Michel Lane

Managing Director

After gaining degrees in both IT and Business Management, Michel was employed by IBM. Working as part of a leading team, Michel gained numerous professional IT certificates, moving him to the top of his profession.

Following a number of changes in the industry, Michel realised there was an opening in the market to provide a full IT Support service to local businesses, that provided value and a personal touch.

Michel created LaneSystems in 1994 with the initial aim of aiding small businesses with a level of support currently unseen in the IT industry.

As the industry has developed so too has LaneSystems, with the improved Business Partnership strategy that we have in place today. By developing high-quality business support, LaneSystems aim to become your IT manager, looking after all your IT support and maintenance needs, whilst constantly monitoring ways to improve your organisation through the latest technologies.

The basic ethos within LaneSystems is: "Training and knowledge sharing is the primary key element for any successful company. Rewarding staff for their ability to gain qualifications and develop their skills contributes to better knowledge base of the company and our Business partners."

"LaneSystems believe in working with a company, not for a company, as this develops a better bond of trust. Our clients know that we will always be there to assist with growth and provide advice. Our business partners depend on LaneSystems for their IT operations, Support, Reliability and are not purely cost driven; this forms a symbiotic relationship with all of our partners."
