IT Ambulance Ltd is pleased to have achieved its 10 Year Anniversary.

The company was started by its Founder and Managing Director, Frank Connelly in January 2005 when requests from friends and neighbours in the village of Mere in rural Wiltshire collided with his work as an IT Consultant on Managed Services in London and the Home Counties. That ready desire to help still remains the basis of the company ethos.

The business was registered under the name Technology Gateway in January 2005 on the principle that its customers could be guarded against wasting money on poor IT Solutions with the company as its gatekeeper. Radio advertising in the company’s first branch office in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, demonstrated that it was in fact its guaranteed same hour “IT Ambulance” service, that businesses most readily grasped and the name changed to suit.

IT Ambulance was born out of specific Break-Fix need. Over a period of time the firm applied the principles and skills that its founder had learned working with Enterprise scale businesses to SME customers. Break-Fix became a more proactive service with less drama as a result. This then developed into a fixed cost proposition with IT Ambulance managing everything from Broadband to Web Hosting around the core IT infrastructure so that the customer could forget about IT and get on with their day job.

IT Ambulance has expanded dramatically over this 10 year period from a back bedroom business to a company with 3 sites at Zeals in Wiltshire, Aylesbury and Park Royal in West London as well as a speciality development team based in the Bristol area. IT Ambulance hopes to expand upon this base in the next year whilst bringing further employment opportunities to Wiltshire in support of its growth. 10 years on and the average IT Ambulance customer is much larger and with more sophisticated needs from its IT Systems. The technology has moved from Small Business Servers based on Widows 2003 to both hosted or more enterprise scale solutions, utilising virtualisation, with users in the field enjoying mobile phone, tablet or laptop access from wherever they are.

Our large multi-disciplined team now supports not only server and email solutions based on Microsoft Windows, but also Mac based devices, Linux, diverse Security Protection and Disaster Recovery products

It looks forward to embracing the change of the next 10 years.
