Queensland-based IT Managed Service Provider ADITS will “plug into Springfield City’s growing tech-vibe” when its new office officially goes online on Friday, May 28.
The company, which supports more than 700 businesses – and 13,000 users – nationally, is opening an office in Springfield’s Health City.
ADITS senior advisor Adam Cliffe said the new office would employ six staff and “build on the company’s growing presence in the booming region”.
“Our aim is to help customers manage every IT facet of their business – from simple requests such as changing your password, all the way through to complete infrastructure upgrades,” Mr Cliffe said.
“We already have a presence in Townsville and Bowen, and now Springfield Central will be our base for south-east Queensland.
“We’re excited about moving to Springfield Central, because we believe in the vision of Springfield City Group (SCG), the developers of the master-planned community.
“We think it is going to be the next CBD – away from the Brisbane CBD. We did look at setting up in Brisbane, but the issue with traffic congestion was a real deterrent.
“Springfield really ticks a lot of boxes for us – it’s got the growth, a youthful vibe, a tech-vibe – and a good community feel about it.”
Mr Cliffe said the new office would deal with customers from Brisbane, Ipswich, the Gold Coast and as far north as the Sunshine Coast.
“Being based in Health City is important, because it will allow us to better service our growing customer base in the health industry,” he said.
“It’s interesting because while COVID-19 impacted businesses, it had the opposite effect on our industry – the number of our clients actually increased.
“With more employees working remotely from home, comes the technology and infrastructure changes that companies generally hadn’t planned for – and that’s where we come into the equation”.
Springfield City Group’s (SCG) Director – Commercial Development, Umah Ranchigoda said she was pleased to welcome ADITS to Health City – a 52-hectare integrated health precinct which is already home to the Mater Private Hospital Springfield and Aveo seniors’ accommodation.
She said ADITS would be perfectly positioned to tap into growth opportunities in Springfield, where the population of 46,000 is expected to triple over the next two decades.
“Springfield is one of Australia’s fastest growing regions, and the population has an average age of 29,” she said. “Businesses like ADITS will certainly help underpin this growth and the development required to cater for increasing demand.”
