History

Annodata’s history begins back in 1988, when brothers Andrew and Tim Harman founded the company following successful sports and business careers. Today, we have evolved into one of Europe’s largest independent vendors of IT, Unified Communications and Managed Print technologies, with a turnover of over £80 million. For close to three decades our customers have benefitted from our proven ability to offer the widest choice and the best advice in an ever-changing market place.

Our success can be attributed to the pragmatic approach we take on the solutions and services we offer, our dedicated staff and our dynamic leadership team. These three key factors ensure that we continue to see solid organic growth and enable us to maintain our market leading position.

By listening to customer and market demands for rationalisation and consolidation of IT services, Annodata have developed an end-to-end Managed Services approach which ensure our customers receive optimal cost reduction and return on investment, whilst providing significant productivity and service improvements.
