Tim Thomas-Peter and Scott Bamford, who between them have clocked up 40 years experience in the world of information technology, have left a bigger company to bring their expertise and cutting edge approach to the entire business community.
Mr Thomas-Peter, the Managing Director of Ambidect and its nine-strong team explained: “The role of software and IT infrastructure is fundamental to any business these days but most business people haven’t got the time to learn the technical intricacies of the systems they use and rely on. They may not know where to start when it comes to improving or replacing them.
“That’s why our role is to make sure every piece of software in your business works effectively and efficiently for you. And if you are not sure about any aspect of your system just ask us, because we’re here to ensure you remain in control of your business at all times,” he added, speaking from the company’s HQ at Congleton’s Riverside Business Centre.
Mr Bamford, Ambidect’s Technical Director added: “Keeping up-to-date with new technology is a full time job, so business owners need to be able to rely on someone or an organisation with a level of expertise that enables them to offer valuable and effective advice.
“That’s where our team comes in. We give business owners the confidence to get on with what they do best while we ensure their software is doing exactly what is right for the business.”
Following a New Year launch, Ambidect is already looking after the software systems of a number of companies including Nottingham City Transport and Congleton’s Toucan Telemarketing. Additional client wins could lead to the company further increasing its staff of highly trained software engineers.
For Mr Thomas-Peter, Ambidect is an opportunity to use the newly acquired business management skills he absorbed as one of the handful of North West entrepreneurs to take part in the 10,000 Small Business UK initiative launched by investment banking giant Goldman Sachs.
“There is no doubt that some of those skills will come in handy,” said Mr Thomas-Peter who lives in Congleton. “But the main task at hand is locating those clients who will appreciate the unique level of technical and commercial know-how that we offer.”
Asked the origin of the name Ambidect, Mr Thomas-Peter explained: “It’s a take on ambidextrous, the ability to use both left and right hands. Here at Ambidect we use both left and right sides of the brain for the benefit of clients.”
