Bath, United Kingdom – 23rd November 2015. Zynstra a provider of hybrid cloud solutions for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), has been awarded the 2015 UK IT Industry Award for Infrastructure Innovation of the Year.
Zynstra beat off competition from nine other finalists, winning the award for its ability to deliver measurable customer benefits and for reinventing the way organisations buy and manage their IT infrastructure. Zynstra’s customers have seen improved efficiencies (reducing an IT team’s admin burden by over 90%), enabling the release of IT resources to focus on strategic projects rather than just ‘keeping the lights on‘ and travelling to remote offices to fix problems.
The BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards are a platform for the entire profession to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence. This year’s Awards featured 25 categories which covered: project, organisation, technology and individual excellence. The categories were open to organisations and individuals involved in IT across the public, not for profit and commercial sectors.
Nick East, the CEO and co-founder of Zynstra said:
