QUALITY, EFFICIENCY, SCALABILITY

Wytech was formed in 2004 by a group of people passionate about providing higher levels of customer service than many other IT companies. Our aim is to keep clients for the longer term, build relationships and to completely eliminate any worries they may have about their IT and infrastructure. We offer fully managed IT solutions and excel at building bespoke systems and networks, providing a complete tailored solution to customer requirements. We deal with businesses of all sizes, but always provide you with honest and unbiased guidance, free of jargon, to deal with your problems, rather than our products.

We also manage the whole process, from wiring, cabling, and electricity in an empty building, through to post-installation support, allowing the client to concentrate on their core business, not their IT needs. We have extensive experience in the NHS and are therefore accredited to exacting standards, so you can be assured our service levels are both knowledgeable and responsive. We have direct procurement relationships with major manufacturers and distributors, so you can also be confident we have access to all the equipment we may need to build your solution.

WHY WORK WITH US

Whilst the business has grown since its inception in 2004, the founding principles have remained the same. High levels of personalised, customer service and high levels of up to date technical expertise help to build relationships with our customers lasting many years. We pride ourselves on being innovative and flexible in our approach to creating solutions for our clients. Our advice does not follow a prescribed formula and we aim to tailor our recommendations to their individual needs.

We are not tied to any particular suppliers or manufacturers, so we can supply the right solution, rather than one that’s easy for us. What you see is what you get; there are no hidden charges, no short-cuts, no doing things on the cheap and no walking away when there is a problem. We aim to be your supplier for ten years and to become a trusted source of knowledge, expertise, and advice. We don’t want you to think IT, we want you to call Wytech.

SALES REFERRAL PROGRAMME

At Wytech we are always keen to work with entrepreneurial individuals that can sell coals to Newcastle but don’t want the rigidity of a 9-5 job. If you are interested in learning more about the Wytech sales referral programme, please request a callback.

MEET THE LEADERSHIP TEAM

Mark Jones
Managing Director

Mark has spent over 30 years in the IT industry, originally in technical and support roles, firstly through an NHS Health Authority before becoming Technical Manager of an NHS software supplier. Recognising a need for excellent quality of service he formed Wytech in 2004 with Paul Stanynought and makes sure his passion for providing first-rate customer service is a fundamental pre-requisite in all that Wytech do.

Mark is married with two daughters and outside the business has a passion for Cuesports. He was a serious amateur snooker player who has achieved a 147 break and his daughter Hannah is a former multiple World Ladies Junior snooker champion.

Paul Stanynought
Technical Director

Paul began his career as a field engineer working on PC based networks, before moving to Derby and taking up a support role at Healthy Software, where he met Mark Jones. He co-founded Wytech in 2004 and now undertakes all the back-office technical vetting and specification of systems.

Paul has a BEng (Hons) in Electrical Engineering from Portsmouth University.

Dave White
Technical Director

Whilst studying for a degree in computer networks, Dave started his IT career with a work placement for a hi-tech manufacturing company in East Derbyshire. During this time he developed a passion for analysing the way in which people work and how a measured IT investment can improve the working lives of employees, leading to productivity rewards for the business.

Dave has been with Wytech since 2008 and takes pride in building solid working relationships with clients and making sure he understands the way they operate, allowing him to better advise on both immediate IT gains and longer-term IT strategy.

Away from work, Dave can often be found spending time with the family, building model railways, or even enjoying the occasional single malt whisky.

Robert Smith
Business Development Manager (rob.smith@wytech.co.uk)

Rob grew up in North London during the power cuts and three-day working weeks of the 1970s… [EDITOR: Rob this is far too depressing. Move on]. As a teenager… [EDITOR: Rob, none of THAT is going on the website. Move on].

After a decade working in the operating department of the Royal Free NHS, Rob moved into IT/Telecoms where he worked for a number of Mobile Operators (Vodafone, BT), started his own company to develop mobile payment software, and then spent five years as Channel Manager for Samsung B2B.

Rob joined Wytech as Business Development Manager in March 2019. His immediate focus is to work with the management team to consolidate the sales and marketing elements of the company, highlighting the unique capabilities, experience, and friendliness of its people.

When outside of work and not busy with his family, Rob can be found devouring Sci-Fi books on Audible, reading comics or – very occasionally – strumming his guitar.

MEET THE TECH CREW MANAGEMENT

Thomas Ward
Operations Manager

Thomas started life studying art, photography, and horticulture. He joined Wytech in October 2014 as a first-line support engineer and his work ethic and customer service quickly brought him a wide diversity of roles within the company and his dedication eventually secured him the position of Operations Manager.

His skill sets and competencies are varied and he can be found working on a Microsoft Windows Server deployment one moment and then crawling through loft spaces installing data cabling the next. Not afraid to get stuck in to the task at hand, he is perfectly placed to manage some of our key projects. Whilst horticulture and photography remain passionate subjects, Thomas has invested most of his time in recent years developing his technical knowledge and skills for the benefit of Wytech and its clients.

With his free time Thomas focuses on his family, spending as much time as possible in the garden and on DIY projects. He can also frequently be found sampling a real ale or visiting heritage steam railways.

David Hodgkinson
Technical Manager

David started working as a 1st line support engineer in 2012, since that time he has seen many changes to the working environment and his own career. After 6 months at Babington David was promoted to 3rd line support and SharePoint design. After just two years with the company he was again promoted to IT-Coordinator, a new role that required liaising with the in-coming support company.

David then moved to Aspire Achieve Advance in the same role but with a new mandate: build a functional helpdesk team and overhaul the company’s IT processes and policies. Unfortunately, the role ended with the business and after a brief period to reflect on his next choice of career, David chose to join Wytech as the Technical Manager. In that role David is responsible for maintaining the high standards of the Wytech helpdesk and its response using all the systems available to us, actively monitoring for hardware issues and ensuring our customers get attentive care for their issue.

In David’s personal life he tends to take things at pace, enjoys photography and can often be found in the Peak District taking pictures of the natural world. As you’d expect David is an avid console gamer; unfortunately the downside to this is that his kids never get to win at Mario Kart.
