about us
TRUSTED PREMIER SERVICE

Why choose CSq?

The difference between a typical Managed Service Provider (MSP) and CSq is how the issue of technology is approached. An MSP is more of a supportive position, managing existing systems, whereas a CSq takes a more strategic approach, leading the technology strategy.

Our unique selling point is that the owners and directors have worked in the financial sector for the past 20+ years and have had the privilege of sitting at both sides of the table.

OUR CORE VALUES

Our TSP
Approach.

Transparency

Our success is underpinned by our transparency, authenticity and accountability.

Simplicity

We’ll spare you the technical jargon and deliver solutions that are easy to understand.

Professionalism

Our honest and professional approach drives our client satisfaction.
