DataSolutions Group has reported to have achieved £75 million in revenues over the past 12 months, which also coincides with its 30th birthday. The UK and Ireland-based distributor says it grew revenues by 23% compared to the previous 12-month period – its best 12-month period since inception.
The Camberley and Dublin headquartered distie – which delivers technologies across the areas of digital workplace, hybrid multi-cloud, networking and cybersecurity – also reports its best quarter ever between July and September this year, with revenue totalling £25 million. Since launching in the UK in 2016, DataSolutions has grown year-on-year by 30%. DataSolutions aims to continue its growth trajectory across both markets in 2022 and beyond.
Based on its recent performance, the company says it expects continued growth up to the end of its financial year ending March 2022, and is on track to surpass £85 million in revenues in the upcoming financial year ending March 2023.
Central to its strong growth is DataSolutions’ digital workspace portfolio and cybersecurity offering, consisting of vendors such as Citrix, which was the top performer during the company’s last quarter due to the increased demand for companies to permanently adopt hybrid work models, transition their businesses to SaaS and cloud services, and enhance their security solutions. DataSolutions also works with Appcure, Check Point, ColorTokens, D3 Security, Lakeside, LoginVSI and Orca Security. For Citrix in the UK and Ireland, DataSolutions is the number one distributor for new product and cloud transition bookings. DataSolutions delivered 874% growth in Q3 2021 compared to the same quarter in 2020. DataSolutions has secured 74% market share in cloud transition bookings, and 50% market share across new product bookings in Q3 2021.
Michael O’Hara, Managing Director of DataSolutions said: “The growth that we have seen over the past year has been phenomenal, driven by not only the innovative technologies we deliver but also the best customer service from our exceptionally talented team. This has always been our focus over the years – 30 of them to be precise! – and it will continue to be in the years to come.”
Another priority for the business is becoming carbon neutral – something which DataSolutions is on track to achieve in 2022 and which is of increasing importance to IT resellers, vendors and end users. Earlier this year, DataSolutions launched Techies Go Green, a movement of IT and tech-oriented companies who are committed to decarbonising their businesses and making them green and verifiably sustainable. The group already has in excess of 150 signatories including Softcat, Version 1, Sapphire and ColorTokens.
O’Hara added: “As well as supporting companies during what has been an extremely challenging time, helping to secure and enable widespread remote working throughout the pandemic, we will be there as they move forward into the hybrid world of working and also towards a greener business future. Technology will become ever more important to businesses as they look to adapt and transform how they operate. It will therefore be crucial for organisations to choose the right solutions and services to empower people and secure processes, whilst supporting sustainable practises and driving growth.”
