How does a small family run business become a world class leader in technology management?
You could technically say we’re an IT support company.
But for the 33 years we’ve been in business, we’ve worked hard to position ourselves to be much more than that.
So, we think differently, act differently, and deliver your technology differently.
And most importantly, we care for our clients differently.
But anytime you mention the word care you run the risk of sounding cliché.
That’s why at Sensible Business Solutions, we think about care as what we do in advance for our clients, because that’s what sets us apart. It’s one reason why we became ISO 27001 certified : the International Standard for Information Security Management.
In order for us to make your business more competitive and efficient with your technology, we ask a simple question that helps guide our systems and processes:
How can we make our client’s lives easier?
As a small business ourselves, we have an affection for SMB’s and think of our clients as business partners and peers.
We’re fueled by our desire to make a difference in their business. And take pride in helping SMB’s increase the efficiency and productivity of their technology because we know the impact it will have on their business results.
Our ideal client is the small and medium sized business (SMB) who relies heavily on technology. Depending on your industry you may have 30 -200 staff. Your management is interested in reliable, secure and integrated IT systems, as well as a business partner and trusted technology advisor.
Working with SMB’s is also rewarding because of our commonalities. It provides an opportunity to share experiences, contacts and lessons we’ve learned with each other like our ability to scale and be efficient as a SMB.
While partnering with small and medium businesses is our “sweet spot”, we have the experience, expertise, systems, and resources to “punch above our weight.”
We’ve done big projects for Football Federation Australia and the University of Sydney and many more. We designed and implemented the Information Technology and Communications Systems for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Stadium, now known as ANZ Stadium.
“I can honestly say that the depth of knowledge, service and professionalism displayed was second-to-none. The Sensible team understood what working to tight deadlines, under pressure was all about.”
David Fletcher | Manager of Information Technology & Communication, Anz Stadium
Regardless of the size of your business, we believe every business has its unique qualities. And that’s why our process ensures we learn about your business, and your priorities.
Because what’s critical to your business is now what’s critical to us.
The more we know about your business and processes, the better we can help you not only become more efficient and productive, but help you leverage your technology and grow.
In other words, we work to align our productivity, with your productivity.
“Sensible went the extra mile to get the job done…”
KJA recently agreed to a replacement of their current server. This involved quite some time explaining the process and benefits, for our non technical staff to understand. The perseverance to work through issues to come to a successful implementation was very much appreciated. From the planning through to the implementation, Sensible went the extra mile to get the job done.
Tony Van Berkel | Business Support Functions Manager – KJA
Another question we’re always thinking about that drives our processes is…
How can we help?
From our experience of partnering with SMB’s since 1985, we know that many have had “less than ideal” experiences in the past dealing with technology or IT support.
So we’ve built complete transparency in our processes and work to alleviate the common concerns and problems SMB’s encounter with IT support.
We deliver on our promises. Period.
We record and save any promise we’ve made to you in our systems. We do it right the first time. No shortcuts.
With our standardisation, documentation, and training, everyone on our team works the same way.
“Our staff was so impressed we gave the Sensible team a standing ovation…”
Due to circumstances, we had to move 40 staff to brand new offices overnight in the middle of the week when we had an A-League Grand Final to host on the following weekend. Not only that, we were changing internet and telephone carriers and moving to a new phone system at the same time!
Sensible Business Solutions did such a magnificent planning and implementation job of all of our technology that we closed at 4pm and were completely operational by 9am the next day.
We were so impressed, that all of our staff gave the Sensible team a round of applause and a standing ovation at the staff meeting that day.
Ian Lewis | CFO – Football Federation Australia
We own every task, project to completion.
If the issue is taking too long to fix and there’s no plan for resolution within 1 hour, the issue is immediately escalated up the chain to be resolved.
“Sensible took the time to go over all our company needs…”
Recently we had a need to upgrade our Server. This is normally a very costly adventure. Sensible took the time to go over all our company needs to make sure that we were not going to spend money on features that we wouldn’t use. The set up was highly organised and we experienced no down time, loss of data or emails. The whole process was seamless.
Natalie Szabo | Customer Service Manager – Mindscape Asia Pacific
We always have a Plan B.
For every service we offer, whether it’s security, disaster recovery, data backup, we have contingency plans.
“Sensible kept persevering until it was resolved..”
We recently had an intermittent hardware failure affecting our aging server that even the manufacturer could not work out. Sensible kept persevering until it was resolved and even managed to get it covered under warranty, that’s why I ensure they manage my IT.

The most advanced technology systems available, paired with personal customised service
Most IT support companies as they scale, focus on delivering cutting edge technology through their automated and systemised processes but often lack the personal attention and responsive care with their clients.
Our systems are designed for personal service – not for volume and dull automation.
We want your technology to feel invisible – not have our team be invisible.
That means you will personally know your Business Technology Advisor. You will personally know your Dedicated Network Administrator. And you can pick up the phone and talk to a live person anytime you need help.
In other words, our team is as visible as you want them to be.
This throwback personal service touch is just one of the reasons why our average client relationship spans 10 years.
Another reason for client longevity…
We work to give back some of your life
We’re ambitious. We don’t settle. Making your technology more reliable and efficient and impacting your business results is not enough for us.
We want our clients to prosper with their business and enjoy their lives.
That means we don’t want you stewing at home after you leave the office. Or worrying about your technology over the weekend.
That’s what we mean by making your technology invisible.
It’s not a burden – it’s a godsend because you can concentrate on your business and what you do best.
And you can feel confident and trust that your IT is quietly and efficiently working in the background managed by professional, experienced technology experts.
But in our quest to make every client’s technology invisible, we can’t be satisfied with being a world class leader in technology management. Because…
We want to be a small giant. Small enough to be nimble, but big enough to deliver.
That means we must keep learning, growing and adapting so we can help your business do the same.
That’s why we regularly schedule training and best practice skill building for our team. And stay current with our industry and overall business environment with memberships and affiliations with relevant International associations.
Because when you succeed, we succeed.
