Scope is a pharmaceutical company best known for its range of innovative eyecare products like OPTASE, HYLO and HYCOSAN. Their products are sold all over the world and supported by a team of over 130 staff across the UK, Ireland and the USA.
We were approached by founders Tom and John Freyne back in 2011 – initially just to repair a laptop – but it was quite clear this was a client that was going places. Scope would need more from their IT if their ambitions were to be realised and we are pleased to say they were – a real success story that we’re proud to be part of.
The company was growing fast, and the old IT system couldn’t keep up. With offices in London and Dublin there were problems with sharing files and applications like Sage and the company just couldn’t get on with Google Workspace (or Google Apps as it was back then).
As our business has grown, I’ve been able to trust Wessex IT to support our team and keep our systems relevant. I’m free to concentrate on my business and not day-to-day IT which has been an important factor in our growth.
