Featured Case Study:

Tower College

Over the 2017 summer holidays we were instructed to revamp Tower College’s IT infrastructure.

Our IT engineers Ashley Proctor and Will Briggs did a fantastic job, the Merseyside based private school now boasts:

30 brand new computers in the Senior IT suite
  • A new Resource Room in the Jubilee Building with 25 computers and a fully stocked library
  • 20 new IP security cameras
  • A new IP phone system
  • Total-site wireless coverage
  • A new server with Smoothwall Content Filtering for internet safety

“Couldn’t be happier.”

Marcus Taylor, Taylor College

“Over the last ten years we have contracted out our IT provision to 5 companies; you are the sixth! Unfortunately, none of them lived up to their early promise and in fact became more of a liability for the school rather than an agent of support. Given this history, I must confess that when we signed with Apex, I was sceptical about your ability to deliver the level of service that Tower College both expects and requires.

I just thought I’d give you a quick update on how things are going with Apex … It couldn’t be better. We have now been with you for nearly a year and despite the early teething problems with the reconfiguration of ‘Smoothwall’ (which not incidentally was an inherited problem from our previous IT provider), we really couldn’t be happier. And, now with the introduction of ‘FreshDesk’, the level of support to all our staff is at a whole new level.

All members of the Apex team that have been assigned to us have been outstanding and a pleasure to deal with. Will, in particular, has gone well beyond his remit in helping make things right for us. At every stage, he has checked and double checked that things are right with us. ”

"He has implemented a good number of new systems which have made a huge difference to the easier running of our school and he is always looking for ways in which we can improve our IT provision to the staff and pupils. We consider ourselves very lucky to have such a perfectionist and professionally minded person on our site.

Nothing has phased your team and they have moved so unbelievably quickly on every request made of them. I haven’t had one complaint or moan from any member of our staff and that’s saying something. It’s a great feeling to know that Apex are looking after us.

If you would like to use our site as a testimonial to any of your prospective clients, you are most welcome to bring anyone around. Similarly, if you ever require a written reference or verbal testimonial over the phone to a prospective client – give ‘em to me!

I’m so, so glad that we came with you as everything you said would happen has happened. It has been, from the very first time we met, an absolute pleasure to do business. If only all our arrangements with suppliers were as it is with you."

What our customers say about Apex Computing

  • Paul Rebbitt, Park Hose

    As a small business, we have tried to concentrate on giving service to our customers rather than spending too much time getting a proper computer system infrastructure to cope with increasing work. As a result, we suffered, and Apex Computing came to our rescue going beyond expectations by trying to sort our existing problem before offering a full solution. I thoroughly recommend them.

  • Embryo Digital, embryodigital.co.uk

    Apex Computing is a fantastic IT Support company with great people and client service. We are in regular contact with them and have never had a bad experience. We value their knowledge here at Embryo Digital and they support us with any IT issues we have with incredible care and attention.

  • Tarik Saleem, The Linen Group

    As with moving to any new supplier, there is always a nervous feeling. Business continuity is paramount. All of our inventory is RFID tagged, so if our IT systems stop, so does our production. Our customers are not interested in IT problems, they need large volumes of linen for their daily operations. We needed IT Support that understood our business. We made the right choice moving to Apex. Apex are proactive, efficient and show great understanding.

  • David Busby, Around Town Flats

    After consulting other competitors on the market, we were blown away by Apex Computing. They understood our needs, offered a personal service and to date have performed exceptionally. I really can't recommend them enough.

  • Steve Foster, Kingdom Services Group

    Our company has grown considerably since Apex Computing first started to support us in 2009 and they have been pivotal in making sure our IT infrastructure has been able to support this growth. Our company operates 24/7 and monitors over 25,000 manned guards. Apex Computing has always responded quickly to solve any problems and never failed to answer the phone at any time.

  • Matthew Wilkinson, Pyranha Kayaks

    As soon as we joined Apex Computing, we immediately noticed a sharp increase in the number of IT Support calls we were making; not because of any increase in the number of IT issues we were experiencing, but simply due to the fact that we knew any issues we might have would be fixed promptly and efficiently, and therefore had no inhibitions in calling on Apex Computing for help.

  • Shirley Devine, Manchester Carers

    We have continued to get excellent service and support from Apex Computing Services. With Manchester Carers being a local independent charity, we rely on an honest, trustworthy and innovative IT Support company. We are really happy with the service we have received over the years and we value their IT knowledge and expertise. They take corporate social responsibility really seriously.
