Windows Server Support

Some businesses have their own onsite servers to manage the data they process or systems they use to run their business. These need to be monitored and managed to ensure they continue to run efficiently and securely. On occasion they can fail, and you’ll need support to get them back up. The Computer People has a comprehensive Windows Server Support package. If the time is right for you to move to Cloud based servers, we will give you guidance and support to make the move a success.

Email system support

For home users email services are pretty straightforward. Simply register to a service like Google,  Microsoft 365 (Outlook), or use the email supplied by your broadband provider perhaps. But for business, email set up and management can be quite complex, especially if you have a team of employees. For new businesses who may have set themselves up using something like Gmail or Outlook, well, you need that extra credibility using an email address that belongs to your business – not BTinternet, Hotmail or Google for example.

The Computer People can set up, manage and maintain your email systems, making your business run smoothly and professionally. It’s all down to something called DNS…

What our customers say

I took my laptop in because it was running extremely slowly. I was told that they would put a new hard drive in it. They quoted a very reasonable price. After 24 hours, I called for an update. It was still running too slowly and was updating so Dave said he was not happy to let it go yet. He worked on it for a few days, eventually finding that it was my anti-virus software which was causing problems. As my car was off the road, Dave delivered the laptop back to my home at 7am, on way to the office. Brilliant service, good prices and lovely people to deal with. Thank you
