IT consultancy moves to bigger base

Bondholder and IT consultancy firm Economit has moved to a bigger base and taken on new staff as business continues to grow.

Formed in September 2011, the firm has now taken a lease on larger premises, The Colour Shed, at Darley Abbey Mills, to cope with expansion.

The company's work focuses on providing digital transformation services which include everything from IT infrastructure and networking to mobile technologies and unified communications, all strategically integrated with saving costs and improving process efficiencies in mind, hence the name Economit.

Since it started the company has achieved savings of more than £1.5m for clients – mainly in the leisure, professional services, and distribution and manufacturing sectors across The Midlands.

Before leaving the previous office, Economit recruited two new staff – Charlotte Clifford as project co-ordinator, and Rob Marshall as principal consultant who can go into companies as an IT director.

Since moving the company has recruited Nick Briars as head of project delivery.

Now the company is looking to take on an associate consultant and an apprentice administrator.

As part ofits growth and development the company recently achieved ISO 9001, a quality management standard accreditation.
