Having been named the 11th fastest growing technology company in the UK by Deloitte, Azzure IT has recently supplied national sight loss charity RNIB with finance systems using Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
PCR talks to managing director Craig Such about the business.
Please tell us about Azzure IT and its background...
I launched the firm in late 2011 with my own funds to provide a great quality service to customers, improving their efficiency and creating a good return- on-investment.
We launched completely cold: we didn’t have any existing customers so we had to use innovative marketing strategies to get where we are today.
Just five years down the line, Azzure IT is now the UK’s leading Microsoft Gold Partner. We are a specialist ERP solution provider, globally recognised by Microsoft as one of the top four companies in the world delivering ERP systems to small and medium sized businesses. We help businesses to improve efficiency and productivity in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, distribution and professional services.
Why do you use Microsoft Dynamics NAV as a solution?
Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a powerful yet cost- effective ERP solution. It is extremely flexible, because it can be tailored to fit the specific needs of a particular company or industry. Microsoft Dynamics NAV comes with minimal implementation risk and maximum return on investment, as you can replace as much or as little of your existing system as you require, so you can design a solution that fits the way a specific company woks.
What other products and services do you offer?
Azzure IT software solutions are all based on Microsoft technology and include both on-premise and managed cloud based services. Azzure’s cloud based solutions are available as ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) which means you only pay for the software you use, when you need it.
Who is your typical customer?
We have owner-managed businesses as well as national PLC. A typical customer will be looking to invest in to their back office systems with a clear requirement which we can help deliver. This could be to scale up for new markets, or manage customer service and compete at a better level. We prefer to work with firms who value what ERP can do for them, who see tech as an enabler.
What’s next for Azzure?
Our goal is to achieve ISO 2001:2015 designed for service. With a quality manager and a constant review of our systems, we’re confident that we’ll be leading in terms of customer satisfaction.
