Press Release

The story of our latest appointment has reached the local media. The article below can be found in the Gloucestershire Echo and Citizen newspapers:

Local Software solution and programming experts, Severnside Software Ltd (SSL) have been appointed to provide a fully managed IT Support Contract to national property consultants, Bruton Knowles, beating off stiff competition from across the region, supported by Barclays Business.

“We must be doing something right,” says MD Roger White from his Waterwells Business Park HQ. “We’re winning new business from all sectors, both domestically and internationally. This new contract will increase turnover by around 40% and support our ambitious growth strategy. Our staffing has doubled in recent years and we are still recruiting as we acquire new business!

“We’re especially pleased to be able to help Bruton Knowles maintain its national IT infrastructure, including help desk support for nine offices located across the UK, including their Gloucester HQ.

Anne Williams, Finance Partner at Bruton Knowles, said:“The outsourcing of our IT function to SSL will allow Bruton Knowles to focus on our core services whilst benefiting from their expertise and the latest IT and security technology available.”

James Milne, Barclays Business Manager for Gloucester said “As champions of local business, it is essential that we support local companies such as Severnside Software Ltd.

“Roger is a great example of an entrepreneur using his expertise and skills to develop a successful business.  By really understanding the challenges and issues faced on a daily basis by such companies, Barclays Business has been able to support Roger and his team both financially and professionally, throughout recent developments.”

“Overcoming complex software problems has taken me all over the world,” said Roger. “These business trips include visits to Spain, Portugal, Holland, Germany, the USA, Columbia and, most recently, India where we had to integrate two completely separate IT systems located on opposite sides of the world!

“But, Gloucester has been our home for the last twenty years and we are proud to be able to look after the IT requirements of numerous local companies, many of whom have decided to outsource their IT requirements to a specialist company such as SSL.

“SSL’s remote support systems enable us to instantly respond to problems 24/7, but what sets us apart from our competition is that we still believe that there is no substitute for one of us jumping in the car to sort out more serious issues on site.

“We also seem,” concludes Roger, “to be able to find solutions to IT problems across four time zones that have appeared to others to be completely impenetrable!”
