Our mission is one of ‘uniting technology, inspiring people’. I’ve been immensely proud to see the talented AdEPT team harness a multitude of technology to help organisations achieve success.
The world of technology is increasingly complex, with a storm of innovation and a multitude of options now available to organisations.
This world is also converging, with networking, communication and technology all combining into seamless solutions able to deliver fortune-changing power.
However, this rapid pace of change can at times become bewildering. The Internet of Things, 5g, Artificial Intelligence, Unified Communications and of course the Cloud all provide massive capability.
So our aim is to demystify this ever changing world, and in our pragmatic way achieve our mission of uniting technology and inspiring people.
We have proven our ability to do this time and again, delivering for over 12,000 customers throughout our 15-year life.
AdEPT is now a powerful business of over 300 talented individuals, focused on delivering success in a personal and committed way. It’s how we’ve attracted and retained customers across a multitude of industries, from legal firms, construction companies and retailers, to the NHS, Central & Local Government, and we’re proud to count some 3,500 schools as customers.
This personal approach is why we are achieving great customer satisfaction scores, but rest assured we won’t rest on our laurels.
I hope you enjoy this introduction to the larger, new look AdEPT, and that it encourages you to be curious.
We look forward to helping you in the future, and continuing to learn, adapt and evolve.
