Custom Digital – Kristan & Ryan Jones

We love tech, so Custom Digital are our kind of people!! We have worked with Ryan and Kristan for a while now and we love visiting their showroom to look at all the new products and tech they have on offer.

They provide smart automation and multi-media systems for home-owners. ‘Smart’ means a client in Australia can tap into their Wanaka home app to turn the lights on, open a door, close the curtains, turn off the irrigation and turn on the heating – all from across the ditch. Clever huh!

As technology has improved, so too has their service offering; from multi-room audio systems and home theatres to full automation systems that make life easier. They design the plan, source the right products for their clients, install and then help you understand how to use your new system. Their business fits nicely here in the Wanaka market and it has gone from strength to strength over the past few years.

Ryan & Kristan’s love of technology is not limited to their showroom. Their back office also boasts a tidy suite of automated systems. Kristan is a fan of Xero and Fergus, an integrated job management system. During the Covid lockdown Kristan took time to upskill in this area, watching Xero and Fergus webinars, she learnt a lot more about automation of their financials. Post lockdown things have not slowed down. The way they did business changed a little, such as more zoom calls with clients. With people spending more time in their homes, there’s been a noticeable uptick in interest in home automation.

Kristan says: “As our business has grown, we have more curly questions for our accountant, it’s not as simple as a few years ago. I can contact Philippa anytime, she always comes back straight away. The service is exceptional and timely. They’re here to support us.”

The work Kristan and Ryan do is so impressive, the tech is cool and their service is top notch. We love being along for the ride. Here’s to many more years of new technology and smart solutions!
