Manchester-based Cloud Technology Solutions (CTS) has expanded its city centre offices at Lowry House following a period of unparalleled growth of over 83% over the past three years and 76% in the last year alone. The Google Premier Partner has migrated nearly 7 million users into the ‘cloud’ including, most recently, Manchester City Council. It has just filled six vacancies in the past fortnight and is also currently recruiting for five newly created roles.
Founded 10 years ago, CTS provides business transformation solutions to a broad range of businesses across its cloud-based products. The CTS team have undertaken projects for Ladbrokes-Coral Group, Homeserve Plc and RoadChef including migrating over 7,000 council workers to Google Suite. CTS has also developed a strong offering in Google Cloud Platform and containerisation, offering eCommerce and SaaS businesses new opportunities for development.
The 80 employees based at its Manchester HQ have recently moved to a new purpose designed office to allow further collaboration with colleagues and clients. The new office is also home to the latest Google invention – a Jamboard (a collaborative, digital whiteboard that makes it easier to share thoughts and ideas in real time). They are one of the first businesses to be using them in the UK.
Speaking at their official launch event last week, CEO and co-founder, James Doggart, said: “The move to our new space is designed to allow us to be even more collaborative with one another. CTS is not a single solution business and we work with our customers across their whole business. We see ourselves as business transformation partners in the widest sense.
“We’ve seen a terrific period of growth and have been fortunate enough to work on some high-level projects including the Manchester City Council migration. We expect demand to continue and are looking for the right people to join us, either here at our head office or remotely. Technology transforms businesses, but IT businesses have had to fundamentally change. The traditional IT models as defunct, with IT needing to be much more aligned to business strategy than an administrative role. Only 20 percent of businesses have recently moved to cloud, of which 80% are currently Microsoft users, so there exists a real opportunity to grow CTS across multiple sectors.”
CTS will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year and is widening its product range to support existing customers manage their cloud estate.
CTS has developed its own proprietary migration tools ‘Cloud Migrator™, Migrator 365™ and Cloud Pages™ ’ – designed to make the move to the cloud fast, simple and effective. Over 10 million people have used or are using CloudMigrator™ and CloudPages™.
Doggart added: “It’s been a busy decade for CTS but we’re set for growth with a brilliant management team, experts in their respective fields and a community of support staff.”
