Managed I.T.

Also referred to as ‘outsourced I.T. department’ or 'maintenance contract', we will look after your server, desktop computers, security, data back-up, recovery and more, leaving you to focus on other areas of your business.

Many companies choose to outsource their I.T., either because there is no I.T. expertise in-house or the demands of the I.T. infrastructure require additional support.

Low monthly fixed fee contracts

There are no hidden costs or extras with our price plan; you pay a fixed fee each month.

Remote log-in

With DC Services managing your I.T., you benefit from remote monitoring and diagnostics, which means that we can log into your system and rectify the majority of problems that occur without the need for an on-site engineer, giving you a quicker fix and less downtime. These problems can also be corrected out of hours if necessary to reduce disruption. If the nature of the problem requires a call out we will have you back up and running as soon as possible.

Proactive support

Many errors that occur within an I.T. infrastructure can be avoided through preventative monitoring. At DC Services, we can provide you with a proactive support service whereby we provide routine checks and 24/7 monitoring to give you faster system performance and to safeguard you from downtime.

Security guaranteed

I.T. security has become more important for smaller companies as they are often an easier target with less I.T. security in place to prevent attacks. We specialise in managing the IT security of small to medium sized companies and make sure your data and applications are protected.

We utilise the very latest I.T. security tools to guarantee that your business is protected from a security threat. Our security solution includes:

  • Patch management
  • Managed anti-virus
  • Managed anti-spyware
  • Managed Firewall
  • Managed anti-spam
  • Managed internet browser control

On –site support
