“We don’t deal in off the shelf solutions – our clients all have individual needs”

We are the NetworkMods

The Mods

For the best part of a 15 years, we at NetworkMods have been proud to deliver IT support for a range of small to medium sized businesses. We’re based in Cambridge, but the scope of our activity extends to further afield, including London.

All the directors work directly with clients to make sure the technical direction of our services remains appropriate and effective. Our highly skilled support staff are chosen for their experience, technical competence and people skills. They are particularly adept at supporting products designed to enhance the IT environment for small and medium sized businesses.

Clients

Very often we deliver complex, specialised services to large companies. But typically, our clients are enterprising and successful small to medium sized businesses. They are large enough to demand a serious IT infrastructure, but not at a scale that requires full-time staff in-house.

Approach

Flexibility, flexibility and flexibility. That, in a nutshell, is what drives our approach to client service. We understand that companies that are compact in size need to be agile and not weighed down with heavy, unwieldy systems and processes. Fast, lithe and effective is preferred, and that is what we deliver.

Tailoring is key. At the outset of any client relationship, we sit down to establish the things that are most important to you – then build a service around them. You will be assigned a technical and account manager, with the former acting as your main point of contact. When businesses evolve and trading conditions alter, our service will respond swiftly to any updates, changes or developments.

Our clients enjoy the peace of mind knowing that they can easily adjust their requirements without financial penalty. We meanwhile, are motivated to provide the best service possible as the client’s business grows. Customer retention is vital to our lifeblood, and our staff are incentivised to ensure it.
