As we near the end of 2019, we take a look back over what’s been an amazing year for incovo. The whole team has worked incredibly hard and it’s clear from this list of achievements that their dedication to driving incovo forward has paid off. incovo has gone from strength to strength and after a much-deserved Christmas break we’ll be excited to put our plans for 2020 into action!
Head-hunting industry experts
We kicked off the year by welcoming a few new faces to the team. We were on the look-out for innovative technology experts, so we head-hunted Andy Taylor – our new Operations Director, and Craig Beveridge – our new Head of Voice and Data. They’ve proved to be valuable additions to the team, each adding a wealth of experience, ideas and enthusiasm to the mix.
Welcoming new customers on board
Word has spread about incovo’s customer-focused approach to telecommunications, office printers and IT services, and as a result it’s been a record year for us, with more new customers than ever before. We’re committed to building lasting relationships with every one of them, and we’re equally delighted that so many of our long-standing customers have continued to renew their contracts.
Securing professional partnerships
2019 saw incovo team up with some of the biggest names in telecommunications, print and IT, and we were honoured to achieve exclusive partnerships with the likes of HP and Avaya, and add accreditations with MyQ and PaperCut to our list of achievements.
Hitting the headlines
News of incovo’s success continued to turn heads in the technology industry and beyond, and as a result, Chris Thomas was approached by a number of media outlets for interviews. You can read all about the secrets of Chris’s success plus his big plans for the future in The Scotsman, Business Insider, The Herald, i-on magazine, Technology Reseller and Dealer Support. You can also view his exclusive TV appearance on That’s TV.
Expanding the business
This year we took the bold step of expanding into IT services and we’re now proud to offer comprehensive IT support and cyber security in addition to our core telecommunications and office printer services. It’s an exciting time to be working in the world of IT, with technology advancing at a record pace, and our team of digital experts have already helped a wide range of businesses stay ahead of the curve.
incovo is a family business at heart and the team share a passion for giving back. This year we were thrilled to help a variety of local groups and charities, including Hamilton Ladies Rugby team and the West Lothian Food Bank.
This year we were honoured that the hard work and dedication of the incovo team was recognised by industry leaders, with a flurry of award nominations. Not only did our CEO Chris Thomas earn himself a nomination and a coveted place on the shortlist of The Institute of Directors ‘Young Director of the Year’ awards, he finalised for the ‘Next Generation Award’ at The Herald Scottish Family Business Awards. And we rounded off the year by winning the ‘Business Growth Award’ at the West Lothian Business Awards – our proudest moment to date!
Looking ahead to 2020
After a well-deserved break over the Christmas holidays, we know the team will be eager to kickstart the New Year and start working towards our 2020 goals. Our telecommunications team will continue to switch businesses over to SIP, and our office printer experts will be showcasing the very latest technology at our new HP demo suite in Glasgow. Plus, our IT department will be working hard to upgrade businesses from Windows 7 before Microsoft ends its support.
Here’s hoping the year ahead is just as exciting, challenging and rewarding as 2019 has been, and we look forward to helping you take your business to the next level in 2020!
