Director, Chris Newman
Founder and Director Chris Newman began his journey working his way through the trenches of I.T. Help Desks during the dot-com bubble of the 90s in Washington D.C., advancing into technology roles in the U.S. government after the terrorist attacks of 9-11 through Northrop Grumman's Aerospace division.
In Australia, Chris has worked in I.T. industries of banking, mining, and energy as a system engineer, security specialist, and network administrator. Working in large government and corporate environments in the USA and Australia has provided Chris with a broad and comprehensive I.T. work experience built upon customer care and adapting with technology as it evolves.
In the 2000s with the advent of cloud computing, businesses small and large have had to update their I.T. infrastructure or risk being left behind by their competitors. Starting as a sole trader consultant in 2010 and then incorporating Nephological in 2015, Chris' idea was to help small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) bridge their technology gaps and help SMBs update and adapt to cloud computing platforms such as Google Business Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure. This is at the core of Nephological, helping organizations move from the then into the now.
In Australia, North America, Africa, and Asia, Nephological helps businesses ranging from a 1 person operation to multinational corporations with all of their I.T. and support needs. Whether small or big, old or new, helping our clients leave behind the past and transition to cloud computing is exactly what Nephological is about.
Nephological has helped solve every kind of IT problem for me over the last 5 years, from new hardware to a lost phone recovery to everything Google. As an independant film and game producer it is essential to have immediate global help in every time zone. Can't say enough good things here.❞
SMART Business Solutions
I have been using Chris for over 10 years now. When I started it was just me, and has grown to 18 team members across 3 offices. Chris is very proactive and responsive and I have recommended him to many clients who are also very happy with his services. Thanks Chris!❞
Nepho saved me when I had an email 'black out' because I was trying to maintain my own IT. Chris acted quickly to get me back up and running. Now I leave the IT to these guys. Definitely recommend!❞
Nephological provides all our remote I.T services on a consistent and affordable basis. I.T. support, digital marketing, Google Apps for Work administration, they do it all. Nephological is an appreciated member of the Altus Team, even though we are based in California and Nephological is an Australian service provider. With Google Apps for Work and cloud computing, this geographical separation means very little in the virtual world. Nephological is always an email, instant message, or phone call away when we need them.❞
We were so excited when we found Chris to be part of our small business! As complete IT novices we were constantly having troubles and had no one to ask or give us help. Chris firstly came on board to fix up email and website issues we had that were created by a incompetent SEO company! Not only did he fix all those issues - he did a complete IT overhaul for us to set us up right and showed us so many tips and tricks to get us working smarter not harder. Even guidance on buying a new laptop to replace a 10 year old Mac computer that was dying! We just want to get on with the day to day running of our business and Nephological has enabled us to do that and give us the guidance we need if we do have any IT problems big or small. Chris is honest, friendly and very professional and always helpful in explaining and breaking down the steps so we understand. Would not hesitate to recommend Nephological to anyone.❞

Unreal service and skills! Nephological has been an integral part of my business's formation, providing a progressive Google for business solution spanning Google email for business, integrated Streak project management (LOVE IT), Google My Business creation, cloud storage support and related *awesome* technical tuition and so much else. The extent of knowledge Chris and team have is exceptional. So too is the willingness to go over and above in every interaction. Chris literally saved my bacon recently with trivial IT conundrum I couldn't solve while driving from the airport with his mother in law! Not only have I felt I could always rely on Nephological's expertise and speed, but I've learned so much along the way which has been deeply rewarding and fun. You gotta get these guys on board as part of your support team. Seriously. It will BLOW YOUR MIND.❞
