A Salford IT services company has won three high-profile contracts worth more than £2.5 million and is celebrating the success of two other public sector projects.

Salford’s LIMA has secured a five-year service contract with Southway Housing Trust to provide for 6,000 households across South Manchester. The deal follows the completion of a six-month digital transformation project for the Trust as part of its relocation to new premises.

Stephen Murden, head of IT at Southway Housing Trust, commented: “LIMA’s in-depth digital transformation project for us formed part of our relocation to new premises at Southern Gate on Princess Road in Didsbury.

“This was a hugely significant, business critical piece of work for us as not only did it ensure operations continued seamlessly during the move but it has also enabled us to enhance the high levels of customer service we provide to thousands of residents across South Manchester.

“From the outset, we were wholly confident in LIMA’s ability and expertise and our satisfaction at the end result is clearly evidenced in us now signing a five-year managed service contract,” he concluded.

The IT provider has also signed a £1 million deal with online investor company AJ Bell to help bring it closer to its ambitious growth targets and float on the London Stock Exchange.

Law company Brabners LLP has also invested £500,000 to to expand its core infrastructure to ensure business continuity and enhance the speed and capacity of its systems and support the firm’s continued growth.

The Salford-based company has completed a contract for the Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit to provide a secure cloud platform that will allow doctors and dentists greater accessibility, provide time, efficiency and ensure full compliance..

Herefordshire Police are also utilising LIMA’s technical solution services, which would provide annual savings of up to £300,000.

“We have continued to invest in the business over the past eight months, most notably improving our operational software through the implementation of a new CRM system in order to support our future expansion. We have also enhanced customer service and technical skills to benefit the delivery of projects,” said Lisa Thornton, CEO at LIMA.

“Our offer goes far beyond a technical solution, we underpin an organisation’s growth and help overcome business challenges. This approach is evident through our latest project wins with AJ Bell, Brabners and MLCSU and I’m hugely excited that we are able to play a role in their continued success,” she continues.

The Salford-based company is set to achieve its year-end target of £14.5 million, which will help underpin its growth plans to exceed £20 million turnover and employ more than 100 people by 2020.
