Since 2004 TechFlare has been helping companies transform using technology. We are business transformers! We get companies ahead and keep them ahead. We do this by being thought leaders and consultants, implementing services and technologies through good project reputation of being tenacious, creative and available.
A big reason for our success over the years in building a business up is our passion for technology and the inner desire to help others through support and service. Technology can be an outstanding competitive advantage for business but equally so it can be a terribly frustrating tool when it fails to work or works badly. TechFlare prides itself in helping its clientele overcome these challenges through consistent services and a dedication to getting results. We love to help!
From the beginning the team behind TechFlare has put its innate curiosity to affect in chasing down solutions for customers and discovering how technology can better business and better people. We have spent years advising others on the best strategies and solutions most of which has been done complimentary and part of our partnership with our clientele. We have also been very committed to being a socially aware business providing many charities with funding and expertise. On top of this TechFlare has been an incubator for young engineers and technicians to find their stride in an ever changing market. At the heart of this business is a desire to service and a willingness to explore and drive change.

How do you find an expression or phrase that sums up a company? TechFlare’s mission statement and purpose brought together so many unique values that it is impossible to come up with something that really says it all. At least that’s what we thought. And then out of nowhere came Embrace Technology. Two words that says so much.
We are a technology business and how better to express how we feel about this wonderful market and how we think business should utilise or handle it. In our opinion there is no other way in tackling the world of technology other than to go all in. To thrust out both hands and hold on. To jump into the deep end. We also love the idea of the word embrace. After all it’s such a human word. A word that connects us. A word that really describes how partnerships should be done. Embrace Technology! Embrace Technology with TechFlare.
Awards. There is nothing like receiving recognition for a job well done or extraordinary results. Whilst we don’t pretend to be the best marketers out there or applicants for these things it is nice when we receive one. In fact over the years the best rewards we have received have been the praise from our clients. For the most part good technology providers are neither seen or nor heard of. Things just keep running. We still like awards though.
Not bad for a little company that started in an attic in Western Sydney only a few years ago.
There is no doubt our vendor partners are a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to delivering on behalf of our clients. Whether large or small, global or national, hardware or software; our partners are critical to our service delivery. From Telstra and their robust network, to the excellence and consistency of HP, through to the critical role that Microsoft plays in underpinning a solution; TechFlare strives to work hand in hand with partners to provide complete solutions.
We select our vendor partners on the basis of their technology suites and the manner in which they conduct business. Whilst financial success is important, we know that working with the right partners and their products has to come first in the continual pursuit of serving our customers and providing excellent service.
For more than 12 years TechFlare has worked hard on picking the right partners. Whilst we haven’t always found the right partners straight away, we are very proud of the many successful partnerships we have built over the years.
In this day and age the choices are greater than ever and the responsibility of getting the right technology mix is even more pressing. It is clear that service providers are spoilt with choice. From a range of open source technologies right through to robust commercial products with years of operation; TechFlare faces an increasing demand to invest in the right technologies on behalf of our clients.
At the forefront of our choices is working with Microsoft to deliver their expanding range of solutions on the back of the Windows and Active Directory environment. Partnering with Microsoft, means TechFlare has the capacity to deliver an end to end solution for most clients.
HP has delivered for a long time to the market and TechFlare has spent a lot of time building solutions around the HP suite. This covers everything from the server range, storage, desktop, mobility and point of sale.
Key to our success is reliability and consistency. TechFlare has invested heavily in Telstra for these reasons. The behemoth Australia national has a world class infrastructure and network and leveraging this has been key in delivering on cloud strategies and consistent up time in managing environments.
