Tisco - the ter­res­trial in­no­va­tors

Central Leader - - Sport -

The name Tisco has been syn­ony­mous with TV and elec­tron­ics ser­vic­ing since 1959 - and to­day is still re­garded as THE tech­nol­ogy in­nova- tion ser­vice com­pany, ser­vic­ing vir­tu­ally ev­ery brand of elec­tronic prod­uct sold here.

Most peo­ple as­so­ciate Tisco with TV ser­vic- ing; in­deed they sup­port, ser­vice and in­stall most brands and sup­port ex­tend war­ranty in­sur­ers for tele­vi­sions, LCD, plasma, pro­jec­tion the­atre sys­tems and Free­view com­pli­ant Som­met brand set top boxes. But they are equally ac­tive in­stalling and ser­vic­ing com­put­ers - PCs, mon­i­tors, print­ers, scan­ners and other pc pe­riph­er­als - along with se­cu­rity sys­tems, CCTV, ac­cess con­trol and voice-over IP tele­phone sys­tems.

Re­cently Tisco cen­tralised its Auck­land op­er­a­tions in a high-tech cen­tre in One­hunga and ser­vices all of Auck­land through its mo­bile tech­ni­cians and au­tho­rised agents. The com­pany pro­vides daily pick-up and de­liv­ery through this cen­tralised ops cen­tre/show­room in Church St.

As the first ‘port of call’ for tele­vi­sions and other elec­tronic prod­ucts re­quir­ing re­fur­bish­ment or re­pair, the show­room al­ways has a stock of sec­onds - th­ese are in full work­ing or­der, come with a war­ranty, and are at­trac­tively priced.

Tisco NZ manag­ing di­rec­tor Ken Shilling says Tisco’s cen­tral­i­sa­tion has brought a new de­mand for tech­ni­cians.

“The com­pany is cur­rently looking to em­ploy more ex­pe­ri­enced ser­vice tech­ni­cians who meet the ‘Tisco stan­dard’ of tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise and ser­vice,” he says. An­other ap­point­ment will be made for a counter/ phone/sales as­sis­tant.

Tisco is the exclusive ser­vice agent for the Som­met range of Free­view ter­res­trial set top boxes, hav­ing played a tech­ni­cal role in the es­tab­lish­ment of Free­view tech­nol­ogy in New Zealand.

While the lat­est tech­nol­ogy TVs have this tech­nol­ogy in­stalled within the sets, it is es­ti­mated that there are still over 200,000 flat screen TVs in New Zealand re­quir­ing set top boxes to re­ceive Free­view.

Tisco is also a lead­ing sup­plier and in­staller of af­ford­able se­cu­rity sys­tems for 24/7 sur­veil­lance of premises, and has come up with the per­fect pack­age for small busi­nesses who
