Our Team

We’re focused on robust and full implementations of NetSuite and supporting our customers afterwards. We are a service company who wants a long-term, enjoyable and mutually beneficial relationship with our customers. Liberate’s I.T.’s consultant team include:

  • New Zealand and Australian sourced consultants with hands on business experience gained as Financial Controllers, Subject Matter Experts and System Administrators at NetSuite sites.

What our clients are saying

Liberate I.T. were extremely helpful in our NetSuite implementation, taking over a messy situation and delivering results. They came up with an out of the box solution which was hugely beneficial for both parties. Couldn’t recommend them and NetSuite highly enough.

Mark Priscott - Protempo

It has been a pleasure working with Liberate I.T. over the past 7 years. They have great capabilities across NetSuite implementation and consultation, and helped us modernise and transform some very old-fashioned and dysfunctional businesses processes.

Craig Pinker - Noveli

Liberate IT provided excellent training so we could carry out our NetSuite implementation. The knowledgeable and experienced team were quick to understand our business requirements and offer us the most relevant NetSuite advice so we were up and running as seamlessly as possible.

Marina Hirst Tristram - Tasman Bay Food Group
