As a local Gibraltar Supplier, we are aware that the benefits to you – the client organisation – in choosing a local supplier/installer for your works are enormous.
Obviously there is a price consideration – using a local team based in Gibraltar will reduce travel and delivery costs substantially – reducing the overall project cost to you.
However, even more beneficial in our eyes, is the non-budgetary benefits gained. Using the Local Contractor can assist your business far into the future…
For example – In-depth knowledge of your infrastructure would be held locally by the Contractor Team if they built the infrastructure for you. We are often called to Data Centre’s or Offices which need to be upgraded or have changes made to them and the new IT Team are unsure of the backbone infrastructural links or of historical technical details or cable routes that were put in place, often many years ago. But, because we built the networks – we have the answers and can assist the company in swiftly moving forward with the changes required.
Another issue which cannot be ignored is also the reputation of the Contractor. If you are using a local Contractor, local references can (and should) be checked, Testimonials can be verified and previous installations can be viewed. Any good Contractor will happily provide these. With regard to Data Centres in particular – Insurance policies can also (and should also) be verified.
It is our view that independent local businesses in Gibraltar are often very specialist in their fields and can certainly offer excellent product knowledge/have excellent knowledge of the distribution chain involved in getting materials to Gibraltar in time, and can offer support to the growth and future sustainability of your organisation.
