Our Story

Passionate about helping businesses work smarter, better and faster.

Established in 2002, Ignite Technology was founded on a passion for bringing the very best people, experience and innovation together to help businesses work smarter, better and faster. In fact, we pride ourselves for always excelling in doing the right thing, so we’re the best in our market.

Today, we’re a founding member of the Tricise Group and a major supplier of IT software, consultancy and delivery services to businesses of all sectors, across the UK, Europe and Middle East and Africa.

As a Tier 1 Broadcom Partner we specialise in providing, implementing and supporting project & portfolio management, business automation, mainframe and cybersecurity solutions.

Our vision is for every single business to benefit from the latest digital innovation; helping them to work smarter, better and faster.

Our mission is to deliver tangible business value for each and every one of our clients and to be the best value-added distributor we can be for our partners, providing them with the best technology that’s the right fit for their needs and supporting them at every turn.

Our Values

Keeping our promises. That means delivering what we say; never over-promising or under-delivering.

Building long-lasting relationships. Working together to understand your technology needs, and always adapting to meet changing demands. Best tools + best practices = great outcomes.

Becoming your trusted advisor. If we don’t think a certain technology solution is right for your business, we’ll say so; we promise to always provide the best possible advice we can, to ensure your solution is as simple and as scalable as possible.
