The company, led by founder and managing director Craig Neil, has established itself as a niche provider of Avaya equipment, particularly in the burgeoning unified communications/IP telephony space, but also deals in systems from Verint, Alcatel-Lucent and Enterasys. It recently added Sun Microsystems and Polycom kit to its toolbox.
In a statement issued this morning, NSC said it had doubled staff numbers from 75 in 2005 to 151 this year and invested in new enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management systems, as well as the ITIL framework to manage its growth.
Over the same period, NSC said its annual revenues increased from $28.8 million to $51 million. Neil said companies were continuing to look for selective outsourcing options, but NSC was also picking up a substantial amount of project work.
