    IGP Technology merge with Aspire Consulting

    As with many long standing business relationships, alignments start to appear. As one of our oldest customers, Aspire Consulting was working in sectors and with businesses that IGP Technology was keen to push in to with the Managed Security portfolio of products and services. Likewise, Aspire was working on many new projects that were increasingly being technology driven.

    An agreement was made that IGP Technology would become a part of the Aspire Consulting business, continuing to service the existing and growing customer base as well as develop the product set offered by Aspire Consulting’s other business areas.

    IGP Technology are born!

    Founded on 9th February 2003, Blue Rising Systems was born out of the closure of a Midlands based IT service provider. Based out of Birmingham City centre we saw great growth amongst the Manufacturing sector.

    Shortly after the birth of Blue Rising Systems, the UK dealership rights to an international POS and Stock Control application was acquired and sister company DataScan Retail Systems was formed. The two businesses ran side by side providing bespoke solutions to their own customer sets.
