Our Company

ProSouth provides IT solutions for small- to-medium sized organisations and individuals in Otago and Southland. We are locally owned and operated, with active links in the local communities through Business Network International, Rotary, and the Chamber of Commerce.

The Balclutha branch of ProSouth was established in 2002, originally called Computer Solutions and Training. In 2010, ProSouth Dunedin was purchased, adding coverage to the Otago area while still maintaining the ethics and values that were so important to the business.

We pride ourselves on our philosophy of service, quality and value. We offer bespoke, tailored solutions to your IT problems. We listen to what you want and create solutions using a mix of off-the-shelf and customised products to suit your needs.

When you choose ProSouth, you are choosing quality components, systems, and excellent after-sales service. And if something goes wrong, we’ll put it right, and we’ll do it promptly. That’s the ProSouth difference.

Directors

Tony SimpsonDirector
Tony was a secondary school teacher for 27 years, first in Greymouth and then in Balclutha from 1980. He ran the IT department at South Otago High School and developed an interest in computers. The interest in IT turned into a business when he was often asked for IT advice by his peers. The hobby grew to take over his evenings, weekends, and the hallway was often stacked with hardware. At that point, Sue and Tony opened Computer Solutions and Training and Sue was pleased to have her hallway, office, and husband back again. In his spare time, Tony likes fishing, gardening, spending time with his children and grandchildren, and the occasional weekend away in Te Anau.
Sue SimpsonDirector
Sue started her working life as a math teacher. While taking a break to raise their four children, she moved into administrative, accounting and management roles. Her time in roles such as managing the elections and Census for Otago/ Southland mean she has a unique understanding of the local district. In her spare time, Sue loves riding her mountain bike (with the occasional broken collarbone), reading a good non-fiction book, and is a slightly reluctant gardener

Sue is immensely proud of the team at ProSouth and their ability to deliver a quality service to our customers.
