Creating a bespoke IT system for Consortium Investment Management LLP

Located in Central London, Consortium Investment Management LLP are an FCA authorised organisation specialising in structuring, operating and managing onshore investment schemes for private equity and pension investors. When the management team wanted to demerge their operations from a larger parent company, they needed an IT partner who could efficiently and securely transfer their existing systems across to a new operation.

Consortium Investment Management LLP worked with an external IT consultant to select the right partner. From a shortlist of three, the management team selected Ratcliff IT on account of their clear understanding of IT for small business and personal approach.

‘Ratcliff IT offered a bespoke and personal service. They didn’t try to sell us a costly cloud solution. They simply gave us what we needed.’ Ben Hobbs, Managing Partner comments

As part of the new set-up, Ratcliff IT recommended a move to Office 365 as an easier way of accessing email, together with office based servers for files and applications. Ratcliff IT seamlessly transferred the IT operations, setting up their new system. They took care of the Office 365 email and software migration including a bespoke line of business, CCH and Sage applications.

‘The move to the new system was painless. Minor issues were dealt with very quickly and efficiently by the team at Ratcliff IT’ stated Ben Hobbs, Managing Partner.

Ratcliff IT provide an ongoing managed IT support service for Consortium Investment Management LLP to ensure the business continues to run smoothly.

‘It was good to have a trustworthy partner to hold our hands throughout the process of transferring our IT operations. They continue to have our best interests at heart and I am very happy with the excellent service they provide.’ concludes Ben Hobbs, Managing Partner.
