Tanist and Eva Health Technologies (formerly Microtest) are today announcing a new collaboration to deliver enhanced managed IT hardware and telephony support to local businesses in Cornwall. The partnership of two long-standing Bodmin-based service providers will help ensure personalised service for local businesses, and offer current Microtest customers additional services and new enhanced service packages.

As part of this arrangement, Tanist will take over the ownership and operations of the non-clinical Microtest business and ensure continued service for these customers going forward. Alongside the contracts, Tanist will also take on a small number of our staff to continue to service those customers and retain their knowledge of the commercial customer requirements.

NOTE: For Eva Health’s clinical customers (private medical and NHS customers using Evolution software) there will be no changes. Our experienced team will continue to support our clinical customers. For any support needs, please call the usual number: 03301 808 608

John Holman, MD of Tanist said: “Having worked alongside each other for many years, I am pleased to be able to collaborate with the new team at Eva to offer enhanced service to Microtest’s commercial customers. I hope that this collaboration helps to extend the reach and strength of Tanist across Cornwall. We will be contacting all customers who will benefit from this new arrangement over the coming weeks, and look forward to building a successful relationship with them all.”


Maddy Phipps-Taylor, CEO of Eva Health Technologies said: “As part of the acquisition of Microtest by PUBLIC, and subsequent rebranding, Eva Health Technologies will be exclusively focused on supporting NHS and clinical customers with their software and hardware needs. With the renewed focus on the healthcare sector, I wanted to ensure that our local commercial customers outside of the health sector had the best possible service and benefited from the choice of new and enhanced services to meet their business needs. The collaboration with John, David and the team at Tanist is an excellent way to continue to support these customers into the future. It has been a pleasure working with the team at Tanist and I look forward to working closely with the team to ensure a very successful partnership.”
