About Recarta IT
Recarta IT was established in 2005 as an end-user subsidiary of Powercore Holdings. In March 2008 the company was subject to a management buy-out, and is now owned and managed by Daren Bland, Managing Director and Toby Harris, Sales Director.
The company has grown organically year on year since conception and a large part of our growth has been attributed to our partnership with select ISV’s, to help deliver infrastructure or hosting to their clients. This has been a catalyst in the large growth we have seen in our managed services and professional services businesses over the past few years. We have seen a great shift towards outsourcing of skills and resources to Recarta helping to grow our Services Business by 300% in the past 12 months alone (to December 2014).
To date Recarta has over 200 regular clients ranging across the UK Mainland and the Channel Islands largely covering Banking and Finance, Retail, Distribution and Manufacturing sectors.
