How our IT auditing service works
You don’t need to invest in expensive IT auditing software or devote your employee’s man-hours to creating your own internal IT audit. We’ll do that for you.
UK business is changing the way it operates due to the likes of Brexit, COVID and more remote working. An IT audit will give you a clearer understanding of where you are now and how ready you are for the future. Perhaps you’ve had a recent company merger or a change in your IT support function? Perhaps IT equipment bought for a finished project is no longer required or could be repurposed? Are you considering moving to a cloud computing solution? Perhaps it’s time to review your cybersecurity for weaknesses or vulnerabilities? Are all your software patches and anti-virus protection up-to-date across the business? Is your network optimised for best performance? Only a full review of your infrastructure and a comprehensive IT audit can tell you these things.
We’ll sit down with your existing IT support team and business stakeholders to find out what you want to achieve.
What are your goals and objectives for the future, and what will you need to make that happen? We believe the better we understand your business, your plans and your requirements, the more effective an IT audit we can deliver.
Once we have your goals in mind, we’ll conduct a thorough physical IT audit of all your systems, hardware, software, networks and full IT infrastructure. We can compare this against what you want to achieve and against current industry best practices to ensure you’re ready to do business the way you want to for the future.
We provide a thorough and itemised IT report, both written and in a formal presentation.
Taking findings from your IT audit we also recommend improvements and changes to achieve your business objectives and to highlight anything that may not be working to peak efficiency or may be out-of-date or obsolete. Here we can also recommend improvements to your IT infrastructure and to your internal systems, saving you time, money and resources.
We’ll present a collated set of action points to help you be ready for your businesses future, and be there if you need help.
Your IT Audit Questions answered
Common questions we get asked about our business IT reviews.
IT audits come in many shapes and sizes, depending on a businesses goals, but primarily they are a detailed review of software, hardware, knowledge, legal compliance, and infrastructure across all the IT systems of a company.
IT auditing is vitally important for businesses of all sizes who want to protect their data and systems from external threats and who wish to make business and operational changes in the future.
Businesses grow, change, and evolve. They develop new products or need to adopt new ways of working. Sometimes a company’s IT systems get left behind.
Perhaps your company is moving to new premises? Perhaps the business has been forced to close their IT department in favour of remote IT support? Maybe you have inherited the IT assets of another company during a merger? Maybe your method of working needs to change in the current ‘new normal’? Perhaps you ned to review a specific element of your IT readiness, like cybersecurity, to fulfil the requirements of a new contract?

As an IT consultancy with many years in the business, we’ve learnt to be flexible.
There’s a lot we can do remotely with analytical software and by speaking directly to your IT team, but sometimes we will need visit your premises to review specific equipment or anything that’s not connected to your network, and to physically check out best practices on-site.
