Thousands of small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) across the UK have been given the chance to reduce their IT budgets and obtain access to state-of-the-art solutions previously the preserve of big business.
Outsourcery (formerly Genesis Communications) has launched a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about the way start-ups and SMEs interact with and pay for technology. Experts say gone are the days when a £10,000-plus IT investment – consisting of hardware, servers, software licences and phone systems – was a mandatory requirement for starting a new business.
Outsourcery provides software solutions to SMEs on a per user, per month basis without the need for hardware or maintenance contracts.
Outsourcery bosses say their software and services model offers maximum flexibility and cost control from as little as £6 per month, per user for unlimited business class e-mail and shared calendars.
The firm has invested around £10?million in state-of-the-art “bullet proof” data centres, which provide small businesses with cutting edge technology, enabling SMEs to be competitive against major corporations with multi-million pound IT budgets.
“Our aim is to empower our customers so that they can get on with running their business and do what they do best. The cost savings and business efficiency improvements that our customers are enjoying are helping them to thrive in difficult market conditions,” said Piers Linney, a director of Outsoucery.
Outsourcery, which has an annual turnover of more than £60 million, has more than 250 employees with offices in Bury, Sheffield, Leicester and London.
A leading UK supplier of mobile-centric unified communications and hosted IT solutions to SMEs, Outsourcery is the country’s largest independent provider of business mobile solutions.
The firm currently manages a total of 25,000 SME customers.
