SKANCO IS NOW PART OF ARGON TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, ENABLING THE BUSINESS TO OFFER A WIDER RANGE OF SOLUTIONS TO ISLE OF MAN BUSINESSES
Skanco was incorporated in 1985 as a direct result of the launch of personal computing with the IBM PC. Skanco’s first services were the supply of stand alone PC’s and accounting software to primarily the accountancy profession. This led on to networking, installation and hardware maintenance of the supplied pc’s and servers. As more businesses became reliant on their IT systems Skanco set up a Disaster Recovery Centre which is now better known as a Business Continuity Centre. Skanco has continually built on its range of services from its beginnings in procurement through to complete management of clients’ IT with our clients taking some or all of our varied portfolio of services. In becoming part of Argon Technologies we have strengthened our core services and can also offer additional services such as Print Management, Document Management and Data Cabling.
