We realise that as modern technology company we have and an obligation to act ethically and honestly in all we do. That’s why we invest in our people, their families and our local community.
In August 2017 we took our first step in supporting local athletes by sponsoring Naomi Ogbeta, an Olympic triple jump hopeful.
Naomi, daughter of Mathias Ogbeta (our product owner and lead developer of DataSwitch), has been competing in athletics since she was 12. We have been following her career for several years in which time shes has won; gold at the British Championships, silver at the Manchester International Event and bronze at the Junior European Championships.
It was in a conversation with Mathias that we realised we had an opportunity to support Naomi financially and provide equipment and clothing. Naomi is a full time student at Manchester University where she is studying Politics and Quantitative Methods and has to self fund the cost of her athletics training.

Our community causes
We don’t have a company charity, instead we raise funds for charities that our close to our hearts. These charities have either directly helped one of our team or have been there to support a family member through a difficult time.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
DUCHENNE Muscular Dystrophy is one of the most common fatal genetic disorders to affect children around the world effecting one in every 3,500 boys worldwide. There is currently no cure for DMD, but for the first time ever, there are promising therapies in or moving into clinical development.
Macmillan Cancer Research
During the months of mid 2015 we supported a several of our team dealing with cancer, either directly or by a loved one, so this is definitely a charity we hold dear. Thanks to the research done by charities like Macmillan cancer survival rates are above 50% meaning more people now than ever get the all clear.
