Parashift

Local attention,
global reach.

At Parashift, the term ‘Paradigm Shift’ is more than just the inspiration behind the name, it’s the differential that sets our business apart as a global, leading edge, business solutions provider.

The Parashift difference is simple, yet effective. We are client and solutions focused.


Client centric is all too commonly promised, and regrettably rarely experienced. The measure of Parashift’s commitment to its clients is demonstrated through the delivery of customized, integrated, IT solutions that extend beyond the obvious problems, to challenges that have not yet become apparent.


This approach has been the core to our success since our founding in 2013 and has resulted in an enviable position of products and services and a growing list of satisfied clients, here in Australia, Asia, Europe, and the Americas.


At Parashift, we do not claim to be the right solution partner for everyone. Our approach is most effective when we partner with clients who share our values and are in sync with our affirmations. If you find yourself agreeing with these, we would love to work together.

Mission

We provide excellence in information management strategy, consulting and solutions.

Cultural Values

Client Centric

You, the client, are what we are all about.

Excellence

Driven by the knowledge that perfection is a journey that never ends.

Ownership

Make no excuses – own it or die trying.

Elegant

Design solutions should be simple to implement and effortless in use.

Passion

It’s not a job, when you love what you do.

Affirmations

Choice

On premise, in the cloud, or both. You choose what is best for your needs.

Agile

It is hard to make the best decisions if you don’t know what you don’t know. Why not develop as you go? Set the pace and direction, and at the end of each stage, you have a production-ready system.

Mobility

Four walls and ten years ago, the iPhone changed everything. Actually, it’s a little longer than that, but what a great world it is.

Open Source & Open Standards

Believe in your code. Through open standards, sunlight is the best disinfectant. No proprietary darkness accepted.

Cross Platform

No room for bias here. Organisations need their systems to work in a Windows environment as well as they do in Mac OS or Linux.

Dog Food

We too are a client of Parashift, we use what we sell.
