Client success has always been our future, along with our passion for people and their lives at work.
Since its birth in Sydney, Australia, in 2017, Conekt Australia has been a catalyst for future-centred technologies and workplace innovation.
With little under half a century of experience between partners, Alex Pinkerton and John Blankevoort's decision to bring Conekt's offering of workplace utopia to the World was just what the industry needed.
The company that delivers Australian companies with cutting-edge technologies was born in an iconic restaurant in Sydney, Australia on May 8, 2017. Although launched at this time, Conekt's global vision of individualising workplaces evolved from years of experience. Since 2001, the partners were simultaneously refining their knowledge of workplace solutions in their individual industries. John Blankevoort, a corporate sales specialist, and Alex Pinkerton, an accomplished technologies advisor, have over 40 years of combined industry experience.
As they developed the companies' business model in 2016/17 the common vision produced what we now know as Conekt Australia. Their partnership allowed for the integration of their strengths, values, and virtues to better deliver solutions to their loyal clients and corporate agencies.
This future-focused approach to workplace technology allowed Conekt to align itself and partner with leading industry companies. Conekt's principal partnerships and long-term relationships with Konica Minolta, Mitel, and UiPath empowered their teams' focus to produce Industry-led solutions. Conekt's "one supplier, with hundreds of possibilities" is a concept that persists to echo in the companies ethos. Conekt's first clients and continuing clients view Conekt as their supplier for 'everything'.
Alex and John thought their company name should reflect the companies' point of difference. This is when Conekt with a 'k' was developed. The infinity symbol was part of the branding's representation of the infinite number of individualised solutions and possibilities Conekt can (and would) deliver. Later on, the globe was introduced to demonstrate our global affiliations and how communication was transversing Australia's shores.
Conekt Australia's first promotional campaigns were launched to inform industry professionals that they were one of the most individualised managed service providers in Australia. During the first year, sales boomed and in late 2018 Conekt was awarded Number 1 Konica Minolta Reseller of the year and was recognised as the 3rd Fastest growing IT Service Provider in 2019 by FAST50.
Their loyal partners have aligned with their philosophy from the very beginning and these same partnerships have allowed for growth to include the most sought-after opportunities as official resellers with companies like UiPath, Konica Minolta, and more. Conekt gradually added more high-profile and large-scale multinational companies to their portfolio and today some of their most prestigious clients have engaged with Conekt to distribute to international offices.
The Conekt team acts with a thrive-and-growth mindset and believes in the process of continuous learning that improves our business and ourselves. The company culture has four focuses; these being Agility, Empowerment, Support, and Engagement.
Conekt follows an ethics code. Every day, their autonomous team makes a positive impact on the lives of their clients. Their meaningful work to improve the workplace of others starts first in their own office. Conekt team members continuously improve their workplace, they understand that their connection to technology is a privilege, and in doing so they are able to learn and grow authentically by implementing their individual aspirations with organisational goals.
