  • I would recommend this business

Our business signed up to one of Data's Pay as you go IT contracts last year and we have never looked back. Not only are we getting a great service from these guys but we are also saving a fortune in comparison to what our previous IT contractor charged us before so happy days.

  • I would recommend this business

When it comes to PC/laptop repairs, I experience the same apprehension as I would with that of visiting a garage. I don't know enough about the subject matter to know if I'm being done over or not. They can say whatever they want and my only choice is to nod and smile and try to convey the illusion that I know a little and I understand the nonsense they're throwing at me...!

So I think something can be said for a business that has the honesty to tell you when you're about to waste your money. After my lappie froze up on me, I visited a few repair shops to gauge prices and ideas of what the problem could be.

The first place said it could be one of three problems... the uncertainty and lack of confidence left me wonting.

The second place clearly didn't have a clue as they recommended a complete reboot. Meaning I would lose every file and program from said laptop and have to reinstall everything from scratch (I imagine their motto would be 'if in doubt... reboot!').

Enter DATA Computer Services. After a short discussion about the problem, they offered to take the laptop overnight and have a tinker, free of charge. After that they would call me with their findings and quote me a fix price.

When they called, the problem had been nothing more than a driver that needed re-installed and a hard drive clean up.

And shop #2 wanted to reboot the whole system...! Wow.

So for £40 my lappie is back to his best, and working even faster after the clean up. When I enquired about increasing the hard drive space (getting back to my point!) the sociable staff, rather than quote me a price and offer a turnaround time, instead offered free advice on how to maximise the space I already have, citing an increase as a bad investment. Very impressive.

Worth going a little out your way for honest and efficient service.

Customer Testimonials

We have recently used DATA computer services for all our IT support. As a new business, DATA provided expert advice and support when purchasing our hardware, website design, email hosting – in fact everything. Without their expert guidance we would have wasted valuable time launching our business. DATA has a highly experienced team of technicians who are extremely helpful, consistently polite and patient when dealing with our ongoing questions and queries during our initial set up phase. Their fast, efficient and cost effective service allowed us to set our business up and be operational in a very short period. Exceptional service, sound advice, thank you.

We have recently moved to DATA computer services for all our IT support and have been delighted with the level of service we have received. The advice and support provided has been excellent, and we have been extremely impressed with the timescales to which any issues have been responded to. Everyone we have contact with at DATA is extremely professional and we look forward to building a long lasting relationship with them.

DATA have managed and maintained all of our IT requirements for more than 10 years now and we have always found their service to be first class. Deadlines are consistently met and any changes or upgrades are explained clearly and concisely to those of us with limited IT awareness!

As a new company, we were keen to find a reliable IT service company that could help us both with our inherited IT and future-proofing our move to web based software options. DCS were by far the best in terms of the advice they gave us and the products they recommended. They were able to explain technology in ways we understood and enabled us to make considered choices about what we needed.

They then implemented those choices flawlessly. After using their excellent ad-hoc service for 6 months, we were delighted to retain them as our sole IT company. We have had some complicated issues with our inherited software and hardware but DCS have never failed to resolve them both quickly, effectively and in a way that is specifically tailored our needs. We cannot recommend DCS highly enough and their support to-date has played an invaluable part in establishing our business.

We have used DATA for over 6 years now for all our IT requirements, and are very pleased with the service we have received. They are always on hand whenever we need them and the response time is very quick.
