IT Lab's role in Manchester's business community strengthened with Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) patronship.

For over two decades, IT Lab has been helping Manchester businesses with their technology. We also enjoy a close relationship with the GMCC, having supported the Chamber's own IT needs. Today we are delighted to announce our new status as the Chamber's Technology Services Patron.

Jonathan Broadley, IT Lab's Head of Marketing: "Our patronship allows us to engage with more local business leaders and support their success. We span every facet of IT and understand the profound impact good – and not so good – IT systems and practices can have on their businesses.

"Our Navigate – Integrate – Operate approach is designed to assist our clients through all key stages of technology adoption, whatever their sector. We take care to listen and understand not just what tech, solutions or services they want, but what they want to achieve.

"We are busily planning a schedule for the Chamber's Action for Business events and its magazine - The Business. This will address topics that we know are of pressing concern for most businesses, such as the GDPR and cybersecurity."

Stella Bowdell, Director of Membership at Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce stated: “I’m delighted that we are now developing the relationship with IT Lab to extend to our members. We have worked with the team for several years and seen first-hand their dedication to customer service. It’s in the interest of our members to partner with a first-class IT organisation -  increasing cyber threats and new legislations make it vital to provide information and services to help members protect their businesses. We’re looking forward to working closely with IT Lab to do this.”

Peter Sweetbaum, IT Lab’s CEO added: “The north of England is firmly rooted in IT Lab’s history. As well as our London and international locations, our 100-strong Manchester team works 24/7 to support local businesses and their offices overseas. Through our long-standing partnership with the GMCC, we have implemented a future-proof, scalable IT platform to support their growth. Becoming a patron feels like a natural progression of this trusted relationship. We are honoured to play a valuable role in this proud and special place.”
