Circle IT launches Circle Telecoms to service SME market

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Cardiff based Circle IT has launched a telecoms company to offer SMEs flexible telephony services that will drive down costs.

Circle Telecoms offers bespoke services to clients, providing centralised 'cloud' telephony packages as well as more traditional systems. It gives companies access to flexible solutions and enables them to make use of high quality services while avoiding the purchase of long-term hardware systems that can become obsolete over the lifespan of contracts.

Circle Telecoms is headed by Gary Summerfield and managing director of Circle IT, Roger Harry. Mr Summerfield joined the company with 14 years' experience in the telecoms industry.

Gary Summerfield said, "There is a huge gap in the market for what we are offering. I've been aware of more advanced hosted telecom systems for a number of years and it's extremely rewarding to finally have the right infrastructure to roll out these services to SMEs.

"By combining the technical skills in our IT division with our wealth of knowledge in the telecoms market, this puts us in a strong position to become a market leader in offering this kind of service. Customers will benefit from knowing that their infrastructure and system security is in safe hands.

"We have invested in our new business and its technology so that our clients can utilise our products and services without heavy capital expenditure." Roger Harry said, "The vast majority of telecom companies in the UK are not offering clients access to hosted telephony services to meet their business needs.

"As an IT company we understand our clients' systems inside out. As the integration between telephony and IT progresses it will become more and more important to have a system that delivers high quality but lower cost IT and telephony." Mr Summerfield added, "Teaming up with Circle IT was a natural fit and I look forward to being a part of what is a landmark time in the growth of the company." Founded in 2001 by Roger Harry and Alun Emanuel, Circle IT is the largest IT Support and Systems Integrator of its kind in Wales and currently provides IT support and managed services to more than a hundred organisations throughout the UK. It is Wales' only Microsoft Gold, VMware Enterprise, Dell Premier and Citrix Silver partner and specialises in delivering enterprise infrastructure solutions and services to small and medium businesses throughout the UK.

The company operates across the public and private sectors, providing a range of IT services including server virtualisation, advanced storage solutions, data backup and disaster recovery and full or partial managed IT support services.
