At arrt, we know integration, inside out. As a team of IT specialists, we’ve collaborated on a diverse range of successful projects for major brands and industry leaders.

Find out more about us below…


The team at arrt have worked within the integration space since the early 2000s. In that time, we’ve seen the extensive adoption of middleware products and numerous attempts to standardise the way integration is implemented.

We’ve witnessed at first-hand the adoption of SOA, people quickly jump on the Enterprise Service Bus bandwagon and then just as quickly jump straight back off again.

We’ve lived through SOAP, WCF, Rest API’s, XML, JSON, Data Contracts and endless debates about how to expose your service endpoints. And finally, we witnessed the demise of traditional middleware monoliths to be replaced by microservices.

You can find many opinions on how things should be done, but what we’ve learned is that most businesses find a way to get things working for themselves. We can help you to make that journey a little bit easier. Not by suggesting you start again, but by delivering real business value with subtle and meaningful changes to the way you integrate.

anthony bennett.

integration specialist

Tony arrived in IT in the mid 90’s and initially worked within the process control and automation space. Working for a system integrator as a junior developer he quickly gained experience on large scale process automation solutions for the likes of British Steel, National Grid and British Nuclear Fuels.

Moving forward a decade, Tony seized the opportunity to move into the integration space working with technologies such as BizTalk and the earliest version of the .NET framework.

Who would have imagined that almost 20 years later he’s still getting his hands dirty, fighting with binding files and deployments? Thankfully, there’s now a plethora of alternatives to BizTalk which allow you to move your workloads into the cloud. As an experienced specialist, he sees great things happening over the next decade within the cloud computing space and is often heard fondly saying: “onwards and upwards.

Outside of work Tony enjoys golf, very much hoping to break 80 sometime this century. He also occasional gets out on his road bike (pedal power) but this tends to be when the sun is shining and there’s a nice café at the end of the route.
