Are you a company needing to upgrade old computers, laptops or other devices? Perhaps you are looking for business grants for IT? The Government have announced many business grants and funding opportunities for businesses during COVID-19. From local councils, local enterprise partnerships (LEP) and other regional business groups, there is now an array of grants and funding available. Many local councils also have free access to GRANTFinder which may point local businesses in the right direction.
Government grants and loans during COVID-19 means that you may be able to update and upgrade your IT to suit a new working environment. Budget restraints will also be implemented in larger companies, the public sector and government agencies so adopting smarter working practices makes sense.
If you are looking to decrease IT operational costs, the good news is there are several ways in which you can achieve this.
- Firstly, you may want to look at outsourcing your IT to reduce capital, operational and resource costs.
- Secondly, look at outsourcing one-off projects so as to ensure your staff maintain the day to day running of the IT department.
- Thirdly, consider consolidating your systems to help reduce license fees.
The above three examples are pretty common however there are many more reasons. If you are looking to upgrade ageing computers or other devices, outdated servers or printers, add new mobile or VOIP phones, talk to us, we will be happy to help.

“We were looking for a new IT supplier when we were introduced to GNC. From the outset their proactive approach to overcome hurdles was second to none; from website design and implementation to supplying and installing a complete hardware package the process was faultless from day one.”
Dan Brown Sales Director | A & D Haulage
“GNC led the project with great aplomb. Planning was performed early so we knew the outline timetable and broad cost. They were diligent and logical in their software recommendation, initially engaging with the wider AXA Group to see if an incumbent Document Management System (archive) could be extended for Bluefin Advisory Services. From our users’ perspective, the subsequent install and load of the system was seamless however this was down to the hard work GNC performed behind the scenes, closely managing the software provider to resolve a handful of significant issues and ensuring the project delivered to timetable and high quality. I highly recommend them and would work with them again if the opportunity arose.”
