Trenorth operates in the Business to Business Sector
Before the days of the internet and websites, companies would prepare leaflets and pamphlets, send them to prospective clients, and hope for the best. With response rates for B2B marketing efforts less than 3%, that means that 97 out of every 100 leaflets either end up in the trash or clutter your intray for a couple of weeks. We didn't know who you were then. So, just because you are reading this, it means that our 'electronic' leaflet has stopped our contribution to the problem of waste in making paper, BUT knowing who you are doesn't make a difference. You could be a casual browser, just looking at where our Gareth works, or just checking the competition. Therefore, we cannot class you as a 'hot-lead' to follow up. So cookies serve no purpose, so we don't use them.

A quick history
We have been here a while, youmay have seen our work or we may have just worked for you, but discover what we really do
Trenorth was founded in 2007 by project managers with the sole aim of offering an alternative to the traditional administrative-heavy processes and huge PMO departments that stifle effective project delivery. Their mantra was "we don't polish the shovel, we roll-up our sleeves and dig in" reflecting the belief that when the need arises, all resources are focused to produce the desired results. This tenet remains at Trenorth's core.
Trenorth's Media division grew out of clients' needs and is now a growing and sucessful part of Trenorth's offering in the US and UK with ranging from website design through custom animations.
It was during a contract in the US that lead Trenorth to contract exclusively with a like-minded Nevada based company to offer our full range of services in the Americas while maintaining its European clients. The company maintained its media and services under Trenorth and placed its technical and programme management services under exclusive contract to our partner. Following the successful completion of several major projects over four years, our engagement ended and Trenorth is now an Information Technology based Business Consultancy providing Development, Program Management, Implementation and Deployment Services together with Digital Media Services in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
Trenorth is aware that many of you reading this will be highly unware of the company and the nature of its services. But rest assured, that is how it should be. Some may see the Trenorth name on the bottom of websites, others may just be users of the technology we have installed. All Trenorth can say is that it is now the one IT company ... looking forward to the future
Trenorth Consultancy Services
Trenorth offers a range of information technology consulting services, covering project management, software development, application design and development and IT management. Trenorth utilizes a very talented and seasoned team of I.T. professionals who understand our client's business challenges and practical methodologies, delivering quality solutions that result in measurable results.
In addition to the services offered in application and software development, senior Locum consultants provide highly effective IT advisory services to numerous organizations. These services have been utilized by clients when faced with such challenges as the replacement of a mission-critical systems, build versus buy decisions, evaluation of IT departmental effectiveness, staff planning and IT strategy development.
Trenorth started as a project management consultancy and through the experience of its founders, it is apparent that all the planning and charts in the world will not replace the knowledge gained through years of successful delivery. Literally anything, from a stray insect bite on a key team-member to a major weather event could throw your schedule and costs out of the window,
Trenorth only uses experienced project managers, versed in the knowledge of PMBok, Prince II, Agile and other methodolgies tempered with the experience of knowing how to cope when the lesser-spotted wood-weavil eater nests in front of the key server connection. More than one client has benefited from Trenorth, either from realistic re-alignment of project deliverable dates or in several instances, implementing new vendor or sub-contractor controls.
Whether it's installing one computer, upgrading software or turning an office into a call center, someone has to do the work and more importantly, do it right first time. From planning to the final go-live, Trenorth has earned the right to say that deployment is one of its major strengths. Working with clients on projects ranging from software ports, SCADA deployment, Comms Room builds, printer consolidation, WAN and LAN installations, Microwave communications, RF networks across a whole US State, warehouse systems and simple Pc refresh, deployment services has been at the core of Trenorth's services.
With experience predating Trenorth's founding in 2007, it is safe to say that there is currently no aspect of IT that Trenorth has not deployed, either as lead contractor or as a specialist vendor to key consortia.
When it says that its as easy as placing the last jigsaw piece, Finagle’s Law of Negative Dynamics (that's sod's law to you and I) says that for some inexplicable reason, anything that can go wrong will, and at the worst possible time. Coupled with Trenorth's deployment services, Trenorth Integration seeks not only to minimise risk, but to gain advantage by ensuring "things have a plurality of parts and are not merely a complete aggregate but instead some kind of a whole beyond its parts" (Aristotle, Metaphysics 8.6)
By careful evaluation of the existing, the proposal and the requirements, Trenorth works to ensure that the latest widget or software product is not only deployed, but fully integrated, either through its interfaces, function or even just the base user change management to ensure maximum return on investment.
Trenorth Media Services
Trenorth's digital media's division grew out of a few projects undertaken for a specific client in the UK and has now grown into web design, digital video and ecommerce. Our digital video services are only undertaken as part of website design and we do currently undertake stand-alone commissions.
The background to our original website in 2007 was a photograph taken in in Chicago, IL, in late 2005. This image has been used by use for many purposes, retinted, recolored, transposed, more ways than we can remember. Over a decade later, digital media has grown to become one of our major markets.
Trenorth is well aware that building a custom website is not inexpensive and many companies will be tempted to use some of the 'package' offerings advertised on television and other digital channels. Although the investment may be smaller, it has disadvantages as well. You still have to create the content, write the text, upload the pictures and all within the limitations of the theme offered. But there are a myriad of traps for the unwary: Are your images in the public domain? Is the image royalty free for commercial use? Have you got a Model Release for that person's photo?
Don't forget the legal requirements, for example, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and CalOPPA. Then there are the rules concerning advertising, especially for some professions such as lawyers, where rules even cover how long you must retain old versions of your website. Assuming you did have the time, the peace of mind of using Trenorth to handle your online presence often works out to be a better investment than diy.
Trenorth's Media team has built a reputation for producing high quality images and website animations. The burning dragon image is from a promotional video we made for ourselves, based on our dragon logo, stylised by one of our graphic artists.
But even stills can be animated, the picture of Zzyzx Road was taken in 2007 on the return to LAX for a flight to London. Using the latest in software and website coding techniques, this was transformed into the banner image you see below. More of our work is published on our various clients' websites.
And the result is:
Space. Really Huge.

Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. You may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space.
