Using Tech to Transform Business

“At SVGC we deliver transformation and digital design services to enable effective and efficient business process and decision making. Originally founded to provide support to the Ministry of Defence and associated industry, SVGC now has over 25 years’ experience offering expertise.

“Our unique team of business, security and digital experts provide high-quality, rapid and cost-effective solutions to enable the public sector to make evidence-based decisions. As a result, our services are now increasingly in demand from Government departments, commercial organisations and the nuclear sector.

“In 2021 we launched SVGC Digital, our digital solutions and data science centre of excellence to bring innovative technologies and data enabled decision-making to the public sector. Utilising our continually expanding base of digital expertise, we are able to provide novel approaches and state of the art technologies including artificial intelligence, machine learning and bespoke solution development.

“SVGC operates across the UK but Wiltshire has been our home for over 20 years, so it feels great to be recognised in these regional awards. As a small business, we are delighted to have this opportunity to shine a light on the amazing things that go on in the South West. 

“We take such pride in our work because our business was founded by former military staff focussed on supporting the public sector to make great decisions, and we have continued to do that since the company was formed in 1997. The end result means benefits such as saving money for the public sector, improving public services and increasing public safety.

“It would be great for the team to be recognised for the amazing work they do and the hours they put in. An award would be the icing on the cake – recognition that our regional peers understand and recognise the impact of our work.”Andrew Dixon, Managing Director
