Giles Phelps, Managing Director of Spectrum Internet and Kevin Herbert, Operations Director at Net Support UK, spoke about how efficient IT systems and connectivity can increase productivity, reduce business costs and bring greater flexibility to operations; which is essential for all SMEs. Net Support UK celebrated its 15th birthday this year and wanted to encourage delegates to embrace change in their business and to support the youth of today in having a keen interest in digital technology.

With the New Year approaching we advise Welsh SMEs to speak to specialists at Net Support UK and Spectrum Internet regarding their current IT infrastructure and connectivity to find out how they can best take advantage of the technology and services available in 2014.
