WW Computer Systems was founded in 1983 by Neil & Simone Lester.
The business, a Word Processing Bureau (called Word Workshop), started from a small shop in Edgware, NW London.
The business took hand-written client letters and simply typed them up and printed them out to make them look more “professional!”.
Neil Lester was a pioneer in technology and had one of the first desktop computers in the UK.
Our first client requiring IT Support walked through the door in 1990…”I cant open Word Perfect, can you please help”.
From there the business grew in to supplying and supporting desktop computers. This was at the same time the likes of Amstrad, Tulip and Compaq launched their PC range. Computers were sold with MS Dos 6.22!
In 2001 Marc Lester graduated from University and joined the Family Business.
At this time the business strengthened and focused on IT Support and new technologies such as Internet and Email (with dial-up modems and internet speeds 0.6% of what they are today!)
Still one year before the birth of the IPhone, WWCS moves to its first “real” office and takes on its first employees… The business went from a family concern to employing 5 peoples, supporting 50 clients. Support engineers were running all over London to fix printer paper jams and to install Word & Excel for clients (which came on 30 disks!)… and was well before the world of remote support!
In 2011 Neil & Simone Lester retired from the business. The business continues to be run with the original ethos of strong customer care, relationships and technological mastery.
Internet Speed increased which saw the birth of the “Cloud”
In December 2014 WWCS WW Acquires Freedman IT Solutions (FIT).
FIT offered IT Support Services on a pay per hour service to 59 small businesses in London.
The acquisition went well and matched our ambitious targets for the company
In the Winter of 2015, the business moved to purpose built corporate offices in Brent Cross. This facilitated the expansion to 14 members of the WWCS Team.
Marc Lester was selected to participate in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Entrepreneur Programme. From this he gained huge expertise to push the business to where it is today.
At the beginning of 2018, WWCS was accepted as partners of the Ingram Micro Trust X Alliance; the premier global community for top-performing solution providers.
It’s a member-powered network comprising of over 340 IT solution providers worldwide with proven leaders in the midsize and enterprise business markets. Along with this partnership, WWCS completes certifications in ISO9001 & ISO27001
