“Notting Hill is one of the largest housing associations in London, and Novosco looks forward to providing it with an innovative service across a wide range of areas including service desk, security, and disaster recovery,” said Novosco managing director Patrick McAliskey.
“Our team has unrivalled experience and expertise working in the sector, which has been a key factor in us securing the contract.”
Novosco employs almost 150 people and also has offices in Belfast, Manchester, Dublin, and Cork. Last year it acquired English specialist IT security solutions and managed services expert NetDef, further extending its presence in the UK market.
The company has clients in the public, private and voluntary sectors across the UK and Ireland, including Premiership football teams, some of the UK’s largest health trusts and many of Northern Ireland’s top companies.
At home in the clouds
In a five-year deal that commences this summer, Novosco will provide a range of IT services, including service support and delivery, application management, ICT commodity services, and strategic planning.
The company has built considerable expertise in the housing association sector, working for organisations including Swan Housing in the south of England, Northwards Housing based in Manchester, and Radius, which has some 33,000 homes in Northern Ireland.
Notting Hill is the third of London’s so-called G15 large housing associations that Novosco has secured as a client.
“With so many residents relying on us every day it is absolutely vital that our IT systems are efficient, stable and secure,’ said Andrew Muir, group director of Corporate Services at Notting Hill Housing.
“For that reason, we look forward to working with Novosco, who have a proven track record in providing a high quality service to the housing sector and beyond.”
