and information control.
She says that from the business perspective an attractive and future-proof online brand includes seamless access to things like tracking and reporting of stock, customer engagement and even integration with Xero.
SPF was started over a decade ago and today boasts a team with expertise in digital design, web programming, visual and graphic design, digital branding, marketing and design, web development and search engine optimisation.
From its headquarters in Timaru the company works for a variety of clients throughout New Zealand.
It has particular expertise in tourism online booking and e-commerce systems for local, national and international clients, and has formed strategic partnerships to bring a unique depth of insight to new and established businesses in these sectors.
SPF is one of only 10 agencies in the world to achieve Trusted Partner status with the Rezdy booking system, an international platform widely seen as the benchmark for large tourism operations.
For smaller tourism operators, SPF makes life easier by specialising in local booking systems, which integrate seamlessly with New Zealand’s i-Site technology.
In terms of e-commerce, SPF is the only ‘Certified Shopify Expert’ in Canterbury giving an instant advantage to anyone wanting to sell online by providing effortless integration with one of the world’s most trusted e-commerce platforms.
“We’re about making sure digital technology works, and delivers meaningful improvements for everyone in a business ecosystem,” says Robyn.
“That sounds really obvious but there are so many digital products out there and it can be tricky to choose a platform that will actually match your unique business needs, day to day.
She says that the aim is always to improve each customer’s business by delivering effective solutions based on the right innovative technologies and clean designs.
“Our work changes the way people behave and perceive. We love building fresh, unique and usable websites and mobile web solutions. It’s about creating digital solutions to suit each customer’s unique requirements that engage their customers, transform their brand and ultimately grow their business.”
