Episode details

In 1980, MAGIQ software was founded...it started with three brothers who had an inkling about the potential of computers to help solve difficult problems.

Over the next 30 years, they developed and grew their business and software product.

"We decided that these companies really needed some packaged software. Our theme was to alight upon something that would be difficult for others to do."

Now, their local government software is used in Australia, the US and in New Zealand...

…and it all started before most New Zealanders had even touched a personal computer.
