At Retail Assist, we stand out from the many IT companies in the UK for our ability to look forward. Whether that’s helping our customers evolve their IT strategy to meet the consumer needs of tomorrow or proactively stopping issues before they’ve even happened, we don’t believe in ruminating over past achievements: we’re always moving forward to the next goal.
That being said, we’re also very proud of our rich, retail history. The retail sector has certainly changed a lot in the 21 years that we’ve been working within it. IT companies in the UK have had to adapt to these changes, but our heritage means that whatever situations and challenges the retail sector might experience, we’re best placed to meet them.
And it’s not just the retail sector that’s changed. Over the years, we’ve also enjoyed branching out into other areas, such as hospitality, logistics and councils, bringing our wealth of IT know-how to new areas and companies not only in the UK but worldwide.
We’ve also grown our services and solutions offering to 68 countries worldwide, with IT Help Desk support being delivered in 7 different languages. Our team has grown from a handful of staff members to just under 250, with 8 different sites across the UK.
So, you could say it’s been a busy 21 years – and we can’t wait for what the next 21 (and more!) will bring.
