Maintel has revealed rapid growth in the use of its cloud services in 2020 – achieving a 31 per cent increase in cloud contracted seats. Its overall number of contracted cloud seats grew from 78,000 to 102,000.
The company said this growth was driven by its expertise in the public sector as it helped NHS healthcare trusts across the country achieve the critical cloud availability they needed during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Contract wins during the year included Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust.
Ioan MacRae, CEO, Maintel, explained, “We’ve had a firm focus at Maintel on offering enterprise, mission-critical grade cloud services to our current and new customers. It is this level of service, our expertise and our flexible approach that we believe sets us apart from our peers.
“Our sales teams can offer the sector-specific knowledge and support that is vital in any digital transformation project. Our support of both public and private cloud also ensures we can be flexible in our offerings – helping customers switch to a hybrid-cloud approach, or supporting those wanting to undertake a risk-free, phased migration.
“As we progress, we’re keen to build out our private cloud services and work closely with the channel to bring our critical-grade cloud infrastructure and services to the market.”
Maintel said it aims to continue this momentum by working closely with channel partners to roll out its cloud and software services in 2021.
