eq about us

Our drive is helping businesses thrive

Founded by Nicole Elvy in 2006, Equation was established to help businesses improve productivity through technology, from online accounting and business software to data and job management. Today, we're proud to provide systems solutions and software advisory to clients in New Zealand and throughout the world.

We take the time to understand your organisation and its specific requirements. We get to know you, your teams and how you like to work so we can advise on the most effective solutions to help your business succeed. Above all, we operate with honesty, integrity and discretion. We don't sell any products, instead, we immerse ourselves in your company as if it was our own to enable us to provide recommendations that will lead to the best outcomes.

Nicole Elvy

Nicole has worked alongside many Accountants and Christchurch/Canterbury businesses since 2006 installing and implementing systems such as MYOB and more recently Cloud-based systems such as Xero, Workflow Max and Unleashed Software.

With qualifications in Accounting and Adult Teaching, Nicole has a good understanding of the core elements required not only to implement a system but also to be able to deliver in a manner that you can relate to. This implementation can start from the sales process right through to end of year accounts.

Nicole's experience across a broad spectrum of industries has provided her with valuable problem-solving skills and the ability to adapt programs to suit the needs of the client.

It's not all work and no play. Nicole loves spending time with her hubby Nick and children Tobey and Emi-Lee and on the odd occasion, she will sneak away on a bike race.

Bonnie Hawker
Bonnie Hawker
System Specialist

Bonnie’s passion is systems. She is our systems queen! Prior to coming on board with Equation, Bonnie gained a huge amount of experience with Xero and Workflow Max through working for 12 years in the accounting industry.

As well as her wealth of experience and wicked sense of humour, Bonnie has brought a wide range of skills to Equation. She has a complete understanding of GST and Payroll processes and a strong accounting knowledge. She has valuable skills for system implementation and procedures and loves providing that support to clients.

A keen traveller, Bonnie has visited many countries around the world, and plans to tick a few more off especially on her bike (well the flat ones anyway!)
