I help make I.T. happen - infrastructure, finance systems, CRM and software development.


My IT consulting service focuses on technology that can deliver true business benefits rather than 'technology for technology's' sake !

While it is true that technology is moving on at a faster and faster pace with increasing areas of specialism the depth of experience and knowledge I have has benefited many businesses. With true enthusiasm for what I do I will always strive for success and to build strong working relationships with my clients.



Steve Barrett Consulting is perhaps a slightly different type of consulting service in that I strongly believe you have to do 'hands on' to understand.

Now of course one individual cannot do everything in an IT field that is now so diverse compared to 30 years ago.  However many basic principles still stand and I am confident that if there is any aspect I am not sure about I will say so or find someone else who can assist.



There are often major, very fundamental decisions to be made relating to IT business systems. For example do we run 'in the cloud' or 'on premise' or a combination ?  What about mobile solutions,web services  and so on.  All of these could have a big impact on whether or not your business achieves sustained growth.

I begin by helping clients choose where to focus in order to get the most effective boost to their business. I aim to find the quickest route to success.


“I have employed the services of Steve Barrett for the last 12 years. Whilst our business has grown 4 fold, Steve has always managed to provide an excellent level of support and service,which has enabled us to grow and improve our IT infrastructure without the need for dedicated on site IT employees. Needless to say I highly recommend.”
