Microsoft Office 365 & Teams

We achieved Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency at SILVER level with Microsoft back in February 2016, and have been building our expertise and skill set ever since.  We now manage over 160 Microsoft 365 tenants with global admin status.

What is 365?

Microsoft 365 is the productivity cloud that brings together best-in-class Office apps with powerful cloud services, device management, and advanced security.  Including email and cloud storage.

Exchange mail

Best in class, business grade email, with massive amounts of storage, distribution list management, shared mailstores and mail, contact, calendar & task synchronisation across multiple devices. 

Onedrive

Cloud storage that not only enables a direct duplicate of your data in a safe place as you work, but also facilitates group data sharing and sync between multiple systems, even your mobile.

Teams

Teams, with video and voice, works across desktop, laptop, mobile, mac or PC, it’s not complicated, it just works.  A new approach to collaborative work.

Custom Builds

We provide custom builds for when off-the-shelf just won’t do!

A custom built PC is very personal, and often outperforms anything you’d normally buy in a retail store.
Our approach to a custom build starts with the end users top three applications, and then works backwards from aesthetics through ergonomics to system location.

Designer cases

PC cases range from a basic £20 to, the sky is the limit.  Recent builds have seen cases in the £150 to £200 bracket.  One recent example was a slim titanium case with a walnut top, very eloquent. 

Custom storage

We utilise Western Digital PCIe NVMe & SSD drives in most systems, from 250Gb upwards, as well as traditional drives.  Our biggest build so far in 2020 had over 20TB of storage in it including Blue, Black and Red drives.

Designer cases

The latest 9th and 10th generation Intel Processors are incredibly fast.  The latest i3 quad core CPU has more than enough power for most business applications, and the new i5 6 core CPU’s make gaming incredible.

Network

Networking

From complex multi-cabinet, Cat6e wired networks, to meshed wifi networks, our network skill set covers the lot.   We stock hardware from many of the top manufacturers including ZyXEL, TP-Link, Tenda and many more.  We stock WiFI adapters, network switches, POE equipment, aerials, cables (a lot of cables, typically over 1000 at any time), and even VoIP handsets.  When an emergency breaks we never know what will be required, so far safer to have everything to hand.

Web Design & Development

We have the capabilities and skill to put together professional websites fast.  Our fastest site build, 6 pages, from start to finish was under an 20 minutes. 

Creating a website doesn’t have to be complicated.  

We run our own webhosting account with a very well established UK provider, and manage webspace for many of our clients.  Hosting doesn’t have to be expensive, our average hosting bill for our clients is £60 per annum plus VAT.

Issues with outlook crashing - had many calls this afternoon about it. Have tested a fix as follows :

How to fix the Microsoft Outlook crashes
If Microsoft Outlook is crashing for you, you can resolve the issue by rolling back to a previous version of Microsoft Outlook.

To roll back and fixes the Microsoft Outlook crashes, please follow these steps:

Open a command prompt by clicking on the Start Menu and typing CMD. When the 'Command Prompt' result appears, click on it.

In the command prompt type :
cd "\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ClickToRun"

and press enter.

You will now be in the ClickToRun folder. Type :

officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.12827.20470

and press enter.
Microsoft Office will be rolled back to the previous version and you should be able to run Microsoft Outlook again.

You can now close the Command Prompt by clicking on the X button.

If this does not work, please leave a comment.

This is a developing story.

Lots of interest in builds right now, families investing in new BIG computer builds instead of holidays would be my guess. Lovely guy earlier working through the PC Builder on our website and cherry picking components to build a system, which led me think, there must be a better way of explaining what goes into a PC. So here goes, in simple speak, what goes into a gaming rig!.

1. Case (the box everything goes in)
2. Power Supply (PSU) (fuel tank), at least 650W.
3. Motherboard (the chassis)
4. CPU (the engine)
5. Memory (the more the better, at least 8Gb, preferably 16Gb or 32GB)
6. GPU (graphics card, for gaming, the faster the better, but fast also means hot, so cooling and case has to reflect choice)
7. Storage (Solid State Drive, Hard Drive or a combination of both)
8. CPU Cooler (got to keep that engine cool, akin to a radiator)
9. Operating System (the software that allows you to surf the net and play games)
10. Optionally, things like wireless NIC (WiFi) Network Interface Card), DVD Drive.

Quick stock update, as we ran out of so many things over the past two weeks. Wireless keyboards and mice are back in stock, headsets (for zoom/skype etc), back in stock, webcams, still waiting. Also managed to secure a hand full of multifunctional mono laser printers at £17 a unit less than Amazon, £140 inc vat, delivered anywhere in Crowthorne.

COVID-19 safe practices ramped up even more now, if dropping off at workshop for repair/upgrade, be prepared to wait outside for a min whilst we prepare for you, Our preference is to deliver repairs back to you at the end of the day, again, from a safe distance, and all equipment is cleaned with pure alcohol before we bag for delivery.

If you're worried at all, please do call. We've handled over 20 tech support calls today, none of which we have billed for. Most calls only take a couple of mins, and we'd rather you don't struggle with your tech, just get the answers and crack on enjoying lockdown.

Shortage of UK Laptops. In the past few months we've had a regular supply of decent i5 business grade, very fast Lenovo laptops at £395 + VAT per unit, the market has gone mad, we're out of stock and the current trade cost on these is now nearly £700 + VAT. We've had many parents and people who need to work at home contact us looking for something, but there is nothing in UK stock which offers a reasonable cost and performance. Today we manage to secure a dozen decent units from one of our German suppliers, they will take a few days to arrive, and will cost £439 + VAT (optional setup £60 + VAT).

Intel® Core™ i3-8130U Processor (4M Cache, up to 3.40 GHz)
Windows 10 Home
Diagonal size 15.6"
1920 x 1080 pixels Display resolution
Display type LED - non glare
4 GB Internal memory
Intel HD Graphics 620
HDD capacity 240 GB

We've already had two reservations today, if we see a high demand we'll try to secure more. Personally suspect if Germany goes on lock-down the pricing will soar as it has here.

Please keep healthy folk, cheers, Si.
