Compatibility, the leading IT services supplier to businesses in the South-East has won an on-going contract to upgrade, supply and support IT systems for Labtech International, the Ringmer-based provider of innovative, high quality products and services to the life-sciences community.
Labtech, which operates both in the UK and France, is seeking to drive improvements in productivity and efficiency through a root and branch review and upgrading of its IT systems. The move comes following a period of sustained business growth and seeks to enable the company to position itself for further development in the future.
Patricia Sturgess, head of finance and logistics at Labtech said: “We chose Compatibility to partner with us in moving our IT infrastructure forward on the basis of three specific criteria. We wanted a local business with an established reputation, an independent partner whose consultative approach would not box us in to an off-the-shelf solution and a team who would provide us with the right level of support and with whom we can grow in the future”,
Paul Smart, managing director of Compatibility said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Labtech”,
“Many of our clients are seeking to use emerging technologies such as those in server virtualization to improve their IT infrastructure. We have invested heavily in building a team with the consultative and technical skills to provide those services and these have all been brought to bear to get Labtech the comprehensive solution that is right for their business. We look forward to a fruitful partnership and further development in the coming years”.
