menu Summary

If you made it this far I am glad my picture did not deter you. (Background is from Blade Runner 2049)

My value is simple, I solve problems with technology and via global dynamic sourcing and licencing knowledge I make it much cheaper to obtain.

How?

Global dynamic sourcing - Within the click of a few buttons we can obtain licensing prices, enterprise level agreements and quotations from across the globe from thousands of vendors finding the best price possible.

Industry Leaders -16 Gold Microsoft accreditation's, No. 1 Microsoft LSP in EMEA, No. 1 VMware partner, No. 1 Citrix partner, No. 1 CA partner, No. 2 Adobe partner to name a few.

Managed Services and IP's - From managed cloud platforms, portals to optimise Azure spend all the way across to utilising SAMaaS and license portfolio management the best ROI is obtained throughout your entire software licensing and cloud estate.
