Comms-care investment decisions delivering growth

Comms-care has unveiled a solid set of numbers for its most recent fiscal year

The decision by Comms-care to invest heavily in developing its services capability has been credited with helping deliver growth in its most recent financial year.

The firm, which has an ambition to be a a channel only IT services provider was able to report a 25% improvement in revenues for the year ended 31 March hitting £19.6m from £15.6m twelve months earlier.

Operating profit was also up by 44% to £3m from £2.1m and the firm broke through the 200 head-count mark. It also ended its fiscal year with a network of 723 channel partners, a 33% increase.

Comms-care managing director, Ben Davies said that some of the decisions it had made on the investment front were starting to deliver: "We have invested heavily in technical expertise over the last 12 months to ensure we are in the best position possible to help our channel partners to effectively outsource the IT services they provide to their clients to Comms-care."

"With the acquisition of Platform Consultancy in June, we are now able to offer an even wider portfolio of professional services for them to provide to clients, including additional propositions around Microsoft, VMware, Citrix and NetApp technologies," he added.

The firm also struck a deal in July to support Kcom Cisco customers in a three year deal that involves providing field-based services to around 6,000 customer sites.

Channel partners looking for outsourcing help are particularly keen for help with virtualisation, cloud, wireless, remote working and ensuring that data is stored securely.

Comms-care talked up its commitment to stay on top of emerging technologies as it looks to remain the trusted partner for those resellers looking for help from a third party.

“The technology industry is extremely fast-moving and we know that we cannot stand still – we need to continue investing in our technical expertise and ability to provide the services that our reseller partners need to succeed," said Comms-care chairman Peter Lloyd.
