Dave Allen, Head of Marketing & Sales, Everyman Theatre


“Smart have been working with the Everyman Theatre since February 2000. This has been a period of rapid growth and development for us as a business and our reliance on new technology. There is no doubt that this development has been greatly aided by the cooperation and support of Tim, Will and the team at Smart.
They have responded quickly and effectively to our enquiries and have displayed great understanding of our particular needs as an organisation. They have also, importantly, worked well with the different departments and members of staff to ensure that everyone feels supported and has the appropriate level of understanding of the technology they use. We continue to enjoy an excellent working relationship with all at Smart Computers.”  March 2014

Carol Hannis, Dynamic Sales Solutions Ltd

“I have to say how impressed I’ve been with the service from Smart Computers. Every single team member has been brilliant and explain everything fully as they go along. A couple of the decisions made by Smart have been game changing as regards to how we work in our business. The responsiveness with any issues is very prompt and they are always friendly, yet professional.

I can’t thank the Smart guys enough. Great job and would wholly recommend as a solid, no nonsense, reliable company to work with.”

Laura Thomas, Office Manager, Alltimes Coatings

“I LOVE smart. They look after all our tech, installing apps, they buy the Outlook licence for us and maintain our malware. They are very responsive and answer the phone immediately and always sort it out there & then.

Yesterday one of their guys was setting up a new e-mail for a new starter and even thought to ask if we wanted her signature added the same as ours, something we hadn’t considered. 

We had previously mentioned that the printer kept cutting out, they sorted it quickly and since came back with another tweak because they were concerned what they had done wouldn’t be a full fix. We all thought it was perfect before. Can’t praise them enough. Such a relief not to worry about tech!” March 2022

So I called Smart as they do the maintenance of my employer’s computers and they have always been friendly, trustworthy and reliable. And boy did I not make a mistake, not only were they professional, honest, reliable and trustworthy, they were GREAT value for money! Thank you so much to Curtis and the team, you guys have been a lifesaver! :-)” April 2021

Overall, it was great service and I would highly recommend Smart Computers!” August 2020

Debbie Choi

“Cracked my laptop screen and the people at smart computers were really helpful. Pricing was well explained with phone calls updating me on where they were with the process of fixing my screen so they could give me a realistic time frame. Once they had sourced and ordered the correct screen, they did a good job repairing my laptop in a good amount time. Would highly recommend.” July 2020

Smart Computers is my first port of call if ever I have an issue and recently they came to my aid once more.

Anonymous testimonial from a customer in the Training Sector

“We recently ran a one day IT training course where we needed to hire an Apple Mac to support the course.

I would definitely recommend the service to my colleagues in the future.” June 2017

Paula Duffield, PA to the Directors – Cotswold Farm Park

”We began working with Smart Computers in April 2013. As we expanded, our previous IT Consultant was struggling to offer the service we needed. Smart were based locally and could guarantee 7 day a week support from a knowledgeable and enthusiastic team.

We received a full IT audit, and Smart continue to make recommendations for improvements to our infrastructure, ensuring that our equipment stays up-to-date. We have unlimited remote support, a 2-hour onsite health check per month, out-of-office support to cover weekends and bank holidays and Smart Max Pro-Active remote monitoring, to ensure that any issues are picked up quickly before we realise there is a problem. Smart currently support all our existing purchased equipment, however future plans involve taking advantage of Smart’s rental options rather than future investment in new equipment.

Smart have always been extremely helpful and pro-active in finding solutions to any issues which have arisen. We are about to embark on major new building developments at both the Cotswold Farm Park and the working farm. We are delighted that Smart will be involved from the start, to ensure that any new infrastructure is suitable for our needs, both now and in the future.

Communication is the key element for any business nowadays and we believe that Smart offers real value for money, for such reliable support. Our Smart technician Clayton carries out our monthly on-site support and knows our system inside out, which is of real benefit to us. We really appreciate seeing the same engineer at each visit. Everyone in the office is extremely helpful whenever we have the need to telephone and if there is a problem with any computer we are always made welcome if we pop in to Smart Offices in Cheltenham.

We would highly recommend Smart to other businesses looking for a friendly, informed team to support all their IT needs.” October 2016

Victoria Bridges, Baxter Healthcare Ltd

‘We were hosting a customer workshop in Norwich and needed the laptops for a hands-on training session with our customers in the afternoon.

We normally hold these workshops in hotels that offer laptop renting facilities. However, this workshop in particular was being held at a customer site (in a hospital) and therefore we needed to provide the equipment ourselves as no laptop hiring facilities were available.

We had a fantastic experience with Smart Computers. We were supplied with 6 laptops – all laptops were the same make and model, which helped to reduce the amount of time we spent setting them up. All the machines powered up very quickly and were immediately ready to use. This meant we didn’t need any technical support on the day, we could just power on the machines, log on to the internet and get started with our training session. This helped to ensure we received good feedback from our customers when we asked them how the day went. I also felt that the service offered to us was very good value for money.   

I chose Smart because they are local to our office. You provided a very quick service from providing the initial quote to actually delivering the laptops to our office. We requested them at very short notice but you were able to meet all our needs. It was completely hassle-free on our end.

Excellent service and support. Very attentive and professional. I would strongly recommend Smart Computers to other businesses. We have decided that should we go back to holding our workshops in a hotel setting, we will be using Smart Computers to hire laptops rather than the AV supplier that is provided to us by the hotel.’ October 2016


Pete Riley, Systems Manager at Cheltenham Festivals

‘We’re lucky to have a local company with the capacity to rent large numbers of laptops for short periods. We get up-to-date PCs delivered to the door from a friendly and extremely supportive supplier, it’s a great relationship. It goes a long way to ensuring the success of our temporary festival box offices as we prep ourselves for selling tickets at our annual Jazz, Science, Music and Literature festivals in Cheltenham each year.’ October 2016

Leanne Hewish, Glastonbury Festival Events Limited

‘During the Glasonbury festival, we have a requirement for more IT equipment than we would normally need throughout the year. This year we used the Smart Computers rental service to hire additional laptops before, during and after the event. The price was really competitive and the spec and options of the rental kit available matched what we needed and we knew they could get the equipment to us at short notice. We were so pleased we chose Smart Computers. Easy to deal with, lovely staff and great customer service. Just what we needed during a really busy time. We would definitely recommend Smart to other businesses and will be using them again in the future.’ September 2016

Mike Goode, Director – GB Solutions

Guy Warner, Store Owner – Warners Retail Ltd

“As it frequently happens, we were recommended to use Smart Computers services by another local business as they are cost effective and personable.

Working with Smart is like having your own in-house IT department.

For a people perspective, the team are all very personable and feel like an integral part of the team not external contractors.

Dave Ryland, Financial Director – Warners Motor Group

“It was important for us when choosing an IT provider to ensure it was a local company, not a remote company just on the end of a phone. We wanted to talk to people, to see people and for them to be responsive and understand our needs, we got just that. We haven’t looked back and have now been working with Smart for many years.

Smart provide us with IT equipment which we rent, we also use their support services. We have been happy with their engineers and the overall service has been very good. I don’t foresee an end to the relationship any time soon, it’s been a pleasure.” May 2016

Tom Spittle, Business Development Manager – Pro Clean Solutions

“Smart Computers have provided support for our desktops and Office for 3-4 years. We feel these services are great value for money for what we need. On the rare occasions we have problems, they are logged and resolved quickly and efficiently without fuss. Their engineers are helpful over the phone and the remote log in works really well. We’re also a fan of Johnny, our engineer who has been really useful onsite. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Smart Computers to other companies with IT needs like ours.” May 2016

Kate Emery, Director – Nick Griffith Estate Agents

‘Nick Griffith Estate Agents have been using Smart’s services for 2 years, after they came highly recommended by a good friend.  Our requirements have evolved over the years, starting with their support and email hosting package they have since set us up with our own digital cloud, provided advice and solutions to enable day to day efficiency, helped us move to new premises making sure we were ready to go on our first day there and we will soon start using Smart’s cloud backup service.  Smart also advise us on which IT equipment we need and purchase on our behalf.

I really enjoy working with Smart Computers, they are always so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.  They go above and beyond to get you where you want to be and they provide invaluable advice along the way, making potentially stressful processes really easy and straight forward.  I honestly don’t know what we’d do without Smart.  If you’re after quality service and great value for money, then we would most definitely recommend Smart Computers.’ May 2016
