2011 - 2014
Race Computer Services was founded as an IT infrastructure consultancy by a team of technical architects. The core focus was helping customers with virtualisation, end user computing and application delivery challenges. They identified a gap in the consultancy market, where traditional players were focused on vendor sales targets and incentives rather than customer requirements.
Shortly after the company was founded, Race Computer Services was awarded Microsoft Gold Partnership, in acknowledgement of strong technical capability in Microsoft technology.
Over the next three years, the firm grew quickly, building a reputation of technical excellence. Race Computer Services moved into their first office in Metropolitan Wharf, Wapping in early 2012.
2015 - 2016
As a result of customer demand, Race Computer Services expanded into IT Managed Services providing bespoke infrastructure and network support to an expanding mid-market customer base. The team built upon its consultancy capabilities to expand into tailored managed services.
During 2015, Race Computer Services made significant investments in operational tools and processes to ensure it could scale to meet customer demand. This included alignment to the ITIL service management framework.
Race Computer Services expanded IT Managed Services to include full Service Desk capability in 2016, as well as being awarded places on key government frameworks.
