Switching IT Support
Understanding the Process
The reason you’re here is because you are not happy with the way your IT Support is being looked after. Most likely your expectations have not been met and it has left you feeling frustrated and anxious.
We are often approached by clients who feel that their current IT Support provider is just not mature enough, not providing the service they were promised and unable to grow with them.
If you’re considering switching from your current IT Support provider, it is understandable that you may have some concerns. Our experienced team and a dedicated on-boarding specialists will manage the whole process, ensuring a smooth seamless transition.
Trust in Westgate

We understand that moving providers can seem scary and overwhelming. You and your business need an experienced and dedicated team to assure you that your business is moving in the right direction. With over 25 years’ experience, you can trust Westgate.

We often see similar issues or common failings with a client’s current IT Support provider that they are unhappy with:

Really prompt service. The ‘helper’ was very professional and understanding of the issue raised, all resolved speedily. Thanks!
Through the company I work for, I’ve had the benefit of Westgates support for some time now and have been very happy with the service. Knowledgeable, helpful staff who are usually able to resolve any IT issues very quickly.
We’ve been working with Westgate IT for a few years now and have always found their service desk and technical teams to be helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive. Westgate have helped us by ensuring that our end-user systems continue to run smoothly during these difficult times.

Westgate IT are true partners and not just a supplier – they go above and beyond and are with you through thick and thin. They are the only IT provider we have worked with in 15 years that truly take the time to understand us – they aren’t perfect by any means, no IT provider is, but they recognise this and work with you all the way to get to where you need to be. We’re with them for the long haul, and they with us, and have recently deepened our partnership with them to allow us to focus on what we do best – support our own customers!
