For over 10 years, Seven-Winds has operated as an honest and open IT company that works closely with its loyal clientele. We greatly value the relationship we have with our customers, and we work proactively on IT issues within organizations. Our core values are to always be accommodating, maintain short lines of communication and being realistic, all at an affordable and competitive price.
The perfect IT service
It all started in 1998, when the four founders met each other. We worked at the same employer, and all of us had an image in our mind of what the perfect ICT service provider should be like. It took us until 2001 before we dared to take the plunge.
In that year, we started a new company, based on our own ideals. One of those ideals was that each founder would provide a different wind in our sails, a specific expertise, and that we would be able to operate on all seven continents. Hence the name, Seven-Winds.
The idea was to make enterprise knowledge available to small businesses, to basically see all small businesses as one big enterprise. Our focus group has therefore always been the SME, small- and medium-sized enterprises.
We started with an office in Lunteren. Initially, our office was just a small room, but pretty soon we moved the company to a larger area of the building, which included our own server room.
From the outset, Seven-Winds focused completely on Microsoft, and in the second year we became an official Microsoft partner. In 2005, we grew to 8 employees and moved the company to a new office in Hoevelaken.
As the years went by, Seven-Winds steadily gathered more experience and expertise, and we started participating in Microsoft’s Technology Adaption Programs (TAPs). In 2005, we participated in the TAP System Center Essentials (SCE), the SME version of SCOM. Seven-Winds received such positive feedback that Microsoft sent a team from America to discuss the entire program with us. Based on our feedback, Microsoft postponed the release of SCOM to make the necessary adjustments. Seven-Winds was thus able to provide a significant positive contribution to the current version of SCOM.
Today, we have almost 20 employees, and we still take our development in the area of knowledge, expertise and exceptionally skilled personnel as serious as we did back in 2001. We are pioneers, we aim high, and we keep trying to challenge ourselves, so that we can continue offering our customers the best possible service.
