Company History

Back in 2005, we were one of the first companies to develop mobile applications.  Client demand led us to focus solely on SharePoint from 2008, and we built a close relationship with Microsoft as a Gold Partner. In 2010, we were first to deploy SharePoint into Azure successfully, leading to us being invited to Microsoft’s Head Office in Redmond to meet with the SharePoint Technical Leads.

Azure became a big part of our business.  We are now among the largest consumers of Azure in the UK.  We developed Cloud Control in 2012 to help manage the costs of Azure, which led to our clients seeing a reduction in their costs of around 30%.
