About Bytes Software Services Limited

Bytes is a Microsoft solutions reseller, which effectively means that most of their business is providing corporate and public sector clients with software agreements and related solutions. In the way that we may buy a licence for software, these organisations buy a multi user agreement and it is their job to recommend the best one for them.

Founded nearly 40 years ago, Bytes started as a shop selling printers and computers. The owner of the business soon found that what they were good at was software. They grew and developed their proposition to meet the demands of the markets and soon were purchased by a larger group who provided additional support and funding for the organisation to continue as a larger UK business.

A new managing director took over and has helped shape their new solutions ever since with the continued input from team members and vendors. As a team, Bytes are proud of what they have achieved and they know that it is all down to the most important element of the business, their people.

Diversity and honesty has helped Bytes to grow consistently and provide a high level of customer service and satisfaction.

As their people are the most important element of the organisation, each year there are incentive programmes and awards for employees. Throughout the year an employee of the month is chosen through votes by management and other team members if they put them forward. This person wins an award to reflect their continued efforts.
