Newtownabbey based Northgate Managed Services has cemented its reputation as one of the UK’s leading providers of ICT services by being named ‘IT Supplier of the Year’ at the British Computer Society (BCS) and Computing UK Industry Awards 2011.
The award recognises Northgate Managed Services' dynamic growth and its strong financial performance which saw the company return a 21% increase in its revenue, successfully win more than 80 news clients in a range of sectors; invest significantly in staff training and development, strengthen industry partnerships, and create more than 100 new jobs across its UK operation.
Commenting on the award, Andy Ross, Chief Executive, Northgate Managed Services said, “We are delighted to have won the 2011 IT Supplier of the Year Award. This is the second time in 3 years that we have won this award and reflects a huge amount of hard work over many years and is a fantastic endorsement of the services and IT solutions we provide to our clients.
“None of this would be possible without our staff. Each individual plays a vital role in the client engagement lifecycle and in support of this we have rolled out a significant programme of training and development. The results have been pleasing, with customer satisfaction surveys returning a rating of 98%.
“Being named 2011 IT Supplier of the Year is a great honour for all of us, especially against such strong and notable competition. I know that winning this award will motivate us all to work even harder to retain the high standards to which we all aspire.”

“The variety of organisations from across different sectors that collected awards this year reinforce the fact that today the IT profession is integrated into the business and is increasingly being seen as a partner that can help deliver real value, benefit and success.
“It also highlights the extent to which IT is embedded in our society, from our healthcare, the high street and car production, to the stage; IT is the enabler behind so many businesses in the UK.”
