Our technology partners represent the very best technology available to, and suitable for, our market. Like most IT consultancies, we partner with many providers and work hard to keep them on their toes.
However, there are a select number of accreditations which set us apart from the crowd. Partnerships that require dedication, investment and a real passion for what we do. There are very, very few IT consultancies in our marketplace, when combined with our 100% LegalIT focus and expertise, that are able to match these:
Registration Number: 197095
In May 2013, Sprout achieved the internationally recognised ISO27001 security management and information standard, demonstrating our commitment to the highest quality in delivery of services and security procedures for our legal customers. ISO27001 is the internationally-recognised standard for Information Security Management Systems. It showcases our commitment to the prevention of theft, loss, damage or misuse of any sensitive information we hold or have access to. ISO27001 requires an annual inspection and renewal process.
Microsoft GOLD Partner
Midmarket Solution Provider – Partner ID: 1512051
