IT Consultancy and Projects

Shackleton Technologies is an established, professional managed IT service provider with many years’ experience in advising and guiding our clients through the technology minefield.

Technology can be a key differentiator in a competitive market place and most businesses recognise that fact. It is a fast changing and constantly developing arena. Trying to keep current is a difficult and onerous task, requiring extensive budgets and time commitments, which most businesses simply don’t have.

Businesses who ignore this and simply continue doing what they’ve always done, can’t expect the results be any different and as a result, they tend to remain static, while their competitors out perform them.

Shackleton, is your local IT expert. We live and breathe technology. We are always up to speed with the latest developments in hardware and software. We’re at the cutting edge of new, modern methodologies. It’s what we do. It’s what we love.

Our expertise and vast experience, ensures you gain the most from your IT investment, helping you get ahead and stay ahead of your competitors.

If you’re an IT Manager, possessing advanced technical skills but your busy schedule prevents you from researching new technology solutions, Shackleton can help.

If you’re a business with no technical skills in house, Shackleton can help.

We understand technology better than most but what sets us apart is the fact that we also understand business. More importantly, we understand how IT budgets are particularly hard-earned and that they must deliver value.  

Shackleton will ensure you get the biggest bang for your buck, the best possible return on your investment.
