Our Story

asp - Application Service Provider, first began as a retail software store in Glenelg, South Australia. Running 7 days a week providing retail software with a try before your buy model. Soon moving into PC hardware, and then in 1999 creating our first cloud server.

With a client running both Adelaide and Sydney offices with no connectivity between them and a twice weekly zip disk backup posted between. asp saved them $500 per month by enabling both Adelaide and Sydney offices to connect to the same MYOB file at the same time.

asp have since evolved into managed services and managed cloud markets, with a national client base providing round the clock support.
