Who are we
Clients come to us because we solve complex business challenges through intelligent use of IT. We’re here to help clients set their strategy and then deliver on those decisions.

And because we’re independent, you know you can have confidence that our conclusions meet your needs. For 20 years, organisations of all sizes have trusted our consultants to deliver IT with an impact.
No jargon, no agenda, just straight talking.
Our team has an established track record of delivering lasting change for clients across enterprises, government and emergency services.
The Mason Advisory brand was launched in May 2014, but the business started as Mason Communications in 1993, working with a range of clients from banks to MNOs. The company’s success attracted new owners, Datatec, who created a boutique consulting conglomerate which eventually became a single limited company.
The Mason division shared the company’s values, but not its customer base. So Mason Advisory Limited was created by Datatec to focus on serving clients which are consumers of IT services rather than providers or regulators. We continue to be an associate company of Datatec, a global ICT solutions and services group with revenues of over USD5 billion and operations in over 50 countries, but are now majority owned by our management team.
