Intelligent IT...

zupaGroup is building an IT powerhouse, targeted to do
continuous good for the human race and our planet.

We know this is a BIG statement. We will focus on developing business efficiencies through our new ‘’, e-commerce system due for release towards the end of 2018 (to help businesses be stronger and more profitable), ‘zupaStar’ app-based lifestyle management tools (to enable everyone to manage their online experiences), and invest in ‘zupaWorld’ solutions (to help bright ideas where early stage funding may not be available).

This strategy has already started in earnest, and will be progressively communicated through social media as our plan rolls out in 2018. We cannot provide details of all our ideas for obvious competitive reasons, but please do follow us on Twitter @zupaGroup and if you want to speak to our founder and managing director at any time, please contact Jerry directly at

Jerry Brand

Jerry Brand

MD and Product Owner

Finally, Jerry runs the ‘big picture’ at zupaTech with end-user product design and corporate strategy among his more prominent skills. His secret to over 30 years success as an entrepreneur is a mixture of sheer stamina in arguing his corner, and failing that, he can now officially blame his age as the reason he forgets what he has agreed to! Seriously though, as a customer of zupaTech (buyer, supplier or colleague), you will find someone who has total focus on you enjoying your engagement with our team and range of products and services.
