Microsoft Price Rises

Microsoft have announced a “pricing realignment” in October intended to “highlight the benefits of our pricing for a cloud-first world”. We think this means  continuing the squeeze on those resisting the move to the cloud! Unfortunately we will see 10% increase in the price of Office and various on-premises editions. Get your upgrades in early!

New IT Support Partner

If you’re thinking about changing your IT support partner, ask yourself these questions first:

  • Does data security come as part of the agreement or is it an add-on?
  • Do they offer third party software support?
  • Do they really understand my business?
  • Will they monitor my network 24/7?
  • Do they talk in jargon or in plain English?
  • Can they save me time and money?

We pride ourselves on putting our customers’ needs first.

So if you’re looking for an IT support partner who can give you all the right answers give us a call.
