A NEW IT company has launched in Oxfordshire to combine cutting-edge technology and excellent customer service, with one innovation designed to tackle school bullying.

XTECH is a cloud solutions and services provider created to introduce the latest global IT innovations to Oxfordshire organisations.

Founded during lockdown by Steve Thompson, XTECH’s bold approach is already attracting attention throughout the IT sector. Mr Thompson, of Banbury, is an experienced sales leader with more than 20 years in senior IT sales roles.

Most recently he spent 12 years as founder and sales director at Oxfordshire IT company LAN3, where he was instrumental in driving the company’s growth and success, generating over £50m in sales revenue over the period.

He said: “The technology world is changing, and the way organisations are buying, and consuming IT is changing. I have set up XTECH to directly address this trend."

Mr Thompson added: “It means we can provide a compelling and market-leading product to Oxfordshire schools that will make a huge difference to student welfare.

“This is what we thrive on, discovering and offering new IT products that will transform how schools and businesses work.”
