Fundamentally we are a service driven company so we look for service in return. It sounds funny to say it but Skanco care about us- and caring is so important in my opinion.
Established in 1998, Search and Select decided early 2015 that it was time to invest in a more robust IT infrastructure to cater for their staff growth and more complex IT requirements. Whilst happy with their existing IT support, the reliance on a one-man team who was not 100% at their disposal was not enough for their expanding recruitment business.
Why choose Skanco? Sally Fenton, Managing Director explains “we spoke to a number of IT companies on the island and found that Skanco offered the best solution that worked for us at the right price. They really took the time to understand our business, our specific requirements and went to great lengths to ensure we understood the options being presented to us. Being a small business, keeping within budget was vital and Skanco understood that”.
The #1 recruitment company on the island, Search and Select hold many prominent contracts with blue chip clients who demand corporate levels of service from their suppliers. How does this affect who you work with as suppliers?
“We need to have confidence in our 3rd party providers. IT security is of the utmost importance so we count on Skanco to advise, safeguard and guide us through some of the more technical challenges we encounter. Skanco holding their ISO info sec 270001 accreditation gives us and our end users the confidence that we are in safe hands.
We’ve developed a great working relationship with the team at Skanco over the two years we’ve been a customer. Historically it had been a concern that as a business we might fall behind with technology. Skanco recognised this and our account manager and the senior engineers who come to our office take the time to discuss new products and technology we may be interested in or might be relevant to our industry.”
