Our Experience

I joined Heron IT with my firm SBS Matters in February 2020. I’m delighted to be part of such an expert IT firm. Together we bring the experience and capabilities of a full time IT team whilst saving companies thousands of pounds and eliminating the stresses often caused by computer problems.

Computing has run in my blood for a very long time:

  • It started with a COBOL training course in 1987
  • Then sales
  • Then installing PCs
  • Then building PCs
  • Right up to today’s state of the art Microsoft 365 technology offering big computing capability to firms at very manageable costs.
