Our Approach

Our Approach - Six steps to building your system.

Step One - We analyse your business

Arkom work in partnership with our clients rather than simply doing things to their business. Through a series of meetings, we understand your business goals and in the systems you use to achieve them. Arkom prioritise any processes that are critical to your success and match them with the right technology to get you there.

Why Microsoft?

Why Microsoft? Would you let an unknown, one-man band take the reigns of your business? Neither would we.

That's why we don't use open source software. Arkom use Microsoft quite simply because it's the right platform for commercial businesses - it's stable, secure and future proof. Here's why Microsoft are the best choice for your business:


Microsoft is the world's biggest software company and have more money to invest on developing their products.


All Microsoft products are designed to be compatible with each other even after one part of a system is updated, so all systems work together well.

That's why our foundations are built on reliable systems, where peoples' lives depend on their performance. His biggest Arkom achievement has been steering the business through three recessions while keeping pace with the ever-changing technological land
