Our History

Founded in 1987 in Chatswood, Sydney, mcr has been providing reliable, simple and convenient IT solutions for Government, Corporate and SME’s for over 25 years.

As mcr grew and our reach extended, we relocated our offices to the business hub of North Sydney in 2003. This triggered a period of real growth that still continues. We established our Canberra office in 2008 and our Port Moresby office in 2009. We opened our first Data Centre in 2012 and took our international reach even further into our Singapore office in 2014. As of 2015, mcr boasts an impressive portfolio of over 200 loyal clients across a range of industries.

We have strong alliances with all of the industry leading technology partners, specialising in networking and security, including Cisco, HP, Check Point, and Blue Coat. We believe that our vendor agnostic approach gives us the flexibility to offer best of breed solutions to our clients.

mcr offers a total management solution for your IT infrastructure or a more tailored, specific plan for your network/security or other needs. Our Managed Services business is our pride and focus and continues to go from strength to strength (340% YOY growth).

Simply put, we source and manage IT solutions that boost your performance and solve your problems while saving you time and money. And we understand that reliability, simplicity, convenience and trust are vital in building long-term relationships with our clients.

PNG Story

In 2008, mcr expanded their reach to PNG. We opened two offices in Port Moresby including a fully manned Network Operations Centre. In 2012, mcr opened a state of the art Data Centre located at the Telikom Rumana in Port Moresby.

The company gained several market leading clients and grew rapidly on the back of successes with major companies like Telikom PNG, Air Nuigini, Bank of South Pacific, PNG Ports, Kina Securities, Teacher’s Credit Union and OK Tedi Mining. All of which are big players in their individual fields and an indication of the calibre of client mcr work with every day.

In October 2014, mcr announced it would merge with Allcom PNG to create one of the biggest and most successful ICT providers in that region, AllcomMcr PNG. This merger demonstrates the ongoing commitment to Papua New Guinea and our customers. There are approximately 35 staff employed with the new entity.

The move brought together an impressive partner roster between the two companies. The merged entity will very shortly be the only on the ground Gold Cisco partner in PNG. Other key vendors include Check Point, HP, Blue Coat, VMware, Citrix, Dell, Radware, Oracle, Microsoft, Silver Peak, Storage Craft and Symantec, IBM and Kaspersky, NetApp, EMC, Palo Alto and Apple.

AllcomMcr PNG continues to go from strength to strength in the region. It is committed to excellence in service delivery with stringent ITIL compliant processes and procedures. AllcomMcr PNG can offer innovative technology solutions in the region. We provide highly skilled technical teams and dedicated account managers who have both industry recognised training and certifications coupled with extensive practical experience.

Luke Byer is the Managing Director of the entity with Sam Vakili remaining as Group MD.
