A Bit About Tegen
The Celtic name Tegen means 'The Fixer' – the one who understands quickly, who shoulders responsibility, the one who fixes the problem. It also means 'Precious'. For us, that's about nurturing relationships and protecting your data with arms of steel.
So many companies find their business time is being wasted fixing IT problems. We'll take care of that, leaving you free to concentrate on the thing you're good at – growing your business.
We will help you break the chains that are holding your business back. Whether it's wraparound IT services, management outsourcing, a specific project or a total network overhaul, we'll give you the freedom to reach your business goals.
Protection. Freedom. Excellence. Trust. Tegen.
When founder and managing director, Richard Smith, turned to his Cornish heritage to find a meaningful name for the company, 'Tegen' perfectly described his vision. This ancient Celtic/Cornish name means – 'Precious' – both something cherished and something highly prized.
Later, we discovered a second meaning: to fix – to see, to understand and to resolve. What better name to sum up our approach to our work?
We treasure the importance of relationships, we acknowledge the uniqueness of every client and we make it our duty to find optimum IT solutions and protect the valuable data and components at the heart of your business. IT may be a new industry, but the values that Tegen has been built on are as old as the hills. And just as precious.

When Richard started the company in 2002, he could see there was a gap in the market. At the time, other IT companies were offering very rigid solutions – a 'one size fits all' approach.
Richard knew there was more to IT than this. He wanted to offer flexibility and choice. He wanted to listen to the different needs of companies and craft thoughtful solutions. He envisioned a business that supported individualism, freedom, and independence.
Over a decade later, we have been able to grow whilst still staying true to our roots. Widely recognised for our cutting-edge expertise, we help the UK's top businesses expand and thrive, whilst maintaining a reputation for trust, nurturing long-term relationships and seeing every client as unique.

Most people wouldn't think of Information Technology as a craft. But our approach to creating carefully thought-out IT solutions mirrors that of the carpenter, choosing the right tools for the job, prizing accuracy and skill to achieve perfect results. We don't believe in quick fixes. We believe in details, precision and conscientiousness. We listen, we look and we learn from you, before crafting an IT design that fits perfectly, with no rough edges.
Freedom to grow. Freedom from obstacles. Freedom to achieve your goals, without old computers and clunky systems getting in the way. Freedom from worrying about the safety of your data. We believe in unblocking pathways and unlocking potential. We want to help you break the chains that are holding your business back. We frequently hear the same story, that too much time and energy is being spent firefighting IT problems. We can take care of that, leaving you free to concentrate on the thing you're good at – growing your business.
Peace of mind. It's what we all want. We can't magic up the elixir of life but we can wrap arms of steel around your IT. We see it as our duty to protect you, whether it's through our double back-up system, security systems, data confidentiality, or complete disaster recovery. There are enough things to worry about – your data and IT security shouldn't be among them.
You know where you are and where you want to be. We have the map to get you there. We will be alongside you, navigating the way through. We don't believe in taking over the wheel. We promise we're not back-seat drivers. You set the course and we will listen, plan, and get you there, offering as much or as little support along the way as you need.
We build things to last – IT solutions and our relationships. For us, that means treating people as we'd like to be treated, investing time and thought in each individual, practicing active listening, building trust and understanding, and being excellent communicators.
Don't we do things much better as a team? Collaboration means working together towards shared goals. For us, this is learning from you, sharing what we know with you, and tapping into the support and expertise of our partners (Link to partners) to help us do what we do, even better.
"Tegen has been supplying an outstanding service for Barrington James since 2010. We were growing and looking for a provider to cater for all our IT management and support, so that we didn't have to. On top of this Tegen constantly delivers on our IT projects, including a successful physical office move and a migration over to a virtualised server network. Thank you, Tegen."
