unleashed think differently about I.T.
We use technology to solve business problems.

We pride ourselves on being a boutique IT consultancy with our main objective to work with our clients in tackling the problems that exist between IT and the rest of the organisation.

We are problem solvers, looking to align IT strategy with organisational strategy, getting projects done that couldn’t otherwise be achieved due to pressures on time and budget.  We don’t limit ourselves by working with particular manufacturers or partners, we work with them all – and implement the most effective technologies for solving your problems.

Unleashed use a consultative approach in dealing with our clients, we prioritise business problem solving over product selling.

There is no pressure, there is no hard sell, everything at unleashed starts with a cuppa and chat (probably a biscuit too) – we want to listen to your problems before we recommend products and solutions.  Before you call, we’d also like to tell you that everyone at unleashed:

  • is technical – whilst we have experts, everyone has a good degree of technical expertise and can talk in detail from the initial conversation
  • is aware when they need help – if we feel you need more detail, we will bring in our experts
  • is a smart creative, problem solver – we just love making organisations better for the solutions we develop
  • is a qualified techy or project manager – we have PRINCE2 trained project managers available on every project we do
  • as a sense of humour – whilst we take our work seriously, we like to have fun whilst doing it!

The unleashing process – it’s at the heart of everything we do

How can you provide a solution when you’ve not listened and understood the problem? How can you implement without working with your client as a team and transferring skills? How can you be sure your solution always remains fit for purpose and supports your clients changing business needs? Why not find out if your current IT partner thinks like we do!

Help: is a four letter word

Those of you that follow my blog have probably realised that I have a lot of peeves, in fact I wouldn’t have a Peter Griffin like blog category called, ‘Grinds my Gears’ if I didn’t.

Blogging isn’t necessarily a tool solely to name and shame those who have wronged you either (unless it’s Microsoft). I never feel as if I’m a person who is steadfast in my opinions. New media has given us an opportunity to reach out to people easier, bypass gatekeepers and those less effective members of organisations and really connect with those who are like minded… […]

Coalition of Good (IT) People

March 25th, 2015|0 Comments

Language is a funny thing, it’s funny how a catchphrase or label can turn words from having positive to negative connotations. Coalitions in the second world war were the norm for governments, quite positive, after all we triumphed. The current UK coalition, well the jury is out. George Bush once use the phrase “coalition of the willing” to refer to the countries who supported the invasion of Iraq. You can see how something positive can easily turn negative. Same goes for partnering, partnerships and the like. Late 90’s and early 00’s we’ve talked nothing other than partner this partner that. We’ve outsourced lots of things to some very poor partners. Especially in the public sector. Would you see partnering with G4S or Serco as a good or bad thing?

The real gift though is to go against the grain, I used the phrase “coalition of good IT people” to describe the other companies that we work with, those who refer us work and we refer it back. Not because of any commercially beneficial arrangement (if there were, I’d be driving a better car) – simply because I know those people will do a good job for the customer. Experience of working together, builds trust, builds a network of people you’d keep going back to. Regardless of whether these people work direct or indirect for a company, it’s more important to deal with good, genuine people who deliver… […]

Exchange and .local and internal SSL Certificates

March 23rd, 2015|0 Comments

Recently I’ve been doing a lot of work for clients moving them from older version of Microsoft Exchange – even as far back as Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2013 or to Microsoft Office 365. I frequently recount to my customers that when I started doing IT work, I used to put Exchange email systems in as part of Small Business Server usually under the duress of the management of the company’s – most management were reticent to have email as it was a means for staff to ‘mess about.’

Whether you agree with that sentiment or not, these days any email outage is accompanied by management’s ferocity of attack against the IT department! […]

It’s time to put the Open in Openreach

If like me you’ve spent years in the IT industry, you’ll have no doubt had to dabble in telecoms. As such you’ll have a few choice words to say about BT, indeed any telecommunications provider. We all have our opinions on BT, but things have really changed since 2006 when through a competition ruling BT span out the company that owned its infrastructure and ‘last mile’ connectivity to a separate company to allow all telecommunications providers access to its infrastructure.

For a while this worked well, I actually thought for a while things were getting better – I actually saw a few apprentices being trained up and the quality of the work got better. That didn’t last for long before the battles started. BT is one of the most process driven organisations in the UK, the way it controls the tasks that its workforce is actually pretty amazing – although like any organisation that puts business process before customer satisfaction – it’s lost the plot of what it’s supposed to be doing… […]
