Press Release: Winchester Business Expands for the Digital Future

Alniro, IQ Cloud and printing.com Winchester are now part of Profound Works Ltd

For over 10 years the successful creative agency, Alniro has been serving a wide range of clients from its base in Winchester, and for customers with printing requirements it has operated printing.com Winchester serving hundreds of customers.

Building on this success, the business has recently merged with long established IT system integrator and Microsoft Gold Partner, IQ Cloud.

With so many capabilities all under one roof the business has now re-branded as a single entity called Profound Works Limited (profound). profound will retain the printing.com Winchester brand but is now able to offer a much expanded range of services to all clients.

These include:

  • Design and build of websites and e-commerce sites
  • Modernising established websites to be mobile and tablet friendly
  • Design and build of mobile Apps (for iOS, Android and Windows Phone)
  • Creative design for print and digital
  • Cloud services with Microsoft Azure
  • IT system integration and custom applications
  • Implementing world class digital customer experience with the Sitecore® Experience Platform™

Tim McMillen, Director at profound comments:

Every client we deal with wants to present themselves well, attract new business and nurture existing relationships. We are perfectly placed to help them in that regard. Many companies struggle trying to co-ordinate a strategic consistency from multiple suppliers across their marketing, IT, website and design needs. profound removes this pain by making life easier for clients to deal with a single, very experienced supplier.

Tim added:

This is a very exciting time. We know clients have unique needs across their digital, website user experience, print, mobile and IT needs, and profound is helping them achieve great results. We now have strategic relationships with Microsoft as a Gold Partner for cloud services and with Sitecore, the global leader in website personalisation. Beyond this, the Microsoft Azure cloud platform allows us to lower cost for the IT department of any business by reducing the need to manage on-premise servers, applications and databases. Clients can now choose to move some or all of their IT estate to the most comprehensive and secure cloud option out there.

The business has grown significantly and continues to hire talented staff. The Board was recently strengthened by Matt Quinn and John Pearson, both of whom have extensive business leadership and technology experience in the areas of business intelligence, cloud services and business software.

profound will continue to serve its valued client base that includes established brands such as Majestic Wine, B&Q, Hitachi Capital, Micheldever Tyres and Javelin Group, as well as a growing base of new business mid-size customers.
