A recent announcement has named Hessle-based Jupiter IT as a finalist at the 2020 UK IT Industry Awards.
Considered the country’s most prestigious IT event, the UK IT Industry Awards are hosted by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT and Computing, to recognise and lionise the people creating a better world through IT.
This year’s winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony, showcasing each finalist’s project and achievements on Wednesday 11 November.
Dan Gladstone, Director of Jupiter IT says:
“We are over the moon to be shortlisted in the category for Services Company Of The Year and very humbled to be included in the national awards with such well known companies.
“Our vision was to be considered the best IT firm in the region and now we are acknowledged as one of the best in the UK.
“Other entrants for the awards include; The Bank of England, Ministry of Defence and Lloyds Banking Group. Considering the calibre, we are pleased to have reached this stage and feel excited at the prospect of winning our category overall.”
Jupiter IT was established in 2007 by a trio of IT Consultants from the NHS, whose objective to be the IT department for many local firms – SMEs to large corporations has been achieved.
The firm has been shortlisted based on the service levels carried out by the team who focus on; proactive IT consultancy, cyber security and a fully managed service that is unique to the industry – ensuring IT systems are running to their optimum and any issues are resolved in the background.
The management were also recognised for their focus on developing the team, providing weekly training and offering incentives for service improvement.
Accounting for over fifty per cent of all crime, cyber crime is one of the biggest threats to businesses and IT and digital services have played a critical role during the current pandemic. Therefore, UK IT Industry identifies the IT professionals behind these services; the vital workers ensuring people and businesses stay connected during this crisis and keeping the national infrastructure working.
“When the world turned to technology at the beginning of the pandemic, the IT industry stepped up. For us, seventy-five per cent of our clients switched to working from home. We had to act fast to ensure all our clients were working as secure as possible. The Jupiter team worked around the clock to make this happen – part of the reason they are so deserving of this accolade.”
Technology is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, and there are hundreds of events dedicated to recognising success – but only one boasts the professionalism, scale and recognition to lead the way operated by BCS, The Charted Institute for IT and Computing. From transport apps and online shopping baskets to literally saving lives, modern IT impacts everyone.
