Local IT firm announces six-fold increase in monthly business

Bruce Skinner (Alto CEO)

A LEADING Aberdeen-based IT firm ended 2023 by recording a six-fold increase in its monthly project work.

With revenues in this area up from £8,000 a month to more than £50,000 a month, Aberdeen-based Alto is now on track to grow its 13-strong team by another three business support and technical personnel in the coming year.

The increase has been brought about by a sharp upturn in cloud-related projects; the provision of Microsoft 365 solutions and supporting clients to seek alternatives as incumbent products reach their end of life and companies seek to reinvest in IT infrastructure.

Cybersecurity continues to account for more than a third of the company’s overall revenues and this is expected to rise further throughout 2024.

Founded in 2009 and solely owned by CEO Bruce Skinner, Alto is a Managed Services and Security Provider (MSSP) with a team based in the North East of Scotland.  The company draws on many decades of in-house experience to deliver products and services of the highest calibre to a growing client base across manufacturing, food, energy services, healthcare and other sectors.  With teams ranging from 20 to over 100, clients are located throughout the UK and in overseas locations including Spain, France, Denmark, Canada, the USA and the Philippines.

Commenting on Alto’s continuing upward growth trajectory, CEO Bruce Skinner said: “The accelerated uptake of technology during the pandemic has allowed geography to be put to one side and it’s no longer a discriminatory factor when customers are looking at product and service provision.

“When it comes to IT, being local is not a primary concern nowadays and remote services are now the favoured method of support for most customers.  These factors have allowed us to grow exponentially in 2023 and we are excited at the possibilities which next year holds for the Alto team.”
