We do not believe in the methodology subscribed by some consulting firms that “One size fits all”. Our ultimate goal is to establish a long term relationship with you and our services are driven and focused around that endpoint. We would always discuss with you in an open and transparent way what we feel would be the best solution for you. The choice is always yours, and we would endeavor to support you in the best way possible to achieve your strategic goals. We have certifications from ITIL, Prince, Microsoft, VMware, Google, Veeam, Cisco, HP, Meru/Fortinet, Trapeze to name a few. Our work is carried out according to ITIL methodology and we offer a range of services which include:

Support for proprietary education specific networks
With decades of experience in the Education sector, we can provide advanced third line support, and first and second line support for schools and colleges with RM Community Connect and Ranger based networks, and standard “Vanilla” Microsoft Windows based networks. Some of our consultants have previously worked for RM Education in a technical capacity for many years and are able to completely understand the specific rigorous demands a network is placed under in an educational setting, which is often much more extreme then in a business environment.
Remote Access Design and Implementation
If you need remote access into your business or establishment, we can work with you to provide a tailored solution meeting your budget whether that is Microsoft Remote Desktop Services/Gateway based access, VPN access, Citrix or other method, we are happy to work with you.
We can provide an infrastructure audit. The aim of the audit is to:
- Discover the hardware and software that comprises the network
- Identify and understand the core and critical systems in use on the network
- Help the organisation clearly define the scope of the services currently being provided by IT team
- Identify any remedial actions to be undertaken as a result of the audit
- Identify subsequent improvement works to bring the network in line with established best practices
In order to highlight areas of concern and positive aspects of the network being audited, a report will be created comprising of a Red, Amber or Green (RAG) status which will be assigned to the elements that comprise the network.
This audit is not intended to be a fully-detailed technical capture of the network.
Cybersecurity analysis and penetration testing of systems
We have a methodical and flexible approach to working with you to analyse risk and threat exposure which your business carries at your technology interfaces and internal processes.
We will capture requirements and create a penetration testing (PEN test) scope of works which is very effective in identifying vulnerabilities and details a plan of action and the necessary execution stages.
Once the tests have been successfully executed, we will provide a report highlighting critical, medium and low exposure vulnerabilities and suggesting remediation steps.
Probono work done for selected community based projects
We strongly believe in the cohesion of communities and actively champion charities and assist in voluntary organisations. We use our technical expertise to give something back to our society and to this end select charity organisations to work with on a pro bono basis, or at very highly discounted rates.
