Our New Branding

We’ve been in business for over 45 years, starting out as Oliquip offering IT hardware and end user support. In the 1980s we diversified into authoring our own accounting software, and then in the 90s we further strengthened our position as a leading technology provider forming partnerships with HP and Microsoft.

Our software portfolio continued to grow with new products being introduced alongside our thriving IT services business. Then in 2017 we entered the cyber security market, launching CyberGuard Technologies.

Today we are a successful multi-faceted technology business. To better reflect the breadth of our services, and our evolution from simply being a hardware provider we have undergone a brand refresh and the group is now recognised simply as “OGL” with individual specialist brands sitting under the OGL Group umbrella.

Within the OGL Group we have 3 specialist divisions; IT Solutions, OGL Software and CyberGuard Technologies. Many of our customers use the services of more than one OGL division, so it’s important that our support, delivery and account management teams work closely together to deliver a first-class service.  Here’s a little more about each of our divisions and how they support our customers:
