Partners & Friends

Since Lucidica started, we have been getting to know other businesses and making friends in London. We are certain we couldn't have got to where we are without a little help from these friends.

Our Service Partners:

intY

Lucidica’s partnership with intY started back in November 2016. After talking to their friendly business development executives we quickly changed our Microsoft services over to them. This allowed us to get better Office 365 prices for our clients but also a whole new portal that means we can track and upgrade our client’s licenses in a click of a button. Since starting with intY, they have massively expanded to become one of the biggest Microsoft resellers in the country. They have also awarded us their Expert Partner of the Year and provided us with some top-class training so our engineers can know the products inside and out.

IntY are not only a global cloud distributor, they are the CRN Cloud Distributor of the Year 2017 Winner. They offer a huge range of cloud services from companies such as Microsoft, Symantec and Acronis. Founded in 1997, they have created an award winning portal to manage services and also a multi-tiered software to really allow your business to become scalable with managed services.

Accelerator

We’ve been involved with Accelerator since we started and our CTO has been involved with them since they began. They are based in the heart of Shoreditch and have provided us with a community where we can help other businesses expand with us.
Accelerator is a specialist business incubator in Shoreditch, the heart of London’s startup community. Maybe the very best place to be when starting a business in London. Accelerator provides exceptional support and a valuable network for start-ups and SMEs in London. They specialize in working with high growth technology startups, both consumer and B2B.

Attached to London Metropolitan University, they also offer a range of programmes to help graduates start businesses. These include Launchpad, an intensive 12-week programme which encourage budding entrepreneurs to focus on truly understanding their customers’ needs and getting to ‘product/market fit’. At the end of the programme the graduates pitch to panel of established entrepreneurs and the winners receives free office space and mentorship, allowing them to follow their dream full time. Accelerator also run an active events programme and have modern event and meeting space for hire.

British Library IP Centre

Not only have Lucidica worked for and presented seminars for the British Library for years, we are now a Corporate Partner of the British Library Business & IP Centre. This corporate partnership means we get to meet everyone from one-man-bands to successful start-ups years into their journey, all with great ideas and amazing ambitions.

The British Library is one of the largest libraries in the world. In March 2006 it launched the Business & IP Centre (BIPC) to open up even greater access to its £5 million pounds worth of up to the minute market intelligence, consumer data, and international trends analysis to help new businesses plan their launch, and to support existing SMEs to grow. Specialists in business information and intellectual property (IP) are always at hand to help new users find the killer statistic or gap in the market at the enquiry desk, and in workshops. Since the launch, over 700,000 entrepreneurs have used the Centre, with nine out of ten still trading after Year 3. Their alumni includes among many others, the founders of Ella’s Kitchen baby food, Tangle Teezer hairbrushes and the MOBO Awards.

Microsoft

Microsoft are a crucial part of most people’s businesses and we are extremely proud to have been a Microsoft Gold partner for many years. Being a partner of Microsoft allows Lucidica access to additional expert training, software and products so our Engineers work and learn faster and better. This provides a greater overall solution and service to our clients. A closer relationship with the world’s leading operating system and office productivity software provider allows us to access leading-edge technology well before it is released to market, so we can understand the benefits for our clients sooner. In short, our partnership has meant we can learn know the Microsoft products inside out and tell you if and how they can help your business.

Dropbox

Lucidica have been working with Dropbox for years and are now one of the prestigious partners of Dropbox. Like Microsoft, this means we get access to expert training, learn about new products before they come out and really get to understand the value of Dropbox from the people that have developed it!

Helena and the team at Dropbox help SMBs grow their business faster by offering a powerful cloud-based collaboration platform. With 1 in 2 UK internet users now using Dropbox, their mission is to simplify the way they work together. It’s not about telling people and organisations how to work, but rather providing frameworks and tools that work the best way, for their situation, their goals and objectives. Dropbox Business allows teams to collaborate, to do those amazing things – to create, co-ordinate, and deliver.

Agility is key in growing your business faster, and with the right tools – and the right aptitude – small businesses can really gain an edge on more established, but less nimble, enterprise size organisations.

Google

We have very recently become a Google Apps reseller meaning that we can cater for you Google lovers out there! Being a Google Apps reseller has meant we can buy, manage and upgrade your suite for you, making the whole experience hassle free.

GSuite/ Google Apps is the combination of Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive and Calendar. It makes connecting your company that little bit easier. The user interface is very different to Office 365 and provides a great service to a different type of customer. It works across platforms, meaning you can access your data anywhere in the world on tablet, laptop or phone.
