What Our Customer's Say

We contacted Phil at Flyford Connect when we were experiencing major problems with our network system.

His response and efficient manner of dealing with the issues was first class. Based on this, we have contracted Flyford Connect to manage all our IT requirements. We are already 5 months into our first years contract and the service and customer-focused delivery is excellent.

The best part for me is that the continual problems we had with our system have gone and what was once a problem constantly raised at our weekly meetings, very rarely gets a mention now.

Phil & the team at Flyford Connect have played an integral part in the expansion of Green Mile Trees IT systems. We couldn’t have done it without them. They have always been there to resolve various problems along the way, big or small. We would highly recommend Flyford and thank them for all their help.

Phil was our main point of contact at Flyford Connect who we contacted when we were experiencing problems with our backup servers.

He is very professional and obviously knowledgeable in this specialist field, as he was able to diagnose the situation and suggest a workable solution almost immediately. Since helping us we haven’t had a single issue with our backup servers, therefore I would highly recommend Flyford Connect.
