Managed IT Consultancy Packages

Our Managed IT Consultancy Packages are aimed at all businesses that have a major dependence on their IT infrastructure.

For small companies, the best choice may be to avail of our services occasionally, only when the need arises – ie Break / Fix policy

But if you are calling for assistance frequently or downtime is not acceptable and you would prefer a more proactive rather than “fire fighting” approach, then we recommend a Managed IT Consultancy Package – providing a much more pro-active support mechanism for your IT infrastructure.

Proactive IT support means you have fewer problems and we know whats going wrong before you, allowing us to fix the problem immediately.
If your company’s IT is down, how much is it costing your business? IT problems mean your staff are not able to work effectively, resulting in revenue loss.
