About UsOur Work


We Reimagine Technology

As a creative team of technical experts, we love finding best of breed technologies, combining and wrapping them in our top notch EssentialNET service to be applied to your real business environment where we can make a difference to how your business functions. We’ll simplify your infrastructure to free up creative minds within your organisation, allowing them to get on with ‘the good stuff’, rather than just working hard to keep the lights on.

We Listen

Every project that we have been involved in over the past 14 years has started in the same way.

A listening, fact finding phase where we get together to find out the real problems, issues, drivers and business objectives. We need to know your business well enough to make good, sound business recommendations.

To do this, we need to ask some questions. Those questions quite often raise more questions.

Yes. We are thorough.

We challenge the ordinary and the established way of thinking to open up new and innovative ways of solving problems that businesses face.

We Analyse

Back in our Leatherhead offices, where the walls are made of whiteboard, the analysis phase begins.

The innovation, deployment, vendor, distributor and the customer experience teams are all on hand to give input and dig deep to find the right solution for your situation.

We have all been in the business long enough to know there are several ways to skin a cat.

Kevin Penn, our Chief Technology Innovator leads the process. Often there are many moving parts where several different technologies need to work together to make a cohesive solution. Most considered solutions are discussed, analysed and rejected. Our solution has to be 100% fit for purpose.

We Solve

Where possible, we set aside time for a face to face whiteboard session.

This is where we will present our findings from the analyse phase to you.

Although, to be fair sometimes, during the session new ideas often come to light which we explore together in more depth. No stone is left unturned.

We will work closely with your team to ensure any potential consequences of implementing a solution are clearly understood.

This collaboration between your team and ours and between all technologies involved continues throughout the project. Like a hand in a glove.

The Four Essential Pillars

We build our business with our customers being our prime focus and we do our best to understand how your business needs technology to help meet its goals.

This is why we have developed the Four Essential Pillars that underpin us as a business.

The essential Technology innovation hub

We invest a lot of time in ensuring that we do not fall into the technology for technologies sake.

For us, all technology has to materially improve your business in some discernible shape or form.

design, installation commissioning

For us, great technology has to work, work well and to add business value in the real world.

We take enormous pride in delivering the right technology in a highly professional manner (with a large dollop of fun).

continual proactive customer engagement

True partnership is core to our DNA. We see ourselves as an extension of our customers team with a real responsibility for delivering time and time again.

customer experience management

We are the people who make sure every customer gets the best value from their IT investment.

A customer who genuinely values us as a key partner means we are, and continue to, do our jobs to the best of our abilities.

Cloud is an interesting topic and one that is hot on CIO’s ‘to investigate’ or ‘to do’ list.

However, what is Cloud and what value can it bring to your business?

We believe that cloud has a place as part of a joined up strategy across your environment and what is right for one is not necessarily right for another.

We are proponents of a hybrid cloud solution where it is the right fit, but that is why we:

Listen, Analyse, Solve.

Our Work

Your Essential Journey

We Make Our Customers Happy

Working in partnership with our customers is a journey, but whilst there is a destination, it is not one that we want to have an end.


Before we can start any journey we have to have TRUST. EssentialNET understands that this is a quality that is earned, and rightly so.

A Problem solved

The key to any partnership is for you to see how we resolve the first problem you give us to run through the Listen Analyse Solve methodology.

This is where you will start to see our true value.

A Shared Vision

For the journey to be successful we have to have a mutual understanding of your business vision and the technology requirements to meet that need.

This is how a real partnership is forged – a shared and joined up vision.

True Partnership

This is the nirvanah that we are aiming for, both teams in perfect harmony.
