A West Midlands IT specialist is celebrating after its work with London's largest further education college group was recognised with a coveted industry award.


Wolverhampton-based MSV Consultancy scooped the award for Project of the Year (up to £250,000 budget) in the Real IT Awards, presented in London on May 9.


A complex transition programme kick-started by the merger of three colleges at Capital City College Group (CCCG) necessitated a major upgrade of its IT infrastructure. MSV Consultancy focused on enhancing the technology experience for all stakeholders by ensuring organisational resilience, since system failures in a technology-led learning environment could seriously compromise the work of students and staff.


Most importantly, in light of the threat from increasingly sophisticated malware attacks, MSV's custom-built solution was designed to secure and back up data and ensure that all of CCCG's sites are better prepared to deal with cyber threats.


MSV Consultancy director Tim Killick said: "It's the first time we have put ourselves forward for an industry award so we're thrilled to come away with the Project of the Year accolade. We understand the competition was strong this year, so huge thanks to our team for the innovative way in which they approached the challenge and implemented the solution, and to CCCG for its support."


Jeremy Well, IT Director of CCCG, said: "Working closely with our in-house team, MSV maximised existing knowledge and resources within our organisation to deliver a cost-effective IT solution on time and within budget. We congratulate the MSV team on winning this prestigious award, which is testament to its technical knowhow and project management expertise."


Set up by the Corporate IT Forum five years ago, the Real IT Awards acknowledge expertise across the IT spectrum, with particular emphasis on team effort. The judging panel comprised senior executives at blue chip organisations, including London School of Economics, News Corp, Ofsted and the Economist Intelligence Unit as well as senior Home Office and Cabinet Office officials.
