David Rankine appointed IT Services Manager (West) at Workflo Solutions

Posted: 3rd March 2020

Livingston, West Lothian – Tuesday 3rd March 2020; Workflo Solutions, the fast-expanding outsourced managed services company, has added to its team as it gears up for further expansion of its core services across the UK. It has appointed Cloud migration specialist, David Rankine (33) as IT Services Manager (West)  as it sets sights on becoming one of the UK’s most progressive and fully integrated IT and managed services providers.

Covering a territory patch across Scotland and the north of England, David joins Workflo Solutions from a Glasgow-based Cloud and telecoms company, where he led the IT support team and as he explains, the shift from hardware infrastructure to Cloud-based migration is a critical path for many of Workflo Solutions’ clients and as IT Services Manager, this will give him a chance to identify ways of helping them streamline operational efficiencies to create a more ‘leaner’ working environment.

He comments; “My role as IT Services Manager will be to help clients migrate away from traditional onsite hardware-driven systems to Cloud agile solutions concentrating on smaller environments, so helps promote remote working, real-time back up and hosting all company data in one specific environment.

Workflo Solutions’ vision mirrors my own ambitions in ensuring we move clients away from the ‘old school’ capex model of huge ‘upfront’ IT infrastructure costs to a far more manageable and cost effective monthly operational expense. It’s leaner, more efficient and the way all businesses should now be modelling.”

Michael Field, managing director, Workflo Solutions commented; “Today’s business landscape is dominated by advancing technology and many businesses find their own IT resources can struggle to stay current with the latest systems and trends.

Legacy systems are now being replaced by migration to Cloud agile-based solutions, so as we embark on growing our IT Services and helping businesses maintain a competitive edge, it is reassuring for new and existing clients to know that we are investing in top talent which helps keep our business energised with the very best very talent. David will be an invaluable addition to our team.”

Workflo Solutions is moving forward on several fronts. Significant highlights in the past year included the opening of a new facility in Aberdeen and also near Oldham in Greater Manchester. It also acquired  two businesses, Livingston-based IT Services company Pyramid IT and TRM, the Paisley-based document and record management storage specialist.
