Back in 1983, John Chadwick set up a computer company.
Fast forward to today, and John is still at the helm, supported by a team of experts in IT, software development, system development and customer service.
John’s vision was always about looking after the customer and giving excellent service, and our extensive list of longstanding clients proves that we deliver on that promise.
Increasingly, though, it’s not just about fixing hardware, installing software, synchronising across platforms and dealing with data loss. The demand now is for technology as a strategic tool, and we’ve kept ahead of the curve by adding expertise in software development and systems consultancy to our offer, ensuring that our clients, too, stay one step ahead.
Meet the Team
You’d like us. Our customers do. We’re good people.
There are 30 of us, based in Hertfordshire, and we’re here to help. The team is made up of long-serving, experienced consultants and dedicated account managers, and that’s just one of the things that sets us apart from other IT companies.
Ably led by the Senior Management Team, who are…
Head of Support & Development
Head of Technical & Cloud Services
Where we operate
Our head office is in Potters Bar, in leafy Hertfordshire, a few miles north of central London, but our clients range from those on our doorstep, to thousands of miles away, across the oceans. And wherever they work, we can work. Isn’t technology amazing?!
Values are like lighthouses; they are signals, giving us direction, meaning and purpose.
We live by a set of values that provide the foundations for everything we do. They underpin the way we work with each other, with clients, suppliers and business partners. They’ve been shaped by the way the company has evolved, and have become part of our ethos. So whether you’re looking to outsource your IT completely or whether your IT department just requires some extra assistance, we hope they align with yours.
Some of our values are givens
Like most organisations – and people – many of these are simply commitments, to be honest and decent in what we do:
- Be truthful
- Be patient and understanding
- Respect everyone
- Don’t cut corners
- Put the customer first
We hold other values that are more specific to us
Some of our values are more personal, reflecting our unique culture:
- Empower people to be the best they can be
- Never be afraid to challenge and innovate
- When we work together, nothing is impossible
- Face reality head-on, and take responsibility
- Be positive, and enjoy life’s challenges!
