Tell us a bit about the company, its history and background?

Smartworks is a company that’s based in the Bournemouth area with a nationwide customer base. The company launched in 2018 after the founders saw the trend of Smart Homes continue to increase and the team realised they had something new to offer to the industry.

What’s the deal with this new product? Can you describe it and where it fits in the market?

With the rise of Smart Homes, the founders knew it was important to meet that supply with a company that deals with all aspects of renovating a home so it becomes Smart – from the wires up. The hospitality sector has become a huge market for Smart Technology as people are becoming more reliant on WiFi and Hi-Tech to meet their demands and Smartworks delivers that.

What are your company’s unique selling points versus its competitors?

The people behind the company – Andy and Richard – have 40 years of experience between them in the technological and security sectors. The marriage between these two industries has meant that Smartworks can supply not only the best equipment for any room but also do it in the best way. Smart technology is on the rise and people are becoming more and more reliant – both inside and outside of the home. People now expect WiFi when they’re out in a restaurant or hotel and Smart Homeworks is able to offer the best solution in a simple way for users.
