About Us

Respiro is an IT infrastructure consultancy company that provides experienced resources to organisations to allow them to enhance and bolster their internal capabilities to deliver infrastructure projects. We pride ourselves in having the best resources, with years of experience, to aid our customers in achieving their IT outcomes. We think of ourselves as an IT “enhancing” service provider. We have been around since 2002.

What sets us apart is that our model is to primarily provide the best IT infrastructure architects in the market on short and part time basis to organisations to allow them to succeed in delivering IT projects. We understand from our collective years of experience that sometimes a program of work would have achieved a faster outcome if it would have been possible to have had access to a skilled and experienced resource “as required’ during certain times over the life of a project. This is the benefit that Respiro delivers to the market. “On tap” access to the skills your organisation or project may be missing when you need them most.
