May 2014 Office 365 Installation with 40-50 users of various types – Ashley Washington – Moneta UK
“Mike’s recently helped us install Office 365 with SharePoint. This project has proceeded both professionally and very smoothly and I highly recommend Mike for his Office 365 skill set”
“It was a relief to have a qualified computer ‘bod’ to rescue our sick processor. After numerous visits to a well known group selling high technical appliances. A quick turnaround repair resulted in our capability to return to work/tasks which was both rewarding and a relief. In addition very cost effective. Thank you Mike, much appreciated”

I contacted Mike one morning with a problem concerning an old PC which was very important with regards me running a CNC machine. Having left the PC I was really pleased to have a phone call early that afternoon saying that my unit was fixed and ready for collection! No production lost! Excellent rates as well, what more do you need! Phil.
Having worked in IT for nearly 30 years there is still a lot to learn especially with regard to Microsoft Office 365. Often new innovations in back-office solutions pass me by as work keeps me too busy to worry about the small things until it becomes a necessity.
I can honestly say that it is rare to find someone in customer support and consultancy that goes the extra mile to engage with a one-person company like myself and most importantly listen to my requirements and gripes. Mike’s attention to detail and tenacity is totally refreshing and he is a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
Called Mike for a problem with a pc. He arrived the same afternoon. He solved the initial problem then found another and gave an honest opinion aboit the cost of repair and whether it was worth it, also advice about retrieving data. Very fair price and excellent service.
I emailed Mike late one evening in a panic, after my trusty business laptop had collapsed. He responded almost immediately, came straight over the next morning, identified what he thought the problem was and what was needed. A few days later, my laptop is safely back with me, working perfectly. Mike went the extra mile in spotting other things that needed fixing and giving me some hints on how to do things easily and more effectively. Great service and great value. Definitely recommended.
