ITS Talk to the Manchester Evening News about “the Secret of Success”

Ken Primrose, Managing Director of ITS speaks to MEN about the “secret of success”

What is your proudest achievement in business?

Commercialising leading edge technology – we began as a UMIST incubator company and have now commercialised the product to such success that we work over six different continents and in many industry sectors.

What is your business’ biggest asset?

I believe any company’s biggest asset to be the people, even more so in our case as we are dependent on our people to devise bespoke applications of the technology, in line with the business needs of our clients.

Tell us one great tip for a successful business?

Be flexible but never lose your focus.

What is the best piece of business advice that you have been given?

Make sure that you sell to people what they want to buy.

Why is Manchester a good place to do business?

There are many reasons, but our great transport links are quite exceptional. The airport especially makes it much easier to do business internationally and for a global operator like ITS, that’s vital.

What do you believe to be the key qualities needed to run a successful business?

It’s important to have inspired ideas, resourcefulness and ambition. It’s also vital that you employ only the best people – a good team will help to drive innovation whilst ensuring that the business is efficient and works to the highest standards.
