IT Leaders was founded in 2002 as an IT support provider to the SME sector.
Over subsequent years it grew in size and locations, to now have a national footprint, with clients in QLD, NSW, VIC and WA.
We discovered that by cutting our teeth in the very competetive SME sector, that we had developed products, systems and an ethical and results-driven culture which allowed us to blitz the vast majority of competitor corporate IT firms.
With an efficiency born from delivering cost effective results to our SME clients, and the latest client support technology now integrated into our business, we expanded our corporate client portfolio and continue to do so.
In 2009 we saw the future and took another leap forward by building our own Private Cloud infrastructure, at a time when cloud adoption was extremely low. The result is that we utilise no third parties in our Cloud platform, and deliver top-grade solutions that are fully hosted on Australian soil.
IT Leaders utilises best-practice methodology for supporting clients, complete with SLA-escalated ticketing system, and a fully equiped and skilled Support Desk team with a notable absence of low skill staff who can be frustrating. We have no one on team with less than 5 years experience. It costs a little more to do it this way, but we wont participate in the race to the bottom, where price is considered more important than effectiveness. We instead build robust business systems that create efficiency, in order to keep our prices reasonable.
Our organisation utilises world-leading network monitoring, reporting and management tools and demonstrations of this technology often astound and impress CIOs.
Our key focus for the years ahead is to provide dynamic IT outsourcing services to the enterprise market, with a particular focus on organisations that rely heavily on technology and are risk-averse.
Our suite of products and services is designed specifically to assist you in leveraging your human resources to achieve the best productivity and lowest risk.
