A BRIEF HISTORY OF PS TECH
PS Tech – Est. 1991
PS Tech was originally established in 1991 as a local repairer of home computer systems. Paul Stanyer, was a young man with a keen interest in computers, programming and running a business. Over the years, Paul’s career took him on a journey that gave him experience and understanding in many areas of business.
Paul took a break from running his own business in 1994 when he took a role with IBM, working in field engineering, progressing quickly through to a Senior Technical Specialist for the South East area of the UK.
Paul left IBM in late 2000 when IBM decided to outsource elements of its field engineering team. It was time to gain some management and large system experience. Paul joined a prestigious independent school in South London as IT & Systems Manager and spent 12 years building a team and a system that was the envy of other independent schools across the country.
Paul implemented an ITIL based service desk, and also qualified as a PRINCE2 Practitioner which aided the many projects Paul and the team were managing or involved in.
During his time in this role, Paul resurrected PS Technology, and used his knowledge and experience to build a reliable base of clients who too were young growing businesses, looking to take advantage of the maturing technologies now in reach of businesses with more limited means.
Managing a full time role and running a growing business reached a crossing point at the end of 2012. Paul left the school to which he gained so much varied experience and contacts, and PS Technology was launched as a full time venture.
From early 2013 PS Technology has continued to grow and gain the respect and appreciation of a wide spectrum of clients in a large variety of industries. Projects included:
- A number of successful desktop and laptop refreshes for small businesses
- Wireless network installations at a number of prestigious locations including an impressive manor house nested in the North Downs, near Oxted, Surrey
- Started work with an major national construction company, consulting on their 1800+, nationwide PC and laptop update/refresh. This £2.1m project was completed successfully late 2015.
In 2015, the company was re-branded PS Tech, and a number of major changes were implemented to continue to deliver the best possible service, including a move to our new offices where we have dedicated service desk, separate workshop space and also hot desk office space for our clients to use in planned and emergency situations. This space also doubles up as cost effective meeting room and training room space.
In March of 2019 we opened a second office in Sussex, moving our help desk and client services departments to this new, high tech location. Not only has this improved our reach to our clients, but also will enable us to grow PS Tech and deliver a wider range of services to our customers.
