Having upgraded our server, with all of the associated problems, and wasted a substantial number of chargeable man hours doing so we looked around for a suitable IT support service provider. We obtained quotes and met with a number of IT support service providers, both local and national before choosing SmartIT. Mark (Hickin) our account manager spent time with us explaining the services Smart IT provide and how these could benefit our company, and since signing with Smart IT I think it fair to say, stealing a line from a well-known wood care specialist’s TV advert, “It does exactly what it says on the tin.”
Our server has run perfectly, any problems / queries have been addressed promptly & professionally by the Smart IT staff.
To be honest my only regret is not contacting them to have them configure the server on the first place which would have saved me substantial time (& that’s now lost billing time).
Since changing to Smart IT some time ago we have received excellent service: prompt, reliable and sensibly priced. Nothing is too much trouble, even small jobs. I would gladly recommend Smart IT to any business.
Our business is 90% reliant upon a fully integrated IT network to enable production of reports, run design software, and plot AudoCAD based drawings. The IT network can also be accessed through a VPN link allowing employees to work remotely, either from home or when on site.
Smart IT has played an essential role in expanding the network, giving much needed advice on hardware solutions, security, and back-up facilities, etc. and all explained in a manner which we understand. They have always delivered a prompt and efficient service, tailored to suit our needs, at a time convenient to us.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Smart IT to any of our clients, business associates or personal friends.
Smart IT have been reliable, efficient and friendly and now are really a part of our team here at State 8 Promotions. I have already and will continue to recommend Smart IT.
Smart IT has provided support to our company for several years. During this time they have installed a bespoke software system which has enhanced our working environment and enabled our staff to be more professional and proficient.
The system has been part of our successful ISO 9001-2 application and has been favourably commented on by successful external audits.
We have engaged the company to continue providing support for this financial year and I fully expect the contract to be renewed for the next financial year.
We have used SmartIT a number of times over the past couple of years for troubleshooting where our in-house expertise is unable to find a solution and all occasions they have successfully and quickly resolved the problem. They have been particularly helpful when dealing with software providers who have a tendency to blame the system hardware or setup when faults arise and with SmartIT’s expertise and knowledge they have been able to deal with such arguments in an authoritative manner that is simply not possible from in-house. We will certainly continue to use them in the future.
I can confirm that we have worked with Smart IT and Shaun for several years now. Through them we lease our main printer/copier/scanner/fax and we also lease our telephone system through them and they provide the maintenance for the telephones.
This year we have upgraded our telephone system to something more 21st Century. We invited 3 providers to review our needs and put together a proposal. At the end of this we appointed Smart IT.
The decision was not influenced by staying with who we knew; we were quite prepared to use a different supplier but as we went through the process it became increasingly apparent that Smart IT were trying to build something which best met our needs and that they were willing to be flexible to achieve this.
Our new system is now installed. Smart IT were very good at working around us during the installation and their engineers have been very helpful with educating staff and remediating any teething problems.
Ultimately I do think with Smart IT you get a local, personal service from a team of people who are keen to support their clients and who work in a professional manner to deliver bespoke business solutions.
IT Support is underestimated in many businesses. Smart IT has provided our company with a comprehensive service. Without their help our companies productivity would have been affected on a number of occasions. They are a good local company with excellent work ethics. We are happy to recommend them to any other business.
