Warwick IT firm expands into larger premises to develop software services

ZenZero expansion 1A Warwick-based IT company is proving it has the software for success after expanding into larger office space where it plans to develop an existing strand to the business.

Zenzero IT Solutions, which was set up by Anne and Andy Tasker in 2003, provides bespoke IT support to businesses operating in a variety of sectors across the UK. The company enjoyed a substantial uptake in business during 2014 with expected growth of 50 per cent year-on-year.

The firm has also recruited five new members to its team with plans to take on an additional technical analyst.

As part the expansion of its headquarters at the University of Warwick Science Park’s Warwick Innovation Centre on Gallows Hill, Zenzero is planning to further boost its offering with the expansion of Zenzero Software.

The additional arm to the business utilises the latest proven Microsoft technologies to develop innovative software which is custom-built to meet specific business requirements of customers.

Zenzero, which also has an office in Essex, recently became a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner in recognition of outstanding technical skills in data management, software development and cloud computing.

Will Brooks, commercial director at the firm, said: “We are always looking at ways in which we can grow the business and with a highly-skilled team on board we felt it was the right time to promote the software development side of the business.

“This has definitely been more of a focus since we moved into larger office space at Warwick Innovation Centre as it enabled us to expand our team, our skillset and also launch two new websites.”

He added: “We have had a really good year having secured a number of large contracts as well as witnessing an increase in firms looking to refresh their IT infrastructure.

“In particular, as part of establishing Zenzero Software, we have been working on redeveloping products which were originally created for Legacy technology and aren’t compatible on modern desktops.

“We have also seen an increase in demand for cloud computing services and we are currently helping businesses of all shapes and sizes move their IT systems to the cloud by using Microsoft’s Office 365 platform.

“Becoming a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner has given us that extra certification, helping prospective customers are able to recognise our commitment to delivering high-quality support and services.”

Karen Aston, centre manager at Warwick Innovation Centre, said: “Zenzero has been at Warwick Innovation Centre for over a decade and it is fantastic to see that the firm continues to achieve significant growth year-on-year.

“Our flexible approach to property has enabled them to move to larger offices within the building several times over the last few years.

“The IT sector is a fast-paced industry with new technologies being developed every day. We are delighted that company has been able to boost its offering as part of its expansion and we look forward to offering support to them in the future.

“Warwick Innovation Centre is well-placed to support companies looking to accelerate growth with a wide range of flexible office space available as well as providing links to the University.”
