About Us

Sigma Consulting Services are based in Hampshire and have been supplying IT expertise since 1998. We are a compact and flexible consultancy company offering support services and software development to small and medium businesses across the UK. Our experience in the industry dates back over 20 years to the time when the personal computer was first emerging into the business market.

We believe that IT should be secure, flexible and enhance your core business without putting undue financial burden on it. Although our technology is often cutting-edge, our principles are old; if a job needs doing it deserves doing properly.

Our staff have experience throughout the IT life cycle from design, through development to support. Whether you are looking for a complete bespoke solution, upgrades or enhancements to an existing system or complete outsourcing of your support needs we are likely to have something to offer. We have worked in finance, pharmaceutical, multimedia, manufacturing, publishing and the outsourcing industry sectors so can probably help you articulate your requirements.

Throughout our history we have worked with a number of software development platforms from procedural to object-oriented ones. Our portfolio of products includes code using VBScript, Visual Basic for Applications, LotusScript, Visual Basic, C, C++, C#, SQL (on Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server & MySQL platforms), HTML, CSS, XML, PHP and Java. Supporting frameworks utilised include Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC), ASP, .NET and Ruby on Rails.

In today's connected world, flexible access to company data is required but this presents challenges for its security. We aim to design networks with security in mind and make use of encryption, certificates and Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology as appropriate. This also gives us the ability to offer Voice over IP (VoIP) systems increasing the flexibility of communications whilst significantly reducing costs from those of traditional telephony systems.

We prefer to offer pro-active support services as your IT systems should work for and not against you. However, we can quote for time and materials upon request. Platforms supported include Microsoft Windows (desktop & server), Apple Mac and Linux (both Debian & Red Hat derivatives). So that we can assist as quickly as possible, our support is normally delivered by telephone or on-line via remote control. On-site time is included in most of our support packages so that we can check the physical health of your systems too.

We continue to work with industry leading vendors to update our knowledge and demonstrate our abilities. Current staff certifications from Cisco, IBM, Intel, Novell and Microsoft are shown below:

Cisco Certified Network Associate Intel Technology Provider Gold Certified Lotus Professional Certified Novell Engineer Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer

To facilitate mobile working we regularly test our Voice over IP telephone solutions with soft-phones available on the market. We are pleased to recommend Zoiper for our customers' mobile telephony needs. For further product information click the logo below or contact us for a quote:
