We trust this partnership will deliver improved client outcomes and enables clients to leverage a wider range of local skills and SOCO services.”

SOCO has teams located in every state and have offices across major Australian cities, including Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. Effective February 2024, SOCO will begin delivering remote and onsite technical services during regular business hours, along with Priority 1 after-hours support to Altia’s clients.
