Throughout the tender process, Littlefish showed a great understanding of our requirements including a service desk offering to match the size and demand of our business, a new IT architecture to offer a more robust and importantly a scalable solution.

Public Sector Partnerships

Joe McCarthy, Sales Director at Littlefish, explains: “Our expansion is being fuelled by an increasing number of public sector organisations that can purchase flexible managed IT services via digital frameworks. The CHP win has come under RM1058 and Littlefish has developed a thorough understanding of this sector and its distinctive needs. We are very proud to have partnered with Community Health Partnerships.”

Littlefish are already helping Parliamentary Digital Services’ (PDS) to handle peak IT support demand for 8,500 users, delivering a quicker and more consistent service to all staff across Parliament. They are also providing Managed IT Services to the Money Advice Service (MAS) and a number of Local Government Agencies.

 “To make a positive difference for our public sector partnerships, we have focused on desired outcomes and cultural alignment first, then worked in a consultative approach to develop a flexible service offering and truly collaborative approach that supports digital transformation” – Continues McCarthy.

“Our work with CHP commences with a full network audit followed by take-on of steady state support services covering service desk, pro-active server and network management, supplemented by tactical on-site support. A transformational project to implement Microsoft Office365 and Azure will deliver a scalable and cost effective IT platform that will help underpin future growth and services.
