Most business people will agree that deciding upon the best communications options for a company can be a bit of a minefield.

That’s why having iData and its team of experts on your side and ready to guide you through the myriad of options available is the perfect solution.

Based in Mold, Flintshire, this respected firm is spot on at finding ways in which emerging technology and products can benefit clients while saving them money and establishing superb relationships with them.

“Is your public sector organisation trying to find the most effective way to achieve a transformational agenda or is your large company striving to achieve better ways of operating?” Asks iData’s managing director James Wilson.

“Whatever your priorities our professional key thinkers will provide inspirational ideas and invaluable advice on the latest workplace trends and how they can benefit your business.”

Formed in 2008 by three individuals each with a knowledge and passion for all things mobile, iData has quickly supersized to 23 employees, all of whom share their passion alongside the desire for excellent customer service and value for money.

Now incorporating an extensive IT and structured cabling department alongside a dedicated sales and customer service team, the company has already notched up some notable achievements.

Three years ago, it provided Flintshire’s 96 schools with wireless access points and a restructuring of their cabling networks as part of the Learning in Digital Wales (LiDW) initiative and it is also a preferred supplier for the structured cabling framework agreement with the National Procurement Service (NPS).

This was after achieving the highest score in the procurement criteria which included sections such as technical capabilities and quality of service. Having won this tender, it can now offer its services to any North East and North West Wales government, emergency services and third sector organisation.

Customer’s security concerns are also a top priority, as demonstrated by iData’s Cyber Essentials certified status.

The accreditation is a minimum requirement for suppliers bidding for certain sensitive information and personal information handling government contracts and immediately signposts iData’s continuous commitment to providing secure services and solutions to all clients.

Its core business areas include:

  • Business mobiles, providing Vodafone, EE and O2 business tariffs.
  • IT support, including computer security, Cloud solutions, Cloud Lync, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft 365 and data capture.
  • Hosted telephony, specifically Horizon phone systems.
  • Landline telephone solutions billed via its own billing platform.
  • Business broadband, ranging from business grade to fibre broadband.
  • Structured cabling, including Cat5 and Cat6 and fibre networks. The provision of all associated services puts the business at the forefront of data cabling.

“However your business works, we at iData take pride in understanding it and will work closely with you to find an ideal solution that will not only cover all its communication and technology needs, it will noticeably improve and develop it,” promises James.
