ABOUT US

New Zealand's most practical IT consultancy

We place people first and work in highly pragmatic ways, right-sizing approaches to New Zealand’s conditions. 

Since 1995 we have been helping organisations succeed by applying fresh thinking and proven expertise to solve tough business challenges.

In the same way the equinox is the balance between night and day, our brand Equinox represents the balance between business and technology, theory and practice, development and delivery.

Pragmatic IT consultancy
Delivering results together

Delivering pragmatic results together

Every day, we encounter the natural beauty and expansive coastline of New Zealand. And like our weather, the world is becoming increasingly unpredictable.

We assist our clients in responding, adapting and flourishing in this new reality. Our pragmatic approach involves tailoring our methods to suit our client's unique conditions.

We emphasise people and make it a priority to be approachable and easy to work with.

At the same time, we maintain a steadfast commitment to delivering exceptional results for our clients and the communities they serve.

It starts with people

We believe that any successful outcome starts with people, which is why we focus on creating the right environment for your and our people to thrive.

At Equinox IT we take a human-centred approach to our work, focusing on co-creation, coaching, training and knowledge sharing.

We see ourselves as quite different from other technical consultancies where technology often comes first.
