Who we are and what we do

Business Systems is the UK’s largest and most well-established Independent Enterprise Communications Solutions Provider covering Monitor & Compliance, Workforce Engagement Management and Cloud Communications. We have built a strong reputation for delivering complex projects to our global clients and have an impressive client list including The Bank of England, HSBC, and Shell.  We’ve been established for over 30 years and have offices in West London and the City of London.

As well as delivering & maintaining best in class capabilities from Enterprise vendors we also develop our own Products that help our clients on their digital transformation journey from on-premise to cloud platforms.  Our technical capabilities are complimented with strong client relationships which uniquely positions us to provide our clients with the best fit solution for their business.

Business Systems is large enough to have a strong reputation in Financial Services, Contact Centres and the Public Sector but is small enough that you will interact with senior managers and the leadership team daily as well as having the opportunity to make a big impact.

We believe our core values makes us what we are

People First – we know the importance of our people; People development, opportunity, motivation, and inclusivity are all critical pillars in our approach to People.

Expertise – we know our stuff and we bring a history of deep technical knowledge and combine it with an understanding of our client’s needs.

Collaboration – we work together internally and with clients. It’s the project (and how we run it), not the product that makes the difference.

Tenacity – we don’t give up no matter how difficult it becomes; we deliver on our promises.

Agility – we continually adapt, and we accept and build on change.
