We deliver a comprehensive catalogue of fully secure Managed Services based upon Microsoft, Ubiquiti, and HubSpot cloud solutions. Combining creativity and technology into a single platform to help fuel innovation and drive business growth. We begin with a free and comprehensive IT security health check and IT spending review. Followed by an IT operational maturity assessment which benchmarks your business’s current and desired state of IT operational maturity using both ITIL and the Microsoft Operations Framework. Your dedicated Service Delivery Manager will provide a clearly defined action plan which helps you to realise your business goals in the form of a comprehensive Service Delivery Plan.

During our Monthly Service Reviews with your dedicated Service Delivery Manager, we measure and report the progress of the Service Delivery Plan implementation. A major goal of the Service Delivery Plan is to realise maximum value from your investment in technology. Once cost reductions have been realised, we will have created a budget to invest in technologies that improve the customer experience. Our Managed Services provide a platform to transform IT from a business cost, or a liability, into a positive customer experience with which to grow your business.

When did you last measure your IT operational maturity?

Business that use technology to deliver positive customer experiences takes a more positive and enabling outlook on the world, by embracing technology to fuel innovation and drive growth. When technology and marketing combine, great things happen. Think of brands such as Apple or Facebook, brands which personify the very best of both marketing and technology combined. So what happens when businesses combine the marketing and technology role? They create a Chief Digital Officer and become transformative. A transformative digital business model will incorporate cloud technology architecture as a business platform, leverage big data to make decisions, be mobile centric, and incorporate social media to engage customers. Companies that embrace technology and data to make better business decisions understand that it’s all about the customer and understanding them better to give them what they want.

The journey from a traditional business to a digital leader is called ‘digital transformation’ and it’s going on all around you. That’s why it’s time to decide whether you want to be a Blockbuster or a Netflix. It’s time to change the game before it changes you, and there’s no time like the present. But before many traditional business can embrace a program of digital transformation, it may be necessary to stabilise and optimise your existing IT operations. The first step is to measure your existing IT operational maturity against the ITIL/MOF frameworks and to identify whether you’re a basic, standardised, rationalised or a dynamic business. Once we’ve identified your current state, we identify your desired state of operational maturity and build a Service Delivery Plan with clear actions to get there.
