More About Us


Business Areas


Hire Intelligence has always maintained a predominant focus on the business of short-term computer rentals. Renting computers to people with a short-term need is what we excel at. However, we strive to be more than just a computer rental company. We aim to be a total technology rental solutions provider. That's why we're continually expanding our business - never shifting our main focus, simply complimenting it with further products and services to meet and in fact exceed the expectations of our clients.

That's why we really are the intelligent choice in computer rentals.

Computer Equipment Hire :

Computer equipment hire - Whether it's for a day, week, month or year, Hire Intelligence can provide for rental, the latest technology in desktop computers, notebooks, servers, printers, data projectors, scanners, monitors, faxes, copiers and more! Our international chain of outlets means that we have the resources to cater for any job, no matter how large or small. Our technical specialists can deliver and install all the equipment onsite, and even collect it all again at the completion of the rental if need be, making it so simple and easy for our clients.

Video Conferencing :

Video Conferencing - With today's broadband technology, videoconferencing has become a very real option for many businesses whether they need to communicate with someone in the next suburb, city or country. However, why outlay the capital to purchase a videoconferencing system that may become outdated and obsolete quickly? And do you have the technical resources to set the equipment up every time you need to use it? Take advantage of the in-house videoconferencing facilities at selected Hire Intelligence outlets. The latest technology installed and ready for you to use at a cost that won't prove prohibitive. Can you afford not to consider it? Buy your own video conferencing equipment from Hire Intelligence. We retail the full range of Polycom products, the market leader in video conferencing equipment.

Training Room Rental :

Training Room Rental - If you hold your own in-house training courses, why not use the convenience of the fully equipped training rooms at selected Hire Intelligence outlets? Set up with networked computers and with the option to have data projectors, electronic whiteboards, laser printers and other equipment, the training rooms will make your course an instant success. Of course, there's no need to be worried about mechanical failure or technical difficulties because our training rooms are fully supported by onsite technicians. Now that's intelligent.

Data Projector :

Data Projector - Make your next presentation something special with the aid of our top quality data projectors. They are light and easy to carry and even easier to set up and operate. Planning on making a PowerPoint presentation. Ensure it is a bright clear presentation even in well-lit rooms with our state of the art data projectors.
