About Us

Tyrrell Business Support Services Limited was founded in 2006 by Nigel Tyrrell with a view to empowering small businesses to grow, succeed and most importantly take control of their information systems.

Founder Nigel Tyrrell started his career in the dual role of IT Manager and Accounts Manager a small engineering company M G Electric (Colchester) Ltd where he was fortunate to have a boss (Graham Parker) who believed in imparting knowledge and because of this he learned about the many facets of running a small business. Graham Parker coached and encouraged Nigel through his early years establishing a driven work ethic and sharing his knowledge of both Accounting Practices and implementing Computer Software. Initially using a manual Kalamazoo system and then an IBM System 34 running MAAPICS early MRP software, a forerunner to the ERP Software of today.

Not being afraid to share knowledge and coaching others was a lesson Nigel would never forget and so when establishing Tyrrell Business Support Services Limited it is was with a vision to coach others and empower them to be self-sufficient. In doing so Nigel believes that systems used by large corporations can be scaled down to offer massive benefit to smaller companies.

The approach adopted by Tyrrell Business Support is simple, we are not experts in all things, but as founder Nigel Tyrrell explains “like the AA will either know or will find an expert for you”. Today in business there is a lot of “red tape” and none of us can be experts in everything but we can share advice in own area of expertise.

The Tyrrell Business Support team of associates like our business is constantly evolving, so if you feel you have an area of expertise you can share please contact us.

About the founder Nigel Tyrrell

Having spent many years as a Finance Manager and IT Manager at M G Electric and later Group Systems Administrator for the Lancaster Garage Group Nigel Tyrrell moved into the world of IT Solution Consultancy because “I did not like the way we were sold our Group Computer Solution at Lancaster Garage Group on a number of levels”.

At Lancaster Nigel was fortunate to be mentored by the late Ronnie Lancaster about the importance of making your customer feel like they are “the only customer in the world”. This approach was far from his experience of IT Sales and he wanted to make a difference.

Nigel took this belief with him when he moved into the IT Solution supply industry as a Solution Consultant, firstly with Slinn Computer Group authors of the market leading Print Management Software PECAS which he was instrumental in taking overseas, then Weir Systems and their market leading Fresh Produce Software before moving to MPS in Hull and the world of Sage L500 ERP Software.

Sage 1000 ERP and Sage X3 Software now forms a central role in the Tyrrell Business Support portfolio as they have now been the outsourced Sales arm of Defacto Solutions Limited a Sheffield based Sage ERP Complementary Software Module Developer owned by Alec Willis for over 6 years. In that time helping Defacto Solutions to evolve from a highly respected Sage Manufacturing Complementary Developer relying almost entirely on Sage UK outsourced development into an established growing Sage L500 and 1000 ERP Complementary Module provider with more than 20 Modules including the now universally renowned DefCapture. Alec Willis comments “Tyrrell Business Support have helped me evolve Defacto Solutions into a worldwide solution provider, at Defacto Solutions we have the skills to develop first rate software, Tyrrell Business Support have enhanced the Commercial awareness that has enabled us to grow”
