• CCS Media reports strong year ending

        • CCS Media has announced its performance for the year ending 2018 with strong results of £229 Million.

          CCS Media has always celebrated the reality that the biggest asset are its people, now totalling 500 each of whom have a mobile notebook devise so they can work remotely, from home or in one the reseller's 18 offices nationwide.

          CCS has reported:

          • Revenue growth of £49 million, representing a 27 per cent year on year increase. 
          • Customer base exceeded 12,000 and a 28 per cent increase in customer spend.
          • CCS Media achieved the security management standard ISO 27001 and recertified for ISO19001 and ISO140001 standards.
          • Active expansion of workspace and operations including the opening of a third Technology Sales Academy
          • Enterprise technology business grew by 80 per cent and services enjoyed a growth of 40 per cent, as did Workspace that continued to be the largest product group for the reseller.
          • AV and Collaboration services achieved a 50 per cent year on year growth.
          • Largest investment ever in systems and notebook devices enabling employees to work completely agile.

          James Hardy CCS Media's Deputy MD said, “although we have experienced significant growth, we still only serve a fraction of our addressable market, so we still have plenty to go at to achieve our potential. We have made significant leaps in the way we are enabling our people to be successful, making investments in to workspace technology and the systems that support agile working. Beyond this, we delivered more learning hours, enabled more people to become certified and achieve business relevant qualifications than any other year in the history of the company. Our systems and processes are evolving continuously to increase efficiencies and underpin our collective growth.

          “If anything, this investment has allowed us to stay true to our primary goals and commitment to family first values and work life balance beyond the pursuit of performance at any cost. Our team members can very much choose the working style to suit themselves and our customers. Work isn’t a place, it’s just what we do. This together with our continuous organisational development aims to simply make it easier for our people to support our customers and succeed within their role at CCS.  We will continually evolve as we maintain a learn-it-all approach to business; we’re very much about practice-based approaches and revision, it’s just applying common sense really.

          “We’ve still got a long way to go and a lot of maturing as a now mid-sized business. We recognise the fantastic achievements our people are making and make sure we stop to say thank you, although we do get a little scared of congratulating ourselves too much. I think we fear complacency, I know I do but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. That said, we rewarded over 100 employees from across the entire business with trips to Barcelona, Milan, Rome and Singapore for the fantastic work they do each day within the business and with our customers. We even closed the business for a day in the summer to give the entire organisation a day and evening at Alton Towers. Then went a step further after a great year to give everyone Christmas Eve off, all on the company. It’s important to give recognition and thanks to our people who very much make the place; the only way the organisation will be successful is if we enable our people to be successful collectively.”
