Working from another location

More and more businesses are reaping the benefits of remote working, with workers travelling on business, small branch offices or partners working from home. By deploying a virtual private network (VPN) your remote workers can have easy and secure access to the company network. Direct Support can also set-up Web based access to files and email when your only option is a shared or public PC.

We have expertise in BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Android based personal devices which can be configured to integrate with Microsoft Exchange Server for a corporate / small Business environment or, in the case of an individual, a single pop3 mail account. We are also able to deploy and maintain BlackBerry Enterprise Server / Exchange Solutions.

  • "We have always found Direct Support to be reliable and, no matter how trivial the issues, the staff have always been very helpful and professional."

    Ann, Sports Council
  • "We have been working with Direct Support since the beginning of 2006. As a small, but fast growing PR company, we depend entirely on media and communication facilities; we have relied on Direct Support to provide an efficient and effective service that covers all our many IT needs and never lets us down. The team is friendly, only a phone call away and they always have an affordable solution. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and I am confident that you won't find a better service that offers everything from IT supply to IT support."

    Shannon C, PR Company
  • "I have been working with Direct Support for over a year now and have always received excellent service from everyone who works there. They offer us an end to end service, providing hardware, software and config expertise for all of our issues as they appear, be they with Windows, BlackBerry, comms. You name it, they can help. I receive sales calls from companies trying to canvass business every week and I happily turn them away."

    Rob E, Recruitment Company
  • "I have worked with Direct Support for a couple of years and never having had IT support previously, would find myself in all sorts of trouble if they weren't on hand. We are a small business yet they treat us like a Plc. I would also not describe myself as an expert in these matters but they manage to make me understand and remain patient with me when I don't. Very good value for money and there have been a few times when I know they have gone well beyond the call of duty. They know their stuff and that helps me sleep at night"

    Philip G, Management Recruitment
  • "Direct Support has been looking after my firm's computer system for the last two years and they have been excellent. Obviously since we are a small firm any problems can be very disruptive, and it has always done a fantastic job getting us back up and running as quickly as possible. I can highly recommend its services. Polite, efficient and reliable."

    Robert D, Solicitors
  • "Direct Support has been our go to IT support provider for over 5 years and we continue to value their excellent and friendly service. From supporting our staff on day to day requests, through to server deployments, networking and complex audits they have not skipped a beat."

    Kunal D, PR & Marketing
  • "We have been using Direct Support for our IT needs since the beginning of 2007 and have always been delighted with the service we receive. The engineers are efficient and highly knowledgeable, always available on the phone and visit us regularly in the office to ensure everything is running smoothly. If you're looking for value for money, local IT support, then these are the people to use."

    Tim S, Distribution & Marketing
  • "When running a small business, you need to be able to rely on quick and affordable IT Support and that's definitely what we get when we use Direct Support in Twickenham.
    A friendly team who never find a challenge to big or too small (or too strange!) and their commitment to completing a task and the help they supply is outstanding. I would thoroughly recommend any business big or small to try them out!"
