CT are Offering FREE Strategic IT Reviews for Local Businesses

2nd December 2020

Ian Snow, MD at CT, reviews the transition of IT over the last few months and announces free Strategic IT Audits to all local businesses.

2020 has been a tough business year, but together with our customers we have learnt a lot over the past nine months.

At the beginning of March our service desk helped move over 4,000 people to home working. During this process, it became clear very quickly that some businesses were not equipped for the move to remote working and faced big challenges such as security and communication. As the months went on CT saw a major transition once again with customers wanting to ensure a flexible future for the business and its employees, looking towards a more long term hybrid workplace model. 

During this period of change, many of CT's customers used this time, alongside their senior consultants, to review the role technology plays in their business and how by having a comprehensive plan in place to support their business goals now and for the long term was vital for enabling growth and security in the current climate.  

Central Technologies have seen how customers have benefited from this process and how it has provided vital reassurance and given them a strong technological foundation to hit 2021 and beyond in a far better position than they started 2020.  

They know that many businesses may not be able to justify the cost of this process during this difficult time and that any money spent in 2021 needs to count.  With this in mind, in December and January, CT are offering a Free Strategic IT review to all businesses within the S postcode. We want to help local businesses by offering something that could make a big difference to their business moving forwards. 

How will this work?

Businesses need to request a review here and a senior member of the CT team will then arrange a remote or face to face meeting. They will use this time to understand your business goals, challenges and risks. They will then carry out an IT audit either onsite or remotely and then deliver their findings back to you. This will be presented as a high level roadmap which will outline the prioritisation of short, medium and long term IT requirements

You will be under no obligation to take this any further, but it will provide some insight into your current situation and provide guidance that could help your business in 2021 and beyond.

"We enlisted the services of CT to help us ensure technology provided the foundations we need to support our charitable objectives and long term future goals. The team have worked closely with our IT Manager, leadership team and board of trustees to develop a technology roadmap that met these long term charitable and business objectives.  They continue to deliver high levels of customer service at all times and we are confident that should any problems arise they are addressed swiftly and effectively. We are looking forward to continuing our strong relationship with CT into the future." Matt Corbishley, Director of People and Performance, Ashgate Hospice.
