Who are we and where did we come from?

  1. Jun 1999
    Our first office: Wesley Chambers, Aldershot

    Net Technical Solutions was established in June 1999 and was the brainchild of Managing Director Alistair Mackenzie. The company was originally based in Aldershot, (in the offices pictured opposite), and spent the first 8 years of its life providing support, network security and web-based development services to a growing number of small to medium businesses in and around the Hampshire/Surrey borders.

  2. Jul 2007

    Meanwhile, half way round the M25, present Commercial Director Ben Stupples was busy building a similar business in Watford, Herts and through the power of networking the two organisations came together in July 2007.

  3. Jan 2011

    Over the next few years the business continued to grow exponentially and Alistair and Ben’s shared vision began to take shape. A one-stop solution for support, services and development, delivered by a friendly down to earth team, underpinned by first class account management and strong business systems. The business moved from Aldershot to Farnham in January 2011, largely to accommodate our now 16-strong team, and 3 years later another big milestone in the Net Technical story took place.

  4. Jun 2014
    Dunston IT logo

    We had known the owners of Aldershot-based Dunston IT for many years having always enjoyed a friendly rivalry; so when Managing Director Malcolm Hearn was looking towards retirement we struck a deal and the business was officially acquired in June 2014. We literally doubled in size to 32 employees overnight which brought its challenges, not least the need to relocate to larger offices in The Millennium Centre, where we are now based. The benefits of putting these businesses together are too numerous to list in these few lines, but alongside acquiring a fabulous new client base we also took on some amazing staff. Chief among these was Richard Brain, former Dunston shareholder and now Technical Director at Net Technical, who not only completes our current Board but also shares in the vision.

  5. Now 2017

    ...and that brings us to the present day. There are no further acquisitions 'planned' but the business continues to grow organically year on year and we are all still passionate about what we are doing. We have a wonderful team of 35 people working for us and are blessed with a fantastic client base, many of whom have been with us since it all started and long may that continue. If you are a prospective customer reading this, then we would be delighted to welcome you into the ‘family’...

Our Team

We are proud to have built up a long-serving team that contains a wealth of experience from all walks of life – not just the IT industry and with many employees having given more than 10 years of continuous service.

We all have a great enthusiasm for technology but are NOT techno-geeks – a fact of which we are immensely proud! We are a talented, friendly and approachable bunch and love what we do, believing in proactive IT support with a personal touch.

Our technical staff are hand-picked to fit the Net Technical ethos and so everyone we employ must have the right mix of technical competency and customer facing skills. As a result we like to think that we are genuinely nice people to work with.

Thankfully so do our customers, who according to a recent survey find us straight talking, friendly, approachable, responsive, knowledgeable, trustworthy, reliable and technically adept...which is always nice to hear!

….but we don’t always get it right and any IT company who tells you they do is pulling the wool over your eyes. What we are however, is honest and transparent and so if something has been missed, or delayed, or a ball dropped, (which thankfully is very rare), then we will own up to this and move heaven and earth to put it right.

Our Customers

We are lucky to work with a great variety of clients from different sectors and of different sizes, building strong relationships and partnerships over the years. Many of our clients have been with us for years and they have come to see our friendly, experienced staff as much as trusted advisors or even a part of their business, rather than pure service support providers.

We understand that each business is unique and we make sure that we treat them accordingly, adapting our style to meet their specific requirements. For some we operate as a completely outsourced IT department providing proactive server and computer support, day to day IT troubleshooting and strategic planning/advice.

In other cases, particularly with larger customers, we work alongside their existing internal IT department to provide 2nd and 3rd line support as well as escalation, holiday and sickness cover and project work.

Some customers use us purely for our bespoke software development capabilities but most commonly we are a one-stop solution for everything – one number to call for all IT issues.

Our customers are generally located in the South East of England, although we do have some further afield, and they span many different industry types from Financial Services, Marketing and Legal Services to Insurance, Estate Agency and Engineering.

If you are a prospective client, reading this for the first time, please do get in contact. We’ll have a friendly chat about your requirements and see where it takes us.
