Ad-hoc support is simple to understand –

if you have a problem with any of the following:

  • computer pc or mac
  • desktop user support
  • server set up
  • networking
  • data backups
  • internet and data security
  • email
  • broadband
  • Wi Fi
  • virus
  • hardware
  • software
  • peripherals

Call us and we will fix that problem.

Our ad hoc service is really good, it’s also very likely to mean that you’ll be so impressed with us, that you want to call us regularly to keep your business running.

We offer a free 15 minute diagnosis, 15 minutes of free fix, anything thereafter is charged at our hourly rate. To help you keep the costs to a minimum we will give you an estimated cost to complete the job after diagnosis, but prior to the fix.

 

We got a call out from a small accountancy firm whom found us on Google, they had a viral infection on one of their machines and were unable to login.

We sent an engineer on site within an hour and we were able to diagnose and fix the problem. The firm has now come on board with a full support contract.
