Choose a company that values client relations. We know that sometimes directors are too busy to call us. We also know that sometimes staff keep quiet about any support issues they may have, only letting their directors know once they have escalated. It is for this reason all of our clients have their own dedicated account manager that will visit you for regular reviews in the view of preventing potential fires before the fire alarm has even sounded.
Your account manager will visit you at least once a year to discuss your IT infrastructure, your budget, any outstanding issues and any plans you may have in the next 12 months that will require our input. These reviews are totally free of charge.
We constantly invest in new products that benefit your business. These are introduced to you via the annual meetings, our newsletters or simple mailshot.

When Carden IT was formed in 2008 our founders not only had a shared love of technology. They also believed in their ability to harness it to help businesses succeed.
“When we started the company we had a clear vision of what we wanted to achieve and a determination to make that vision reality,” says co-founder Dave King. “For us it was never purely about technology, it was about using technology to improve our clients’ businesses.”
As news of our expertise spread by word of mouth, the company rapidly grew and branched out in to telecommunications. “Telecoms were a natural addition to our offering,” explains Dave’s fellow co-founder Jeremy Huson, “because VoIP solutions overlap with IT.” However, client demand soon meant the company was installing, managing and maintaining traditional in-house telecoms systems too. Now our VoIP solutions are used in many call centres nationwide.
While the company has grown and diversified, our mission remains the same – to help client prosper by keeping them at the forefront of technology “We have lost none of our ambition, which means we’re constantly evolving,” says Dave, “but our basic approach of always offering the highest level of personal service will never change, because it’s been the key to gaining our impressive client list.” “There’s no magic formula for success,” Jeremy agrees, “we just make sure that all our clients, whether SMEs or large companies, can clearly see that the IT and telecom solutions we provide not only work but are effective in helping them achieve their business goals.”
One thing that tends to put many businesses off is the potential complexity of migrating to Office 365. This is a lot easier than many think and can be completed without impacting on the day to day running of your company. If you want greater flexibility, a system that grows with your business and which all your staff can use wherever they are in the world, now is the time to change.
The recent wannacry ransomware hack shocked everyone by its sheer size and global impact. It did not, however, come as too much of a surprise to those who work in the online security business. Organisations across the world including Disney, Telifonica and the National Health Service were affected as well as thousands of personal devices from Russia to the USA.
That bottom line is important for all businesses, especially in those early days when transforming from hopeful start-up to successful company. If you are a small business or medium size business, keeping those IT costs under control is also vital. But that doesn’t mean you need to skimp on the quality. There are better ways to get the IT solutions package you need without burning a big hole in your bank balance.
If you haven't saved budget & outsourced your IT Services yet, here's 10 great reasons why you should. The world of IT support continues to go from strength to strength. Accessibility has been one of the major innovations in recent years. It’s no longer necessary to employ experienced and qualified technical staff on site and pay them a large salary. Businesses can access third party IT that delivers the security and flexibility they really need.
Choosing an IT and telecoms partner for your business is a big decision – one of the most important you’ll make. There are plenty of willing suppliers out there, so why choose Carden IT Services?
We love technology in all its many forms, but our real passion is business. We know what companies need to succeed because we’ve grown fast ourselves, and we know how critical technology is to success. Most importantly, we’re experts at identifying and implementing the right technological solutions for your business, to help it achieve your ambitions.
We have strong relationships with major suppliers like Dell and HP, but real value isn’t only about price, it’s about the quality of service that you get for your money. Our services are all about improving your bottom line, so the question you should ask is not ‘Can we afford them?’ but ‘Can we afford to do without them?’
Well in fact we’re bilingual – we can talk ‘tech’ if you like, but if you prefer your IT conversations to be jargon-free, we’re fluent in plain English too. More than that, we pride ourselves on clear communication, so when you work with us you’ll know exactly what you’re getting and why, whatever your chosen language.
Are you wary of being tied in to 12-month service contracts? Well have no fear, because we offer rolling monthly services for IT support. We have other payment options too, including pay-as-you-go and pre-paid service blocks that have no expiry date.
Call our helpline and you won’t be connected to a distant voice that has no clue about your business. Instead you’ll speak to a knowledgeable expert in one of our offices who knows what they’re taking about. And, if they can’t fix the problem, we’ll do a site visit. To find out more about how Carden IT services can help your businesses, call us now on 01273 552059 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
