Who we are

IT Partners are more than just your IT support team; we’re your partner in business.  We specialise in thinking differently and taking a whole business view. That’s why we manage your IT systems and leverage the technology and telecommunications in the way that best supports your business needs, goals, and growth.  Like IT, business is a system of interrelated, moving, changing parts that ultimately – must deliver value. We live this every day, and help you live it too.

IT Partners make a great business partner because:

We are proactive

The IT industry moves fast and we strive to give our clients a commercial advantage. This means we work on staying ahead of the technology curve, and seek ways to bring you along with us. It also means we set up and manage your existing IT with the future in mind.

We add value

We are not interested in technology for technology’s sake. Our focus is on giving you only the systems and solutions that improve your business performance and profitability – and we’ll teach you how to get the most out of them. We show you how your IT services and support can be more than just an overhead – by delivering efficiencies and productivity.

We are responsive

When problems do occur we’ll be on your doorstep, or working remotely, to fix the problem fast, and communicate where we are at with the job. It is our job to minimise IT frustration and disruptions to your business. We also want to know what’s going well, what we can improve, and anything else you might need, we work with you so that we can take action to remove roadblocks and disruption to your business.

Our Team

IT Partners are an experienced team of professionals providing IT support for medium-to-large sized businesses throughout New Zealand, with a focus on the Waikato Region. We make it our priority to understand our client’s business first and foremost, and then fit technology, solutions and services around their needs to deliver outcomes that ‘just work’.

We combine our collective knowledge and expertise to ensure the job is done right the first time, to help your business perform efficiently, productively, and profitably now and into the future.
