Advania UK Reviews

Write a Review

We’ve been impressed with the results of our system update. Everything is combined in one system, which means less chance of human error and the ability to record our customers’ specifications. Our efficiency has vastly improved. We’re working smarter, not harder. Hopefully the system will allow us to head for further growth and innovation going forward, and to maintain our edge and high level of quality customer service.

Brian Nesbitt, Director

The choice of products was twofold. Firstly, other companies in OSL Group Holdings used Dynamics NAV systems (one using 2009 and another using 2013 R2), so familiarity and ability to confer with colleagues about the system played a part. Azzure IT’s [now called Advania] work ethic and knowledge of Dynamics NAV lead us to hold (them) in high regard.

James Williams, Commercial Administrator
CQR Fire and Security

With our turnover and growth on a steady rise, we needed a system that could keep up with the bespoke manufacturing work we do. We were using an outdated programme that wasn’t allowing us to work to the best of our ability.

The nature of the industry is cut-throat and we don’t have a lot of time allocated for each job. We realised our current system simply wouldn’t allow us to keep growing our business effectively. We were impressed by both the Microsoft Dynamics NAV system proposed and Azzure IT’s [now called Advania] understanding of our business and their enthusiasm and support.

Stella Collinson, Managing Director
Foremost Furniture

Upgrading to Dynamics NAV 2016 has enabled us to be more productive with our people resources. Our production manager has reported that he has gained a day back a week, by the intensity of the old system being removed.

Azzure IT’s [now called Advania] approach was comprehensive and extremely professional. They demonstrated a rich insight to manufacturing process and practice. We delivered a 30-user Dynamics NAV project in record time and minimal disruption to users - due largely to the simplification and adaption of NAV to suit our needs. As a result, we now are able to monitor stock levels in real time, integrate bill of materials from our CAD software, generate reports using JET and use CRM to manage customers contacts effectively - with the collective effect of saving our operations team at least one day a week.

John Geelhoed

Azzure IT [now called Advania] has proved an excellent choice for our project. Not only has the team been highly supportive and in constant contact, they have also invested the time in getting to know our business really well. This has meant they have been able to positively challenge us on what we required and make recommendations regards business process improvements.

Graham Rackstraw, Operations Director
Surface Technology

I spoke with my IT manager at IT Lab [now called Advania] three times a day in the run up to the migration. It went smoothly and we experienced no downtime at all, which was quite surprising. The cloud solution provides real value for money.

Jackie Hemming, Office Manager
Talis Capital

As a company with a very high reliance on IT we needed ‘big company’ style IT support without the need to trouble ourselves with an in-house IT department. We rate IT Lab’s [now called Advania] service highly. They understand our requirement for speedy resolutions to any and all IT problems and projects.

Graham Cooper, Managing Director
Oil Brokerage

IT Lab [now called Advania] have worked closely with us to put a roadmap in place which fits our technical and budgetary requirements. Their collaborative approach has been second to none. IT Lab provide proactive, effective IT support with a proficient account management team overseeing everything. The private cloud solution has provided a stable working environment for our head office and call centre users creating efficiencies and helping workflow.

Adam Powell, Co-founder

When we needed IT information to feed into the sales process it was provided with simplicity and reliability by IT Lab [now called Advania]. Tower Transit has become accustomed to receiving a very high level of service from us during the transition. The challenge now is to maintain this as we support their daily operations, something we will achieve with our commitment to Service Obsession.

Greg Balkin, Transition Manager
Tower Transit

The support and continuity has been second to none with a seamless transfer each time. I was told we were going to move. Then I was told we had moved and everything had gone well. I didn’t actually notice a thing!

Andy Othen, IT specialist
Vision Underwriting

We have worked with IT Lab [now called Advania] for many years - they are efficient, friendly and capable.

Kirsty Tikerpae

The biggest thing IT Lab [now called Advania] has done for us recently is to reduce our server estate using virtualization. This has allowed us to improve energy efficiency while also increasing system performance. For a company that actively advocates environmentally sustainable design and building that is huge.

Simon Banyard, IT Manager
Pollard Thomas Edwards

Concluding a comprehensive selection process for an IT partner to manage our Azure and Office 365 cloud infrastructure, we chose IT Lab [now called Advania] who stood above the crowd. They proved we made the right decision, demonstrating strong capabilities managing our entire IT service portfolio and showing themselves to be a trusted, business focused partner. They engage with us at every level - from their personable, capable engineers to their dynamic CEO.

Lawrence Withy, CRM Project & IT Services Manager
Association of British Insurers

We chose IT Lab [now called Advania] because we wanted a technology partner who would not only meet our needs operationally, but would help us build a long-term strategic vision to take our IT systems forward. Through close collaboration, they demonstrated a deep understanding of our organisation, our culture and our aspirations.

Ali Jaffri, IT Projects and Operations Manager

From the very early stages of discussions, it was clear that the IT Lab [now called Advania] team were incredibly professional, knowledgeable and switched on. They took the time to really understand our operational challenges before proposing a solution, and this gave us a huge amount of confidence in their ability to deliver.

We have a highly mobile team, and this mobility is central to our service delivery model. We identified the need for a flexible, scalable and highly-available communications platform and IT Lab delivered in every area. We’re delighted with the results.

Chris Latta, ICT & CCIS Manager
Inspira Cumbria Limited

IT Lab [now called Advania] understands that for a technology company like McLaren that has thousands of employees engaged on mission-critical operations, where time and agility are essential wherever people are in the world, the delivery of IT support for the business has to be seamless and efficient.

Craig Charlton, CIO
McLaren Technology Group

IT Lab's [now called Advania] knowledge and professionalism were evident from the beginning. They understood our challenges and aspirations before we’d even articulated them in some cases! Their experience in our sector is clear, and their deep understanding of Dynamics has been invaluable across every stage of our journey. IT Lab places its clients’ success front and centre and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

David Holiday
AFC Bournemouth

Their experience and skillset are immense. For any business in sport reviewing their technology, I’d certainly encourage a conversation with IT Lab [now called Advania] at an early stage.

Jim Karran, Financial Controller
English Football League

IT Lab [now called Advania] has provided us with a future-proof, scalable IT platform that we have complete control over, without the need to rely on a third party to carry out support-related change requests.

Mike Mason, Finance Director
Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce

While Pegasus Opera II had served us well, we had organically outgrown the system. Having worked with IT Lab [now called Advania] for so many years, we had complete confidence in its ability to identify Microsoft Dynamics as the right software for us to support our company as it continues on its rapid growth trajectory.

Daniel Turner, Managing Director
William Turner & Son

IT Lab [now called Advania] not only helped us complete the transition [system transfer] on time, on budget and without downtime, but they proved to be a flexible, dependable partner that was able to support us fully throughout the process and deliver a successful business outcome.

Tony Romero, CEO
Cygnet Health Care

Working with IT Lab [now called Advania] enabled us to re-evaluate what we do and why we do it. The perspective of their strategy team helped us to see things differently, and their expertise in Microsoft Azure gave us the confidence to embrace cloud computing.

Asif Naidu, Technology and Integration Director
Mattioli Woods

When my department needed extra capacity and reassurance that they could call on someone for help, IT Lab [now called Advania] responded quickly, flexibly and efficiently to fill the gap. With their help, we continued to deliver a consistent and unimpaired service to our users and tenants.

Brendan Doherty, IT Manager
Weaver Vale Housing Trust

Not only has IT Lab [now called Advania] met our expectations around dependability, accountability and performance, but their strategic input and in-depth knowledge of our needs and ways of working has also given us the confidence to move to a cloud-based environment. Consequently, we’re enjoying measurable financial and performance benefits.

Graeme Murray, Financial Director
Dunedin LLP

IT Lab’s team [now Advania] was candid, responsive, and quickly built our trust. Having chosen them as our Microsoft Dynamics GP provider, we recognised they had the expertise to support us in other vital areas. We extended the GP contract to include deployment to IT Lab’s cloud environment, Cloudlab, plus MPLS connectivity and managed services.

Geoff Bishop, Head of IT
KeolisAmey Metrolink

One of the reasons for choosing IT Lab [now called Advania] is that we wanted a partner who could help make the reimplementation of our core ERP system as painless as possible. The IT Lab team spent a lot of time upfront developing a deep understanding of our business needs and worked closely with us and our partners throughout to ensure that the implementation went smoothly and that our employees felt comfortable with the system.

Karen Leay, Deputy MD (Thomson & Capper Ltd)
DCC Healthcare

IT Lab [now called Advania] has supported us in innovating our services - including bringing the Tech Bar directly to our users here at the McLaren Technology Centre - and helping us develop our service management platform.

Sam Price, IT Director
McLaren Technology Centre

When I’m looking to select a technology partner it’s got to be exactly that – a partnership. I want to work with somebody who not only provides me with advice and recommendations but also gets the business. [Advania] understands the strategy that we’re looking to deliver and the way in which technology play such an important part to underpin the business.

Stuart Pepper, CIO
Phaidon International

We chose IT Lab [now called Advania] for its combination of strategic focus, capability, ability to challenge our business and help drive our strategy over the coming years. With IT Lab’s support, we have begun to transition our technology environment to one that is an enabler of growth and progress. This will require us to change our approach, thinking, structure and processes as well. None of its competitors had this capability in-house and it is a fundamental point of difference – and altogether pretty exciting.

James Kowszun, COO
Bibendum PLB Group

IT Lab [now called Advania] continues to be a valued partner to Farmcare, delivering an exceptional support service that helps us to remain the leading agricultural business in the UK. We look forward to embracing new technologies that will further set us apart from the competition in the future.

Amie Harris, Head of Business Change

Our ‘best prepared’ strategy demands the best infrastructure. At short-notice, IT Lab stepped up to the plate and gave us everything our team needed in time for the Games. Like us, they aim to exceed expectations, and I’m genuinely excited by what we’ve achieved together and what the future holds for the partnership as we look forward to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.

Karl Reynolds, Commercial Director
British Paralympic Association (BPA)

We engaged with IT Lab [now called Advania] to get our strategy together, to pool our technology and how we would scale. Those big decisions in terms of our direction are what IT Lab really helped us with. It was their breadth of expertise that stood out - from a technical audit, to technical implementation, to support and mentorship.

Phil Thomas, Digital and Technology Director

IT Lab [now called Advania] has created a dynamic operating framework for contemporary businesses. Their Adaptive Technology Model (ATM) equipped us with everything we aspired to, including armour-plated security. In our heavily regulated industry, compliance is non-negotiable, Under the bonnet, ATM is sophisticated, with many moving parts and Microsoft 365 at its core. Its elegance lies in its deployment to our users – it’s easy for them to consume.

Pablo Alvarez, IT Director

Advania’s consultant Raghbir joined as an extension of the InfoSec
team at a time when we were under-resourced and needed an experienced
security consultant.
Raghbir picked up The AA’s security policies and standards quickly and was
invaluable during this period; his broad and deep knowledge of security was
evident. It was the right person and the right time, and the result has been
the successful launch of the MVP app with lile engagement needed from
the core information security team.

Imran Knight, Senior Information Security Consultant
The AA Ltd

At Ei Group, we launched our updated IT strategy in 2018 with a view to becoming cloud-first in our approach. The vision we set was ‘we want our colleagues to work anywhere, any time and on any device with up-to-date and relevant content’. We have not looked back since. User adoption has been fantastic and everyone has been hugely complimentary of the new hardware, systems and services now available to them.

Leigh Milton, Head of IT Systems and Development
Ei Group

We really appreciate the effort put in by the delivery team to own and resolve the challenges of the programme. The collaboration between the team, Impellam and Microsoft’s FastTrack Team also proved integral to the successful outcome.
