Software Solutions

Software installation and support

You wouldn't go on safari without an experienced guide, so don't go shopping for software without seeking the advice of someone who knows.

As experienced IT support people, Compworks can advise on an extensive range of software solutions suited to your needs. We can provide many (anonymous) examples of other peoples and organisations' experience with different types of software. We have a great deal of experience in software sales and installation for a variety of situations, including:

Office applications
Accounting suites
Remote data capture
Order management
Service systems
Multimedia applications
Server applications

As with our computer sales, we take the time to find out exactly what you want to do, before we advise you on the software available, and. unlike staff in computer shops and larger computer stores, we will be happy to advise you on the relative strengths and weaknesses of different packages. Once the software arrives we can also install it, set it up and guide you through the essential operating features.

We can also advise you on other vital but seemingly more familiar areas of software, such as the appropriate choice of anti-virus software, firewalls, and data backup services. We can also provide detailed guidance on the sometimes tricky issue of software licenses to make sure that your business is not exposed to any unnecessary risks.

We are not tied to any particular manufacturer, software supplier or computer store. This means we can provide the best combination of software to suit your organisation's specific business requirements. And all this doesn't mean that you will pay a hefty premium for our service, you'll be surprised to discover just how competitive we can be.

Software repairs
Are you having problems installing certain software, or perhaps you have installed software, which has had unexpected side effects or caused conflicts with existing software? We can help with all software problems and issues relating to Windows updates, etc.

We can perform a full Windows system repair and solve a variety of driver issues. In some cases we may need to completely re-install the Windows operating system along with all available service packs and a full Windows up-date. If this is the case, we will advise you on options for data transfer and back-up and re-installation of third party software.

We can also repair or re-install and configure corrupted software such as Microsoft Office. To do this, we need the original installation disks and/or the product activation key. Contact us and we can advise you on what we need and where the necessary information can be found.

Software upgrades
It is possible to upgrade your system from Windows XP or Windows Vista to Windows 7. Due to the higher specification of Win 7, such as the need for more memory, we may not be able to achieve this without also upgrading your hardware. Please contact us and we can profile your current system and advise you on the most appropriate solution.

Manufacturers constantly improve and add new features to their software, releasing new versions when appropriate. For example, Microsoft have released various versions of their popular Office suit - currently Office2010.

You may wish to gain access to the latest features incorporated into the newer version or simply to be able to read files created on another computer using the latest version. We can up-grade your current software to the latest version and make sure that all your old files are still accessible.
