North Wales tech firm to double its business a year after launching

High Stream Solutions, a technology services provider based in North Wales, is on the verge of doubling its business just a year after launching.

Set up in 2017, the company provides technology solutions to more than 29 small and medium-sized businesses across North Wales. But it’s looking to double this number in 2018.

The outsourced IT provider recently received “Silver Partner” accreditation status from Microsoft, meaning it can cater for more companies across the country.

It will also be able to develop bespoke support packages for companies that use Microsoft software and cloud solutions. These services will be targeted at small and mid-market firms.

Founded by technology specialist Paul Williams, the company started off with zero customers and now provides day-to-day support to eleven high-growth firms in North Wales.

Over the past few months, Paul has also formed partnerships with the likes of computing giant Dell and printer brand UTAX, allowing it to deliver their hardware directly to clients.

This year, Paul said he wants to achieve more “rapid expansion”. He explained: “We’ve had an incredible first year in business – signing new clients and agreeing strategically important partnerships. And now we’ve had a taste, we have some really bold ambitions for growth.”

“We’re confident about our ability to scale our business. Big brands and SMEs in Cheshire and North Wales are coming directly to us because they’ve been failed by their existing IT provider, or they’re looking to save money by outsourcing their IT provision.

“And with IT being critical to the success of almost every company, it’s smart business to make sure it’s working as hard as possible.”

However, Paul said it’s not just about delivering the best tech. “Business owners and IT leaders are looking for that personal touch and a relentless focus on doing things right and providing the best advice, quickly. It’s how we’re winning new business and shaking up what is a very competitive market,” he added.
