Sheffield technology firm sees demand "skyrocket" over pandemic
A Sheffield technology company has seen demand for its services “skyrocket” over the last 18 months and is winning contracts with businesses across all sectors.
The company, eTiCloud, predominantly supplied cloud hosting services to law firms throughout the UK before the pandemic.
The demand follows the Yorkshire based chartered accountancy and business advisory firm, Hentons, becoming one of the first companies outside the legal industry and in both Sheffield and Yorkshire, to take advantage of etiCloud’s cloud-based IT and VoIP telephony capabilities.
Demand for etiCloud’s services has increased since the start of the pandemic and during the first two weeks of lockdown the company signed up a number of new customers with them now servicing more than 6,000 employees who connect to their digital workplace to work.
etiCloud, founded in 2015, now employs a 30-strong team and has recruited four new employees in the last three months. Other notable contract wins with Yorkshire based businesses include Emsleys Solicitors, Jordans Solicitors and Senior Architectural Systems.
Mike Hague, director of customer excellence at etiCloud, said: “Nowadays it’s vital that companies and organisations across all sectors offer a digitally agile workplace so that employees can get things done, regardless of where they are.
“Many businesses had already embraced this concept, but the pandemic suddenly made it a requirement for all types of companies across all industries, who needed a fast, secure and reliable service.”
