Welcome to axisfirst

Formed in 1980 (initially as Softpac Limited but as Systems AXIS Limited since 1985), axisfirst has been a provider of IT products and solutions for over thirty years. The business is privately owned and all of the shareholders work within the business full time.

With offices in Bridgwater (Somerset) and Bromsgrove (West Midlands), approximately 50 full time staff and an annual turnover of over £2million, we service small and medium businesses throughout the UK. Our experience and stability is testimony to our commitment to building long term relationships with our clients.

In 2005, Systems AXIS adopted the trading style axisfirst, as part of a corporate rebranding project to more clearly identify the separate divisions within the company.

All software and website development is done in-house in the UK.




The original business of Systems AXIS was developing and marketing a range of business software. Originally called AXIS MAP, that software is now known as axis diplomat and there are specific variants for a number of different markets, including Office Products, Wholesale / Distribution, Hire and Payroll.


At axisfirst we supply a wide range of ICT products and services for small and medium-sized businesses. From Support Services and Consultancy to Installation, Backup and Security, axisfirst is able to provide professional solutions for today's business.


Our Web Services department specialises in solutions for business, including web design services and eCommerce solutions based around axis vMerchant (offering exceptionally close and seamless integration with axis diplomat to provide a true end-to-end solution).
