From the outset 5C Services Ltd took time to understand our current requirements and our plans for the future.

Since first installation their ongoing commitment to us has been excellent.

As a large commercial printer, we had always employed an IT department, but as technology changed, there was less call for a full-time department to handle our needs. When our staff member chose to leave to further his own career, 5C Services were the natural choice to replace the in-house department. They are conveniently close for major projects, but manage all our day to day needs remotely.

The team are very knowledgeable, helpful and extremely professional in all they do. The response time to some queries is so fast that we barely know we’ve raised a request for support. As a result of such excellent day to day IT technical service, we have recently chosen to migrate our VoIP phone system and broadband connection to consolidate all our technological needs in one place. The whole team really are the perfect solution for a small business’ IT needs and the fact they deliver everything with a smile makes them a pleasure to deal with.
— David Lowe - Commercial Director - Cambrian Printers - Aberystwyth
The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society has recently engaged the services of 5C Services Ltd as part of our strategy to support local business.

— Steve Hughson - Chief Executive - Royal Welsh Agriculture Society - Builth Wells
I turned to Mike Cook and 5c Services when I realised that my current IT engineers could not scale up their services when I wanted to install a server and network all our work stations. I was given a number of options and once I had chosen what to go with Mike and his engineers got the job done quickly and efficiently. With wi-fi increasingly important for our guests 5c got my guest wi-fi system up and running too.

I now employ Mike and his team on a contract so that any problems can be fixed promptly and most of them are solved remotely with the engineer dialling in fix the problem. I could not recommend them highly enough.

I would like to state that since finding 5C Services in May 2013 and granting them the full exclusive contract to manage our outsourced IT department, they have provided excellent care and perfect response to our needs. 5C Services are very fast and efficient and most importantly they have knowledgeable staff team resources. We have tried 3 other outsourced IT companies and 5c Services are by far the best of those we trialled.
— Piers C. Olsen – Managing Director – Olsen Actuation UK Ltd – Daresbury
We have recently moved our IT support to 5c after being impressed with their down to earth and friendly attitude along with the skills they highlighted to us. We were also impressed with the amount of local companies they have as customers and when we asked for recommendations on their services, we did not receive a bad word!

Since then we have been overwhelmed by the support 5c have given us. Progression Training has two offices across Wales along with many Training Advisors working remotely, 5c help us work harmoniously together and whenever problem occurs with our systems they are quickly on the case to find a solution. Their expertise and recommendations has given us food for thought to re-look at some of our current systems. I am sure we will have a very happy future with 5c Services!

We have used 5c Services for many years during which time they have assisted us by: checking and providing adequate computer/security cover, updating/replacing hardware as and when required, correcting technical difficulties faced on a regular basis.

Being totally reliant on having an efficient computer system in place, it is of paramount importance to us that we have the peace of mind of an excellent back-up support. There is no doubt in our minds that we have this through Mike, Kat and their team and have nothing but praise for the work they do for us.

— Chloe Campfield – Sales Executive – Premier-Grip Ltd - Llandrindod Wells
We’ve been using the technical support provided by “5C Services” for over two years now and are delighted by the reliable service provided. “5C Services” have become an integral part of our ability to provide a first class advice service to the public as we depend so much on our IT system functioning smoothly on a daily basis. “5C Services” fully appreciate the extent we rely on the computers working well and to this extent, will come out to our office quickly when we need help. We also ring them for telephone advice which is helpful in dealing with those little niggling things which don’t necessitate an onsite visit and occasionally utilise the remote access support which is particularly impressive - just sit back and watch your PC being fixed from afar! The staff are professional and approachable and don’t bombard us with technical jargon but explain matters simply and clearly (thanks Hugh and JP!). Ultimately, we don’t have the knowledge of how the computers work - we just want them to work so we can get on with providing our service to the public and 5C help us achieve this. I would highly recommend them!
— Sarah Diskin - Manager - Brecon Advice Centre - Brecon
We’ve been expanding our business over the last 10 years. Our IT demands have progressively increased accordingly. We used to be able to do all IT in house but soon needed external help with networking etc. 6 months ago we started a contract with 5C which has been very rewarding. Very friendly and quick service. Both on site and off site. Amazing how nearly all issues can be resolved remotely! Also they have setup CCTV, internal server and the latest, our emails cloud based. It is a huge relief to know that 5C know all the in’s and out of our IT and that they can fix any issues that arise. Also advise on any IT related query is only a phone call away!

— Dafydd Davies - Chief Executive – BIC Innovation - Bangor, Bridgend, London
When one of the partners left the firm, we soon realised that IT had been neglected in his care. We talked to 5c after speaking to a friend. Mike called and arranged a visit. His unhurried approach, listening rather than telling, plus a real grasp on what’s needed in the short, medium and long-term certainly set him apart from other firms we got quotes from. 5c came up with a cost-effective solution to getting our IT robust and sustainable and also used resources already at our disposal to save costs. We had Mike and the team in for two days in the New Year. They were a pleasure to have in the office as all our team we able to ask them questions about the system and get clear, jargon-free answers. We are now super-confident in our IT structure and thank 5c for helping us. We use them for ongoing support on a monthly contract and the peace of mind knowing we can call for anything, no matter how small really works for us.
— Huw Chance – Owner - Flomp LLP - Bristol
We have now been a customer of 5C since May 2015. They took over an outdated and somewhat temperamental computer system that had suffered years of underinvestment. Our experience of local IT companies was not good so it was refreshing to find a company that was friendly, professional and very very good at what they do. After an initial flurry of work we now have a system that is very reliable and fully supported. Should we have a glitch it is sorted out very quickly and you don’t need to be a computer whizz because 5C will access the machines remotely and do it all for you! Without doubt we would happily recommend 5C.
