IT Services To Fix Your Technical Headaches

But Who Are We?

Supporting Your People Through Our Tech

We may be all about the tech talk, but we’re also all about people. It’s not tech that forms the core of your business but the people within it. Your team, customers, suppliers, and you all form a nexus for your business, much like a computer network. We’re here to support your people through our technical knowledge and systems to ensure your business is as strong as possible.

Acrylic IT provide manage IT services for businesses across Cheshire, Greater Manchester and the North West. Based in a gorgeous modern office in the heart of Northwich we’re the easy tech solution for businesses needing the level of technical knowledge, expertise and support found in the big cities at a local level.

We know the struggles and challenges you’re facing inside and out and have a dedicated team who live, love and breathe technology so you can relax and focus on the business of running your business. The right IT infrastructure can supercharge your business, providing superior processes, systems, storage solutions and communication solutions that streamline your workflows and maximise profits and efficiency.

Effective IT infrastructure ensures your business has the processes, systems, communication strategies and security in place to service customers and clients efficently, while ensuring maximum productivity and profitability. When business growth happens without this solid foundation in place, that growth is unsustainable. Your people do not have the support necessary to effectively scale your business, and short-term growth quickly leads to a downturn in retention rates and repeat business because you’re unable to keep up with demand. When your business is supported through high level IT services you can create supported growth for sustained success, effectively short-circuiting the ‘growth stutter’ and enabling you to achieve structured prosperity.

All of your business’ data contains sensitive information about your clients, employees, and suppliers. That data is a valuable asset, and as a business owner, you not only have an obligation to protect it for the sake of those it concerns, you need to safeguard it in order to ensure business continuity and prosperity. With government regulations concerning data protection constantly changing and the introduction of GDPR, your business needs an effective plan in place to protect it from security threats. A cyber breach will disrupt the operation of your business and place your reputation at risk with both customers and suppliers. Your IT services will cover your business from multiple angles, preventing as much as possible from ever occurring and, in the event of a breach, minimising risks and downtime, all while ensuring you’re fully compliant.

Businesses across all sectors in the UK are struggling to recruit great staff with high levels of tech skills. This is particularly true for businesses working in smaller, local areas and away from the ‘tech hubs’ created by big cities. The tech geeks of the world tend to gravitate towards each other and areas with the most money to invest in technological innovation and change. It’s a fast-paced world and many small businesses are being left behind as a result, unable to compete with the salaries, benefits and culture offered by big businesses in the likes of London and Silicon Valley. This has created a huge skills gap in many businesses who are unable to attract high-calibre IT professionals. The best way to bridge the skills gap is to outsource your technical needs, taking away the hassle and expense of trying to employ your own IT staff, while ensuring you have access to a highly skilled team you wouldn’t otherwise be able to find or afford.

Tech is designed to augment your reality, improve life and work, and bring efficiency, value, and improved performance to your business. For many businesses, however, tech is a constant headache that never quite works right and seldom lives up to its promises. This is understandable when your IT infrastructure is implemented and managed by people whose expertise lies elsewhere. When you have properly implemented systems, designed for the bespoke needs of your business and team, everything works more effectively. Your team becomes more effective, more productive, capable of handling a higher workload and carrying out tasks to a higher standard, all through effective IT services.

Whenever you make an investment in your business you need to be certain it will deliver a significant return. More than that you want to ensure your outlays are no more than necessary, in order to keep your running costs low and your profits high. The tech in your business is no exception, and managed services will not only reduce the costs associated with your IT systems, it will give you access to a higher level of expertise and a team with the knowledge and technical wizardry needed to effectively implement it all and train your team in its use, ensuring you get the maximum return possible.

Time, in business, is always at a premium, particularly for business owners, directors and managers. When your IT lets you down it’s a huge time suck, keeping you and your team from working effectively, efficiently, or at all. So many teams waste so much time trying to fix technical issues they don’t have the skills to manage, fudge solutions to issues that could swiftly and easily be addressed with the right IT support, and generally tearing their hair out because the systems that are supposed to make everything easier make things worse, don’t work at all, or have never been implemented. If your tech needs are sucking up all your time without delivering the benefits your business needs, managed IT support services will completely change the way you do business, freeing up a huge chunk of time.
