Hardware Support

Cost effective hardware support for all of your mission critical hardware and Midrange systems and day to day equipment, encompassing PCs, laptops, mobile devices, printers, peripherals, servers, your networking and communications equipment.

IT Systems and networks are placed under a lot of pressure during working hours by their users and the hardest pressed equipment are desktop PC's, printers and servers. Users depend on this essential equipment to function reliably so they can do their jobs as normal. Any disruption to a single user can have a knock on effect, which can cause more serious problems if left unattended. Shoring up all of these peripheral devices is the network infrastructure which is also prone to damage.

Key benefits of Hardware Support:

Guaranteed repairs 24 x 7


Free up time for your IT department to concentrate on critical IT issues

Bespoke contract

Various SLA's

Dedicated on-site engineers

Customers benefit from cost savings through economies of scale and guaranteed repair times, but also from the ability to focus their own IT resources on more critical business related and IT issues such as project work.
