Covering the start of our company, the thinking behind it and the drive moving us forward, the feature in today’s Press and Journal provides a great insight into SureVoIP®.
It tells the intriguing story of how our MD, Gavin Henry, found himself in the position of starting Scotland’s only independent VoIP Provider.
Gavin Henry started the company after gaining a BEng (Hons) in Electronic and Communications Engineering. From there he gained an interest in programming, including Linux and Open Source software. This was the start of a recurring theme, and in 2003 he developed a consultancy selling Linux IT support.
The next milestone for the company came 2 years later, when Gavin took the decision to leave his full-time job, concentrating solely on developing the target market and capabilities of his own consultancy.
A big step for anyone, Gavin’s decision was encouraged by a growing customer base, and a desire to move into the exciting field of VoIP telephony.
SureVoIP® was born!
From there, the company has gone from strength to strength, adding to its portfolio of business-grade services along the way (including the ability to supply internet connectivity).
The company now has a customer base of over 1,000 customers, all relying on it to provide business-critical telecoms. SureVoIP® is the trusted supplier of telecoms to a vast range of companies, including oil majors, multinationals, national charities, TV channels on Sky, wind farms and national hotel chains.
