Glazier Systems was established in Wellington in 1995 by Tony Stewart, Rod Drury, Andrew Kissling and Pat Ryan. It was a software development company that specialised in developing systems for Microsoft Windows hence the name.
In the early days Microsoft Access was the tool of choice. When the internet came in to prominence in the late 90's Glazier began to build system using Active Server Pages.
Glazier grew rapidly until, in 1999, it was acquired by listed company Advantage Group for $7.5 million in cash and shares. At the time Glazier had 55 staff and offices in Wellington and Auckland.
In 2001 Tony Stewart lead a management buyout of the former Glazier Systems Wellington office and formed Intergen. Intergen carried on where Glazier left off and in 2012, Intergen has over 320 staff and offices in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Sydney, Perth and Seattle.
Famous quotes containing the word systems:
“The only people who treasure systems are those whom the whole truth evades, who want to catch it by the tail. A system is just like truths tail, but the truth is like a lizard. It will leave the tail in your hand and escape; it knows that it will soon grow another tail.”
—Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (18181883)
