We can work closely with your business to understand your needs and recommend solutions to improve your IT systems, reduce costs, increase productivity and improve overall performance.

    Dean Appleton-Claydon, We Create Digital

    In the 8 years I’ve worked with Plan IT Support, I’ve not once had an IT issue (personally or professionally) that they’ve not been able to resolve. They are quite simply, brilliant! They’re on hand when you need then, respond quickly, are friendly, trustworthy and professional. I can’t recommend them enough.

    Karina Urquhart, BIC

    I think that switching our IT support over to you was one of the best business decisions Shearwater has made – it’s so refreshing not only to get a reply to queries so quickly but also to have you so willing to help out with even the little things.

    Louise Longworth, Shearwater BAC Ltd

    I would recommend Plan IT to any business looking for a friendly and reliable IT service from very knowledgeable people. The service they have provided is second to none, even going as far as resolving technical issues outside of business hours within minutes. Their response time is swift, and their advice is competent and refreshingly clear.

    Mike Topping, A Plus Security

    We really weren’t aware just how much the company would come to depend on video meetings and remote working until the effects of 2020 hit. The work Plan IT did with us before and during the pandemic to get us into the cloud has been instrumental in keeping our business working smoothly, despite everything.

    Peter Gaynor, Cilantro Engineering UK Ltd

    As a start-up, Plan IT have helped guide us with the full knowledge of what we need to do at the start, and how we need to build and develop as we grow. Their service is fantastic and they are always quick to respond and help in any way they can. We would highly recommend them to any organisation.

    Ruth Robinson, MeteorWrite

    You have always provided us with an amazingly fast and efficient service at a very reasonable cost, going about your work in a very approachable and polite manner. It makes a huge difference and gives us a great sense of security to know that you guys are always on call and available to work through issues that come up.

    Tom Lacey, Lacey & Saltikov Architects

    Plan IT Support are a jargon-free breath of fresh air. They provide swift and effective solutions for all our needs in the fast moving world of information technology. I highly recommend them to businesses large and small.
