How reliable IT support saves time and prevents headaches for Newcastle HR consultant

No business is too small to benefit from Managed IT support. Take Susan Fearon of Savvy HR, a one-woman HR consultant with over 30 years working with organisations developing HR infrastructures to support businesses throughout the employee lifecycle with everything from recruitment to employment terms and conditions, contracts, policies and procedures, employee engagement and more. When you’re an expert in your field like Susan, the last thing you want to do is waste precious time navigating IT problems – and that’s where we come in.

Savvy HR approached Adept CTS following several IT struggles with a past supplier. As the first port of call for her clients’ HR needs, Susan requires access to several email addresses, along with GDPR compliant data handling of sensitive information, cloud storage and more.

Even small businesses like Susan’s can benefit hugely from the right level of IT support. For example, we help Susan to manage her mailboxes, including mobile access, as well as providing her with cutting-edge software like Office 365, OneDrive and 3CX video conferencing.

For Susan, it’s more than just having access to all the best software – although that helps! We are also on-hand to support her with technical support. As her Managed IT provider, our team of expert engineers can tap into her device remotely and quickly diagnose the problem. This saves time and energy for Susan, who knows she can call the Adept team for any issue or query and she’ll always be greeted by one of our friendly engineers.

The Challenges

Savvy HR needed an IT consultancy that supported her business to grow and was accessible when she needed them, her challenges were:

  • As a one-person business, Susan was concerned she would be ‘low priority’ to a big IT company
  • Susan needed quick and effective support without the corporate price tag
  • Data privacy was one of her highest priorities, along with easy-to-use cloud storage
  • Time-consuming tasks such as file transfers, installing new software and problem-solving networking issues
  • Continuing seamless communication during the pandemic
