It is becoming an increasingly complex world for small businesses, with a vast range of business technology and software available.

A new Ipswich business is hoping to cut through the complexities of technology for other firms.

Powerplay Projects aims to provide individual solutions for companies who are faced with a vast range of tech and software available.

Founder Robin Penfold launched it in March, originally at Basepoint business centre, after working as a freelance and for other companies in the sector.

Mr Penfold, 35, said: “We can provide anything from stand-alone apps for iPads to fully integrated systems.

“I really like the creativity of building bespoke systems for businesses.

“I think it can have a really positive effect on people’s businesses.”
