Our Story

How it all started

The beginning

Small beginnings quickly grew.

Back in 2001, John Cromie started The Virtual IT Department in his lounge room. His heart to assist the IT needs of the Disability and Care sector quickly developed into the Aged Care sector and the realm of Small-Medium Businesses. We now service organisations Australia-wide recognised in providing a relational and reliable IT service.
Twenty years on

Family-owned and committed to our customers.

Twenty years on, we’re still a family-owned business, owned by Liam and Anna Furlong, John’s youngest daughter and her husband. The DNA of service continues to run deep as we commit ourselves to not just being another Managed IT Service Provider, but to building great and enduring IT service partnerships with our incredible clients.
