BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Originally set up back in 2004 by the current vendor, this specialist IT business provides comprehensive IT services and support to Fire & Rescue Services located throughout the UK. The company supplies IT and communications equipment as well as ongoing maintenance and training to these public sector customers providing exceptional service levels and value for money.

The company currently maintains command and control systems and communication equipment for a number of UK Fire & Rescue Services and supplies equipment to many more. It also provides comprehensive and bespoke training packages to these clients covering command and control systems, system configuration, implementation, maintenance and administration. As part of this the company also provides a 24/7 Helpline.

The vendor runs the business on a part time basis and as such the business has very low overheads. Because of this it can offer extremely competitive rates to customers at the same time generating impressive profit margins. There is huge scope to expand the business as it is truly scaleable and has a captive audience.

Expansion Potential
The IT and communications market for the emergency services is a highly lucrative one and this business is entrenched within it having built up a formidable reputation based on exceptional levels of customer service and delivery. Whilst current trading has been difficult the market outlook is positive with many legacy systems in need of upgrading over the coming months/years. New technology is constantly being developed and this business is ideally positioned to embrace it and take it to this specialist market and increase its offerings.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The business has its own basic yet informative website but does not undertake any traditional forms of marketing, preferring to rely on referrals, case studies and word of mouth recommendations to generate revenues.
