IT Services for Public Sector Organisations
Whatever type of public sector organisation you are, whether you’re working in an office or on the frontline, having the right IT services in place is vital for your team to be able to perform their jobs effectively.
We understand that budgets within public sector organisations can be tight, so deciding where to spend allocated funds can be difficult. However, public sector organisations that rely on out-dated legacy IT systems can be unproductive and also potentially leave you open to cyber attacks. We provide a range of public sector-specific IT solutions to support your organisation, while you focus on what’s important to your organisation.
So whether you work in local government, healthcare, law enforcement or education, it’s our aim to help you work efficiently with effective IT services, keeping your team safe, protected and connected, so you can continue to make a difference to people’s lives.
We’re accredited to a number of recognised standards, which gives you peace of mind that you’re dealing with a trusted and compliant technology partner. Find out more about our IT awards here.Get in touch
What we can do for your Public Sector Organisation
We offer a range of IT services for public sector organisations which can help your organisation function more effectively and cut costs at the same time.
Performing an IT Audit on your current infrastructure will identify areas of your IT that need modernising for compliance or security reasons, as well as areas that can be improved to streamline your processes and increase productivity.
Technology is part of many roles within public sector organisations, whether your team is office-based, frontline or a mixture, so IT issues mean they will be unable to perform their key duties. Having IT systems that work efficiently and securely is vital, however if something does go wrong, having access to excellent IT support is crucial for all public sector organisations.
Our IT support provides your organisation with the peace of mind that your systems are being monitored and supported at all times.If anything does go wrong, our expert teams are on hand to help you resolve any issues over the phone or in person. Our fully managed IT support offers a more cost-effective solution than traditional models and is delivered at a fixed monthly fee, making it easier to manage your budget.
Public sector organisations handle large amounts of information which needs to be stored securely and easily accessed. Cloud computing solutions are an affordable and flexible way to store and manage your data, and take away the hassle of running your own hardware and software. We provide a variety of cloud solutions which will help your teams access the information they need quickly from anywhere, helping them to work more efficiently.
In case of any issues, it is extremely important to have your systems backed up so that you can continue to provide your key services to the public. Our cloud backup and recovery services mean that whatever happens, we will get your organisation back up and running, and your systems restored to their original state as soon as possible. Your data is stored in our state-of-the-art data centre and can be recovered in as quickly as minutes so you can feel confident that your IT is in safe hands.IT Audit Our Cloud Solutions Our Backup and Recovery Solutions

With public sector organisations often having tight budgets and many stakeholders to have to reassure, spending money on updating and maintaining IT can be seen as a lower priority. However, with public sector organisations seen as an easy target to cyber criminals, having out-of-date IT systems can leave your organisation vulnerable to attacks.
Ransomware is a particular threat to the public sector, which has always been a target for cyber criminals intent on data theft and criminal damage. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects computer servers, desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones, often spreading across networks to other devices.
We can make sure your systems are secure via firewalling and anti-virus software. By ensuring that your systems are fully patched, we can help your organisation stay protected against these threats. But if the worst does occur, having your systems backed-up with a disaster recovery plan in place is vital.
By carrying out an IT audit, it is possible for public sector organisations to implement new IT solutions to make their organisation more efficient and save money. By analysing the organisation’s current operations, it’s possible to find bespoke solutions to unique security and productivity issues your existing operations face.
We help public sector organisations identify ways to make cost-saving and quality improvements to their current operations. For example, our expert team helped save Avon and Somerset Police an estimated £650,000 by benchmarking their current managed print value propositions, quality, and compliance with information protection requirements.
