Hampshire IT

Hosted applications and managed services

Our award winning service (Hantsnet) achieves low total cost of ownership and reduces the need to travel to sites to provide desktop support. Most of our several thousand users access the service through a Windows Terminal; although PC and laptop services are also available.

This highly flexible service allows a user to log in at any terminal or PC on any of our hundreds of sites. Laptops and PDAs are able to increase this flexibility and we provide a secure remote access solution for mobile and home workers. This environment makes it easy to deliver business applications and we have done much ground breaking work delivering such applications as GIS as well as SWIFT, SAP and Impulse.

Hampshire IT is ideally situated to provide a similar service to partners. Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service have just such a managed desktop service, including Microsoft Office, filtered internet and spam filtered mail with all their business applications. Similarly we provide hosted applications for a range of partners, including Portsmouth City Council and New Forest District Council.


The IBC (Integrated Business Centre) enables participating organisations to achieve more efficient use of public money by enabling staff to carry out a range of automated transactional tasks relating to HR, finance, including payroll, and procurement.

Accessible through desktops and some mobile devices, the IBC is currently used by thousands of staff working for Hampshire County Council, Hampshire Fire & Rescue and Hampshire Constabulary.
