With support hubs in London, the Home Counties and in the West Country, IT Ambulance ranks as one of the larger IT outsourcing suppliers in the region.
We grew from a genuine desire to help our friends and neighbours with IT problems that they did not understand, and that took us into supporting local businesses where our “Big Company” experience of IT has been invaluable. Fast forward 16 years and we are genuinely humbled by the success that we have created and the loyalty and respect our customers have for our team and brand. In return we work hard to earn that trust by delivering customer service that exceeds expectation, combined with innovative solutions to make your IT investment deliver to your bottom line.
Many decades of relevant experience supporting organizations of all sizes underpin our large, multi-disciplined team of Technicians. Our team are individually incredibly well qualified and we support them to stay current with new technology. Our Managers and Consultants lead from the front on this and hold not only technical qualifications, but a wider range of professional accreditations such as: service delivery and ancillary disciplines such as Privacy.
We are keen for you to take references from these organisations prior to committing to us.
Our size gives us enormous buying power. We were one of the very first companies recognized by Dell as a reseller and hold the highest level of Dell Accreditation. We have similar relationships with a number of software houses and specialist solutions providers.
Though cloud services mean we now support a global client base our typical clients enjoy a same hour on site service guarantee within a 25 mile radius of our physical locations. This allows us to maintain a personal relationship, and that local trusted partner feel. Our policy of supplying named Technicians to our contract customers allows us to develop a close working relationship.
We would be delighted to tell you more about how we differ from the field.
