Our company, key personnel and associates

Our Company

IdentityE2E was founded on the basis of a passion for successful delivery, supporting clients in demanding projects and using the full breadth and extensive knowledge and experience of our teams to provide a unique “end to end” service.

Our original work focussed on delivery of end to end services across the project lifecycle in the area of biometrics and identity management. Hence the company name! Since then, we have embraced the revolution in cloud computing and have expanded to provide dedicated service offerings in this area.

We are honest, transparent, and committed to doing the right thing. We take pride in our work, which is built on quality and integrity and doing our best for our clients. Clients trust us to deliver, and we take that seriously. Our teams will overcome obstacles, find solutions, and deliver exceptional results. Our teams act with integrity, honesty and focus on exceeding client expectations. Our company has a recognised reputation for excellence and for high quality delivery. We attract high calibre team players that help us to maintain our standards. Whilst striving for technical excellence we also stress relatability - the human touch - and foster excellent working relationships with our clients and within our teams. This is a key to the success of our company. We drive excellence and have extremely high expectations of our teams but alongside this build very real and strong relationships.

The quality of delivery by IdentityE2E has been recognised as best practice and has regularly been used as reference points for other public sector organisations.

IdentityE2E has a wide range of high-profile clients and is an experienced Crown Commercial Service (Digital Marketplace) SME supplier, including supporting some of the largest programmes in government.
