Our Journey

Let us take you on a journey …

If you are a business or not for profit organisation with up 200 users and you want to improve your efficiency and take advantage of the current revolution towards scalable, low cost and future proof business technology then please read on.

We are Cloud Central, a professional team of business technology specialists who are bringing a new approach to a market that often fails to meet the needs of its clients.

We will be bringing this to life in our blog but to get started consider this…

Three into one goes easily with Cloud Central…

At Cloud Central we keep it simple. We take your IT, Telephony and Connectivity requirements and bring them together to provide a fully-integrated, scalable Business Technology solution for your growing business. Using our years of knowledge and experience we can put together a roadmap that will take the hassle out of your IT and communications support to provide a package that works for you – now, and into the future.

Our bespoke solutions will align your Business Technology requirements and contracts in a simple, easy-to-use way to ensure that you and your staff have the flexibility to work from any location – all with the peace of mind that our round-the-clock desktop support brings.

All this is delivered by a business that has a team, culture and level of service that has more in common with a professional services firm than a traditional sales-led IT and Telecoms business.

Cloud Central Collaboration

Just a little about us ...

We started our life over 16 years ago as Grade Computer Services Ltd. For many years we provided IT support services to an ever increasing client base of SME businesses and not for profit organisations. In 2015, the business attracted the attention of entrepreneur Andy McDougall who having previously led Central Telecom Ltd, a £40m turnover telephony company, was determined to come back into the market to provide integrated business technology services. Having made a substantial financial investment (and attracted a joint venture partner in Dains LLP, the award winning regional firm of accountants and business advisers), the business has since significantly expanded and extended it’s services to become a class leading player in Cloud and hosted technologies.

Many of our clients tell us that in recent years, their technology is placing limits on their business and holding back growth. In future posts we will be sharing with you real examples and case studies of what we can do and how we can help you through the complicated but rewarding journey to take back control of your business technology.
