Happy Birthday RockIT
On Sunday 8th May 2016, RockIT will celebrate its 8th year in business and what a mind-blowing time that has turned out to be!
Having originally set up as a small micro business servicing home PC’s in 2008, RockIT’s CEO and founder, Rob Dance, had ambitions to grow a successful, customer-focused, national business. Rob noticed a gap in the market for proactive support with quick response times and with just £1000 for start-up expenses, RockIT went through its first evolution.
By 2009 the original team had doubled and new, larger, much-needed premises were sought. The hard work of RockIT staff was recognised over the next couple of years with the business being awarded Service Business of the Year, South Wales Business of the Year and the Top IT Company in Wales in 2010. Further awards followed in 2012 when MSP Mentor ranked us as the 22nd Top IT Support Company in Europe.
As an innovative business that is constantly evolving in accordance with client demands and industry changes, Rob recognised that more effort and emphasis needed to be put into our solutions’ development. This would prove a major contributor to future business growth. More clients meant more staff and, in January 2013 after investing a staggering £250,000 in upgrading the business infrastructure, a further site move took place to accommodate further growth.
2014 saw major development as further investment was made into state of the art technologies only used in the US. RockIT became a Labtech pioneer which (at the time) had never before been used in the UK. A further momentous occasion followed when RockIT first opened the doors to its new London office later that year.
Our continued success resulted in further recognition from MSP Mentor when we soared to 4th in the UK and 53rd Worldwide in 2015.
There’s no doubt that the personal dedication and ambition of the founding CEO has put RockIT on the map. But the real beauty of our business is the ongoing support from our loyal and ambitious staff. Their passion, drive and dedication to making the RockIT Vision a reality has helped shape the business to become what it is today.
So what does the future hold for RockIT? Not only can clients depend on us for exclusive product and service offerings, there’s always room for further expansion within the UK. We believe that the more sites we own, the faster we can despatch our engineers. In the long-term, this results in less downtime for our clients. The sky is the limit!!
Happy Birthday RockIT
