Tech Support

In September 2010 we started a pilot scheme to provide technical support between the hours of 09:00-13:00 on Saturdays.

We have been carefully monitoring this service and have identified that we have helped many different customers from a variety of companies over the last 5 months. We have therefore committed to continue this additional customer support service throughout 2011.

From February 19th 2011 our new Saturday Technical Support hours will be from 08:00 to 12:00.

Saturday technical support will be available on our normal office number (+44(0)1322 222121) or by e-mail
