Apple Support & Consultancy

Purple Computing Mini

Our Apple consultants and support engineers have over 50 years of combined IT experience. We provide our customers with the best of that knowledge.

Our engineers are based in Southampton, Exeter, Bristol and Reading, covering all of the South and South-West of England, plus South Wales. This also gives us good links to Surrey, the western Home Counties and a small but growing client base in central London.

Our engineers can be booked for one-off or regular site visits.

When we’re not working onsite, our network of engineers joins together to provide remote and telephone support to our clients.
