Information Technology

Software Development
Our IT Department includes an internal team of developers who manages in-house written systems in accordance with the demands of our Customers (the Group’s subsidiaries) and their Customers.

Recent software developments that the team has managed include a bespoke system which takes a customer order and manages its entire life cycle and the legacy system which was built using a foundation of Visual FoxPro and covers all aspects of the business from procurement, manufacturing, stock control, despatch, EDI and accounts.

The developers are currently working on .NET in order that we can overhaul our entire system and take advantage of cutting edge technologies including the Internet of Things to deploy business intelligence and feature rich solutions. This will help keep the Group ahead of its competitors and will supply Employees and Customers with meaningful data to assist key business decisions.


Managed Services

The SLG Technology IT team has dedicated staff to assist in the diagnosis of all hardware issues and repair any system deployed or alternatively be at the front line when a third party is required. We have partnered with BT and Cisco to deploy our VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) communications solution across the group and with our BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy, our users can have their personal devices supported however still have strict controls on how they interact with our network.


As part of the Group’s plan to reduce our carbon footprint and hardware power usage, we adopted Virtualisation.

Using VMWare, we have successfully virtualised all of our primary server across the Group’s subsidiaries. We are now looking to deploy the same technology for all desktops which will allow our end users to access their desktop anywhere in the world giving them a truly flexible solution.

Using Cisco equipment and technology, we have networked the whole Group using public and private VPNs to make sure that all of our users can access their data at any time in any place. The IT Department is also responsible for the secure backup of the Group’s data, the security of our network infrastructure and deployed devices.
