MSPMentor – the ‘ultimate guide to managed services’ – has voted Custard Technical Services of Nottingham the 35th-best Managed Service Provider (MSP) in their 2012 ‘Top 50’ across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  

Director Chris Pass said:

“We’re thrilled by this recognition. It’s a terrific achievement, especially considering that we’re one of the smallest companies to achieve a ‘Top 50’ ranking. It’s nice to know that our company commitment to customer service and innovation is appreciated. And it certainly does make all the long hours everyone here puts in worthwhile.”

Business-to-business managed service provider Custard is now the 2nd-highest ranked MSP in the Midlands and North, which says a great deal about the quality of service they offer. Chris believes that onsite response times of 1 hour, along with first-rate out-of-hours client support, gives them a real competitive edge.

And the name? When the business was started back in 1996, brands like Apple and Orange were beginning to stand out in the dry, ‘techie’ business of IT. Although considered at the time, neither Mustard nor Gravy quite had the same appeal! And, in all honesty, ‘Gravy’ could never excite the graphic designers as much as zesty Custard from a marketing perspective…
