Getting IT right

Prosource is a managed IT services provider focusing on infrastructure, operational and project requirements across the corporate enterprise market. It is the largest independent IT services company in Scotland and provides global coverage via offices in Aberdeen, London, Houston, Calgary and Dubai.

 “The one constant in IT is change,” note the Founding Directors Stewart Proctor, Steve Mackie and Alan Cowie. And no single industry has seen more change than IT. “During the past 30 years, we have witnessed several sea-changes in technology and how it is serviced, including migration from the multi-million-pound mainframe to the £500 desktop,” they add.

There has been a mass outsourcing of services followed by offshoring, and now a move to cloud-based storage and management systems. Not to mention the rise and rise of ever-connected, high-speed internet access. Prosource prides itself on having managed to stay ahead of these trends.

Moreover, the company also stayed ahead of the financial crisis. “In a five-year period, during the biggest downturn for a generation, Prosource trebled its revenues and headcounts,” say Stewart, Steve and Alan. “We are optimistic that as the general economy continues to improve, there will be further opportunities for Prosource to grow in the next five years.”

The trio attributes Prosource’s success to its values and ethics. “Doing the right thing for our customers has seen us become a trusted partner and not just ‘another vendor’. During times of adversity, it is even more important to hold true to your core principles.”
