Kiddicare was recently nominated for the 2013 BT IT Retail Awards, we would like to thank Active8 for their ongoing support, they played a huge part in getting us onto this shortlist, well done! John Mack – Kiddicare, IT Support Services Due to ongoing success and organic growth LDA Design Consulting LLP recently engaged with Active 8 IT to provide a new level of IT Service and Support which they had not found in local supplier to date. Initially employing their consultancy team to investigate and present accurate Microsoft based licensing information for us, we were pleasantly surprised at their relaxed and professional approach, not only did they provide unlimited time to research & deliver the information required, they also brought Microsoft representative to our door in order to fully explain the options available to us. The project then expanded in to hardware support, plus we were able to utilise Active 8’s skilled Microsoft, HP & Citrix engineering services, their Gold Status with Microsoft gave us the confidence that Active 8 had the track record and resource to deliver. All have been delivered and managed to a very high degree making our company wide Infrastructure upgrade possible and to run with minimum fuss or disruption. Colin Crawford - LDA Design LLP Just wanted to update you with regards to this job carried out while I was away on holiday. Firstly, I want to personally thank you all for how this call was managed and the lack of input from myself that was required! I’m very happy my holiday was not interrupted to have this sorted out. Secondly, and I think that this is far more important. Phil who was dealing with this issue from our end was very impressed with the service he got and the excellent support you all gave. He said that he wanted to pass on his thanks for making a potentially annoying / stressful situation in to a quick solution. He was very impress with the technical knowledge shown and thought the assistance was ‘top notch’. Big thumbs up chaps (and ladies of course if they were involved!) Having Phil impressed with the service is a big assistance to me internally so Thanks folks!. Colin Mitton - DFA Law
