We’re cloud technology leaders…

…with a problem-solving toolkit that unlocks growth, drives change, fuels innovation, boosts productivity and removes workplace headaches.

We came to the market with a cloud-first mission, perhaps before UK businesses were ready. But now everyone is talking about digital transformation, we’re a safe pair of hands, making the complex simple, clever and powerful. And with an eye constantly on the future, there’s far more to come from our HQ.
Our technology is exciting, but only people can get excited. That’s why we’re as known for our team as we are our toolkit. We work with clients to demystify the jargon-filled world of cloud, and will never settle for just, ‘OK’.

Customers love our passion, honesty, energy and ownership. We’re not afraid to ask “why?” but we’ve always got your back.

Meet some of the people that make the impossible possible.

Tim Mercer

CEO

He began his career in the armed forces, so is not your average tech entrepreneur.

Referred to by many as the lifeblood of our team, Carol is a people-orientated, process-driven customer service specialist who ensures we join the dots when delivering any project, large or small.
