We can support each & every type of business backup service from tapes to online, NAS & co-location. But if we think your backup solution is anything other than rock solid, we’d like you to consider our Reassure60 service – backup & disaster recovery designed specifically for SME’s. Once installed most customers use one word to describe it - "Amazing!"


We are an authorised broadband provider. We can provide just about any type of internet service from ADSL to EFM, leased line or wireless services. These services include suitability for voice/telephony (VOIP) as well as data & are all fully supported from our helpdesk. So in short whatever the connection you want to the outside world or to link offices together, we can provide it.


Here at A & N we have devised Cloud30. Cloud30 takes all the leading cloud technologies & turns them into a complete SME cloud IT solution. Unlike most cloud offerings, Cloud30 is not a one size fits all solution – it’s a business solution specifically devised for the SME. So if you are a small business – it’s intended for you.


Let’s hope it never happens to your company. But just in-case it does, you need to have in-place a really good set of recovery procedures. We’ve devised a comprehensive backup & disaster recovery solution specifically for the SME. It’s called Reassure60.


Here at A & N we like to think of ourselves as your outsourced IT dept. We aren’t computer geeks, just real people providing real support on a real helpdesk. A support contract with us means you get quick & efficient fixes whether that be over the phone, via remote control or an engineer visit to your site.


We can host your website, we can host your email & we can filter your email for spam & viruses. We will look after your domain name & do many other web services & hosting type tasks but we are not web designers or SEO people. If you are looking for web design or SEO, we can introduce you to the right people.


Our team of engineers have many years of experience & plenty of real world expertise installing IT. From networks to servers, routers/firewalls to PC’s & printers - if you are an SME we can install/commission your IT.


Across all our customers we have a wide range of smartphones from Blackberry to iphones, android & windows. We can assist with many different types of apps & better use of mobile communications. Invariably we configure email, diary & contacts on mobiles to sync with Outlook. If you have an IT/mobile integration requirement, give us a call.

Office 365

As an authorised Microsoft Partner we are ideally placed to advise you on Office 365 & it's suitability for your company. Careful consideration needs to be given to identify the most appropriate licensing & after we've done that with you, we'd be delighted to implement your Microsoft Office 365.


From our workshop in our Preston office we regularly repair customer IT equipment. We do not cater for the home market & do not sell second-hand IT equipment. We only source brand new equipment from leading distributors.


We sell computer systems, networking equipment & software to SME businesses.  We are Microsoft accredited SBS specialists, we are a Sage business partner & have a whole list of other professional qualifications & accreditations as long as your arm.


We are an experienced team of computer engineers; specialists in looking after the IT of small to medium sized businesses. Our focus is to ensure your business gets the most from it's IT; zero downtime, return on investment and "hassle free" computers for you and your staff.


We are resellers of SIP Communicator - the ideal phone system for SME's; non-geographic which is so useful. In other words, have your extensions anywhere (office, home, laptop). Guaranteed business quality VOIP with low call charges & you pay per extension monthly so there is no expensive PBX to pay for up front.
