Looking for an Edinburgh IT company?

Here are just some of the problems we solve for our customers day in, day out.

Minimize IT disruption and improve uptime

Every moment your systems are down equals lost revenue for your business. Availability is key to satisfying your customers and being able to actively take opportunities as they arise. We are an IT company in Edinburgh that provides zero-footprint responsive IT support to ensure you are up and running at all times and ready for them ahead of time.

Effective support for remote and hybrid working

COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated the need for remote and hybrid working within SMEs. And if you’re unsure whether you have the correct IT setup for a productive remote future – then you’re not alone. We’re here to help assess your needs and maximize productivity and collaboration in the new normal.

Focus on your core business, not your IT

IT should drive productivity, collaboration and revenue-generating activities for your business. Not become a millstone. If you are a small business in Edinburgh and you are spending more and more time and money solving the same old IT challenges – you probably need help. We’ll help you break the cycle and make your IT work for your business again.

Protect your business and customers from hackers

Unfortunately 46% of UK businesses have fallen victim to Cyber Crime at some point, with the average attack costing up to £11,000. So your business getting hacked is no longer a possibility but a certainty. We can help you adopt a more proactive approach to IT security via Cyber Essentials that protects your employees, data, and customers.

Are you tired of the distraction of managing your own IT?

Why not pass it over to an IT company in Edinburgh you can trust?

Whether it’s setting up new laptops, cleaning up viruses and malware, troubleshooting problems with printers, restoring lost files or folders from a backup or resolving issues with email and other critical business applications – it all takes time. Time that isn’t spent productively on driving your business forward.

We would be willing to bet managing daily IT issues is not the reason why you do what you do. At Managed IT Experts, our goal is to empower Edinburgh-based businesses to do what they do best. By doing what we do best – which is managing your IT to a high standard.

Thanks to our years of experience and flat-rate pricing, we can solve your IT challenges more cost-effectively than in-house solutions. By proactively monitoring your systems, we’ll fix most issues before you even know they’re there. Whatever your existing IT shortcomings, we can help you overcome them.
