With further rapid growth predicted within its computer forensics division – software asset managementand investigation of data leaks are fast becoming a key strength of the firm – Skibo expects to continue to add to its expanding team in the coming months.
“We are on course to continue the trend that we have set in the last four years of increasing annual turnover, and aim to achieve a turnover of £2.2m – helped by this latest raft of contract wins – for our current financial year," says MD Mark Mair.
“We have grown very quickly since we launched in 2006, and we are always looking to recruit dynamic staff members who can enhance our team and its capabilities. More and more of our clients are now moving away from on-premises IT towards cloud-based services. We have put together a very strong team of specialists who will be able to make the transition seamless and provide high levels of ongoing support.”
Skibo has also recently invested over £100,000 in the latest automated IT infrastructure support and monitoring systems to provide increased levels of pro-active support to clients. The system allows Skibo staff to continuously monitor a client’s IT infrastructure, and an automated warning enables engineers to react immediately to any issues that arise. The alerts apply to all areas of IT infrastructure, whether it is in the office, installed in fleet vehicles or in the offshore or marine environment.
Mair adds, “This allows us to provide an improved service offering to clients as we can be pro-active instead of reactive due to the fact that we are constantly aware of the state of IT systems. In many cases we become aware of an issue before the client becomes aware and can take steps to resolve it before it starts to have any kind of impact on a client’s business activities.”
