For over 27 years we have been helping clients

Do you know why we were named F1 Solutions? Because the F1 key on a computer’s keyboard is the help key function of a computer system. That’s right: helping clients with their IT needs was such an integral part of our company’s foundation that it is how our founders decided to name the company.

And while we have grown and evolved in the years since then, our reason for staying in business has always stayed the same – to provide quality software and web solutions, as well as responsive IT support, and help businesses, not-for-profits and government agencies achieve greater success.

Software Development

Powering efficiency, engagement and change

In a business environment fueled by data, software is the engine. F1 Solutions partners with businesses to develop software to suit their requirements and aspirations. However, unlike many developers, we’re also trusted experts in IT infrastructure. We ensure your systems talk to each other.

Engineered to provide value beyond their individual purpose, integrated systems are far more valuable than the sum of their parts. Along the way, staff are engaged as laborious tasks are automated, customers are thrilled by greater consistency, functionality and individualisation, and stakeholders develop entirely new levels of trust.

That’s the power of the holistic approach, and that’s the F1 Solutions way

Managed Services

Put your business in pole position

F1 Solutions makes managed IT services simple, smart and safe with a flexible, all-in-one solution tailored to your requirements and available at a highly competitive, easy to manage, flat per-user fee.

Each plan removes administrative and resource costs and pressures from your business, allowing consistent forecasting, budgeting, cash flow and risk management. We’re your very own IT department, at a fraction of the cost.

Cloud Services

Business anytime. Anywhere. Future proof

With our partners Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure, we bring the power of the cloud to organisations seeking highly scalable, low-cost solutions that offer entirely new ways of working.

F1 Solutions manages the design, architecture, migration, integration and hosting. Along the way we ensure it all happens without interruption to current workflows. And we walk the talk – our own business is run within the AWS and Azure clouds.

Systems Integration

Let data drive your success

To realise the true power of data, as all leading businesses are doing, systems integration is essential. Systems that don’t speak with each other to share vital information can’t provide critical insight, make customer experience consistent across all touchpoints, or be automated to save staff from arduous, low-value tasks.

As experts in software development and IT infrastructure, we take care of your integration needs holistically, ensuring interoperability of hardware, software and telecommunications. And we make it easy!

The result, a future-proofing of the organisation, is truly transformational.

Software as a Service

Leaders in innovation

Sophisticated software built and managed by F1 Solutions, under our OmniStar brand, is now the leading SaaS applications in the multi-billion dollar grants, ethics and research industry.

As a result of massive implementation of this platform across numerous institutions, including the Federal Government agency NHMRC, state health departments including South Australia Health and New South Wales Health (NSW), and universities such as the University of New South Wales (UNSW), University of Western Australia (UWA) and University of Queensland (UQ), we have deep, specialist knowledge around grants, ethics and research management.

We bring innovative ideas and solutions that are imagined and designed in-house to industry, helping organisations scale safely, adapt to new environments and meet constantly increasing customer expectations.

It has been fantastic working with F1 Solutions. Their key people took time to gain good understanding of the business and the challenges we face, and recommended ideas and solutions to take us forward.
