The West Bromwich-based firm, which boasts Microsoft Gold, HP Gold and VMWare Enterprise certifications, recently won the three-year contract with Pizza Hut, which had previously been fulfilled by Computacenter’s Digica arm.
It has also recently bagged multi-million-pound contracts with the National Police Information Agency and two Bedfordshire councils, competing for both against players such as Computacenter and SCC.
Max Smith, co-founder of SysMicro, said the firm has doubled turnover every year since inception and plans to do the same again this year. It is also looking to double headcount as it pursues even more contracts in the coming months, he said.
“The Pizza Hut tender was very long and very tough, but in the end it was confident that we knew its technology,” he added. “Our competitors fought tooth and nail for the contract as well, so it wasn’t easy.”
Part of the contract was to seamlessly migrate Pizza Hut’s growing online ordering business to the new infrastructure.
Fawad Shah, network and infrastructure manager for Yum Restaurants International UK (Pizza Hut’s parent company), said: “Our online business takes about £250,000 every weekend and is set to become a £1m-a-week business in the next few months, so it is a vital part of our business.
“SysMicro understood Pizza Hut’s online infrastructure and its offering overall was a very good fit for what the company needed. It came up against so me very big names in the tender process, but it deservedly won the deal.”
