In a challenging economic climate, systems integrator and reseller Krome Technologies announces growth of 23% in their second year of trading.
Founded in November 2009, Krome Technologies have continued to build on their strengths; achieving £7.9million Turnover in their second year of independent trading, an increase of 23% year on year. This exceptional year was sealed with a record month of business processed throughout October.
2011 has been a successful year for Krome across the board; with the relocation to new, larger premises at the start of the year, providing 14,000sq foot of office space and warehousing facilities, with scope to develop an onsite customer technology demonstration centre. A number of new employees have also been recruited, extending Krome’s technical, sales and back office departments, with an increase from 30 to 40 employees this year.
Throughout 2011, Krome has succeeded in maintaining their existing client relationships while also securing a number of new clients and project wins, by providing clients with competitive pricing, combined with high service levels, and comprehensive technical expertise.
Krome’s Managing Director, Rupert Mills comments “Krome are committed to providing clients with the highest possible quality of service; in a struggling economic market, organisations are having to be vigilant when investing in new technology and engaging supply partners, our financial growth confirms that we are meeting client demands, and achieving service level expectations.”
As an organisation Krome have historically been known to work closely with leading Vendors such as Dell, HP, VMware and Citrix. Throughout 2011 Krome have formed new reseller partnerships with emerging vendors such as Xsigo Systems, Tintri and Veeam, further complementing their established portfolio of solutions expertise.
In addition to its Vendor relationships, Krome has also recognised the need to build a good reputation with channel distribution partners; by ensuring that senior financial communication lines are open, and that payment terms are adhered to, which has resulted in the financial support that is required from the channel in order to sustain growth.
Keith Payne, Senior Credit Analyst at Westcoast comments ‘Westcoast is proud to have supported Krome from day one. The level of close communication and professionalism has provided us with the confidence to increase credit facilities when required and accordingly this has contributed towards Krome’s successful growth.’
As 2011 closes on a high, focus has already changed to further expansion and continued growth for 2012. “As a relatively young organisation, in a tough market, we seemed to give ourselves fairly ambitious targets, but as we continue to achieve and exceed our goals, we are positive that 2012 will be another exciting year for Krome,” concludes Mills.
