Case Study A|2|O Technology Group

Accent Shape


A|2|O Technology Group provide technologies for operational efficiency, and the reduction of harmful emissions, such as CO2. They do this with advanced material component manufacturing processes and in-service structural monitoring technology.

They are a fast-growing business who has been identified as an LCR Tech Climber 2021, a finalist at the NAA Design Innovation Awards, and a high growth business. The founder has also been a finalist in the Halton Chamber Entrepreneur of the Year and Business of the Year awards.

A|2|O needed help in two areas. Firstly, creating a secure and mobile IT infrastructure to facilitate the fast-paced and agile nature of their business. Secondly, they wanted a single supplier solution with a trusted partner who would help and advise them as they grow at pace. They wanted the simplicity and cost effectiveness of dealing with a single supplier and to avoid the pitfalls of dealing with multiple vendors.

A|2|O and Connectus both have a base at Sci-Tech Daresbury in the North West. Sci-Tech Daresbury is a Science and Digital Campus that is internationally recognised for world-class science, innovation and enterprise.

We work closely with A|2|O in a trusted partnership, where we contribute to the overall IT strategy as well as providing bespoke, scalable, cost-effective solutions with full IT support.

In the innovation sector, protecting Intellectual Property is critical so the IT security delivered by Connectus provides peace of mind and mitigates the risk of data loss.

A|2|O now has a simplified core structure that allows us to work efficiently and to scale quickly. We have a base to build on and can easily add in bespoke elements to support our innovative solutions.
