A Northumberland company that provides secure corporate computing networks is on track to celebrate 20% growth after just two years in business.

Pivotal Networks, a subsidiary of leading North East cloud consultancy SITS Group, specialises in advanced networking solutions for private and public sector companies for which security and access is paramount.

Now, as a result of the increase in demand for its services, the company, based Northumberland Business Park, Cramlington, is expected to record a turnover of at least £600,000 at the end of the current financial year.

Formed in 2011, Pivotal Networks aims to provide a fast, reliable network for a single site, or link multiple sites together, providing businesses with centralised access to corporate data. In addition, it offers secure and reliable wi-fi and telephony.

Managing director Kevin Almond said: “Customers value someone who can offer a specialist service targeted around a specific technology and not only are we heavily customer focused but our clients know that every member of our five-strong team is an expert in this field.

“I firmly believe that our emphasis on hiring only the most highly trained and qualified staff and providing a very specific service is responsible for our continued growth.

“Networks are converging and now data, telephony and wi-fi solutions can all be managed centrally without several islands of complication to manage. Our success is built on the fact that we knit all of the competencies together to give our clients an all-encompassing network solution.

“We also complement the broader service provided by our parent company SITS Group, which specialises in all areas of cloud computing, from virtual desktop and server consolidation to cloud management and disaster recovery solutions.”
