Richard Bungay is the CFO and Chief Operating Officer for Mereo:
“As a small start-up with limited internal bandwidth we were looking for an IT
provider who was able to provide expert guidance, project manage the
initial set up and deliver to agreed timelines. itQED took a proactive
approach from day one, including provision of invaluable input to the office
layout and being on site at critical times. Upon moving into the office the
network was already installed and fully operational, and users were able to
get up and running within minutes. The subsequent support has been
excellent, with issues dealt with extremely promptly, whether on-site or
remotely using the telephone support line. We have a high degree of trust in
itQED to deliver the right solutions and to maintain our critical IT systems.”
