The Computer People was formed following a merger of services between The Computer Lady (Alison Gordon) and Red Boot Tech Services (Dave Turnbull).

In order to take a well-earned holiday in 2019, Alison asked Dave to look after her clients while she was away. On her return, she discovered Dave had done an amazing job, and Dave had enjoyed it too. They decided to join forces and become The Computer People.

The company has since grown considerably, and they now have a team of 6, plus a large workshop to enable them better serve new and existing customers.

Between them, Alison and Dave have over 60 years’ experience. They have brought together a loyal client base and have established trusted relationships across the community.

What our customers say

Computer and IT companies often don't have the best of reputation. They seem to charge a lot for something we do not know a lot about.

Imagine my surprise when asking for the best laptop for the work I do - I was asked what laptop I had! Why? Because they suggested swapping the existing disk drive for an SSD drive and an upgrade of the RAM.

Not only did it save me a lot of money - it was all done within the day!

At the same time they found that the laptop battery had started to 'bubble' - never knew they would or could, but they showed me...The new battery is now on order.

Oodles of money and much time saved - and no redundant laptop either
