thingsat is the place where businesses of all sizes get access to the best in class device as a service, advisory and professional services.

We help manage our customers fleet of devices from laptops to tablets and accessories, so they can take control, reduce costs and create a happier workforce.

What else makes us different?

Shifting Away From Traditional Workspace Environments

  • We act as a governance body for our customers to make sure external and internal parties deliver to SLAs.
  • We are vendor agnostic; working for our customers to ensure that the solution is fit for purpose, such as ‘right sizing’ your fleet to reduce your costs.

SOE Management Under Pressure

  • Our single focus is on end user computing support and this specialisation brings expertise.
  • We allow customers to free up internal resources to focus on the core business rather than device and asset management.
  • We can easily scale with your project lifecycle, such as a device refresh project, for a fixed cost or as part of our managed service.

Change your IT device refresh paradigm to better navigate global shipping and delivery bottlenecks

  • An industry leading depth of advisory and professional services experience in end user computing transformation allows thingsat to achieve outcomes faster at a lower cost.
  • We can mitigate issues with end user computing such as during transformation projects.
  • We help customers put the right strategy in place the first time.

What we value

Accountable to deliver

We are focused on delivering results across our business and are accountable for the promises we make.

Integrity is key

We always tell the truth. We constantly strive to do the right thing all the time, no matter who’s watching. We take being the end user compute and collaboration specialist for our customers seriously.

Drive customer success

We work collaboratively with our customers and internal teams to drive great outcomes for their business.

We care for our community and our people

We support and respect each other and look for ways to engage with the wider community. We pursue equality and opportunity for all and ensure everyone’s voice can be heard.

Be bold and innovative

We look for new ways to bring value to our customers and are empowered to think outside the norm and create easier ways to do things.

We are so much more than device and fleet managers.

We care about the people behind the devices and look for ways to get active in our community and support our colleagues and friends.

We believe volunteering to support causes we are passionate about will get us closer to our community, connect us to people and ideas that will positively impact our perspective and enrich the lives of those around us. It’s also a great way to give back to those who have helped support our business.

Our people really enjoy the intangible benefit of giving—we get a unique sense of purpose, a feeling of connectedness and the satisfaction of trying to make the world a better place.

To celebrate #IWD2022, our team decided to support Fitted for Work. @fittedforwork is an Australian, not for profit organisation that assists disadvantaged women.

In June, our CEO Ruy joined other leaders in business, community and government to sleep without shelter on one of the longest nights of the year to help change the lives of Australians experiencing homelessness.

Our people are awesome

We are real, we have fun and we are really good at what we do.
