About Nimbus Blue

We love solving your security and technology problems

Nimbus Blue was started in 2010 when founder, David Tawse, decided it was time to create an IT business in Aberdeen that focused on customer service first. With a background in retail and leisure, as well as software engineering, David combined his industry knowledge with his love of all things tech to build his company vision.

Where IT began...

Today, Nimbus Blue serves companies far beyond its Aberdeen roots, with a growing team of exceptionally talented IT professionals and award-winning services.

What Our Clients Say

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our clients have to say about working with Nimbus Blue….
Top class support from the team at Nimbus blue. From small issues to big, they deal with problems smoothly and efficiently. A true asset to our business!
Vitor was very responsive and also patient with a request that we had to amend a few times as we worked through requirements. This was much appreciated and made for a great experience overall.
Always receive fast, friendly response to my queries. Patience is top of Nimbus Blue list when dealing with less than brighter stars (me) when it comes to technology and 'all that stuff'. I always feel relaxed and know there is help out there, often when critical items are required and my techno fails on me. Highly recommended!
I contacted Vitor at Nimbus Blue due to my work computer being sluggish, he diagnosed the issue as being the hard drive, requested permission from my company to replace hard drive, replacement was quick and painless, computer is now functioning well.
Excellent service from Vitor as always! very personable and knowledgeable, solved my problem very rapidly, and probably most importantly did not talk down to me like I've experienced with IT support in the past, 10/10 from me 🙂
