Computer Support Services

Computer and Server support for business in Lancashire The IT Dept offers a wide range of Computer Support Services to businesses throughout Lancashire, concentrated around Preston, Chorley, Blackburn, Darwen, Bolton, Clitheroe, etc.

Our aim is to ensure that your IT Systems enhance your business and promote business growth. We strive to give you peace of mind and to remove the headaches that computers can bring to small businesses.

By leaving us to worry about your IT services, and to proactively reduce any issues, you are free to carry on doing what you do best.

The Services we offer include:


On-Site Support Contracts

With a monthly on-site support contract one of our engineers will visit your site to carry out essential, preventative maintenance of your IT Systems every month. This is similar to servicing of a car as regular, planned maintenance will reduce sudden downtime and increase the life of the computers. This is especially useful for clients with Servers, or for those with more than 5 PCs.
Remote Support Contracts

For smaller businesses, with 5 PCs or less, a Remote Support Contract offers exceptionally good value for money. We are able to support your computers remotely from our own offices (provided that your internet connection is working). You may make as many remote support calls as you wish. Should we be unable to solve the issue remotely and we must come to you then you are charged at a preferential hourly rate, with no Call-Out charges.
Hardware Sales

We are able to supply all types of computer hardware at very competitive prices. This includes servers, desktop computers, laptops, printers, routers and networking components. We only supply robust business-capable computers and peripherals to ensure the best possible value for money. If you wish to provide your own hardware for us to install, then we will advise on the best equipment to buy and where to get it from.
Software Sales

We can source all computer software at great prices, such as Microsoft Office, Windows operating systems for Servers or PCs, anti-virus programmes (we recommend BitDefender), anti-spam, CRM Solutions, SharePoint, etc. Again we are happy to advise on your best option if you wish to purchase your own software for us to install.
Online Data Backup

Our robust Online Data Backup Systems are securely encrypted, fast and responsive. You will receive an email each day to inform you of the success or otherwise of the backup (if scheduled), to keep you fully informed. The Backup software works on Servers, PCs or Macs.
Domain Hosting

Our Domain Hosting services are second to none and come with full support. This even includes setting up your email programme for you with the correct account details! Most domain hosting companies will happily sell you the domain and hosting, then expect you to set everything up. We understand that this isn't what you wish to be spending your time doing - so we include that service within the overall price. Domain hosting prices start at just £99.00 (+ VAT) per year.
Web Site Design

We have a team of web designers who will ensure that you get the website that you want and deserve. A full design brief can be undertaken with web sites ranging from simple "brochure" sites to full-blown e-commerce sites. We can also give a full Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) service.
Remote Support

If you have an urgent problem to solve, but you are not yet a client of The IT Dept, then we can offer Remote Support on a one-off basis. This is an exceptionally popular service for clients who do not need a full Support Contract, but who do require occasional support. At only £25.00 (+ VAT) per 20 minute call this is great value for money.
