Harrogate-based YorkshireCloud.co.uk, which provides hosted desktop and cloud computing services to small businesses has been appointed by employment group, Renovo.
Growing York-based Renovo provides a range of career support and advice services including executive recruitment, outplacement and employment support services for Welfare to Work providers. With an expanding workforce, the company wanted a cloud computing solution that was both reliable and accountable.
Chris Parker, director of Renovo, said:
Technology is vital to our business. The majority of our services are distance based, delivered via a common service platform consisting of next generation technology. We frequently communicate with clients online in the form of group workshops and webinars. It was essential that we appointed a cloud computing provider we could trust, and Yorkshire Cloud absolutely fitted the bill.
We were really impressed with the responsiveness and professionalism of the Yorkshire Cloud team. Directors Rob Collins and Jonathan Edwards are down to earth and great at communicating with a non-technical audience.
YorkshireCloud.co.uk was launched last year after Edwards found it impossible to source reputable and cost-effective cloud computing solutions for clients. Undaunted, Edwards, with his in-house team of technical specialists, designed and built a bespoke cloud solution for small organisations, with data hosted on dedicated secure servers located in Yorkshire.
Yorkshire Cloud technical director, Rob Collins, said:
Increasing numbers of small businesses like Renovo are discovering the enormous benefits to be had by adopting cloud computing technology.
Organisations that move to the cloud have greater flexibility to accommodate growth because they don’t have to buy expensive new kit in order to expand their IT systems. Instead, everything is online and more capacity can be added instantly, with a simple increase in the monthly fee. Reliability levels are guaranteed and we can provide fixed rates for businesses as small as five desks. Topping it all off, our servers are based right here in Yorkshire.
