The Market Potential:
“Small businesses accounted for 99.3% of all private sector businesses at the start of 2016 and 99.9% were SMEs.
Total employment in SMEs was 15.7 million; 60% of all private sector employment in the UK. The combined annual turnover of SMEs was £1.8 trillion, 47% of all private sector turnover in the UK”*, so this market has HUGE potential.
Add to this the fact that: “There were a record 5.5 million private sector businesses at the start of 2016. This is an increase of 97,000 since 2015 and 2.0 million more since 2000. The number of employing businesses increased by 14,000 and the number of sole trader/self-employed businesses by 84,000, with the annual growth for both groups being around +3%.”* So you can see your service will be in potentially high demand.

The Need For Managed IT Services:
SMEs cannot always afford to spend the time to research the ongoing evolution of technology, but they also cannot afford to fall behind on the aspects of technology that will keep their businesses running efficiently.
As the IT industry has evolved beyond the ‘break-and-fix’ model of past years into an outsourced model that ensures that SMEs have all the solutions, software and support that they need to remain relevant and efficient the demand for managed IT services is now exceeding the industry’s ability to meet the demand, and this is where you and AO come in.
The current IT support industry is mainly made up of small-time technicians who don’t have the tools, the support, or the business infrastructure necessary to offer the correct level of customer service that the 21st century business owner needs and expects.
The A&O Business Opportunity
A&O IT is creating a model which will become the “go-to IT team” for SMEs in the UK. We are able to offer fast turnaround to IT issues; but, more importantly, we also act as an IT advisor to our customers. We can monitor their vital IT systems to prevent problems and eliminate potential downtime. We also analyse their businesses to recommend specific technology solutions that can help them grow. We will not just be the team that SMEs call when something stops working; we aim to be their business partners providing insight, guidance and access to new technologies that can help make them more efficient, more profitable and more secure.
