Tech-Wales has doubled its revenues, increased its employees by almost 50 per cent and won a major contract after receiving its CompTIA Accredit UK Trustmark+.
The firm received the badge of honour for IT businesses following funding from Swansea University based project, Software Alliance Wales.
Based in South Wales, the company was founded in 2012 and delivers IT solutions and services to businesses across the UK. With the help of Software Alliance Wales and European Social Funding through the Welsh Government, it achieved the highly sought after CompTIA Accredit UK Trustmark+ industry standard in August 2013, which has enabled the business to grow.
“Since founding the company in 2012, we had primarily been providing IT services to local businesses but we had ambition to grow our business and break into new markets and win bigger projects, which would in turn enable us to recruit local IT talent, maintain customer service levels and build a sustainable business in South Wales,” explained Adrian Williams, managing director, at Tech-Wales.
“Having Swansea University on our doorstep has been a invaluable business resource for us. It can be difficult to achieve differentiation in this competitive market but thanks to the Software Alliance Wales team and our CompTIA Trustmark+ we were able to win customers that would have previously been unobtainable. We’re now full steam ahead and excited for the future.”
Vaughan Shayler, director of channel strategies for CompTIA, added: “The Trustmark programme was established at the request of our members and the IT industry to allow companies following established best practices to stand out as leaders in the industry. We award the CompTIA Accredit UK Trustmark+ to organisations that demonstrate their ability to develop and deliver first-class IT solutions and services under rigorous testing.”
