FAQ

How can you help with website security
We can perform an initial assessment which could involve vulnerability scanning your site and advising on the findings, reviewing the hosting platform you are using to make sure it is working well for you and that you are protected from DDOS attacks. We can also check the list of users who have administrator access and make any changes you want.
Can you help with the day to day running of IT in our company?
Yes, we can act as your IT manager if you require to work with your suppliers to help resolve problems or deliver projects. We can also act as your 1st/ 2nd/ 3rd line IT support team helping fix your user's issues when you don't have time to. Typically this would be for a fixed period whilst other projects are going on, but we can also help in the longer term by engaging with the right support contract for your needs.
I want to start using Office 365, can you help?
Yes, we have worked on migrating complicated environments to Microsoft 365, and can do this for you. As this is something you will only do once it can be hard to build the right skills in-house to be able to perform the work. We can help you in the planning stage, and be involved in the migration with your resources assisting as far as you would like them to.
Can I use Microsoft Teams for online meetings and chat with customers?
Microsoft Teams works best if you migrate email to Microsoft 365 as well, but you can set it up without changing your email system. We can help set it up, roll it out and train your staff how to use it!
What sorts of website can you help with?
We have supported sites hosted on Windows servers using IIS and core, but most recently we focus on WordPress as this is the most commonly used platform for the majority of small and medium businesses.
I placed John in his role at ******* in 2016 and since then have assisted him in the growth of his team, which in the last 3 years has been significant. At the point John joined, there was a team of 5/6 individuals with no specific teams. Since that point, John has built a a structured department of capable technology specific teams that have been a key factor in the rapid growth and success of ******* as a business. The feedback I've had from people I have placed within his team is that he is a supportive, caring and knowledgeable leader.

John is one of the most knowledgeable IT professionals I have ever worked with. I had the pleasure of working with John for a number of years and throughout that time he was always willing to go above and beyond to help not just his own team but also other teams within the business whenever required. He is highly skilled in a wide range of technologies and has the rare ability of bridging the gap between highly technical teams and C-level decision makers. I would highly recommend John to any business looking for a self motivated, determined technology professional.
