As the festive period commences and 2018 is almost in sight we can hardly believe 2017 is coming to an end! It’s been a brilliant year for the team at Systemagic, we’ve strengthened in numbers, moved to new offices, and won a number of awards. That being said it’s only fitting we share some of our highlights over the past 12 months!
As you’re probably aware in Spring we moved to our new 4100 sq ft offices In Bradford-on-Avon. While we’ve retained office space in Bath at our previous Waterhouse base to give ourselves and our customers more flexibility, we are a short 10 minute train journey from the centre of Bath and even closer to our Wiltshire, Somerset and more rural clients. After finding the perfect space to support our growth we’ve strengthened in numbers adding two new additions to our team! As well as this 2017 marked 18 years of Systemagic!
Relocating down the road has allowed us to work with some of the fantastic independent businesses in Bradford-on-Avon helping them to enhance their shops, offices and pubs with technology. We’ve helped a number of local businesses by installing wifi systems, implementing telecoms communications and offering general IT support and on site visits with our technicians.
We have found Systemagic’s invaluable help an absolute necessity. Their weekly site visits keep things running smoothly and are always available on the phone if something does go awry!

Our dedication to training and development was recognised this year when we were awarded with the ‘commitment to apprenticeship’ award by yeovil college. By recruiting apprentices we have been able to access a wider pool of talented young people that all bring something new and different to the team. We were elated to be recognised for our belief in the apprenticeship system.
Our largest project of 2017 enabled us to build a high performance IT network from the ground upward for our clients Norland College. The college has expanded to a new campus in Bath which has undergone an extensive refurbishment to bring it to the highest standards ready for new students. We were delighted to be a part of the project!
James and his fantastic team at Systemagic were attentive, flexible and hard working in the final push to meet the operational opening date. Systemagic efficiently planned the final move across Bath, They quickly and quietly ensured core of ce systems were back up and running, ready for returning staff. Throughout the move, the college suffered absolutely minimal downtime, and the support received ensured a very smooth, stress free transition!

Finally, we were really excited to announce in October that we won ‘Best Newcomer’ for our success implementing Microsoft cloud products at the Microsoft Inty awards in London. The award came after being recognised for our outstanding contribution as a partner during the year which saw us assist thousands of users to migrate to Microsoft’s Office 365 platform. 2017 really has been an award winning year for us, we also scooped the ‘Best IT & Software’ category in the Bradford-on-Avon business awards and were thrilled to be finalists at the Bath Business Awards in the ‘Best Marketing Campaign’ category.
As demand for our services continues to grow we plan to expand further in 2018. We’re already hugely excited to take part in some fantastic projects and we have reports and events in the pipeline to help our customers. As always we’re improving our processes, our service levels and the way we communicate with our clients, focusing on education and information.
