We conduct inquiries covering more than a 1,000 topics a year, review hundreds of projects and case studies, and are briefed by all of the major vendors. Most importantly, we track local vendors and channel partners. We know what’s going on locally and bring that local knowledge to your local issues.

All our advisors have been senior ICT executives and have a passion for making sure that technology benefits Australian organisations. Our high-touch service approach enables our clients to develop relationships with advisors, which in turn builds trust and becomes and extension of staff resources, IBRS model includes frequent contact through regular advisor meetings, inquiries, strategic and project reviews.
