Overview

Our unique Zed Blocks packages: complete Support IT, pay-as-you-go IT Help, 24/7/365 business IT Helpdesk from only £10 per case.

Zed Blocks are prepaid blocks of IT support time. They are rather like a pay-as-you-go mobile phone tariff, but instead of buying airtime, you buy IT support time.

There are no monthly fees. Instead you purchase an initial package of Zed Blocks which entitle you to expert IT support whenever you need it. Afterwards, you simply top-up with more Zed Blocks.

You can use Zed Blocks for just about any IT related task, whether it’s routine administration or resolving an emergency. It covers servers, networks, desktops, laptops, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile Messenger, email, internet connectivity, VOIP and Microsoft software and operating systems.

Our expert engineers are available 24/7/365 and respond immediately when it’s an emergency. Our technology enables us to resolve over 90% of problems remotely, but when you need onsite assistance, that’s available too.

Zed Blocks are comprehensive enough to give your business all the IT support it needs. But they are also flexible and so can be combined with one of our Contract Support packages, or with an in-house IT department, for cost-effective out-of-office hours protection.

Q: Why do I have to sign Terms & Conditions?

A: ZED Blocks Terms & Conditions are designed to protect your business. They specify exactly what is covered and not covered within the ZED Blocks service.

Q: Am I charged the same amount of ZED Blocks regardless of the time of day/night I require IT support?
