Established 1981

Raven was founded in 1981.  That’s before the launch of the very first PC, and the IT industry as we know it was born.

 

We have worked with every version of Windows, Office, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL etc. since the beginning, and we know IT inside out.

 

A Trusted Partner

For over 35 years we have been providing IT services to businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes, from large Enterprises, colleges and councils to small startup businesses.

 

We take the time to get to understand your business and your people so we can provide technology that adds value, not buttons, and a friendly service your users can trust, not a faceless call centre.

Our Services

Solution Design

Raven designs solutions around your needs - not the technology. We take the time to understand your business - how you operate, your aims and hurdles, so we can help you do it better.

Consultancy Services

The success of any IT project hinges on the implementation. The key to this is knowing what you are doing, and that takes experience. Raven's consultants are all seasoned professionals with a wealth of experience, and more badges than an overenthusiastic cub-scout.

Our dedicated Helpdesk is staffed entirely by Microsoft Certified Professionals, so you don't have to waste your time explaining your issue to a note taker with a script!

Managed Cloud Services

"The Cloud" is undoubtedly the future, and offers great value to businesses with minimal investment, but like any big step should be handled with care. Raven has been managing hosted services much longer than the modern cloud has been around, and we are well versed in the ups, downs and pitfalls of moving to a hosted service.
