“I have great faith in these people and felt supported all the way. Sandeep helped me evaluate all our options to replace the backup system, looking at cost, functionality and feasibility so I could present that clearly to the Trust Board and help them make an informed decision. John’s team took care of the implementation, which all went smoothly. I’m very happy with the approach and would confidently choose this team for future projects.”Kevin McKenzieStrategic IT Manager, Learning Today Leading Tomorrow MAT

Our IT Support Services in Worcester
Your questions answered
No. We offer the same high standards of support and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for all our clients. Our two types of support contract are user and server. All other infrastructure monitoring is included with these contracts.
We do the majority of our support remotely as this is the most economical and effective solution for most clients. Our engineers do make monthly site visits to resolve issues that cannot be fixed over the phone and this is included in the standard price, provided you are located within an hour of one of our offices.
The following services are not included in most contracts and may be billed separately if you need them:
• Out of hours patching (applying security fixes to software and hardware)
• Additional site visits on top of those included in your contract
Yes, we do. It is important to differentiate between response and resolution times. If a company guarantees they will resolve an issue in a certain time period, be cautious. It isn’t always possible to predict how long it will take to get to the root cause of the problem, or what will be needed to fix it. This is why resolution times cannot be guaranteed.
Like all IT support companies, we do offer guaranteed response times in the case of a problem. There are different response times for different priority levels. All calls for help are triaged to assign the appropriate response within SLA levels and we meet our SLA targets on over 97.6% of helpdesk calls.
Yes, this is an essential part of the service. Prevention is better than cure. We carry out 24×7 monitoring and take action to prevent problems which would cause major disruption to your business before they happen.
Yes. We give every client a Technical Account Manager. This person is IT qualified and will be your central point of contact for everything, so you can build a long-term relationship with someone who doesn’t just do your admin and pass you on, but who is leading the co-ordination of your support service. They will get to know your business and plans for the future, to ensure IT aligns with your goals.
If you choose on-site support or regular visits from an engineer, you are also likely to build a working relationship with one or two specialist dedicated contacts you can deal with.
If you choose one or more engineers to work in your office or workplace you will see the same person or people every day.
Whatever hardware and software you already have in place, we can support it. If we advise you on new solutions, rest assured we’re independent of all providers. In the ICT industry this is called being “vendor-agnostic” and it means we focus on finding the best solution for your requirements, regardless of where it comes from.
We charge all customers monthly and take payment by Direct Debit under the terms of the Direct Debit guarantee.
Our helpdesk is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm. We give all clients the FW Endpoint application which they can use to log tickets with us. If you prefer, you can phone us, email us or chat online via this website.
Yes. Your call will be taken by a qualified member of our team who will either fix it on the spot or assign it to the most suitably qualified or experienced team member to resolve.

Not all companies are ready or have the appetite to move to the cloud.
Data centres have much greater security and redundancy in their buildings, and will have taken into account things like flood plains and other issues that may not have been looked at when your company selected its site in Northampton.
We continue to support data centre platforms.
When they do need replacing, we work with you to identify the best solution possible.
Cyber Security options for all business types and budgets
