Updated StorageCraft Pricelist
As previously mentioned, StorageCraft have updated all of their part numbers so in turn we have updated ours - sorry for any work this causes, but it's all about being consistent between our system and theirs. As part of this change they have also removed the three-year maintenance options, if a customer wants multi-year maintenance you now order multiples of the one-year code. Previously the Desktop edition was only available as a three-year purchase, now it is only available as a one-year purchase. Another change for Desktop, where there used to be one-pack, three-pack and five-pack, there is now just a continuous price bank of 1 to 19 nodes. A reminder also that ImageManager iFTP and Headstart Restore is now free. Pricing on the server and virtual licenses is otherwise unchanged. You can download a new pricelist from this link.

3CX Training Response
Thank you to everyone who turned up to Matt's basic training sessions around 3CX in Auckland and Tauranga recently. Lots of note taking was good to see, and we like that you showed a lot of interest around selling 3CX more to customers. We like doing these training sessions for 3CX (and StorageCraft and ManageEngine) - we know that the personal interaction is vastly superior to online as you can ask questions as they occur to you. Advanced and Cloud training for 3CX is coming up next month in Auckland. Click here for the full list of dates.

Self-Flying Hover Camera
The Hover doesn't look like your traditional drone or quad copter. It's roughly the size of a thick book and unfolds to reveal wings, with 2 panels each containing propellers in metal caging. It is lightweight and made from carbon fibre, but sturdy and can be folded to stow away easily in a backpack or carrying case. The Hover is not made for faraway travel or high altitude aerial videography, as there is no GPS or built in tracking, it's supposed to be used as a personal selfie cameraman that maintains flight and follows the user at a safe distance. It is built around a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, with a camera that can shoot 13 megapixel photos & 4K video at 30 frames per second.
