am happy to confirm that the service we have received from iQuda has been excellent.

TESTIMONIAL 2

“I am writing to recommend the services of iQuda Ltd, which has provided a managed IT support service to the Hospice since October 2011. Services provided include network monitoring and management, offsite disaster recovery and backups, maintenance of antivirus protection and full site maintenance. iQuda also provides a private leased broadband line. In addition, iQuda has undertaken several IT projects for the Hospice, including overseeing the cabling of the offices. 

In 2011, the IT infrastructure at the Hospice was unreliable. We currently have a strong and stable IT network, using up to date technology, and this improvement has been brought about by iQuda helping us to plan for our needs and advising on investment.

We are satisfied with the service provided by iQuda. The helpdesk is responsive and normally resolves issues quickly and efficiently. When issues cannot be resolved quickly, there is an effective escalation procedure. I personally also appreciate the direct contact I have with iQuda’s senior staff, who are willing to be contacted, and to provide advice on a range of IT issues and concerns. 

I am happy to recommend the services of iQuda.”

TESTIMONIAL 3

“We have been using iQuda for all our IT support since November 2011. We have a fully managed IT support contract with them which includes:

  • Proactively monitoring our computer hardware and software remotely.
  • Fault fixing either remotely or onsite (if necessary and all part of the contract). We have had one failure that necessitated onsite presence and they had us up and running in approximately 1.5 hours.
  • Providing technical support for all staff working both from these premises and our 13 retail locations.
  • We are increasingly using them to supply all our hardware requirements and for software upgrades as they come up.

I can happy say that we are very happy with the service we receive from iQuda. They send me a weekly update of outstanding issues and these are normally dealt with in a timely manner. I would recommend them as an IT support provider.”
