About First Stop

At First Stop IT we specialise in supporting small to medium sized businesses with their technology requirements. We pride ourselves on consistently providing unparalleled award-winning outsourced IT support, systems management and monitoring, backup, disaster recovery and much more. As one of Britain’s Top 50 Best Managed IT Companies, our aim is to provide a first class service to all our clients in order to help them get the best out of their technology.  Using the highest calibre products and by being proactive rather than reactive ensures that we help to prevent computer problems becoming an issue. All of our well established professional engineers receive rigorous training to ensure that they provide the level of service you expect and are CRB/DBS checked, meaning that we can work in premises where children or vulnerable adults are present. Our team has been ensuring the smooth running of business IT systems for the past 15 years by taking on the responsibilities of a traditional internal IT department.

“I have worked on a number of clients’ projects with Tai and First Stop IT. I have always found Tai to be a talented IT system designer who listens to the business needs of his clients to ensure that the final solution fully meets their requirements.

He has in depth knowledge of server & desktop hardware, Microsoft software, and range of security, backup, and cloud services. Tai is able to easily communicate and explain these services and features to others who do not have technical background.

With the backing of an excellent team of engineers at First Stop IT, I found their service to be fast and professional with great on-going support.”
