Personalized IT support that is tailored to every budget and customized for every need.

Northamptonshire IT SupportSE Ltd manages your computer network so that your companies' staff isn't bogged down with tedious computer problems, or even worse - total network shutdown. SE Ltd will manage your computer network so systems stay reliable and data remains safe. Keep your IT support costs low and predictable by regularly maintaining your system .

Our Staff and Internal Systems:

SE Ltd - Routine On-Site Support

Our Staff: we have a client service team dedicated to making sure your incoming phone calls and emails for service, schedule changes, or other concerns are taken immediately by a live person in our company-not an answering service, and DEFINITELY not voicemail. In addition, our network operations center (NOC) is there to monitor your system, take helpdesk calls, fix alerts, and provide onsite service. Our field techs are out at client sites providing close personal support that our clients expect from SE Ltd.

Our Ticketing System: when you have a support need, you can call or email in your support request and we'll create a service ticket internally which is monitored from creation, to acceptance by a tech, to completion with a set amount of time (15 minutes for acceptance, 2 hour for resolution.) If a service ticket exceeds its thresholds, our system notifies a greater and great group of people within our company to ensure your service request is handled promptly so you can get back to work, and so your request doesn't get lost requiring you to do a frustrating "vendor follow up."

Our Monitoring System: We connect your network into our network operations department using our monitoring and management platform. Our system inventories your entire computer network for all hardware and software then watches for problems. Alerts are immediately transferred into our ticketing system which are then reviewed by our network operations department and responded to based on the support package you chose.

Eurotrace (client since 2003)

"SE Ltd brought a level or professionalism to our IT infrastructure that previously didn't have. Before SE Ltd, we were working with a consultant that was a one man show and lacked experience, training and support that SE Ltd brings to the table. With SE Ltd we have a team of enthusiastic and experienced consultants that know us personally and how our business runs. They respond very quickly by phone or email and always put us through quickly to a technician whenever we call."

"Before SE Ltd, we were working with another IT support company that never really gave us the response we wanted. We also questioned their commitment to us as a client. SE Ltd came in and installed a Microsoft Small Business Server, updated our desktop computers, and cleaned up the computer network. Our system is now the most stable it has even been. The technicians at SE Ltd are friendly, polite and very responsive. We are very happy with SE Ltd.”

"Best call I ever made! Being an engineer, it is natural for me to try to solve computer problems myself. When it came time to upgrade our entire computer network though, I decided that I needed a professional firm to help us make this transition as smooth as possible. SE Ltd did just that. SE Ltd installed two new servers, a firewall, network antivirus, terminal server and a VPN. The functionality and stability of our network is greatly improved and I was able to spend more of my time working on my business, and not on IT.

"SE Ltd installed a terminal server solution that greatly reduced our dependence on expensive-to-maintain desktop computers as well as increased the ability of our remote users to access system resources the same way local users do. SE Ltd installed an Exchange Server which we use for email, shared calendars, shared contact information and mobile email access with our Pocket PC Phones. SE Ltd has been a real ally in helping us use technology to a competitive advantage.
