ConvergeOne Storms Ahead With £1.4M Order Book
ConvergeOne, the Media City-based IT solutions integrator, is celebrating its best year yet with contract wins worth circa £1.4 million to date.
The Cisco, Net App, and VMWare reseller, which was established in 2008, has seen its profits soar with an order book value of £1.4 million, which includes new contract wins from Napthens Solicitors, Morson Projects, Star Perfumes, Lexon Pharmaceuticals as well as London-based Metropolitan Housing. These new deals come on the back of a strong final quarter in 2011 when the business signed a global pharmaceutical business, Salford Community Leisure and also won a new data center project with a leading Manchester law firm.
Mark Johnson, Managing Director at ConvergeOne commented "We've had an exceptional start to the year winning new business in a tough market and up against some big competitors. I think the secret to our success has been the fact that we are quick to respond and we recommend solutions which save our customers money on network and telecoms and offer a tangible return on their investment."
ConvergeOne has grown in size in the last 12 months and now employs 19 people from its Media City head office. Recent new recruits include Clare McKnight in a Client Services role and Michael Stevens as a Sales Executive, alongside technical appointments in Manchester and London. The business also runs a successful apprentice scheme and often has a number of young apprentices being trained up to become certified engineers.
Johnson is keen to maintain their momentum, "We've got a fantastic team of dedicated people, a solid client base in the North West and we're excited about the future. We know it will be tough to maintain our current rate of success but we're confident that 2012 will be a good year for us."
