Job Title- Head of Marketing Length of Service- 8 months

I deal with all marketing here at CSCM, so I work closely with Jude and the Sales Team to let you all know about any new products or events. I really enjoy the variety working here brings and there is always something new to get stuck into, plus the opportunity to get a little creative, when getting the CSCM and newBusiness Hivebrand out there.

Customer News

A-MIR and Co are one of our longstanding customers and have been working with CSCM for over 20 years. The company was established 25 years ago and their offices are based in Oldbury, where they also have a large onsite showroom. They supply quality garden furniture to large retail chains including supermarkets and department stores.

We are pleased that A-Mir are now in the process of moving their business to the cloud. They will be using Hosted Desktop and Hosted Exchange, the benefits of which are endless. Using Hosted Desktop means their business can operate from virtually anywhere, giving them access to their applications without being tied to on-premise hardware. They will also benefit from the peace of mind that all their data resides securely in a UK based datacentre.
