Engineering-led focus. Scaled services with a proactive approach. Highly strategic expertise.
Parallo’s emphasis on bringing together great people is filtered from the top. In the late 90s the founders of Parallo first worked together for an IT Service Provider based in Auckland. Their paths have interwoven over the years from New Zealand to London and back again. During those years the trio led the way within the IT Services Provider market and brought award winning New Zealand first Cloud Services to market. In 2011 they took a stake in New Zealand’s market leading VMware professional Services business – ViFX to start the Managed Services business unit, managing large complex VMware & Commvault environments. This grew quickly, and in 2014, they added Azure support. In 2017 the business had grown to the point where it made sense to buy out the original ViFX shareholders. This concluded in June 2017, at which point the company re-branded to Parallo and has continued to enjoy significant growth.

Parallo became an accredited living wage employer in 2018. We believe that the minimum wage keeps people in poverty, and in many cases makes it not worth working. If enough businesses sign up to this, we’ll reinforce the requirement for the ecosystem around our businesses to pay a minimum of the living wage, which makes a significant difference to low income earners. If enough businesses sign up, there will be momentum to make it the norm, and we can positively impact the country as a whole.
