Fifosys was founded by Mitesh Patel in 2001 and has provided IT support and strategy services for businesses in the SME space ever since. In that time, our own business has grown substantially, as we have increased our customer base, while retaining many of these as long-term clients and partners.
The acquisition of the Birmingham-based MSP marks our first move outside of London, as we seek to expand our UK coverage.
This acquisition, completed in 2019, gave us broader access to the London market.
In 2018, Fifosys achieved the highest level of certification offered under the Cyber Essentials scheme.
Then, in 2015, we became the first managed service provider in the EMEA region to become a Datto Elite partner, and this has allowed us to leverage Datto's products for IT strategy.
We achieved our ISO 27001 accreditation in 2013 and have maintained it since, highlighting our on-going dedication to data security and compliance.
As a managed service provider, we often work with businesses to help implement new ideas. In 2012, we implemented our first Office 365 solution and deployment of this product line is now a major part of the IT support we offer.
The third-generation dual-site platform then launched in 2011.
Then, to grow the company, we acquired Octavia IT. This created one of the largest IT Outsourcing businesses servicing the SME market in London.
We followed this up in 2009 with our second-generation cloud platform.
From the very start, we recognised that adopting the latest technology has the potential to help businesses to succeed and achieve strategic objectives. As evidence of our foresight, in 2007, we opened our first-generation cloud platform and this occurred prior to 'the cloud' becoming recognised as a mainstream concept.
Fifosys has been providing IT support and IT strategy services for businesses in London and the south east of England ever since.
