Founded in 1990, Plan-Net was built on the foundation of IT Services supply to the Financial and Legal industries. Initially supplying project teams to the likes of Midland Bank (now HSBC), the company quickly expanded into the Infrastructure Consulting arena and then Service Management. As a natural progression the company then progressed into the fully Managed Service market and quickly became well known in the Legal and Finance industries as a service provider willing and able to build cost effective and bespoke models for managed component elements of IT.
In recent years, Plan-Net has developed a portfolio of Support and Consultancy services and now proudly manages entire IT functions as well as component parts for many Legal, Financial and Professional Services businesses.
