What our clients say...

"When my server room got flooded and my main file server’s power supply blew, you can imagine how stressed I was. All my colleagues could not work until I got it fixed. Everyone I phoned said the same old story “Delivery in 5-7 days”. When you said three hours even though you did not have the part in stock I almost laughed at you. Well, to my disbelief, 3.5 hours later my new power supply is fully installed and my server is up and running again.

Many thanks for your excellent service and FAST delivery. I wish all companies had service levels of this high calibre." Leon Brits
