Starting life in 2001 as an HP house, today this ‘UK leader in IT procurement and business solutions' works with 14 strategic vendors including HP, HPE, NetApp, Lenovo, Vodafone, 8x8 and Cisco. A 12 per cent pro-rated revenue dip in its year to 30 June 2020 "originated from the pandemic", the Southampton-based outfit said, although lower overheads helped it boost net profits from £504,000 to £736,000. Recent acquisition E-Plenish contributed £2.6m over an 18-month period.
Although the pandemic hit Vohkus' revenues in the final quarter of its fiscal 2020 (and it claimed £177,000 through the furlough scheme), it said lockdown enabled it to "deploy new technology and services within its clients". Its homepage currently pushes remote/hybrid working solutions from Microsoft, Cisco and Poly.
