Last year, IT entrepreneur Jonathan Smy was approved for a secured
loan from Fleximize to move his small business to bigger premises. We caught up
with him to see how his small business loan has helped his business grow.
Whatever industry you’re in, information technology is likely to be a vital cog in the running of any business, from the handling and distribution of stock, to marketing, sales and communication with customers. And with technology playing an increasingly important role in everyday lives, many businesses that understand and utilize it fully are enjoying huge growth.
However, with technology requirements often as unique as the business itself, entrepreneurs often struggle to find IT solutions that align perfectly with the way they run their business.
Ipswich-based IT consultancy, Smy IT Services, is tackling this problem head on. Using its experience and ability to understand unique business infrastructures, the company is not only helping local entrepreneurs run their businesses more efficiently, but it is also helping them use technology to grow.
Founder Jonathan Smy first decided to go it alone after working for an IT services consultancy for years. He could see where the business could improve efficiency and become more customer-focused, but was unable to make the changes himself as it was not his business.
