When it comes to authorising budget for IT the Finance Director can be presented with a minefield of jargon and impenetrable specifications

– How do you make sure that the solution you buy will meet your company needs and won’t become outdated within a couple of years?

Providing a robust network is complex enough but then there are decisions about who should support the system, what maintenance contracts should be purchased, how should you go about buying the hardware & software and from which supplier & finally, and most importantly, how to develop an IT strategy to ensure that whatever you buy helps to develop your organisation’s services and doesn’t just become a drain on limited resources

Netmetix ranked Number 1Not only are we ranked Number 1 within 200 miles of Coventry, but no other partner ranks higher than Netmetix anywhere in the UK at this point in time.

In October we announced our accreditation for becoming Coventry’s first Microsoft Partner with a Gold Server Platform accreditation, which set us apart as one of the best IT solutions providers in the region.

We’ve worked very hard to attain the accreditation, with four of our experienced technical engineers completing a rigorous examination to attain the Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Enterprise Administrator qualification.

Being a Microsoft Gold Partner means we have the technical ability and expertise to work closely with our customers and help them to streamline their operational processes so that they can focus on achieving sustainable business growth rather than on their IT systems.

It’s all about service

Charity paraglider triples personal record while raising over £1K for blood cancer charity

Determined sales executive, Stephen Groundwell, from Netmetix in Coventry managed to travel an astounding 60.5 miles in a charity paraglide, doubling his target and tripling his personal best.

Stephen was up at the crack of dawn and took off for flight at 8.30 am on Thursday 29th September from the Mam Tor hill in Derbyshire. While many enjoyed the September heat wave from land, Stephen spent 7 ½ hours soaring Derbyshire’s sunny skies in aid of blood cancer sufferers across the UK.

Many have supported Stephen in his cause and he has raised in excess of £1,000 towards Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research charity, helping to find better treatments and cures for all blood cancers.

 

When Stephen is not airborne and raising funds for worthwhile causes he is the team leader for Cloudmetix, which is a new cloud computing solution provided by Coventry IT Company, Netmetix. Cloudmetix have supported Stephen throughout his latest venture.

Stephen had originally attempted the paraglide two weeks earlier but winds were minimal restricting him from flying the glider successfully. However this fuelled his determination as he refused to submit the 8km he traveled and took to the skies again in a bid to achieve a more successful distance.

With only 2 years experience of paragliding, Stephen did extremely well to triple his personal record of 20 miles. He said: “The whole day was brilliant. I’m really happy with my success and the contribution that has been raised is fantastic. If the money I have raised can help towards saving the lives of others then it has all been worthwhile as this is a cause close to the hearts of both myself and my Managing Director, Paul Blore.”

Kate White, Director of Fundraising at Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research said: “We would like to congratulate Stephen as it’s a big challenge to have completed. All the money raised will go towards our vital research into better treatments and cures for blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.”

If you would still like to donate towards the cause you can do this at Stephen’s personal Just Giving site via the following url: http://www.justgiving.com/cloudmetix or email him directly with the amount you would like to donate at stephen.groundwell@netmetix.net
