Innovation Takes Centre Stage to Bring iWorkplace to Australia

Information Leadership and Professional Advantage Partner to Bring iWorkplace to Australia

Empowering Australian organisations with leading edge compliance tools for Microsoft 365

November 22, 2023

New Zealand’s Information Leadership and Australia’s Professional Advantage recently announced a strategic partnership to bring iWorkplace to Australia. Both award-winning providers of Microsoft 365 Digital Workplaces, the partnership will give Australian organisations access to Information Leadership’s iWorkplace suite.

Actively used by over 100 customers around New Zealand, iWorkplace is a proven information protection and compliance solution that harnesses the power of Microsoft 365. Taking advantage of Microsoft’s suite of productivity tools allows iWorkplace to achieve effective content storage and management, automated metadata tagging, sensitivity labels, case file management, and more.

The partnership is a result of long-held relationships and Information Leadership’s goal to expand to Australia. Professional Advantage were a natural choice in partner with their aim to extend their Microsoft 365 offerings. By leveraging the iWorkplace suite, Professional Advantage can make achieving data governance and compliance at scale easier, cost effective, and more user-friendly, for its clients in government, financial services, insurance, not-for-profit, and health care industries.

“We intended to expand our market beyond what we had established in New Zealand, and we wanted a proven, qualified, and trusted Microsoft Solutions Partner in Australia to help us achieve that. Professional Advantage stood out for us in that area with their track record of success over the past thirty years,” said Director of Information Leadership Sarah Heal. “To be able to join forces with Professional Advantage and help thousands of information and records managers, compliance managers, IT security officers, and SharePoint administrators in Australia make their jobs easier is an opportunity we are grateful to have.” 

“When you think about the countless government and commercial organisations that can benefit from having better control and confidence in managing and governing their information with Microsoft 365 and SharePoint, you begin to understand the impact this partnership will have in the market,” said Derek Rippingale, Managing Director of Professional Advantage. “This partnership brings our clients the advantages of the technological innovation powered by the Microsoft cloud, Information Leadership’s deep industry experience, and PA’s vast expertise in implementing SharePoint. I am thrilled to partner with and work alongside an award-winning organisation like Information Leadership.”  

Information Leadership look forward to working with Professional Advantage and supporting them to bring iWorkplace to Australian customers. Watch this space for further announcements.
