    Some things are not cheap, but like Stella Artois, reassuringly expensive! The cost of something should always be judged on the value one gets, and boy (if I can say boy) is our service from Cara valuable. Firstly, and very reassuringly, the team buck a modern day trend, and answer the phone within seconds of the caller selecting one (of only a few) options. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and always solve the problem. That is why they remain an absolute must for the businesses I am involved with. As business owners, we are conscious of the cyber threats/scams that plague modern day business activities - however, most of us have little chance of knowing the direction and/or nature of them, nor how damaging they can be left undetected. Thanks to the team for their work.

    It's great using Cara. They are a phone call away, understand my garbled non-tech request for what I think I might need or a vague idea of my end goal. Then they just sort it out whilst I made a cuppa. Excellent. Highly recommended

    CARA Technology started to provide our IT support late last year, we were supported through the onboarding process and any issues were resolved in a timely manner with good communication. I recently had an issue with our sharepoint site, and liaised with Harrison in the support team, who within 10 minutes had resolved my issue and given me some advice on what to do, which worked perfectly. It is good to know support is available that is responsive and able to assist when required. Thank you to the whole team who put their customers first and ensure satisfaction means something to you!

    I used the Cara helpdesk and once again they were proficient, helpful and professional. They dealt with my problem immediately, without any fuss and sorted me in no time. A great service and one that always delivers.

    I use CARA Technology for both outsourced IT support and Cyber Security. The team are always professional, helpful and super efficient. I have called recently with some challenges I faced on my laptop and nothing is ever too much trouble. They have also helped me achieve Cyber Essentials status, the process was very simple but incredibly robust. The pre-audit highlighted areas for development and I felt so supported during the process. I would highly recommend CARA to anyone and will continue to do so to my contacts and customers. Thank you to the whole CARA team for always putting your customers first and being such an invaluable partner.

    I was working remotely at home yesterday and had problems using dual screens, and with the sound on my laptop. Our IT department referred me to Cara, and Dan Braddock was able to remotely sort both issues quickly and very capably whilst I was on the phone. Highly recommended.

    IT support is an essential component of business in the 21st century. It's a simple fact of life that on an increasing basis, business is moving digital. Once solitary brick-and-mortar shops have now embraced the digital revolution. Regardless of your digital preference, eCommerce, brochure websites, or digital storage and management systems assist in running your brick-and-mortar business. If you incorporate digital technologies in your working activities, you need a support solution; otherwise, you risk the security and integrity of your data.

    It's also important to remember that if you store any sensitive customer or employee information on your digital systems, you must keep this data in compliance with GDPR and DPR regulations. We understand that many can find these regulations confusing and complex, and that's okay. At CARA Technology, we provide IT support and security services, ensuring that your business is as safe as reasonably practicable.

    A managed service is a proactively managed and monitored version of an IT Solution, IT Support, Anti-Virus Software, or Data Backup. Unmanaged IT is unreliable and expensive as indeed any kind of response-only-service tends to be. Our investment in a comprehensive IT and Security infrastructure gives our clients peace of mind for an affordable monthly fee. You know that with CARA Technology managed IT support, you have a seat at the table, with easy access to experienced IT experts, ready to help you with any of your IT queries and questions.

    Relax with CARA Technology – Manchester IT company

    IT systems can feel like magic when everything is working as it should. Still, the frustration can be intense regarding error messages, security breaches, or just computer systems that aren't fit for purpose.

    Just consider how much data you deal with regularly. You'll likely interact with payment details, customer information, bank accounts, employee and client details, and more in your daily business activities.

    This information is very important to protect; it's valuable to criminals and those with ill-intent, ranging from dangers as innocuous as targeted junk mail to more significant hazards such as theft, fraudulent purchases, or identity theft; the list goes on.

    Working with CARA Technology provides peace of mind, allowing your business to relax and focus on your everyday operations, safe in the knowledge that experienced CARA support staff are only a phone call away should you need their assistance.

    Manchester IT support companies – Advantages of outsourced IT support in Manchester

    Many would argue that in an ideal world, every company would have its own in-house IT support team dedicated to smoothly running the business's digital assets. However, outsourcing has many significant advantages compared to in-house IT support services. For example, many in-house teams focus on reactive network defence and IT maintenance approaches. As such, by outsourcing your IT support, you can rest assured knowing your staff will utilise the latest technology and expert insight to prevent problems before they arise in the first place.

    To provide an equivalent service in-house, you need to hire several experts from a wide range of backgrounds, with numerous specialist IT skillsets. However, hiring an experienced and specialised IT support team can cost significant time and money, two precious resources many businesses cannot afford to spend when building and equipping a team of IT specialists. On the other hand, outsourcing offers a more cost-effective solution, allowing companies to benefit from the experience of dedicated IT support staff without needing to retain their in-house team.

    Another advantage of outsourced IT compared to an in-house team is the above mentioned peace of mind. By choosing IT support services from a team of dedicated experts such as CARA Technology, you don't need to spend time researching, installing, and learning how to use the latest technology and software. Our experts provide support and cyber security services to a wide range of clients, and as such, we ensure that they are fully up-to-date, equipped with the latest technologies and trained in their use.

    CARA Technology, IT company Manchester – IT service providers

    The old saying goes, prevention is always better than a cure and the same rings true for IT support. It's always better to prevent a data breach than clean up and put the pieces back together after one. That's why our IT support services operate proactively rather than as a reactionary firefighting solution. As experienced IT professionals, we understand Information Technology's vital role in modern business. It's of the utmost importance that performance and reliability are maintained; after all, cybercrime poses a significant risk to companies in all industries and sectors.

    We understand the importance of our client's data and recognise cybercrime's significant threat, constantly striving better to protect our client's data and associated backups. Maintaining performance, reliability, and cyber hygiene is core to everything we do. Our mission is not complete until our clients are happy with the service we provide. We do not accept anything short of complete customer satisfaction in every aspect of the customer journey.

    Is it time to switch your IT support provider? Managed IT services Manchester

    Almost every modern business requires technology to function in daily society. Suppose you're experiencing downtime and delays due to either unresolved IT issues or taking significant time to resolve them. In that case, that's a sign that your IT solution isn't performing at the level you require. As such, you should seriously consider switching IT support providers.

    It's a common misconception that switching support providers is too stressful to be worthwhile, but that's simply not true. Using our simple three-step process, CARA Technology makes switching managed IT support providers simple. Our switch process is so easy to follow that we take on an average of two new clients each month.
