CN IT Solutions are a local IT company formed back in 2009, and are now in our new office in Escrick. Our aim is to provide a professional IT service to small and medium sized businesses, based on our 4 core services; Management, Support, Consultancy and Procurement.
How can we help you?
CN IT Solutions shape our IT services to meet any of the specific requirements your business may have. We also provide you with help and advice on upgrades, security, licensing, data-backup and disaster recovery. We are not a computer services company that will simply sell you a "computer maintenance" contract or provide a general spectrum of services related to computers.
Existing clients tell us that they signed up for a IT Managed Service contract for two key reasons; one, they find it easier when they can budget for their yearly IT costs and two, because they need to know that the IT within their business is in safe hands. Therefore whilst we tailor all of our IT Managed Service contracts to meet the needs of induvidual businesses, they are all based on the same principle - Proactive Management and Unlimited support for the IT within your business.
You will of course also have access to all the expertise, guidance, support and advice you'll ever need and can be safe in the knowledge that your IT contract is fully supported by a comprehensive SLA agreement.
