Our story

The ‘About us’ bit that’s really about you

You might look at our business today, supporting 4,000 users for a growing 150-strong client-base spanning Australia and think, ‘Those guys make it look easy’.

What you don’t see is the blood, sweat and (yes) tears we’ve poured into our business since we started out in 1996. 

Born of frustration

Today, we’re a managed IT services provider, but we didn’t start out that way. In the beginning, our founders saw lots of businesses under stress, struggling to equip their offices effectively, and stepped up to provide office solutions (hence our name). Faxes, copiers, office supplies, the whole deal.

It was only later, in 2000, when IT became the major pain point for clients, that the ‘IT’ was added.

Why is this important? Because it reveals the heart of our business.

“We used to get bogged down with IT all the time, but it isn’t an issue anymore. We have a great IT Manager who keeps us up to date, but basically takes care of everything for us."

Evolving with – and for – our clients

From day one, our business has been all about enabling other businesses to realise their potential. It has been about understanding our clients’ pain and frustration, and taking it away.

Have we always got it right? Not at all. But we have always believed that it’s OK to make mistakes, as long as we own them, learn from them and make amends for them. And on the whole, our clients agree. That’s why so many of our clients from the early days are still with us today.

WE CARE

We’re a considerate, reliable, attentive and supportive bunch by nature.

WE’RE HONEST

WE LOVE GROWTH

We get a kick out of it. Yours and ours. They’re two sides of the same coin.

WE HAVE FUN

Unless you enjoy what you do – and your clients do, too – what’s the point?
