We are more than an IT company.

We are a Business Solutions Provider that adds value to your business, with many years’ experience in the Food and General Manufacturing industries.

Why us – we listen! We understand! We challenge! All from a position of strength which is built on many years of business experience working with a variety of companies from small businesses to businesses that have expanded quickly and now have annual sales of £100M+.

We focus on the IT and let you focus on your business.

Our Process

Every business is different, what works elsewhere won’t necessarily work for you.  We know this and will not apply a blanket one size fits all package.

Services

We take the time to understand you and your business and then we will integrate into your business as true partners.  We work best when we partner our clients to achieve mutual goals.  Some of the key services we can provide include:

ERP INTEGRATION

Our staff have helped some of the UK’s leading food manufacturers grow their business thanks to our scalable ERP Solutions.  We understand Finance, Manufacturing, Procurement, Planning, Sales, Commercial Decision Making, HR & Technical processes.

CYBER THREATS

Are you safe from today’s Cyberthreats?  It’s unlikely.  Our unique multi layered approach incorporating both technical and non-technical solutions helps to ensure that your business won’t be giving money to criminals.  The threats are real and forever evolving.  Doing nothing is no longer an option.

PROCESS CREATION & MANAGEMENT

We create, deliver and manage Processes, Managing IT, Engineering & Technical suppliers to ensure all IT systems work together by understanding what each is doing.

 

BUSINESS CONTINUITY

You already know your Systems are necessary for your business to run.  Working with us we ensure that if they fail your business will keep going thanks to our knowledge of always giving you “somewhere to go” should the unthinkable occur.

IT Cover Labour

We provide IT Cover Labour which assists with, Holiday Cover, Sickness Cover and Overflow cover for busy periods.  We can do this for large and small companies throughout the Ireland and the UK.

NETWORK SECURITY

Do you know who connects to your network? Do you allow VPN access?  Do you let suppliers and third party guests connect to your network?  Perhaps these are all necessary. With GDPR the price of unauthorised data access can be high. We can help to reduce this risk.

MANAGE IT PROVIDERS

We manage your IT & Technical (inc. Production) Providers. You manage your business. This means you have only one person reporting to you.  A human dashboard, if you like.

USER TRAINING

We train your users & staff in Cybersecurity awareness.  Always mindful that the last line of defence is the user and with more and more successful attacks happening as a result of Social Engineering, user awareness is now the number 1 Cyber security concern.

OFFICE ACCESSIBILITY

Got a offsite employee?  Whether it’s through elected “work at home”, a remote business meeting, a sick employee who wants to work or you just need to access the office remotely you need a secure and tested method of access.

DISASTER RECOVERY

Should your systems fail, you need to know we will have them up & running as a matter of urgency.  While Continuity planning is imperative you need your core systems up & running without excessive delay.

Our key areas of specialisation include Manufacturing, Services and Charities.
