Devicedesk was formed in 2015 when Anthony Stevens got together with long-time colleagues Joe Savoria and Greg Rudakov, to build a software company that reflected their individual perspectives on the IT industry. Originally pitched as an ‘online shopping portal for the IT department’, Devicedesk went on to find it market-fit in automating the B2B buying/selling experience for some of Australia’s most well-known companies.
“As IT customers, we experienced the pain of ordering business products in contrast with the consumer world. We thought, there must be a more effective way to engage with our IT suppliers when it comes to ordering products and managing service requests. We created Devicedesk to revolutionise the ordering experience for the B2B customer.”
