Since 2003, Holistic IT (formally known as Holistic Technologies) have been supporting clients from across South Yorkshire and the UK, providing IT Products, IT Solutions and IT Support to businesses, the public sector and charities as well as developing strong relationships with leading vendors such as Microsoft, HP and Dell
Their collective expertise, excellent customer service and vast knowledge of all things IT ensures that clients benefit from the right solutions at the right price.
Owner, founder and Managing Director, Luke Shepherd, is passionate about technology and has more than 20 years’ experience within the IT sector working for Game and Insight Direct. Following his successful career, Luke decided to launch his own IT supply business and Holistic signed up with its first partners, officially opening the doors in January 2004. Luke is certainly the driving force behind the business. Taking a hands-on approach, he is focused on strategy, developing new services, managing the team and looking after customers by providing the latest technology and the right support.
The business started to grow and develop its fledgling customer base which led to investment in the team with the addition of sales, finance and support personnel. In 2006, they became a Cisco Partner and celebrated with a record year.
Holistic embraces the cloud and are one of the earlier adopters offering a range of cloud services including online backup and the original Microsoft BPOS system which is now known as Office 365. In 2007, they partnered with VMWare, Citrix and Asigra and were awarded ‘Trend Micro (Anti-Virus) Best SMB Collaborator of the Year’.
As the business expanded so did their customer base, successfully delivering IT supply, cyber security support and consultancy projects for major organisations nationwide, including: Aldi Head Office, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, South Yorkshire Police, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.
At the beginning of April 2017 David Haxton joined as Operations Director to help drive the business forward and as part of the wider vision for future success he began implementing the new growth, direction and strategy programme.
David heads up the day to day running of the business handling operations, sales, strategy and marketing. Prior to joining Holistic IT, David spent over 2 decades’ working for leading IT resellers including Ebuyer.com and Insight Direct as well as key vendors AVG Business and Avast.
Holistic continued to add new vendors and services, becoming HP Gold and Netgear Platinum accredited. To reflect the changing face of the business, David instigated the new branding and began work on the new website, changing their name to Holistic IT to encompass all the services and products they supply now and for the future.
The business has invested in the type of technology that enables them to proactively monitor client’s IT systems and system alerts that in most cases, automatically repairs the problem before the client even knows there is an issue.
“I am very excited about the rebrand and am very much looking forward to a positive and productive future for Holistic IT. The majority of the team have been with us for 10 years or more so I take that as being a good sign, we must be doing something right” said Luke.
This year, Holistic IT has been laying the foundations for growth with a new website, new branding, new products, new vendors and new services as well as moving into larger office space. They are also now part of a larger organisation with a collective buying power of over £800 million, putting them in quite an enviable position.
In summary, Holistic IT offer consultation and supply for anything IT related and as part of this they are working with clients on getting ready for the GDPR deadline, protection against Cyber threats and Mobile Device Management with more and more employees using their personal tablets and smart phones for work, managing the flow of data is extremely important.
