GOODBYE 2021... HELLO 2022!
2021 has been a good year for CTECH. Not only did we turn 3 years of age, but we have seen substantial growth and a lot of change along the way!
We have brought on Andy Dennahy, allowing Founder John Cole to focus on what he likes doing best, focusing more of his time on the Sales side. Ewen Davies has become our First-Line IT Support Technician after successfully completing the Govt Kickstart Scheme. The latest Support Technician is Craig Gill, who will really strengthen our M365 and Voice implementation capability.
Here’s some words from our MD:
“There’s no escaping it, the last 12 months has been really tough! We have worked long hours and had to navigate some really difficult situations. It brought out the character of what we are trying to build, we didn’t shirk, and the feedback and help that we received from our customers has been really great. We have made a lot of progress, updated all our processes, and added some good technical staff. We are in a good place and more than ready to step things up again in 2022.”
Work Experience Projects
We have also built a strong link with Fareham College to enable students to build up work experience in both website design and business administration roles. We have plans to strengthen this partnership in years to come as we are in an ideal position to help shape the next generation of talent in our local area.
Our Chosen Charity
Rugby Against Cancer
We are proud to support this incredible charity who do amazing work to support players and their loved ones who have had to battle cancer. From their annual Trek 2 Twickers, an 80-mile trek from London to Portsmouth, amongst many other fund-raising events. They continue to inspire people to take a stand as a community; supporting each other.
What's the next big thing?
Things we think will be more powerful than ever in 2022 and beyond…
Plain old Voice! Yes, you heard it…. Voice! or what we used to call phone systems. In spite of Chat, Mobility, Teams, Social-Media, Whatsapp etc. the need for a business to talk personally to their customers is more important than ever. CTECH are huge advocates of helping every one of our customers do a better job and help them reinvent their voice communications.
To that end, we have put our money where our mouths are, and invested in a great new platform that seamlessly supports VoIP and Teams Telephony, with a great range of handsets and headsets. More importantly we have some smart guys who really understand voice system and can’t wait to help you get it right. If you want the best well thought out, cost effective voice service, come and talk to us in January and let’s get the show on the road.
Cyber crime is on the rise- make sure you’re protected.
As we continue further into the Digital Age, we must remain vigilant against those seeking to profit from our weaknesses. Sentinel One, Vade, Acronis are key.
Ask CTECH for our advice on how to maximise your security.
Big changes are coming to the way we work…
New apps and services are coming from Microsoft. With more to offer on the table, they are also pushing the prices up for the Business Basic licenses from March 2022.
Don’t worry, we will remind you closer to the time.
AI & VR
The way we view the world and work in it is changing…
Technology is moving faster than we seem to be able to keep up with! The robot in the image above is called “Ameca” and it can do realistic facial expressions that are mind-blowing.
They’re not here to take over the world…just yet!
