Why Fordway?

Fordway’s IT consultancy provides customers with better results, faster. We work with UK based medium to large enterprises, across all industries, and UK public sector organisations. Our skills and expertise are applicable to all; every organisation needs effective, efficient and optimised IT infrastructure, whether run internally, under contract with service providers or run on the cloud.

We have nearly 30 years’ experience doing this. Each year we assist over 100 organisations – there’s every likelihood we’ve seen the issue, or something very much like it and helped another customer resolve it. We’re fully trained in and accredited to established best practice such as ITIL, SFIA, COBIT, ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials. We are also versed in IT security best practice, and have UK Government National Cyber Security Centre Certified Consultants on tap. When we collectively identify best resolution we deliver change using Prince 2, Agile, or these days more commonly a mix of both.

We’re vendor independent – we’ve worked with most of them. In our view the actual technology itself is very rarely the issue. The key is to ensure you know what you really need from it, and why. Our job is to ensure you achieve what you need, faster, with higher quality, and more cost effectively than you could have without our help.

How do you ensure your advice is relevant to my organisation?

Our Business Alignment services enable organisations to align their IT infrastructure to their business requirements, ensuring it provides an effective platform for the services that add value to their organisation. Whether you want to deploy an in-house solution or use our managed services, all of our services adhere to BS25999, ISO 9001 ISO 14001, ISO 20000 and ISO 27001 compliance standards. We deliver:

  • A review and baseline of existing IT structures and systems
  • Strategic planning for the implementation and operation of IT structures and systems
  • Implementation of recommendations
  • Use of best practice methodologies such as APAC and ITIL, where appropriate.

Our services cover all aspects of data access, data management, availability and recovery and include:

  • a review of the existing solution
