On Friday 17th March, the Duke of York visited the King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC) and here at Anglia IT Solutions, we were honoured to welcome the Prince into our offices to learn about what we do.
We moved to the innovative KLIC building last July. The £6million development offers extensive, state of the art facilities, including fabulous conferencing rooms and since relocating here, we have taken a further two suites to supplement our main office space.
It was a real privilege, therefore, to welcome Prince Andrew and Kevin Horne, chief executive of Norfolk and Waveney Enterprise Services (NWES) which runs the centre, to the new home of Anglia IT Solutions.
As a Royal Warrant Holder, for the work we do on the Sandringham Estate, it was a fantastic opportunity to meet with the Prince who spent some time with us discussing the business, talking about expansion and turnover, as well as how far we have come since we founded Anglia IT Solutions 13 years ago.
The visit also prompted us to reflect on how far Anglia IT Solutions has come! Originally set up to meet a gap in the market for professional and affordable IT hardware and software support for businesses across Norfolk, we have grown year-on-year. Today, we employ 12 staff and we offer a comprehensive range of products and services encompassing all areas of business IT, including protection, services and telephony.
We are always looking to stay ahead of the ever-changing market to develop and meet the needs of our clients, so we have also launched a comprehensive programme of e-training, with courses on many of today’s leading software packages including Microsoft Office, Visio, Sage, CAD Drawings, File Sync & Share and many more, as well as a suite of complementary soft skills courses.
We were really pleased to welcome the Prince to our offices to talk about our journey and also about the future of IT and the challenges we face protecting clients from cyber crime and cyber attacks.
