Woking Works has partnered with recognised and influential companies from the borough to make Woking a thriving and prosperous business hub.
“The friendship between Arcom IT and Woking Works began when we implemented the Woking Digital WiFi programme on behalf of Woking Borough Council, ensuring that visitors and residents alike can get online for free across the town centre. We’ve been around for nearly 20 years, and as such we are experts in designing and setting up IT systems, that can help ease the burden of work. We can provide services to manage an entire IT infrastructure, from servers and desktops to applications, data and networks. We also host data for a range of companies across the Borough, including those making use of our Export House Business Incubator, a convenient, networked local office space, run in conjunction with Woking Works. For us, this partnership offered an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to the town of Woking, and gave us a way to show our appreciation for the council’s ‘can do’ attitude and forward thinking policies.”
