BELFAST, March 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
IT infrastructure expert Novosco has secured contracts worth more than £2.1million with a large housing association in the South East of England.
The company, which is headquartered in the NI Science Park, Belfast and has offices in Dublin and Birmingham, has secured the business with Swan Housing, which manages over 10,000 homes in London and Essex.
Novosco will provide ICT support services, including the provision of on-site technical services engineers and a remote service desk for the organisation's 300 IT users across 12 locations, as well as the installation and management of a wide area network and associated services.
It is the latest in a series of large contracts in the housing association sector that the Belfast-headquartered company has won.
Last year, Novosco secured a significant managed service contract with Manchester-based Northwards Housing, which has 13,000 homes and over 330 staff across more than 30 sites.
Novosco managing director, Patrick McAliskey, says: "The housing association sector has become very important to us, having developed considerable expertise in this area through a number of large contracts with some of the UK's biggest providers. We are delighted to win the business with Swan Housing and look forward to progressing the contract with their team."
Suzanne Wicks from Swan says: "We were really impressed with Novosco. Their bid was competitive and their knowledge and enthusiasm was evident. Their customer service excellence and investment in staff was a really good match for Swan's culture."
Novosco has been in business for more than 20 years and employs more than 100 people. It provides cloud computing and IT infrastructure services, including disaster recovery, managed services and connectivity services, to a wide range of organisations in the public and private sectors.
