Active Maintenance

Oxford-based managed IT services on a fixed-price monthly contract. 

What is Active Maintenace?

Active Maintenance is ideal for businesses without in-house IT expertise, providing IT support on a fixed-price monthly contract, giving you the peace of mind that your IT is running efficiently in the hands of the experts, while you focus on growing your business and keeping costs under control.

How it works

Our Managed IT service offers you all the benefits of an internal IT department without the associated costs. At a fixed monthly cost, capped to your requirements throughout the contract, we’ll take on full responsibility for your IT and network performance. This might be day-to-day IT support, remote monitoring of your server performance or the full design, purchasing and installation of all your hardware.

Any extra work such as additional hardware or changes to your network will be carried out and quoted in advance before we go ahead.
