Information and communication technology (ICT) company R-Group International this month celebrates its 15 year anniversary.
R-Group (then Remote Network Administration Services) was founded early 2000 by Director Chris Markovic. The company started as a Managed Service Provider utilising highly innovative proprietary software that enabled remote administration of computer networks over the Internet. For its time such software was ground breaking and gave the company an edge in the marketplace. Managing Director Josh Newton joined the company mid-2004 and has helped to lead the organisation through some challenging economic times through to now.
Today, R-Group has established itself as a significant ICT provider in Western Australia with a range of noteworthy achievements. For example R-Group was responsible for successful delivery of digital signage and networking for the Perth Arena and holds contracts with a range of bluechip clients such as Fortescue Metals Group and Apache Energy. In addition R-Group maintains a range of strong industry partnerships with global organisations such as Microsoft, Polycom, Interactive Intelligence, HP and Huawei.
R-Group now provides a ranges of services in complementary areas including Microsoft Lync unified communications, contact centre, IT managed services, ICT projects and digital signage and entertainment systems.
Mr Newton said, “This is a significant milestone for any company and we are proud to have grown and evolved over this time”.
“The last 15 years have been filled with challenges, achievements and growth. It’s great to look back and see how far R-Group has come from its early days.
“A clear measure of our success comes down to our dedicated personnel without whom we would not have been able to achieve the remarkable things we have.
“This industry demands that you be committed to innovation and vision which is something that we have been able to deliver time and time again. The future is going to be very exciting for R-Group.” Mr Newton said.
