The perfect team
Bill is an Englishman but you might not recognise it from the way he talks. He lived in the USA for almost 25 years before relocating to New Zealand in 2007. Bill has over 40 years experience in IT - in fact he started working with computer systems before they called it IT! His experiences run from start-up businesses to multi-nationals and include designing and running the computer network for a large medical university in Oregon.
Most recently Bill ran a successful mobile computer services franchise operation in the Porirua/Kapiti Coast area. He earned a great reputation for providing quality IT services to home and small business customers. This experience gave Bill the impetus to "go out on his own" and together he and Annie started all over IT Limited in June 2014.
Bill's vision was to create a business providing quality technology services as efficiently as possible. He especially wanted to make sure that the technicians providing the services were recognised and rewarded for their efforts. Bill is very proud that all over IT has become a successful business providing services to homes and small businesses throughout the greater Wellington region. He hopes to continue that success and make all over IT a place where people like to work and enjoy using and developing their technical skills
Annie is a shareholder and director of all over IT Limited, managing operations and ensuring customers calls are handled promptly and efficiently. Her focus is on dispatching technicians around the Wellington region so that customer requirements can be promptly met.
In addition, Annie is responsible for the finance and administration services as well as being out and about promoting the business. With the team of technicians behind her, she is able to use technology to do her job while out on the road.
Annie has a background in accounting, general management and operations, so she understands the business protocols and processes. Chances are it will be Annie who answers the phone when you call, so say “Hi” to her, and let her get the closest technician to help you as soon as possible.
Hayden has been involved with IT for many years and has spent his time recently developing software for Point of Sale applications. Now based in Kapiti, Hayden joined our team in November 2014 to provide technical assistance to the growing numbers of clients living between Paekakariki and Levin.
Hayden has developed a reputation among his customers for being very patient and non-judgmental when dealing with non-tech savvy clients. He explains technology in plain English and this is appreciated by many customers.
Hayden is very active enjoying regular squash games as well as jet skiing and water sports. He shares Bill's passion for renewable energy and electric cars and between them they are trying to work out how to own the latest Tesla!
