About Us and Our Approach

So who are GKS Consultants?

Read on to learn more about us.

Situated in the spectacular Sussex countryside between Brighton and Gatwick Airport, GKS Consultants have the opportunity to visit clients in the South East and London. The City Of London is less than an hour away, as is London Victoria and London Bridge.

Don’t be put off by our location. By using the latest online collaboration tools, the distance between our office and yours is not a problem. We can assist you regardless of your site.

The company – G.K.S. Computers Ltd – was founded in August 1997 and we have been quietly going about our business since then.

Our business’s registered office is:
Burdocks Farm,
One O’clock Lane,
Burgess Hill,
West Sussex,
RH15 0EX

We are a Limited company registered in England and Wales.
Our Registered number: 3416766.

Since forming over 23 years ago, we have seen many changes in the world of IT, with companies coming and going; but we are still here! So you know that you are in safe hands.

Here is a small sample of some of the work that we have been involved in over the years:

  • Provided IT technical design, procurement and implementation services for an award-winning and ever-expanding South London estate agency.
  • Provided an outsourced IT Managed Services Support Desk to NHS Primary care facilities in the South of England.
  • Provided project management, technical network architecture design and implementation services to the South of England NHS for multiple new builds and facility expansions.
  • IT Technical Programme Management for various hospital and medical facilities within London. These included green-field builds and the expansion of existing medical services.
  • IT technical design, implementation and co-location hosting services for a series of internet start-ups that required specialist services that most ISPs could not accommodate within their standardised environments. One of these concept start-ups went on to be a major online betting site!
  • We have been heavily involved in web hosting delivery solutions for either Linux or Windows-based platforms, with the focus on system performance, solution optimisation and system security.

2020 & COVID-19

COVID-19 brought home to many businesses that an expensive, centralised office where everyone has to travel to and from is not as important as it once was.

While some office-based companies were starting to let people work remotely a day or two a week, COVID-19 forced to change overnight.Who could have guessed of this significant shift with working practices at the start of 2020?

So with the right collaboration tools and IT equipment, a business team can be across the world, delivering the tasks assigned to them effectively. We are used to working with organisations from places such as Poland, India, the Czech Republic, the USA and South Africa.

So before you think that we are not close enough to be able to help you, let’s talk and see what’s possible?

How We Approach Each Engagement

We take a different approach to most companies when engaging with you. As an individual you are unique, every business is unique, and every project is unique. So why do many companies run projects in a cookie-cutter manner and fail to get the results they wanted?

We want to know everything about you and your business.

  • What is your business’s vision?
  • Where you want to go next?
  • How do you envisage your next project helping you with your business’s journey?
  • Who are your stakeholders, and what are their priorities for the business?

Our experience has shown that knowing  the above is the key to securing a successful project outcome. So understanding the deliverables from every angle, is how we start each engagement.

Our Values

  • Operate with integrity and transparency

  • Be passionate about our work

  • Being open and honest in our relationships with great communication

  • Embrace and drive change, but not for the sake of change

  • Be adventurous, creative, and open-minded at all times
