24/7 pro-active remote monitoring

At Blackwood IT we use advanced software that monitors your entire IT network 24/7. This helps us keep your network healthy by alerting us to possible hardware failures and software issues before they happen. Once an alert has been triggered, we will pro-actively take steps to remedy the issue(s).

We monitor the following aspects of your network:

· Servers
· PCs, Laptops
· Printers
· Operating systems
· Anti-Virus software
· Automated Backup Software
· Hard Drive Health
· External Device Health (USB pen, USB hard drives)
· Security Warnings
· Windows Updates
· Event Log
· Switches / Firewalls and other networking equipment
· Spam detection (both in and outbound)
· Network speed
Computer performance (RAM, CPU, HDD usage, operating temperatures etc.)

Contracted response times

Time is money. If your business is suffering from IT issues staff productivity will be heavily impacted. Our managed IT support customers benefit from fast response times for both remote and onsite support services.

Our target response times are as follows:

· 2 Working hours for remote support
· 4 Working hours for onsite support (distance depending)

This ensures that IT problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently, allowing your staff members to continue working.


(excludes bank holidays).


Unlimited remote & onsite support

Our managed IT support customers have unlimited access to our technical team, Mon-Fri / 9-5 (excludes bank holidays). If you require remote, or onsite support, Blackwood will be there to assist you.

Parts and labour are included

Computer components fail from time to time. These can be costly to replace, and they will usually require a technician to install / configure them.

Our managed IT support customers don’t have to worry about these issues. Parts and labour are included in our service.

Maybe you are purchasing new software and the software company needs to help to integrate into your current systems. We pride ourselves on offering a premium service, we will be there to help.

Far more cost effective than employing an inhouse IT technician

A fully qualified IT technician will expect an annual salary of £30,000.00 – £50,000.00. A managed IT support contract from Blackwood IT will be significantly less than that for small and medium sized businesses. The cost savings are amazing, however there are other (arguably more important) benefits to using our managed IT services too:

· An onsite IT technician will need holidays. We are open 9-5 / Mon-Fri, all year round (excludes bank holidays).

· Our managed IT support customers have access to an entire team of IT & communications specialists, rather than a single person.

We are easy to deal with.

Our contracted customers are assigned a dedicated account manager and a dedicated technician who will both know your network inside and out

We all know how stressful it can be to get in touch with a faceless company. You can get passed around from one department to another, finally to speak to someone you’ve never spoken to before. Our managed IT support customers are assigned a dedicated account manager, and a dedicated technician. We build a strong working relationship with our customers, and we pride ourselves on providing a premium, friendly service.
