Rapidly growing Architectural business requires rapid IT upgrade: 

“Recently we went through a period of rapid growth within our architectural practice. 

We realised that our computer systems were fragmented, with less than desirable back up, a lack of security and poor network connectivity. 

To solve this problem, we reached out to Andrew at @Computers. Andrew was able to review the alternatives available to us, research the best options, and come up with a variety of solutions for us.

The solution that we decided upon was a cloud based system using Microsoft One Drive. 

At a really busy time, @Computers made this transition from our old outdated system, to our new system, absolutely seamless.

 @Computer provided consistent back up, and quick and efficient service for any queries during this shift. 

Our new I.T system has meant that we can now access all of our information, whether we are out with a client, working from home, or in the office. 

It is a great feeling knowing that all of our data is completely secure and safe, and that our systems are now all integrated and updated”

Disjointed Network streamlined with @Computer

“We were experiencing problems with a disjointed network, outdated technology being used within the association, (both hardware and software), as well as a mixed level of service.

 During a very difficult time, Andrew and the team assisted with a huge stocktake of current systems. They developed a rollout process of new hardware as well as upskilling and supporting staff with the implementation of Microsoft 365.

@Computer were always available to problem solve and suggest solutions that fitted with our particular organisation.

We are now much more streamlined with our processes and have just one point of contact for all of our sites.

Having a consistent service throughout our organisation means that we can now provide top-notch service to our kindergartens.

@Computer are very prompt with their support and proactive in their approach. We would absolutely recommend them 100%!”

 

The Northland Kindergarten Association has 25 wonderful kindergartens each with a unique character and feel that mirror the community and environment in which they are situated.

If my computers aren’t working my business isn’t functioning!

Our business relies on our computers running smoothly. If they don’t then we are unable to work.

When we have had problems we have been able to call Andrew and Max at @Computers.

Every time that we have asked for their help they have responded promptly, called at our office when necessary, and made sure that we are back to working at full capacity.

The reassuring thing is that we know that reliable help is just a phone call away and that they are just around the corner.

Some of the key areas that @Computers look after for us:

  • Deployed Cloud managed Antivirus software, making our data safe and secure.
  • Andrew sourced, at our specific request, HP desktops and laptops. When these haven’t been available in NZ due to Covid 19 supply issues, Andrew recommended and sourced a very good alternative. When the computers arrive Max sets them up for us.
  • Office 365 was installed and subscriptions were created. These replaced our older Office licenses that were not transferable to new PCs.
  • Andrew keeps us regularly informed of the latest developments and scams

Andrew also freely offers advice and recommendations on the best IT practice for business in an IT world where the only real constant is change.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andrew and the team at @Computer.

They’re the sort of company that keeps communities working.”
