What do our clients say?

System Six Kitchens Ltd
are a family owned and run business based in the South West. Founded by Trevor Foster in 1975, System Six has been manufacturing and fitting kitchens for over 30 years.

System Six Kitchens Ltd logo“FIRST4TECH, or 'the 5th emergency service' as they are known at System Six Kitchens, have transformed our business. Prior to finding FIRST4TECH we used several local 'IT specialists'. Not one of them had the knowledge, enthusiasm and sheer determination of FIRST4TECH. PC and network issues were severely restricting our growth. Jamie and Dan came along for an informal meeting, assessed our situation, came up with some hardware changes and mapped out a reasonable service plan. Almost immediately our IT problems were a thing of the past and as far as ongoing support is concerned, nothing is too much trouble. I would happily recommend FIRST4TECH to anyone.”

Dart Rock Climbing Centre
was opened in 2009, with the aim of offering the best quality indoor climbing experience for everyone from complete beginners to seasoned climbers and everyone in between.

“As a leisure activity, we didn’t believe IT would prove to be such an integral part of our daily operations. But not long after we opened Dart Rock, we realised how very important IT was for ensuring customer records were maintained properly to ensure the best possible customer service, as well as being able to use information for marketing and improvements in our services. It wasn’t long before our piecemeal systems started letting us down, and we knew we needed help. FIRST4TECH understood our needs as a growing business, and were considerate of providing exactly what we needed at a price we could afford – with the flexibility to grow our systems as our business does. Knowing help is a key stroke away takes a huge worry out of our everyday operations, letting us focus on making Dart Rock Climbing Centre the best indoor rock climbing experience for all our customers.

We look forward to working alongside FIRST4TECH for our future planned IT projects as well as working with them for our everyday support.”

fwdesign limited
are a design studio in London, comprising of 15 staff with 20 Macs and 1 Exchange Server.

fw design logo“The server was historically maintained by the IT Manager of our sister company in Exeter. Due to a recent change in the company structure we no longer have his support. This was a very worrying thought; we have no in-house Microsoft Exchange expertise and we didn’t think we would be able to buy in the support we needed. We actually contemplated installing in a Mac server. Then we met FIRST4TECH. We were completely straight with them “the Exchange Server scares us, and we won’t understand what you’re talking about if something goes wrong”. They calmed us down and suggested we increase the server storage and assured us the server would be fine for at least another year. They made the necessary changes, did some fine tuning to Share Points. Mailboxes etc and the server is doing exactly what we want. The upgrade was scheduled around our workflow and was incredibly painless.”FIRST4TECH obviously have vast knowledge and many years of experience. The engineers are down-to-earth and extremely helpful; they understand that we’re not that fascinated with the technology, we just want it to work. We’re delighted they’re on our team."

With over 40 years experience Wood&Wood provide a complete service from site surveys through manufacture to installation and maintenance. By focusing on quality at each stage of the process we ensure that our clients aspirations are met from start to finish.

Wood & Wood Signs logo“During 2006/7 the company's sales force grew substantially and I identified the need for a robust platform for remote users in the office and at home, to logon to, in order to be able to use a new CRM software package being rolled out across the sales force and also give them access to a full Microsoft Outlook client. With FIRST4TECH’s specialist knowledge in this area, they proposed a solution to implement additional server hardware running Microsoft Terminal Services alongside a SQL Server 2005 server, which was to run the new Sales CRM package. Throughout the whole process, from hardware and software specification, server build and configuration, to installation and integration into Wood&Wood's current infrastructure, FIRST4TECH have proved themselves to be very professional, skilled and adaptive to our needs. They have the ability to think 'out of the box' and can suggest and tailor solutions, which fit the company's current and future needs. They also look after maintenance of our servers and give a very rapid response, which is second to none.”

Iscavia Ltd

“We had previously operated our IT support under the umbrella of a parent company. We were therefore very nervous about going out into the big wide world for IT support. However FIRST4TECH have provided an easy transition with better quality and faster support than we had previously. They don’t even embarrass you when the problem is self-induced. We can’t recommend them highly enough.

Simon Chance, Director, Iscavia Ltd -
