What Our Clients Say

5 Stars
The biggest benefit of engaging Motivate IT to help with our move to Microsoft Office 365 is how much easier it is to now access information and collaborate within the business. Their approach and support gives me complete peace of mind, and the consultants at Motivate IT have been exactly what we were looking for and more. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an IT business that will deliver excellent customer service and highly efficient solutions

In just 3 months Motivate IT has changed technology at Blackmans Bay Childrens Services. Previous systems were unreliable and time consuming and we were constantly being reactive instead of proactive with our systems. Since starting with Motivate IT, whenever there is an IT issue it feels like we have our own IT department on hand to resolve problems quickly without all the tech jargon. It’s now exciting the number of ways we can use technology to further improve our services with a good solid IT platform in place

Cyber Hair have been Motivate IT clients for many years and have been extremely happy with the service provided. Always available with just a phone call away, offering professional advice as technology evolves and implementing the necessary changes to keep us up to the minute to avoid falling behind. When we have had issues they are readily available once called to come in either remotely or in person if necessary to fix the problem. They also work with our software company to support us when changes happen. With our recent renovations they dismantled an reassembled our whole IT systems in the anticipated time frames, allowing us to be ready to go as expected. We highly recommend Chris Bresnehan and his team at Motivate IT.

When not in the office you can find me down at the local CrossFit box, caravanning around the countryside or performing my duties as “Dance Dad” for my two daughters.
