Vote of confidence in Derby IT firm connecting office space across cities
A Derby firm is connecting offices across three cities after winning a contract to provide state-of-the-art IT services for the innovative series of workplaces.
L.E.A.D. IT Services has won the contract to provide sophisticated technology to CUBO offices in the city, as well as in Nottingham and Sheffield. CUBO is a multi-use workspace which allows companies to rent office rooms and use communal facilities without having to pay upkeep bills.
L.E.A.D. IT, which specialises in supporting schools, is itself based in CUBO Derby, which is a Grade-II listed building in Victoria Street, once the home of the Post Office. The company has provided joined up systems for CCTV, office access and meeting room bookings, as well super-fast secure internet, and world class printing services.
Company director Lee Jepson said that CUBO offered a great solution for his company and winning the contract to provide the IT services for the group was an added bonus.
He said:“We loved the funky CUBO space straight away, and there are loads of perks like the printing services and even barista coffee to provide a wake-up boost in the mornings.
“It created a better environment for everyone to work, and it’s a little bit more relaxed. There is hot desking space on the ground floor too which is really helpful.
“We love being in the city. For us, Derby is our hometown and the majority of the schools we look after are in Derby city, so keeping it local for us is really important.”
CUBO managing director Rebecca Brough said: "L.E.A.D. IT has enabled CUBO to offer excellent services to our members. We have super-fast secure internet, world class printing services, CCTV covering all sites, a Paxton system to ensure only members access the buildings, a meeting room booking system, to name but a few!
“They also deal with any emergency IT issues (if any) that we may have. As they are members at CUBO Derby it enables co-ordinating the works effortless.
“Plus, as members they also use the services which means they are always working to the highest standard they can. They have always pulled out the stops to ensure everything is working by any tight deadlines that we have given them."
