Our network support team has a straight forward approach to service – take responsibility and get it fixed. Whether it is a hardware issue, a software fault, a cabling problem or a glitch in the operation of a remote virtual server we will diagnose teh problem and fix it – the buck stops with us.
AMAS IT fully appreciate the inconvenience and potential revenue loss caused when your system fails. We support and protect every aspects of your system, so no matter what the underlying problem is we will fix it, quickly and efficiently.
Most SME’s cannot justify the expense of a full time IT department, but still need the functionality of much larger organisations where applications are often spread across hosted platforms with core applications typically still held on-premise.
AMAS IT limited is an independent company that works as part of a group of associated companies (collectively known as Advanced Group) that together provide a full range of technology services; our associates specialise in different areas such as telecoms and infrastructure cabling provision.

My career started in the late 1980’s when I joined a company (Beta Computers) based in Linlithgow that developed a range of Financial Systems targeted at the financial intermediaries, banks and pension funds. As the business developed I moved from development into technical sales becoming the Major Accounts Manager in Scotland before leaving Beta to start my own software company.
Having built the business (Advanced Management Accounting Solutions) through the 90’s to become Scotland’s largest Sage Solutions providers and a leading SME applications provider, I concentrated on developing software plugins for Sage. During this time I designed and developed a range of SME applications including the TeamNet System used by DX Communications (with over 200 sites it was the largest Sage System ever implemented for Sage Line 100) and the Global Trader EPOS system.
I took some time away from the IT Industry in 1997, purchasing a Restaurant and Bar in Glasgow Mojo’s. With two partners, including the Celebrity Chef John Quigley, we went on to buy the old Christies Auction House on Bath Street and build the night club Lowdown and restaurant Quigley’s before returning to AMAS in 2002.
I am a very experienced Microsoft Support Engineer since the 1990’s (before I turned to Microsoft I was a Novell Engineer), a system audit consultant (forensic accountancy) and is an experienced software designer and developer. I have extensive experience as a company director.
Starting in 1987, that’s 30 years experience in the IT Solutions industry designing, delivering and supporting SMEs both large and small with Business Systems including Accounting, ERP, CRM, Telesales (MOTO), Service & Contract Management, FM, WMS, BI, MRP, MRP2, EPoS, eCommerce and IoT plus custom solutions.
I’ve been in Channel Management, had Business Partnerships (VAR/ISV) and Software Development for Sage 50, Sage Line 100, Sage MMS Sage 200, Pegasus Opera II, Interprise Suite, Connected Business, SAP BO and SAP Business One (SAP B1).
I advise on and design solutions for an individual business’s needs, doing systems analysis and scoping, no matter how complex or simple a business’s requirement are. We use the latest, tried and tested technology, with exceptional service and combined with our experience we build long term partnerships with our customers.
