About PC Locs

Hear from Paul and James Symons, the dynamic father-son duo who founded and grew a global technology company that's determined to solve challenges for schools and businesses who are managing and using mobile device technology.

What we do.

PC Locs is an innovative company combining the power of software and hardware to revolutionise the way organisations are managing tablets, laptops, Chromebooks, phones, and other physical assets. Our mission is to ensure organisations aren't losing critical working or learning time due to broken, lost, or forgotten devices by providing device accountability and instant access.  

During our 25 years of experience, we have listened to many of the challenges highly-successful organisations face when rolling out, evolving, or scaling technology. We understand that relentless device exchanges and loans, inefficient daily device check out/in, unsecured storage, and unreliable charging are ravaging time and tech budgets.

We exist to solve these ever-growing problems by offering an efficient hardware access management process to ensure mobile devices are always accessible and ready to go when needed. Our portfolio of Smart Locker Systems, Charging Trolleys with Baskets, and Compact Charging Stations will automate, if not eliminate, many frustrations stemming from digital transformation.

So, whether managing mobile device technology, or using it to work or learn, PC Locs solutions will not only save you time, money and resources, they will also make life easier.


The PC Locs Story

PC Locs started with very humble beginnings. Australian educator, Paul Symons, founded PC Locs in 1998 when he noticed a need for securing computers in his school. He started by building desktop computer lockdown kits in his backyard shed and installing them in a handful of schools in Western Australia. After successfully deterring theft, word spread quickly throughout Australia. Demand for his products grew to the point where Paul left his teaching job and fully committed to inventing new products that solved mobile device charging, storing, securing and transporting challenges for schools.

Paul's son, James, has been involved in the family business since the early days. From hand making lockdown kits, to working as a traveling salesman, to General Manager – James Symons is now the acting CEO and has grown the company internationally, with offices in the United States, Europe, Japan (APAC) and Australia.

The PC Locs product portfolio has evolved to meet the demands of customers around the world. As organisations' dependency on mobile technology continues to grow, our portfolio of solutions is also advancing – from laptop carts and stations to smart locker systems. The benefits of automated device management are far-reaching in organisations that rely on mobile devices for critical education and business applications.

With a sheer determination to think outside the box, James and Paul are most excited to solve the problems that don't even exist yet. That's been PC Locs mentality from day one.
