IT Installation Services Feedback

“Agile’s work and support has been consistently excellent, from the initial redesign of our IT system and the subsequent provision of hardware and software. The support is easy to access from a team of well-qualified and experienced engineers, who are very responsive and good communicators. Their advice is well considered and readily available when needed.”

Michael, Griffin Chapman

“I cannot fault Agile; they were not pushy like some IT companies and only ensured we had what was required. We quickly built up a great working relationship with Gary who carried out all the onsite work. Whilst IT is often bottom of the list for many care companies, I would recommend you get Agile in to carry out an onsite audit you will be surprised how quickly they find ways your IT could be compromised and give you a solution to put it right.”

David, Managing Director of Cephas/Alpha Group

“Good IT function has become a major part of our business. The decision to engage Agile as our advisors has given us confidence, unparalleled support and pro-action that we previously did not have. Agile understand our business and its needs in future development.”

Gavin, Howard Construction (Anglia) Ltd

Installations and Upgrades FAQs

What is network installation?

There are two different types of network installation – Wide Area Network (WAN) and Local Area Network (LAN). Essentially, a WAN is an extensive network of information that is not tied to specific location. WANs facilitate the sharing of data between various devices across multiple locations using a WAN provider.

WANs are often created by IT service providers, which are then leased to other organisations. Essentially, employees can use the network to exchange and store data and communicate with others from wherever they are in the world if they have access to the WAN. Access is often granted by Wi-Fi and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).

A LAN network installation, on the other hand, is far more localised. It is a network that is installed on two or more computers. The computers in a LAN are connected by ethernet or Wi-Fi and are exclusive to an organisation, hence the term local.
At Agile Technical Solutions, we can offer all manner of network installations, including the provision of internet lines. We also provide additional LAN solutions, including Unified Threat Management, Wi-Fi Access Points/controllers, switches, and structured cabling.

What are the best laptops or desktop PCs for business?

It depends on the intended use of the laptop or desktop PC. Today, it is best practice to opt for a PC or laptop with a solid-state drive (SSD). Since an SSD does not have moving parts, it is more reliable and far quicker. They are also more shock-resistant, making them perfect for business use.

At Agile Technical Solutions, we partner with Hewlett Packard. This means that we can offer the full range of devices to fit any budget, from desktops and laptops to 2-in-1s that bridge the gap between laptops and tablets, with touchscreen interfaces and 360-degree hinges.

With regards to desktops, they do not need to be large, cumbersome devices. In fact, many come in compact sizes to deliberately save on desk space while being powerful for everyday use.

Why does Wi-Fi drop out at my office?

Without an onsite visit to review the current situation, it’s impossible to say for certain why business Wi-Fi may drop out. However, usually poor signal coverage is to blame. This can be down to an overall insufficient number of access points or that they are aging or faulting and need replacing.

Many companies use built-in Wi-Fi from their ISP router, which will only broadcast from a single location. If the location is tucked away, it will struggle to cover even small offices.

It’s important to understand the core reason for lack of signal. At Agile Technical Solutions, we will survey your entire site before recommending the best course of action.

How quick is it to install a new PC?

It should be very quick. As Essex-based IT installers, we usually image PCs at our offices and in most cases, these are then sent directly to the client for use. In some cases, an install maybe required, especially if specific non-cloud software is needed. In this case, we schedule an appropriate time to deliver and set-up. Usually, this takes around 30 minutes from arrival.

What is cloud migration?

In server installation terms, cloud migration is the process of moving an IT server to the cloud. Cloud migration can take many forms. However, the most common process is to transfer the data and systems from an on-premises data centre to the cloud.

The business benefits of moving to the cloud are:
- Flexibility. Employees can access cloud services and data from anywhere, making it easier for businesses to expand into new territories.
- Scalability. Businesses can quickly scale up or down to meet demand in way that would be more cumbersome with on-premise.
- Cost. Companies that choose to move their IT networking to the cloud reduce the amount they spend on IT.
- Performance. Many organisations report enhanced employee connectivity and performance.

A lot of planning needs to go into cloud migration. As an IT installations provider, we carefully consider all the data held on the current server to ensure nothing is lost during the migration. This means being meticulous with our project management so that current systems remain operational and available throughout the migration.
