Our ClientsWhat They Have To Say
I have been using the services of Next Century Consulting for a little over a year. They were referred to me by a client of the accounting practice that I had recently purchased. Setting up a business with new software, multi-user functions and internet connections and security was always going to be a challenge for me until I met Nigel. Not to mention the fact he also created a whole new website within hours.
Nigel is extremely friendly, approachable and speaks in terms that even a non-IT person can understand. I have followed all of Nigel’s recommendations and have faith in his ability to monitor and improve my systems constantly. First and foremost though, he is contactable and replies as soon as possible.
I am forever grateful for the referral I received and would not hesitate to highly recommend Nigel’s services, which I have done so to my clients.
Nigel from Next Century has been providing IT service to our company for the last five years. He is an extremely integral part of the efficient running of our business keeping our computers fully serviced and updated monthly. He is always available to assist remotely when the need arises. He is very approachable, and no question or situation is too minor to call him for. Nigel is so pleasant and always willing to be of service assisting us also in our choices of appropriate laptops, computers and software. I highly recommend him, and the service provided by his company.
I have been using the services of Next Century for many years.
Nigel has amazing knowledge in the IT field, he has helped me with the many and varied problems I have experienced, so easily and stress free that I have no hesitation in recommending Next Century to everyone looking for “peace of mind support” from an expert who will look after all your problems for you, both remotely and if necessary, in person.
I have been a client of Next Century for over 10 years and during that time Nigel has provided me with invaluable assistance.
Over those years Nigel has consistently aided me in solving the issues that invariably occur with my computers, peripherals and software and I have complete confidence in relying on his extensive expertise in dealing with any IT problem or query that I present him with. The website is informative and easy is to navigate and the timely response to any inquiry is commendable. Having a Monthly Support Plan gives me piece of mind as this ensures my system is kept up to date and maintained. Nigel’s affable nature and patience make dealing with him a pleasure and the service he provides is invaluable.
I know that whenever I have the need to contact him I can always rely on an honest assessment and resolution. I recommend Next Century without reservation and feel thankful that I have found a service that fulfills its brief. Thank you Nigel.
