Managed Services

Get the support you need, when and where you need it


Managing an ever-bulging portfolio of systems, platforms and vendors can stretch already limited resources to the limit. Today’s IT leaders have to juggle the need to manage costs, while improving service levels to the business.

That's where we can lend a hand. From providing ad-hoc assistance to cover staff holidays, sickness or extended hours, to handling day-to-day support and house-keeping tasks so your IT team can focus on core skills and projects, we offer a range of flexible services to sustain and maintain your infrastructure, middleware and business applications.

We believe the abiding approach to IT support on offer today has lost its way and needs to get back on the path to supporting business objectives.

Yes, there are days when you just need someone to fix a problem. It could be a problem with logging on to the network, or retrieving your emails. When those things don’t work they can quickly escalate from minor irritation to major headache and you’ll want them fixed – fast.

“We are obsessed with getting the best value for our donors, so outsourcing the expense of running our IT systems to an expert third party makes perfect sense.”

Brian Deadman, Oxfam International Director of Operations, Oxfam International
