Serco specialise in the delivery of essential public services, with over 50,000 people working in defence, transport, justice, immigration, healthcare and other citizen services across the UK & Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Middle East.

The Issue

Connecting Cheshire Superfast Business Broadband (SFBB) helps growth and growth potential to businesses in Cheshire and Warrington whilst maximising the opportunities of SFBB and associated technologies.

This is a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and SFBB support programme led by Peninsula Enterprise (part of Serco), delivered with Groundwork Cheshire on behalf of the Department for Communities, Local Government (DCLG) and local authorities.

The Solution

Peninsula Enterprise appointed DropJaw as IT advisors that can provide specialist advice and consultancy to SME growth or growth potential businesses in Cheshire and Warrington as part of the Superfast Business Service.

The specialist advice is delivered either one-to-one with a business or with a group of businesses by delivering small workshops.

The Results

We have worked with businesses to help define a robust IT strategy which will leverage the new SFBB rollout and support their long-term business objectives. We have also helped companies procure and implement new IT systems to support their long-term growth and viability.

ā€œRoy started by delivering specialist advice and support on behalf of the Connecting Cheshire Superfast Business programme from December 2013. This was in a 1:1 capacity and focused on a wide range of commercial areas where IT can have a positive impact. Roy has a very clear understanding on what challenges small and medium businesses face in this changing landscape, this is evident through the insight he shares and the value that this provides. Roy has a lot of commercial experience to draw upon, it is this knowledge that enables him and the people or businesses around him to succeed and achieve their own ambitionsā€.
