Andy Morrison

Managing Director & IT Guru

I’m MD of Andisa and have always been a techie. Officially I am MD of Andisa however I am also the lead “IT Guru”.

My title has been earned while helping install the Rural IT project we are involved in in Nepal. My belief is that IT providers have a responsibility to help other businesses grow by installing quality networks and then working with customers to make sure the network grows with them. If you ever contact any of our customers I am sure they would back that up about our service.

My training is as an Electronics Engineer and more recently I have worked through the MikroTik Certification – MTCNA. MTCWE and MTCRE.

I’ ve also passed and practiced  Prince II project management, too many  server accreditations to list and presented at the MikroTik User Meeting in Kathmandu!

During 2016-17 I was President of Harrogate Brigantes Rotary Club. Look at our Corporate Social Responsibility page for details of projects we get involved with.
My biggest challenge in Rotary was successfully raising £85k and then bringing 40 students plus teachers across from Nepal, to perform in our own concert with 350 kids on stage! That was a big project to plan, manage, coordinate….

I am proud to be surrounded by customers who have very similar beliefs and thank them for their continued partnership. If you want to be part of this ethos then get in touch!

Jayne Morrison

Company Secretary

Jayne is Company Secretary and co founder of Andisa. She is responsible for keeping the office running smoothly and also for getting the rest of the team on site on time (not always an easy task but she reckons that she’s qualified for the task because she is mother of three Andy clones!)

Q. What’s it like working with family?
A
. Annoying but we get the job done and the clients systems are always working reliably. Andy and Paolo have a real passion to make sure that we have a focus on keeping our clients systems 100%.

Q. What do you do out side of Andisa?
A
. I’m Tawny Owl for 11th Harrogate Brownies, Treasurer for 15th Harrogate Scouts and sing in the St Paul’s Church Choir. It keeps me busy but its great fun.

Q. Wow do you have time for personal hobbies?
A.
I ice cakes to relax, although Andy would say it increases stress when I’m there at midnight the night before a big familly party, still putting the marzipan on.

Paolo Medori

IT Guru

Paolo has worked for Andisa for 8 years and together with Andy and Callum makes up the technical workforce. Outside of work he loves snowboarding, playing video games and cooking. One day he’s hoping to be fit enough to enjoy playing football for real as well as Fifa 2021.

His family run a local Italian restaurant called “Louigi’s”. He has learnt his client skills and patience working as a chef and waiter before starting a career in IT.

Paolo joined Andisa after leaving the 3rd largest nationwide insurance broker where he provided desktop and server support.

Recently Paolo has previously studied the Microsoft server 2012 MCSE training and has just topped up with the Server 2016 & 19 courses to make sure he is up to date before Microsoft restructure their training in 2021.

He also successfully studied for his Mikrotik Router Certified Network Associate training and is ladder and harness certified. We often get involved in high work on roofs and tall buildings when we install Wi-Fi equipment

Paolo passed his MCP Networking with Server 2016

Callum Morrison

Support Manager

Callum Morrison

Callum is self motivated and eager to learn. Our customers say that he is just fun to have around but very quickly back this up by saying that he’s like a dog with a bone when they have a problem. He just wants to fix it and make sure the customer is happy.

He started to work for us as a consultant and has recently been promoted to the role of Support Manager. He works from Wales and he designed our phone system to work smoothly with people all around the country.
On a weekly and monthly basis he checks all tickets to make sure that we are delivering as we promised, and to see if you have changing needs that mean we have to adapt.
That means he makes a real difference because he keeps our offering tuned to your needs!

Callum was previously MD and owner of  “River and Soul Adventures” www.riverandsouladventures.com This is where he gained his attention to detail and drive for customer service.

While working for Andisa he has passed his ITiL Foundation certification, proving that he understands how Support, Projects and customer service all need to work together to give good outcomes.

The future – IT Guru No.3

We are still looking for more IT Guru’s. COVID slowed us down but we still had growth through the period.

It is really important now that we find the right people who will grow with Andisa.

We need people in the team who can evangelise about the future for our clients and who can help set roadmaps so that we are delivering IT that will enhance the lives and processes of our clients.

365 and Teams together with Flow can really help our clients businesses. If you are that person, enjoy the challenge of understanding clients, their IT and processes and are a great communicator then send us a covering letter and CV.

 

IT Guru – No 4

This post has been filled by Jonathan who is working as an intern while he completed his degree in Aerospace Engineering.

Jonathan worked over the summer period throughout the COVID lockdown and was brilliant at supporting the rest of the team, keeping us on track and ensuring clients were responded to even when we couldn’t be face to face – well done Jonathan.
