Happy 8th Birthday

We are excited to be celebrating our 8th Birthday here at MPR IT.  When Alex, Andy and Richard started this venture back in 2008 they set out to change the way that IT Support was delivered to clients throughout Kent and the South East.  Now 8 years later they can proudly say that this has been achieved and continue to look out they can continue to break the boundaries in supporting our customers.  Congratulations guys and Happy Birthday MPR IT.

Customer Security

MPR IT take security extremely seriously and with increased attempts of companies being victim to attacks, we have looked at ways to ensure we hold our customer data securely. With this in mind we would like to ensure our records are up to date of authorised employees at your business to provide certain information to, or that can authorise quotes for any additional work to be carried out. This also includes authorisation for password resets.  Our Customer Services rep, Nicki will be contacting each company in the next few weeks to complete an Authorised signatory form to ensure we have the correct information on our records.  We know that personnel and positions can change within our clients business and telling us of changes can be a low priority.  We would appreciate if you are contacted by Nicki if you can return the information to us as soon as possible so that we can keep your data correct and secure.

New Website

Our new website has now been launched which we have been working hard on for a few months now.  On the new page you will find case studies of many of the projects we have completed over the last 8 years.  Some of which we have been able to complete where larger organisations have said it is impossible.  Please head over to the new site and see the full range of projects we are able to work on to make your business more efficient in terms of technology. www.mpr-it.co.uk

MacMillan Cancer walk

As many of you know Richard is an avid walker in his spare time and has recently been enjoying his summer break by walking The Pennine Way.  This is no mean feat and is just over 250 miles in total.  In June he will be taking a short stroll in comparison and will be taking part in The South Coast walk from Brighton to Eastbourne approximately 26 miles in aid of Macmillan Cancer.  If you would like to support him in this worthwhile cause please head over to his Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/26SouthDowns.  Many of you may have had sadly experience of a friend or loved one suffering from Cancer and this is a fantastic charity that help both those suffering and their families in hard times.

Blogs & Social Media

News stories have been a bit slow of late, and so you may have noticed we have not posted as much on our social media and blogs.  We strongly believe that we only post worthwhile news stories and keep you up to date on information only that is of interest.  On our new website you can still find all our historic blogs including our latest one on Office 365 and how your business can benefit from cloud based storage. www.mpr-it.co.uk/blog. Please also make sure you follow us on Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter for the most update posts.

Structured Cabling by MPR IT

Structured Cabling by MPR IT.

Our engineers here at MPR IT, are experienced in all aspects of structured cabling installation through to switching/routing design and implementation. We can cater for anything from a handful of PCs to over 500 points across any number of floors or buildings.  Whether your employees are all in the same building but on different floors or even in separate buildings, MPR IT can look at the best ways to ensure your business is connected either through cabling or wireless connectivity.

Cabling covers a multitude of projects for us whether you are moving to a new office or to tidying up a server cabinet that looks like a spaghetti tin has exploded.  It is surprising how much simpler it is to solve an issue with servers when the cupboard is neat and tidy.

Cable-Rack-1

With cabling looking neat and tidy it can save hours of work and therefore extra £££’s on the invoice when your server is playing up.  The above photo shows how much work can be involved just before the issue can be resolved.  I know how annoyed I get just with the cables behind my TV unit, I would probably have a meltdown if something in my office looked like this before photo.  (Yes I admit to being a neat freak).

More complex projects that the team have worked on over the years include re-cabling offices, whether due to office move or refurbishment. (Including our own office right now).  Many new offices these days are open plan and so it is critical to ensure that floor points are put in strategically to make the best use of an office.  When a company is considering a new office or layout the engineers at MPR can offer consultation on how best to position cabling and power points before the flooring is chosen.   Even if it is a solid concrete floor we can get the project done for you.  No one likes to see cables across the floor especially your Health & Safety officer.  They can cause a trip hazard, as well as running the risk of being accidentally pulled out losing power to your PC.   Resulting in all your unsaved work being lost. See an example of work carried out by MPR IT.
