Cirro has an eco-system of specialist providers who we engage with based on your requirements. This delivers the most effective outcomes. We work with partners who share a similar philosophy with a customer-centric approach, delivering consistent, high-quality solutions.
This gives the ability to provide an extensive professional services portfolio. From strategic planning, contact centre strategy, WiFi and network audits, to VDI architecture, application delivery and performance monitoring
Strategic ICT consultancy – sets to understand your business, people, culture and strategic objectives. This is then mapped against an audit which can cover critical areas such as:
Audit, Survey & Gap Analysis – Audit planning, design and implementation which can include Remote sites or multi-site audits which look to deliver consistent metrics covering a gap analysis to understand the ‘as is’ environment compared against the ‘to be’. This can be high-level, very detailed or elements of both based on initial analysis. The audits look to cover the important areas around performance, utilisation and compliance. This can include detailed onsite technical audits looking at Wi-Fi and network performance and cyber security, application performance management and WAN/LAN performance.
Once the data gathering has been completed the next step is to validate and process the data to give meaningful insight in order to clearly gaps, risk and priorities.
Business Case Planning & prioritisation – looks to take audit output and prioritise based on risk and strategic objectives to produce business plans for specific initiatives and projects that will have the greatest impact on cost, performance, productivity, compliance or risk.
Infrastructure Design – designing specifically for a highly optimised (cost, quality, performance) Cloud delivery to your users, be they internal or external. We cover all critical elements from connectivity and domain integration, application and database design, security policies and access controls to business continuity and disaster recovery. Our design process ensures a consistent user experience of services whilst offering the highest degree of flexibility, ensuring certainty and choice whilst maximising uptime and reducing risk. Naturally, this is fully documented and delivered to your compliance standards and your business continuity and security needs
SoW – we produce a detailed Statement of Works to ensure everyone is fully aware of expectations, deliverables, dependencies and timescales. This is critical in reducing grey areas, project risks and ensuring a successful outcome.
Implement, test & Optimise – we build the environment to your performance and resilience criteria and according to your security requirements. You get to fully test the solution against a pre-agreed test plan. If it doesn’t pass the UAT, you aren’t locked into a contract with us and are free to walk away. During testing we also look at areas we can improve, this could be reducing bottlenecks o improving application or database elements to achieve greater throughput.
Alerting, monitoring and performance management – ensures we set, monitor and amend system alerts and to get the right balance of preventative monitoring with actionable information.
Patch management – allows us to provide system patching to the operating system or security elements of environments in a way that works for you.
Remove legacy & secure disposal – we can remove, securely erase, shred and recycle (or re-sell) your legacy hardware and cabling to ISO 14001, we can provide certification of secure erasure. We have zero to landfill policy.

Cirro has been one of our trusted technology partners for many years and runs our entire Cloud Platform on our behalf. For us, Cirro solves the challenge around how we deliver true SaaS delivery in the right way.
Key elements of our ICT infrastructure had reached end of life, we considered a replacement programme but that would have been timely and costly and we didn't want to find ourselves in a similar situation in the future. We had faith in Cirro and the Cloud9 solution and decided to migrate everything over to them. We've noted a major service improvement, smooth migration and very few ICT challenges.
We were awarded a contract to run the membership and events service for HOSPA and needed to be operational as quickly as possible. Cirro took time to understand our requirements and delivered the solution we needed, which has continued to evolve as we have. We have been with Cirro since 2014 and would highly recommend them. The few support calls we make are quickly resolved, pricing is competitive and clear and they are extremely knowledgeable in their field.
As a key supplier of core ICT services to the bank, it is extremely important we have a relationship built on trust, consistent high performance and compliance. This is exactly what we got, we’ve been very happy with how they work, they are flexible, open and accommodating of our changing business needs.
Our industry and our business is going through a huge amount of transformation. Moving away from traditional IT to an agile Cloud9 platform is a major milestone in our transformation process.
