Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it, below are just some of the lovely things our customers have said about us!

Rachael Fernandez – Bruck Payne Associates Ltd – May 2012
“From the first meeting through to the final product, Rich Garner of Solidify IT has not only provided professionalism but has brought world class customer service to the table and delivered on everything he committed to and more.
As a non IT literate individual, I was intimidated by the prospect of developing a new website with a tight turn around time.  Rich managed my expectations with a great balance of vision and reality and provided the leadership required to achieve success.
I look forward to working with Rich and Solidify IT on a regular basis in the future and would highly recommend this company if you are looking for delivery on time, quality and simply everything you hope it will be.”

Would definitely recommend – Dejones (14/02/2012)
“Rich created a website for my new business that more than exceeded my expectations. Not only did he take on board my wish list of how I initially wanted the site to look and perform, but he very quickly had it looking even better than I could have ever imagined, in a very short space of time. All feedback given was actioned positively and I am delighted with the overall end result – both how it looks and how easy it is to update myself. I have received some very positive comments about my website from both past colleagues and new clients and I am very proud to point people towards it should they require more information about myself or my business.
I would not hesitate to use Rich’s help and support again and I would certainly recommend him to anyone needing IT assistance or a website creating.”

Mark Bloomfield – fudgesmart – July 2012
“Rich…..
You da man!
All seems fine matey, was dreading the swap over, people don’t realise how important some peoples websites are to their lively hood, it’s a very scary time, common sense says, don’t try to mend something that’s not broken, you’ve alleviated my fears, done more than was asked of you in a very speedy, professional manner, provided a solution to one of my many problems, causing me no stress and leaving me with absolutely nothing to do myself, the next I.T project will be winging itself to you in the next few days!
Thank You!”

Highly Recommended – A+ - 15/01/2012
“Very happy with Solidify IT. My old laptop was running very slowly, and frequently shut itself down. After some remote diagnostics, and general advice my device is now running faster than my much newer laptop. – Amazing! Very impressed, and I’ll not hesitate to recommend you in future. Thanks again!” Jodie.

Mark Booth January 22, 2012
“Having worked closely with Rich on a number of major Managed Service contracts our professional relationship grew rapidly. Rich was nothing less than an absolute pleasure to work alongside, and it would also be a great pleasure working with him again in the future. Extremely hard working, motivated and knowledgeable, Rich will not only be an asset to any future company but a sure investment.”

Gareth Evans, January 23, 2012
“Rich is a very focussed and proactive service delivery manager. He takes his role seriously and applies excellent levels of both customer and business focussed activity ensuring that projects and other deliverables are provided with requisite quality and consistency. Rich fosters an excellent working relationship with colleagues and customers and maintains a very high level of technical awareness and capability. Rich was a customer of mine prior to working for me at Calyx and is able to understand the reality of working under the pressures of today’s environment.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rich to any other employer.”

International Accolade

Our first international remote control testimonial, Thanks Betty!

Try Solidify IT Ltd! We had ours fixed by remote and the whole family are pleased that we are all up to speed again. We recommend this company and will not hesitate to use them again. – Betty Armstrong – Squamish, Canada. 21st June 2012

Time for an Upgrade?

An Australian company are adding a ‘tax’ to users using the Internet Explorer 7 browser, maybe it’s time for an upgrade?

Security vs Security

We all need to feel secure, using our technology online for banking, shopping, and personal information transfer.

The issue is that the dark side of the web is faceless and invisible to us all.

It is important not to get caught up in sophisticated scams that use social engineering to trick you into thinking that you need ever more security.

Recently we dealt with a single machine that was infected with a total of over 350 viruses, Trojan horses, spyware and malware instances! This was due to the user adding more and more ‘security’ software to their machine. As the machine slowed under the weight of all this malware, the user then was targeted by the PC Speed Up bugs, and went ahead and installed them too.

The sad truth is that there is no way to be 100% secure if you have a computer that is used on the Internet, but if you have a good quality anti virus program that is kept updated, you have no need to accept any of the prompts you will get on the web advising you that you need more security.

A good quality anti virus system is not expensive, sometimes free, and can save you a lot of work should your identity be compromised by fake tools.

Remember, when the screen on your PC darkens and the window asks ‘Are you sure’, think of that as someone stood outside your front door telling you you have a problem in the house that they can fix for you. Would you let them in?

Canadian Tour

Solidify IT is coming to the end of its Canadian tour, having cleaned over 700 viruses from machines requiring service.

We will be back in the UK on the 11th June.

 

Remote control services available worldwide with instant feedback!

Artemis Circle – Our latest website build

We are proud to present our latest web design project!

http://artemiscircle.com/

Working very closely with Rachael at Bruck Payne Associates, we created a website with event and discussion integration.
Using WordPress and Buddypress to create the site framework, a custom template was used to bring the site to life. Solidify IT also provide the hosting for the site with regular backup.

The site was very well received at its launch, with updates posted to it from the launch itself via a mobile app! I would like to thank Rachael for choosing Solidify IT, and look forward to working with BPA and Artemis Circle again in the future!

Beware of advertising scams

So a small business lives and dies on networking and recommendation, but sometimes you need to advertise your wares to grow that network.

Advertising options are abundant, there are no end to the number of publications out there.

There is however, a group of publications you should be wary of.

If you’re asked for payment details immediately, and then an ‘accounts department’ later calls to confirm, RUN.

These publications are often distributed by ‘subscription’ and if you look you will see that they don’t publish how to subscribe in their own publication. The likelihood is that they are printing enough copies of their publication to barely cover the people that have taken advertising with them, your ad isn’t likely to get a response, in fact, you’d be better off paying a toddler to whisper your message at play group.

I fell foul of these ‘people’ and do not want anyone else to suffer the same fate. Today I received two invoices for the same advert!

If you have been caught, cancel the payment method you used, or you’re likely to get paid invoices you’ve not authorised appearing.

Buyer beware, advertise only with publications you KNOW exist and are in circulation.

Southern Chronicle, and associated rags, you are hereby awarded the Solidify IT schiester award!
