An Automation Company
from the Ultima Group
Products for your business that make the complicated simple.
Here at LABS, our mission is to make the complicated simple. Founded in 2020 we are passionate about making products that deliver simplified experiences using automation for all types of businesses.
From no-code business process automation for your staff to allow them to get more done with their time, to simplified cloud automation services to get the most out of your cloud infrastructure and support your IT teams and their goals.
All from our staff that have over 60 years of technical and business experience. For LABS it’s all about helping you do more, and be more, with less. At a price point that is inclusive of any size of business.
Everyone in LABS has had many years designing, building and advising all sorts of customers with their IT projects and services, and while we have all come from slightly differing angles, with some of us from end user computing, and some of us from IT infrastructure expertise, there is one thing that unites us – automation.
Our people in LABS have spent their entire IT careers within their own specialisations helping customers to automate their services to get the absolute most out of them, their time, and their people.
Our story started in the early 2000s, where Ultima worked closely with their customer base on various Citrix deployments as part of end user computing projects. During these early days controlling onboarding and profiles of users was difficult to make it consistent and portable, especially with high user companies. Through this, Ultima created uLogon to handle these gaps through automation, adding more value and gaining a strong reputation in the market. Over the next few years more related automated solutions followed, and we even won an award from Citrix ourselves in 2015 because of our technical ingenuity.
“These [early automation solutions] really helped in pre-sales for larger customers because it allowed you to demonstrate that you didn’t just dabble in the product you were selling, but really knew your stuff.” – LABS Head of development for IA-Connect, Simon Bond.”
In the early-2010s on the more traditional infrastructure front, our technical teams became experts as technologies standout value began to level off in certain places. Customers were beginning to get interested in governance, automated approval and system health reporting services. Like with Citrix, we became the value-add experts in creating automation solutions to handle automated admin approval, audit tracking and infrastructure health check reporting and optimising. While these are common services today, 8 years ago these were cutting edge value, and our customers loved them.
Our Head of Development for IA-Connect, Simon Bond, tells his story here:
Things continued apace and these technical team members, even the ones from the early 2000s, were still at Ultima, and had become known for automation and value-add in what was now Azure cloud infrastructure and business/user processes via local, Citrix or Microsoft remote desktop services, to the point where in 2020 Ultima decided to go all in and create LABS to officially productise and accelerate our expert services.
Today, LABS is still made up of members of the two technical teams mentioned, with over 60 years of combined technical knowledge and experience on IT cloud infrastructure, end user computing, and most importantly how businesses and their day-to-day processes can be better through our automated products and experience.
“We’ve built a true community of intelligent automation pioneers, innovators, developers and doers at Blue Prism.

For partners and service providers, there is a big talent shortage today, and for you to win and retain your customer’s business, you’re having to do more with less.
The lack of technical talent availability is now one of the biggest barriers in adopting new technologies and services according to IT executives via Gartner.*
Therefore adopting automation and simplified services is now a game changer for you to be able to do more for your customer base.
