1950 Digital Revolution
A shift in the economy from industrialised production to information and computerisation began. Huge mobile phones were just the start.
The seed that was to become the need for managed service providers was planted.
Gavin Russell is the founder of Wavex and leads the company by example. As the CEO, Gavin’s background in development has enabled him to carry the business forward and continue to engage in embracing new technology. Having previously been responsible for providing infrastructure services, and with ambition and drive, it was a natural progression to launch Wavex. The company has since become one of the leading IT solutions and business strategy providers. Wavex maintains its success by channeling its focus on creating exceptional IT solutions with excellent client relationships. It is important to Wavex that solutions and services work in alliance with one another, providing the very best services to assist companies in developing their operations.
The ethos of the company has always been the same – to deliver innovative, IT solutions enabling its customers to Experience Excellence. Gavin always knew that to run a successful IT company it was important to offer enterprise quality services to the market that were both reliable and cutting edge. ‘’Starting the business from nothing was a mixture of excitement and fear – the focus was on quality, it was always to deliver excellent service. For me, at the beginning and especially before I needed to pay hundreds of salaries, I valued a client’s praise much more than their pounds’’ - Gavin Russell
By the year 2000 the customer revolution had been established and it was time to look at what else Wavex could offer, in addition to reliable managed IT solutions. With a reputation for thinking ahead and developing new ideas it was an obvious move to continue to create innovative design and build services. Creations such as NETi, MonX, Life-Signs, CMS & Client Extranet came to fruition. Wavex was growing from strength to strength and in 2002 the company welcomed industry recognition as the awards began to flood in. As the company continued to grow, Wavex needed to find bigger premises to accommodate a fast expanding workforce, and relocated in 2014 to the heart of the city in the prestigious Kingsfield House. Substantial investments were made to the Wavex platform and to this day it continues on a positive and exciting trajectory.
Having established a renowned market presence as an IT solutions service provider, Wavex could see that there was also a need for quality, encompassing services which could look at business strategy in alliance with their technologies – hence Apex was created. The Apex platform is an exciting new facility which enables businesses to monitor the relationship between who is using the technology and how it is being utilised. By looking at the operational performance of company employees, the information that the Apex app provides, enables management to make improvements to business services and run operations more efficiently. This innovative app has opened the floodgates for companies to be able to improve productivity throughout an organisation, with a simple, cost effective system.
No one knows what the future holds, but Gavin and the team at Wavex forecast an exciting tomorrow. With an eye for opportunity and a passion for development, each and every member of the Wavex team is on board to offer innovative, client focused solutions that are a cut above the rest.
