Keighley IT firm wins tender to supply Town Council

Keighley based IT provider, Cosurica has been selected by Keighley Town Council to supply, install and support new IT systems for their 11 office staff, based in the Civic Centre in Keighley town centre, and their 30 council members based throughout the Aire and Worth valleys.

Work will start in the next month to install a wide range of products including secure public and private wi-fi networks throughout the Civic Centre.

Gareth Harrison, Managing Director at Cosurica, said “We want businesses and other organisations in our town to thrive. A modern workplace with up to date technology really can help organisations of all sizes to increase productivity, improve security & efficiency and ultimately reduce costs. We support local firms in identifying the right products for them so they achieve best return on their investment, protect their valuable data and avoid expensive mistakes.

Gareth said “Keighley is home to many highly successful and growing businesses. We’re proud to have built long-standing relationships with so many of them. We are always keen to hear from any firm interested in how technology could help them achieve their growth goals. ”

Cosurica will implement various systems for the Town Council to enable easier and more secure sharing of documents and other data. Council members will have secure access to important and highly confidential documents for meetings without the need for costly printing and postage. Cosurica will also provide on-going end-user support and systems management services to ensure everything continues to run smoothly and efficiently.

Anne Wilson, Locum Town Clerk, said “Tender documents were sent to several IT firms, across Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. It was fantastic to discover we’ve got such a highly experienced, professional and approachable IT firm right here in the centre of Keighley.

Anne said “Improving the ways we communicate internally, without using reams of paper and having the expense of postage for 30 Councillors, replacing aging IT systems and having access to responsive support have all been on our wish list for several years. It is essential we protect our data very carefully. We also wanted the ability to offer modern IT solutions for the public using the Civic Centre which will enhance the use of the hall and meeting rooms. The Cosurica team put a huge amount of effort into fully understanding our needs, listening to our concerns about data security and finding the right solutions for us.”

Gareth Harrison and Michelle Thompson, Sales Director, started out as a home based business in 2006, moving into their current premises in Keighley Business Centre on South Street in 2007. The business now employs 9 local people to deliver a wide range of IT solutions and services and has been a Microsoft Gold Partner since 2008.
