We’ll hire for you like we hire for ourselves

As a software development specialist, we understand the challenges you face in finding just the right person for the job because we’ve been there. Often IT recruitment agencies simply don’t understand or possess the in-depth knowledge required to meet briefs for specialised Microsoft technologies. Since we’re in the industry and a certified Microsoft Gold Partner we know exactly what to look for and, importantly, why.


We provide full on-going system maintenance services tailored to meet individual client requirements, including telephone, email and on-site support.

We deliver to an agreed SLA and can provide support for systems that we deliver or for your existing systems.We can also deliver Managed Hosting and full 24/7 support in partnership with leading UK hosting partners where required.

Support can be used for all purposes, including:

  • Fixing
  • Updates
  • Strategy & planning
  • Mentoring & consultancy, informal
  • Routine maintenance & system health checks
