About Simply IT

Simply IT is a well-established Northampton IT support, services and solutions business with customers in the East Midlands and beyond.

It was founded in 2011 by David Barreau, a highly experienced network engineer with decades of experience in local government IT. His original mission was to offer IT managed services to schools, to help them run school IT systems that were becoming complex, costly, and hard to support. The Simply IT name was created to frame that service.

Over the next few years, he recognised that businesses were experiencing similar challenges, and gradually expanded the Simply IT customer base to include local businesses.

The team has grown steadily for the past decade and includes CFO Tammy Barreau and several other family members in addition to a team of qualified technicians and experienced engineers.

Steffan Barreau, David’s son and another talented technical mind, joined a few years later to oversee the company’s expansion further into the business IT support and services market.

Today Simply IT has a broad range of IT offers for SME and medium sized businesses in the East Midlands as well as schools nationwide. These offers span IT support, IT solutions and IT managed services along with some education-specific technology solutions.

The company has grown steadily after moving into dedicated premises in early 2017.
