After thorough review we felt that the right way to address this was to join a larger organisation who had the range of additional skills our clients needed and of course the same approach to providing an exceptional experience when delivering service.

During the 17 years I have been running Mirus I have kept a close track of other technology providers and IT Lab are a provider I have always respected and paid close attention. I’m incredibly pleased and excited to be joining such an amazing organisation who share a very similar culture to our own.
