I was introduced to Computer Talk as a reliable re-seller for Ericom Software. I was very impressed with their knowledge of Ericom products and their sound understanding of school IT systems. I chose to work with them to implement a Microsoft Data Protection Manager Backup and Disaster Recovery solution into Sawston Village College to replace our insufficient tape drive system. The new system was installed very quickly and smoothly, and we were up and running with whole system backups within a few days. The system works really well, with no issues or effort. I especially like that Computertalk are happy to offer the level of support to suit the customer, providing our preferred minimal support and training to our in-house support team to continue with the support after the system has been installed. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future to implement the next stage of our IT development plan for server virtualization. I have every confidence that the system will be a success with their involvement and we will no doubt work with them on more projects in the future.

I have had the pleasure of working with Computer Talk since I joined Woodford County High School in October 2006. We have an excellent working relationship with Liam O’Mahony Director, Richard Jamieson our account manager, the technical support engineers and the installation staff at Computer Talk.
Liam has provided us with superb technical advice and recommendations over the years and all projects have been undertaken in a professional and courteous manor, on time and on budget. Their technicians have excellent technical knowledge, and are able to work with people at all levels. They respond to queries and or faults quickly and efficiently and they continue to provide us with excellent technical support. I would highly recommend Computer Talk without hesitation.

We have an excellent working relationship with Liam O’Mahony Director, Richard Jamieson our account manager, the technical support engineers and the installation staff at Computer Talk.Over the last five years they have been involved in a large number of projects with us. I.e. the Virtualisation of all our servers, improved backup solutions, etc, and last year the installation of additional structured cabling throughout the school. This enabled us to install IP telephony and plan for future IT equipment to be rolled out around the school.

We have worked with Computertalk for over 10 years and they have been professional, supportive and effective in enabling us to develop our ICT provision and practice. They provide excellent customer care with a friendly and efficient voice at the end of the phone. Staff are sent promptly to sort out problems and they are professional, polite, helpful and efficient when on site. Computertalk have provided expert advice on ways forward and have taken the time to really get to know our ICT requirements . They provided very good training when our Smart boards were installed and have been supportive in all our new ICT initiatives and directions taken. Computertalk have played a very big part in the success of ICT at Cleveland Infant School and working with them has brought so many positives for us.

We have been working with Computertalk for just over a year now; we have been really impressed with their service and have just renewed our contract with them. They were happy to take over our existing system, with a few initial alterations and support us with this network. They wrote an excellent report about the current system and gave suggestions and options to improve and upgrade our network. What we have really appreciated are the various options that have been presented to us, with pros and cons discussed, as well as different pricing options, being considered. There has never been ‘a pushy sales pitch’, they have always listened to our needs and given us advice and choices based on those needs, as well as introducing us to services and products we had never heard of!
We have always had a very prompt and professional service from all of the staff at Computertalk, with staff willing to take the time to talk us through strategies, or coming into school, to find solutions to problems and even being very patient with us when the solutions were very simple! We now have a system that runs very effectively, with school staff so impressed by the speed of the network and the reliability of the equipment, but most of all, having ‘remote access’ and being able to work from home.
Thanks to everyone at Computertalk for such an excellent service.

As a fairly new company we were nervous on choosing a partner for our IT equipment as it was imperative we got it right, first time.We initially approached 5 IT companies to undertake the work including Computer Talk as they were a local well established company. Andrew’s team were professional and knowledgeable taking time to understand what we looking to do as a business and recommending the most cost effective way of achieving it. We also gave them a very tight installation program for the new offices and they pulled out all the stops to ensure we were up and running on time. The project completed on time, on budget and with no major issues. The installtions team where a pleasure to be around and it gives me great pleasure to recommend, Andrew, his team and all at ComputerTalk.

Sacred Heart of Marys Girls School have been using Computer Talk since July 2009 for the installation of Desktops and Servers as well as related Internet/e-mail/operating software/network maintenance and support throughout the school. Initially, they integrated our separate Admin and Curriculum systems and over the years we have continued to use their services. We had used a number of different companies over the years for such services but have been very impressed with the industry knowledge, customer service as well as value-for-money provided by Computer Talk

I just wanted to let you know how amazing Steve and Gary were this weekend. They worked non-stop to ensure that all works were carried out - even with the issue over the data cable, they worked out the solution without any drama.
When you walk into the hall now you would not know how hard the boys worked as it has been left in perfect order. Even when we took the decision to call it a day last night and come back this morning to finish they ensured that everything worked and was ready for tomorrow's meeting. At all times they were very professional. Another great job by ComputerTalk.

Firstly can i please say what a fantastic service we have received from Computer talk. I am so glad we went with you in the end, James was amazing doing the build and the set up, he never turned anyone away who had a question or problem - even to the point he helped one of the teachers reinstall her home printer on her rebuilt laptop and then even carried it out to her car! He even quietly put up with me and all of my queries!
Caroline and I have been very grateful to all of the support technicians who have answered our silly questions whilst we still get used to the new system and the start of the new term. Steve at Support has been really fantastic sorting us out with technicians when we need them - so thank you. It has been the best money the school has spent for a very long time.
Thanks once again. I would highly recommend you and the company to others.

Another school recommended Computertalk to us as we were looking to invest in ICT...and what a good recommendation it was! Over the past year the staff at Computertalk have assisted us in upgrading our ICT infrastructure, including the installation of wireless, interactive projectors across the school, a new server and migrating the whole school to Windoiws 7 and Office 2010 They have done a fantastic job and offered excellent, tailored advice and support along the way. All the staff, from management through to the technicians, have been knowledgeable, helpful, pro-active and patient. Emails are replied to promptly and there has been no waiting around at any stage in the process. Having bought in to their hands-on support package, we continue to work with Computertalk and find their fortnightly visits and the remote service they offer excellent. Their paperwork is thorough, from the detailed quotes to the log of work completed on each visit. We look forward to working with them on our continuing journey of ICT in our school.
