‘Purple’s mission is to empower its clients with business advantage through the correct use of technology’.

"Purple's ability to focus on our business requirements ensured our objectives were met regardless of the technology or vendor positioned ."
"Working directly with our board, Purple took ownership of our IT landscape from building the infrastructure to application estate. Purple engaged with every member of the board and key stakeholders in the business to ensure all our requirements were captured and delivered"
"There is no shortage of companies that could provide us a Unified Communications product. Knowing which one was right for us was the challenge. Purple provided the correct independent advice we required to make our decisions on."

How we began

The story began 3 years ago where two guys met and shared stories about their common love of business and technology. They both had very respected CTO roles working in the City of London and overseas but felt that the technology world was missing something….’a trustworthy advisor to manage the spectrum of technology, from infrastructure to applications.’ Both of them felt that the complete skill set for technology was limited across all verticals and that it was time to fill the gap.  The vision was to create a business whereby an output based, cost efficient service was available to all. So in May 2013, Alistair & Stuart began the Purple journey.

What we do

Purple allows its clients to have a single entity to manage its technology portfolio so that they can focus on achieving their company objectives.

Purple acts as an extension to its clients business to provide a knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy advisor for all technology requirements. This is made simple by Purple’s ability to engage strategically at all levels within an organisation. Purple is unique in it’s approach, as it works in a sector agnostic manner, ensuring that an output based model is the foundation for all of its work. Purple-section-break-white

Our beliefs

Purple’s clients believe that the world of technology is not black and white! It can often be a complex, confused, and convoluted arena that is expensive to manage if not done correctly.

Purple’s vision is to create a shift in this perception so that the technology used by its clients is seen as a valuable asset. Key to this process is the team that you engage with, and their values.

Our beliefs form part of the Purple DNA…..
