Networking matters – A chain reaction

Posted on: 26/01/2021

Winning business through referral of existing or previous clients, or through your network of business connections (LinkedIn or networking groups) is in our opinion simply the best way according to Dorset based software company Chittak.

One of their recent projects for Connections, happened in exactly that way.  Starting out with a networking event and expo in 2011 our MD Trevor, made an important connection. This brought about a project to design, (and then further extend), a custom system for W8Data and, who in turn referred us to The Production Hub, where we were engaged in a challenging project to involving 17+ framework releases to Laravel 7.x. The current link in this chain, a project recently undertaken for Connections

Connections appointed Chittak as its specialist software development support partner due to Chittak expert knowledge in complex operational systems in December 2020.

Connections is a company that specialises in the targeted distribution customer offers into consumer homes using eCommerce retailer packages.

Chittak will help Connections deliver a legacy mission critical migration project to bring a core system up to date. This comes as Connections continue their ongoing growth internationally.

Peter Clark, Head of Print Solutions at Connections, said:

We have partnered with Chittak because of their in-depth technical knowledge and pragmatic analysis. Transparency and agility are key to our business success, and Chittak reflected these qualities. We are seeing immediate benefits from engaging with Chittak and we have high expectations for the future.

Trevor Clarke, Managing Director at Chittak commented

We’re thrilled to be working with Connections to help them maintain and develop their critical system into the future. They’re a leading player in the market and exactly the type of growth-minded business we love working with.

I’m a firm believer in making networking connections in business, it works for me and my business Chittak Ltd, and it works for others too. Winning business through #referral is a powerful thing. To know your business is trusted by others, to know you’ve got business advocates prepared to put you forward, is truly rewarding.”
