IT is a discipline which underpins nearly every type of business in some form or another. Although the majority of people who start out in business have a skill, passion or talent for something, rarely is it for technology itself. With this mind, Bellingham IT focuses its service to the SME end of the market, typically with 10-250 users (although we have supported clients beyond either end of this scale).
Although we never originally set out to support any specific industry sectors in particular, it is clear, over the years, that we have built up quite a knowledge base and expertise within some.
Today over 80% of our client base will come from one of the following sectors…
- Professional Services
- Education Services
- Property and Estate Agents
- B2B Services
IT for Manufacturing
The most successful manufacturing companies have long since embraced technology and integrated IT as a fundamental cornerstone in their business. Because manufacturers understand better than most the importance of operational efficiency and the direct impact inefficiencies can have on the bottom line of the business, they apply this logic to the role IT plays operationally in other areas of the business.
Bellingham IT has serviced a number of manufacturing clients across Yorkshire including The Proton group Ltd, PolyGlobal, Brilliant Stages and Sampson Products. To read what we have done for some of our manufacturing clients in more detail, please browse our case studies here.
IT for Professional Services
Professional Services clients have always formed an important backbone to Bellingham IT’s customer base. Some of the characteristics shared by many professional services firms is the need for document collaboration across multiple office sites, secure cloud-based software and responsive IT support to ensure information is accessible and retrievable at all times. Data security has always been of pivotal importance to professional services, mainly due to the sensitive nature of much of their work. With the added regulations surrounding GDPR, data privacy and security / cyber security has become a business-critical element.

IT for Education Services
Education has undertaken somewhat of a transformation over the last 20 years and technology has played a pivotal role in how children are educated within school, and how schools operate on a daily basis. In line with this trend for digital transformation, more and more companies who supply services to the education sector are becoming more and more reliant on IT and supporting services.
Bellingham It has serviced a number of education services clients across Yorkshire including Cornerstones Education, Interactive Immersive Classroom, and M2R Ltd.
IT for Property and Estate Agents
Another industry which has been significantly impacted by technology is the Property and Estate Agency sector. Long gone are the days when house-buyers eagerly awaited the Thursday night supplement in the local newspaper for new listed properties or relying on trawling through the high street looking as shop window displays. Today multiple properties are listed every minute of every day online, with notifications pinging off to interested buyers, and the reliance on IT, cloud systems, collaboration tools and data back-ups has become a business critical operation.
Bellingham IT has serviced a number of property clients across Yorkshire including Hodson Estate Agents, Production Park, Cooper & Cutt Estate Agents, South Parade Business Centre and Coxan Smith Ltd.

IT for B2B services
As the internet and the cloud has become more commonplace with tradition business operations such as selling, quoting, ordering and logistics, so has the integration of IT within B2B services. The use of technology and systems has enabled smaller operations to service a much wider range of clients and it has become critical to ensure that IT systems are operational and running efficiently every hour of every day as we move ever closer to 24/7 service delivery.
Bellingham It has serviced a number of B2B services clients across Yorkshire including Lincoln Cleaning Technology, Complete Fire Solutions, Red Media, Peleta Ltd and Re:Work Leeds.
