thevirtualpmo works with many small businesses, but one relationship that has stood the test of time is the collaboration with Hive Communications. Hive provides stellar business IT support to SMEs, and their partnered business blue bee is a website and digital marketing agency.
It all began in 1984 when Christoph Kuhle, founder of Hive Communications, was working with Subash, our founder, on a placement year of his Civil Engineering degree in Kenya and a personal friendship was formed. They remained in touch over the years and when Subash was launching thevirtualpmo, he looked to Christoph, his trusted friend, who had set up Hive Communications in 2004 after an 18-year career as a British Army Officer. Hive specialises in IT support and cloud managed services with special expertise in cybersecurity.
Hive was the obvious choice to be our most trusted Managed Service Provider (MSP) for thevirtualpmo, due to the personal knowledge of the founder, his business’ moral compass, extensive experience and knowledge. It just so happened that Salisbury-based Hive Communications is partnered with website and digital marketing agency blue bee, who were able to build thevirtualpmo website, oversee the ongoing site maintenance and provide support with marketing.
Hive Communication work hard to provide all their customers with a truly exceptional service. They provided thevirtualpmo with Microsoft 365 setup and global admin management to make sure they launched in a strong position. Day to day, they offer remote monitoring and management (RMM) with desktop support and strategic advice, thanks to taking the time to gain in-depth knowledge of thevirtualpmo and how we operate as a company.
In these times, cyber security is becoming increasingly critical. Hive specialises in endpoint protection comprising of anti-virus, anti-malware and anti-ransomware whilst also offering business continuity and disaster recover (BCDR). Their mission statement is to exist to solve problems and avoid disasters – they also assume full accountability so their customers can sleep easy at night knowing their business is protected and safe.
The three businesses continue to work closely together, with Hive Communications and blue bee attending thevirtualpmo’s most recent networking event. You can find more out about the businesses at www.hivecommunications.co.uk and www.bluebee.co.uk
