Back in 1998, a young Mark McLaughlin had an ability and passion for I.T. and wished to put it to good use, aiding local businesses in their continuing endeavours to achieve I.T. solutions that would benefit their own success. UKHosting Limited was born.
Renowned for good quality service even in the early days, Mark started to build an extensive portfolio of clients based solely on word of mouth referrals, a strategy which still plays the most significant role in new business leads to the present day.
On 28th February 2000, with a name change and formal acquisition of local I.T. company Cubit, Mark One Consultants was established.
As a company today, we continue to grow and develop as time & technology progresses. With an ever increasing client base from the widest of business sectors, our reputation for good quality service continues to drive us forward.

We have had some major issues with our systems and previous IT suppliers and as a result have moved to Mark One, who are attentive, responsive and extremely helpful. We finally now trust who we work with to make our systems run efficiently, we would be happy to recommend Mark One to anyone.
Having spent years worried about our lack of IT knowledge and working with aged systems it took one meeting with these guys to put our minds at rest, Mark one have managed to do in 1 month what we have been trying to do for years . No Hassle, a full solution for our business needs moving forward with full support at the end of a phone whenever needed.
We as a business and myself personally cannot speak highly enough of Mark One and wouldnt hesitate to reccomend them to anyone.
As they say “jobs a goodun” you have renewed my faith in IT support services, hopefully we can all sigh and take breath and relax a bit now.
For us it has been a fraught few months, it is very disruptive when things start going wrong and you get constant interruptions trying to sort it, whereas you guys came along and bingo, job done. As a sign of how well it went, a member of staff asked this week when the work would be complete, as they had been anticipating the same past disruptions and of course there weren’t any – so many thanks once again to all of you, and I would be grateful if you can pass that on to the others. I know “it’s your job” but as we also know, only too well, there are many ways that job can be undertaken !!!
Mark One are part of the very foundations of our business. Without them we would simply not be able to run our busy publishing company where any issues have to be resolved promptly to ensure a seamless service to our many thousands of customers. Their professional but friendly service help us keep with the rapidly changing world of IT.
Most of our problems are solved remotely by the team, but if this is not the case, a site visit is always arranged within 24 hours.
We are kept informed of the support we have accrued via a monthly report, which enables us to not only monitor support requests but also our staff training needs.
We have used Mark One Consultants for a year and a half now, and are very happy with the service we receive.
For the level of support they give their charges offer value for money. We do not feel the need to have our own IT department despite having a busy business environment, as they offer a rapid response to any queries and their staff are very knowledgeable. We have found all of the staff to be courteous and reliable, with a genuine interest in the latest support issues. They are proactive in our online security, helping us to offer the professional and secure service to our clients that is a priority for us. I am very happy to recommend them.
Knowledgeable team, very friendly and reliable, nothing is too much trouble.
We have worked with Mark One over a number of years and they continue to provide us with an excellent service. Not only are they responsive, but talk to us in a computer language we understand and always come up to the grade when issues present themselves. They fully understand how commercially critical the computer system is to keep us up and running whatever the challenge!
After years of frustration we found Mark One to support our small office and larger number of field workers. I wish we had found them years earlier. They treat us (and, I am sure, all their customers) like VIPs. Their responses are immediate and nothing is too big or too small. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Mark One has supported our IT systems for nearly 10 years. During this time we have built an excellent relationship with all the support technicians who are not only competent in their work, but are also very approachable and manage to explain solutions in a clear and understandable manner.
We have dealt with Mark One consultants for several years now, we have always found them to be extremely professional, efficient, courteous and helpful. They are one of the few companies left that go “above and beyond” to acheive their clients needs. We have recommended M1C to several of our clients that have been left frustrated by other IT companies and M1c have always dealt with them very sympathetically and resolved all their issues. We are currently opening a new office and its been very satisfying knowing that we are getting advice we can trust and service and support that is second to none.
Symonds Forecourts has been using Mark One Consultants for the last six years and would be happy to recommend them to anyone wanting IT support. It’s great to be able to talk to a “Tekkie” and not be treated as a two year old. Their commitment, friendliness and dedication to customers is second to none
I would wholeheartedly recommend the team at Mark One. From initial advice on my requirements, to installation through to ongoing support they have been faultless.
The service that we receive from the Mark One Consultants support team has been exceptional. They function in a friendly small-business fashion, but with large company professionalism, utilising innovative and exciting technology helping to provide great service for our IT infrastructure and 19 shop network.The staff go above and beyond what is required, whilst remaining warm and accessible. The projects that they have carried out for our business have been professionally managed and executed
I would like to thank the Mark One team for the prompt response to our IT project. From start to finish, the whole process ran smoothly and without any problems. I am more than happy with the result. Many thanks.
We have been using the expertise of Mark One for many years now and have always been completely satisfied with their service. This has recently included completely updating our Windows network and, as we progress into the world of tablets and beyond, the excellent support and advice we have received enables us to successfully integrate a range of IT equipment into our curriculum, particularly with the use of Foldr, facilitating cross-platform workflow.
Mark One have made a significant contribution to the consistently high standard of ICT achieved at Catcott School, as reported by Ofsted.
