“IT Services at CAS have been my Internet provider since February 2003 and I cannot thank the team enough for all their help in ‘sorting out’ problems that I have experienced during this time, everyone has always had the time to help me.” – Bob Hall, Broadband Customer
“We approached IT Services at CAS for a quote to install six new PCs and a server in our office. Matt and Danny came to the office to discuss our needs and to look at the existing set-up which was badly in need of modernisation. They advised us of the best system to suit our needs and searched for the most cost effective equipment for us, bearing in mind our budget. The equipment was installed with minimal disruption to our office and is now running well. The Team has been very attentive in clearing up the initial minor teething problems we experienced, both by telephone and by visiting us.” – Rebecca Crerar, Suffolk Refugee Forum, IT Support Customer
