Audent Limited leads a group of 10 separate companies to meet the requirements of it’s corporate customers. Like VMware, we manage virtual teams to meet the IT demands of major corporates. The difference with us is that we engage our resources only when they are needed. This makes us very lean and agile.
The analogy is a bit like comparing a large corporate IT supplier with thousands of employees (like an old mainframe, always on even when not processing) with Audent spinning up expertise when required in virtual teams (like a modern VMware estate, only on when needed). The consumption of power, fuel and other vital resources is hundreds of times lower at Audent because we are only using the resource pool of 600 experts when needed. This enables us to maintain competitive edge with reduced overheads.
Our carbon footprint is massively reduced. Like a pilot light, our core team of senior managers is ready to react fast and spin up expert teams quickly to meet demand. From Cyber Essentials consulting to implementing a hybrid cloud infrastructure, we are ready to help, fast.
It has been said that companies that grow to over 100 staff start to forget who their customers are and their management often forget who their staff are. Smaller companies care more about their customers. Let’s face it each £1 means more to small company compared to a massive entity.
We have taken 10 smaller, specialist companies spanning the important areas of IT and combined them in the Audent Consortium. This gives us scale and expertise to compete with the big players yet we still value our customers and they get the attention they deserve. We have also invited some of the top experts globally to join us and ensure we deliver the best solutions. Many are drawn to us because our philosophy is that technology is secondary to customer requirement. We are requirement led and not product led like so many other IT integrators.
