North East IT company reports major revenue increase in 2017
A North East IT company has had its ‘best ever’ quarter after seeing revenue increase by 29 per cent to cap a memorable 2017.
razorblue, headquartered in the North East, has created a new account management team, expanded and improved its service desk, continuing to recruit new staff throughout the year as the business has grown and taken on new clients.
The firm expects to turn over in excess of £4.5m in 2018 and continue to create more jobs in the region.
In the last 12 months, razorblue has increased its staff numbers to over 50 to assist with its growth plans and has also celebrated a year at its Wynyard office. Notable new clients include BHP Law, Archers Law and Stiller Warehousing & Distribution among many others.
Managing director, Dan Kitchen, said: “2017 has seen us continue to meet demand and enter new markets, meaning we have exceeded the growth targets we set ourselves and created a significant number of jobs.
“Increasingly clients are looking for a single, professional partner to manage all of their IT, cloud, connectivity, telecoms and business system requirements and we are in an ideal position to meet that need.”
The company specialises in managed IT services, cloud, connectivity, telecoms and business software.
In addition to the Catterick headquarters and the recently opened Wynyard office, razorblue also has an office in Leeds and a base in London.
razorblue expects to sustain similar levels of growth in the coming year with the recent launch of a new managed IT security product for its clients.
Kitchen concluded: “We have a great team here and we are adding talented individuals all the time.
“Our growth reflects our commitment to exceptional service levels, our ability to create innovative business solutions and becoming an invaluable IT partner for our clients.
“We are looking forward to an even better 2018 as we remain true to our core principle of putting client needs first.”
