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?

We are independent

  • 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.

We are specialists

  • 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.

We’ve got a solid track record

  • 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


We collaborate with our customers and our internal teams to produce great outcomes.


We take ‘Control with Clarity’ for our customers seriously. We always tell the truth.


We engage with the wider community and pursue equality and opportunity for all.


We support and respect each other and ensure everyone’s voice can be heard.


We look for new ways to bring value to our customers 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.

Community service

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.

Our people are awesome

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