SGH’s managing partner, Emma Shipp, says: “Relying on Tikit for our outsourced IT function makes good sense as we can take advantage of all the benefits of a robust infrastructure and an agile services support. By outsourcing the management of our IT systems to Tikit, we will be able to keep a tight control on costs whilst calling on their industry knowledge to help us maintain our edge.”

“Our support provides customers such as SGH with a complete outsourced IT service, and our managed services agreement offers a full range of infrastructure support, from the desktop right through to the data centre,” adds Derek Kindercliff-Jones, head of Managed Services at Tikit. “SGH knows that we’re ready to deliver exactly the level of IT service they need, leaving them free to focus on their legal expertise to satisfy their clients’ expectations.”

Tikit’s Managed Services team provides a comprehensive range of support services to professional services firms, ensuring the IT processes are aligned with the clients’ business objectives.
