Connectivity and communications are the perfect mix for Lister IT Services

After the success of Lister Unified Communications and SitM joining forces two years ago, Lister is celebrating the anniversary by giving the section of the company a new name.

After the success of Lister Unified Communications and SitM joining forces two years ago, Lister is celebrating the anniversary by giving the section of the company a new name.

Telecommunications specialists Lister, which supply 1,500 companies across the UK, acquired old friends SitM (Strategic IT Management) in 2017.

Since the move Lister, has been able to offer a broader range of services to clients and increase the expertise with 12 staff from SitM now on the books.

With the move a success, Lister has taken the step to market the sub-section of the company as Lister IT Services.

Rob Lister, director of Lister Unified Communications said: "Joining forces with SitM has been a success, leading to a partnership that has made us stronger.

"There is no doubt that working with SitM and amalgamating has meant we have a broader service and product offering for our clients.

"We have been able to respond to the needs of our customers with the breadth of our staff expertise.

"And we are continually looking to the future, offering advice on the very best systems, apps and hardware for our clients."

With telecommunications and IT becoming ever more entwined, companies across the UK will be relying on organisations able to offer expertise on both sectors.

Communications and connectivity are vital for every business, regardless of size, to operate effectively.

The government has outlined plans for the UK to be a world leader in digital connectivity and with full fibre network programme and 5G Trials and Testbeds programmes.

That means the boundaries between telecommunications and IT will become less and less defined, making Lister IT Services the perfect company to supply the market.

"Lister Unified Communications has always been about offering a complete telecoms solution, with excellent customer service and technical support," Lister added.

"And for the past two years, we have incorporated access to expert IT support and a fantastic range of IT services".
