We believe in specialists and that one size does not fit every need. That’s why we have chosen Connectus to provide all of our hosting services. Having a company we can rely on without doubt or question is invaluable to both Urban and our clients. Connectus has an infrastructure in place with support and maintenance as standard but go to incredible lengths to keep their clients happy.

Our first request presented Connectus with a challenge – to work with servers in a way that we preferred and to install Windows licences. They succeeded and have provided the environment we need with a greatly supportive team. They brought together a cost-effective solution which means it’s an ideal platform for all of our projects and there are no additional costs being passed onto our clients.

In addition, we have been looking at our own processes, and robust cybersecurity is key to that. The pandemic has pushed us into making sure our company and data is secure. We want to ensure our data – and our client’s data – is as safe and secure as it can be. Working from remote locations can add complexity and our Connectus audit means we are doing everything to ensure data integrity across our systems and networks. Happily, we are now Cyber Security accredited and we are enjoying deeper dives into our remote working methods.

Andy Marsden, Group Business Development Director, Connectus, says: “Lou and her team have realised the advantages of outsourcing certain technology elements to us, with our deep expertise, experience and hands-on support and maintenance. Since Connectus started, we’ve always had a mission to provide a suite of appropriate services to help protect businesses and enable them to scale fast enough to create and maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage. We are delighted to partner with The Urban Tech Group in its ongoing business success.”

We’re looking forward to a long and supportive relationship with Connectus and it’s good to have complete confidence that they will deliver to our expectations.
