Adam McCormick

Meet the team

'When I was little I wanted to be a fireman.' says Adam. 'I used to watch a lot of Fireman Sam. I still think it's a really cool job.' When asked why, he says, 'I always wanted to have a go on the pole. I'd have one in my house if I could. It'd be more fun than the stairs.'

Transcendit's web developer Adam never pursued his dream of becoming a fireman, but he did pursue other avenues before settling in IT. He studied for his Business degree with the Open University, and enjoyed learning about the different facets of business, 'I read a whole chapter about queuing. It sounds boring but it was actually really interesting.'

'And then after I finished my degree I thought about what I wanted to do. I'd always been interested in computers. But I felt like if I didn't give teaching a go, I would have regretted it.'

Adam got a job for a year working in a nursery school, which he really enjoyed. 'Go in to work, play with blocks, play with the water, play outside. It was great.' But after becoming a primary school teacher, Adam knew it wasn't for him, 'I just found it really stressful. I really admire teachers - I couldn't do it.'

He eventually found his way back to working with computers, 'I'd done a bit in the past for the family business, I'd built them a website. I could see that software was becoming a big part of different industries. So I did an MSc in computer science in Newcastle University.'

Adam then got a position at Transcendit, and started creating websites and applications for our customers. 'You can make a website, and then have it up and running really quickly. And then people can come and visit that website from all over the world straight away. It's pretty awesome.'


The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for a refurbished computer, cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.

Excellent service, as ever, and very prompt. It's very reassuring to know the support is there. Sharon Langridge, Langridge Employement Law
