Teamwork is one our core values

We take a great amount of pride in the team we have built over the years at Meritec.  Teamwork is one of our core values and we have an eclectic mix of people with an incredibly diverse technical and non-technical skill-set, but we all have a common shared focus on ensuring the customer experience from start to finish exceeds expectations.

Our team is currently in excess of 50 hardworking and enthusiastic individuals - below is an overview of just a few of the current team.

Adam Wilkinson - Director

Adam joined Meritec in 2004 having worked for his own web development company for a couple of years after graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Computing. Adam joined the company as a software developer and technical consultant before working his way up to become the Technical Services Manager. Adam’s strong technical background and breadth of knowledge across all disciplines of ICT lead to him later becoming Chief Technical Officer (CTO). Adam is a self-confessed “technology geek” and has a genuine interest in emerging hardware and software trends and spends much of his spare time reading about technology and software solutions if he's not watching football or racking up the miles on his spin bike.

Adam Gardner - Director

Prior to joining Meritec in 2008, Adam had a successful and very enjoyable career in Local Government, working in a range of roles across Revenues, Benefits and Customer Service. Since joining Meritec he has led from the front and in the last decade overseen the huge growth of Meritec’s popular Revenues and Benefits service Flex which is now recognised nationally as a trusted and highly valued partner to many UK Local Authorities.

Steve Wilkinson - Director

Steve has over 50 years of experience working within the IT and technology sector. Having work in a multitude of roles and levels, from computer operator, programmer, systems analyst, project manager to sales manager at Fujitsu, Steve is now the Director of Digital Learning at Meritec. Steve co-founded Meritec back in 1996 and has enjoyed growing the business into the thriving organisation that it is today. Steve's vast his experience and knowledge, coupled with his enthusiasm and drive to deliver leading edge solutions for clients has been key in seeing Meritec grow from strength to strength. Steve is also a keen a loyal Bradford City fan who gets grumpy when they lose (which unfortunately is quite often at the moment).

An eclectic mix of talent

Whether you speak to us about a potential upcoming project, require a product demonstration, or work in partnership on implementing a live project, we hope our technical knowledge, pride in our work and dedication to customer satisfaction shines through.  Here are a cross section of some of the team….

But when should you focus on training and upskilling your existing teams, and when should you outsource?

Why low-code systems are the way forward

In the early days of the software development, everything had to be coded from scratch. Making changes to an application wasn’t a two-minute job, and functionality was limited, to say the least. These days, low-code systems enable anyone to create workflows, online forms and automations, even if they have limited or no coding skills. It’s one of the reasons so many businesses and organisations are opting for low-code systems, and it’s why we think they are the way forward.
