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, EXOR 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.


We have one the early implementations of SAP in Local Government and have exploited it for Finance, HR and Procurement.

We provide this service to 550 schools throughout Hampshire and to HFRS as well as core Council departments who are able to benefit from personal access to account details and to an electronic payslip.

Working with the Treasurers Department we host over 40 payrolls (including over 500 schools) and over 30 sizeable pension payrolls for organisations ranging from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service to local colleges.
