The IT Dept was set up by Michael Donkin in June 2008, just
as the Credit Crunch hit the UK! Michael had been working as Group Head of IT for a national company,
but became disillusioned at losing contact with the "coal face" - if working in a technological
industry can ever be described as such.
Keen to return to his roots of real IT work, as well as welcoming the opportunity to offer some great customer service, he was tempted into running his own business - and has never looked back!
As a locally focussed company, The IT Dept uses the services of other Lancashire businesses wherever possible, such as Right Direction Marketing for SEO Consultancy.
Most People Dislike Their Computers
They find them frustrating to deal with, they don't
understand them and they often wish to throw them out of the window.
(This is, of course, why Microsoft called their operating system "Windows"!)
Most people also dislike their computer support company - for all of the same reasons.
We love I.T. and we offer plain and simple I.T. support, without the jargon.
We will give you the solutions - we won't try to explain the problems.
I.T. is not a necessary evil - it is a vital part of your
business - and you need the right partner to make your computer systems as efficient as possible - at
the best possible value.
Our ethos is to ensure that your computer network works for your business, and to help your company to grow with the support of your I.T. infrastructure, not in spite of it.
From one-off call-outs to Monthly Support Contracts, we cover all of your business computer requirements, as your very own out-sourced IT Dept.
