We have all worked at a senior level helping businesses to build their infrastructure. With our passion for all things technical we have engaged in making our business something we enjoy and at the same time are able to be honest and direct with customers. We always advise on what is out there, while understanding what they use today.
We are fascinated with all areas of technology and we bring that into our consulting capacity. This enables us to be able to grasp the entire spectrum of the technology arena and help you to better understand how that technology could be used within your business environment. It also gives us the capacity to predict the current trends and future direction the industry is taking, whether that be in the type of programming languages which are evolving or the mobile technology direction in which you should be aware if moving into that area.
We have long been fascinated with the ability of technology to re-invent itself every few years and we pride ourselves on being at the forefront, but at the same time understanding what works now and most importantly, works well.
Helping start-ups to make the right technology choices today which will carry them through to tomorrow and beyond. It is true to say that we tend to get the call once our client has already had some consulting and ends up coming to us with a website that doesn’t quite do what they need or infrastructure which is not fully fit for purpose. It doesn’t need to be this way, start-ups need technology help from before day one, and we endeavour to help so they may avoid such pitfalls and start their technology life as promising and successful as the business life.
We know start-ups don’t have much time to get this area up to speed as they are busy with fund-raising and strategy for the business - and rightly so! Let us solve the technology headaches before they begin.
This might seem an obvious thing to mention, but Consulting often gets confused as a Strategic discussion. We have found that in our experience, technical strategy is just as important and the differences are subtle but significant. A good 6 monthly strategic meeting can work wonders and save you having to fight fires.
That sudden realisation that no one imagined you would be getting 50,000 hits a week on your website soon after it went live; the problems of an infrastructure which doesn't scale when you hire an additional 50 staff for a special project. It's these kind of things for which we can help you to build in fail safe procedures to ensure that should you ever need it, capacity and redundancy will be there.
We've all been there - something comes up and you need an answer quickly. Building a solution is never something you would choose to do in a hurry, but sometimes needs must. That is where we can help, having developed a myriad of technical solutions, we know what works and what doesn't. This gives you the edge, because we can call on our experience to give you a quick response to your request. At the same time, you know when we say 'we've done that before', that you can rest easy knowing we will be able to deliver.
We take over the process, from procurement, to project planning, to implementation and support during the roll out. We can retain support duties after completion if that is what you wish.
Simon began his career in the video game industry in the 1990’s having learnt 68000 and i386 assembly language and excelled as a trouble shooter.
He was later instrumental in helping build up a financial start-up, building their flagship product and it's supporting infrastructure.
During this period he gained world class experience establishing offices in New York and Singapore, as well as working directly with countless blue chip financial institutions around the globe.
2022 being his 17th year running Scorpion ITC and he has always enjoyed being at the coal face, as well as in the boardroom.
Amjad has been a key part of our success, covering a variety of skillsets he has enabled us to expand into different technologies.
He has been working with Simon for about 10 years now and helped to grow the client base during this time.
Oli provides logistical expertise coupled with the ability to get things done through precise planning and attention to detail.
Oli has been working with Simon for about 7 years and his additional skillsets have enabled the company to branch out into Office moves and facilities maintenance.
They have incorporated our many unique software requirements into a global system that is standardised so wherever you logon you do so to a familiar working environment. The initial cost savings were substantial as they quickly identified maintenance contracts that were obsolete and transferred us to superior suppliers. I can highly recommend their services, especially if your company has unique requirements which require bespoke solutions.
The thing about Scorpion IT, is that whatever weirdness pops up or annoying thing goes down, they're there - remotely or in person. As a small business, we haven't got the expertise nor resources to cope with these anomalies.
They are like an extended part of who we are. It works for us. It's efficient and we've recommended them to friends, family and colleagues.
