Our Story

Forum is a dynamic managed-services company that provides innovative solutions to business challenges.

We offer a range of services including managed print, IT , business workflow and fleet monitoring solutions, together with organic waste management solutions provided through our environmental division, Forum Enviro. Every solution we offer is designed to enhance business efficiency, productivity and impact. And our solutions are underpinned by our flexible finance arrangements, which enable our customers to access the latest technology, or change technology as their business needs change, without the need for capital outlay.

Forum was born out of the idea that most businesses would prefer to work with a single technology supplier who understands their business. A supplier they can trust. A supplier that takes away the day-to-day headaches to enable them to focus on the running of their business.

Since commencing operations in December 2011, Forum has grown to become a leading national player in managed services, with revenues exceeding $70m. Forum was recognised as a BRW Top 10 Australian ‘Fast Starter’ business in 2014.

Vision

To make business more efficient, increase productivity and reduce environmental impact.

Mission

To be a leading Australian managed-services company delivering a range of innovative technology solutions that enable businesses to access and integrate existing and new technology without the need for capital investment.

Our Identity

Our name is derived from the Latin word Forum, meaning ‘assembly, place for public discussion’, which in modern day terms has been defined as ‘a place of open discussion for expression of ideas’.

Our logo, with its connected hexagonal cells, takes its cue from the internal structure of one of nature’s most highly efficient co-operative working environments – a beehive. The beehive is commonly used as a symbol of industry and co-operation.

It is the combination of these two ideas that signifies the essence of Forum: people and technology working together.
