The team at E-mpower IT have mastered the art of combining their technical knowledge with the delivery of a friendly, responsive and cost-effective service that has served St Peter & St James Hospice very well since 2007. I would have no hesitation in recommending their IT support services to others.
I have known E-mpower IT since 1999 when they helped me fine tune specifications for a new IT system which helped with a business merger of two businesses allied to the NHS. Working with them was enjoyable.... the team there has the correct meld of friendliness, professionalism and approachability which businesses should be able to expect....and it is excellent at de-mystifying some of the more technical, jargonistic aspects of IT. Latterly, in the sole owner SME sector, I have found no difference in E-mpower's responses......fantastic ( a word which, if checked in the mirror, is virtually always accompanied in its delivery, by a smile!
Peter Burholt, Director, Peter Burholt Ltd
E-mpower.IT has ably supported my consultancy business for over ten years, through both growth and nationalisation.
Peter Burholt Ltd advises clients on the development of catering and hospitality services throughout the UK. E-mpower.IT has given practical and focuses advice, and the on-line problem solving service has enabled the consultancy to fully function 24/7.
We require professional, up-to-the-minute advice from a trustworthy source. E-mpower.IT provides this and more.
I could count on one hand the number of organisations I would recommend to my clients. This has happened with great success. Surely, this is the best accolade to give E-mpower.IT?
We retained Empower-IT in 2001, to sort out the chaos caused to our IT systems by a City based firm.
This task Empower-IT did in double quick time and thereafter ensured that our systems ran smoothly under their watchful eye. Their customer service was always excellent, I cannot remember ever experiencing any frustrating down time.
They went on to build our website, that attracted 250 thousand viewers per month.
In 2005 we set up a subsidiary company offering WEEE compliance to our clients. Compliance was IT based and our systems were primarily designed by E-mpower-IT, enabling us to provide a successful compliance service with just 4 staff.
During the intervening period E-mpower-IT supported us with a management consultancy and frequently stepped into the breach when we needed outside specialist help on such matters as logistics .
Not just a supplier they became a valuable member of our team, during my time as the Director of Lighting Industry Federation and the Chief Executive of Lumicom.
