Managed IT Support

In North Wales & the North West

Why Managed IT Support?

IT is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of any business. Whilst we all recognise its value, recruiting and managing internal IT teams is challenging and a big investment, especially for small businesses. 

For the lucky businesses that have IT teams, you’ll know they’re worth their weight in gold, but it’s impossible to know everything. Our Managed IT Support team here at Risc train for over 150 hours collectively each week to keep all their knowledge up to date! For a small team of one or two IT professionals, keeping on top of licences, being proactive rather than reactive, understanding ever changing product capabilities, and maintaining absolute security becomes an impossible task, regardless of how brilliant your team is.

This is where we come in. Managed IT Support relieves these headaches. It means you have access to a full team of dedicated technical experts whenever you need them to implement, manage and help with all aspects of IT, so that you know your employees can work easily and effectively from the office or at home and your business is secure from cyber threats.

Where we cover

We offer our Managed IT Support packages to companies across North Wales and the North West, typically working with companies between 30 and 100 employees.

Why just North Wales and the North West? That’s simple. We embrace Hybrid working and whilst you’ll find us in our Headquarters in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, our staff are dotted across the country all the way to Manchester. That way, on the rare occasions things do go wrong, we’re close by and ready to respond quickly and efficiently.

What we do

We operate as your outsourced IT Department. This means we proactively manage and maintain your Desktops, Laptops, Servers and Network Infrastructure. During this process we will provide a technical run book of IT Infrastructure, this includes providing end user guides and user onboarding forms so everything is documented and auditable. This gives you clarity on everything you have, how people are using it, and also gives us the tools to efficiently manage everything for you.

Furthermore by onboarding our services, we can assist your business to obtain Cyber Essentials+ certification – aside from reductions to Cyber Insurance and general peace of mind, this demonstrates to your customers that you value their data and treat it with the utmost respect.

Audit and Assess

As part of the onboarding process, we undertake a site survey to identify any end of life hardware / software. This will form an initial project plan to replace any outdated items.

Secure Onboard

This is when the proactive IT support kicks in. We deploy our Management tools which enables us to monitor your endpoints 24/7 allowing our technicians to fix many issues before you even notice, giving you peace of mind.


We then utilise our product knowledge to ensure the systems used are fully utilised, and operating at their most efficient. By using our monitoring tools we can identify any fault patterns and implement the correct fix, allowing your IT Infrastructure to work at its optimal capacity.

Certify (CE+)

By completing these stages your company will be in a fit state to acheive the Cyber Essentials+ standard. This is accredited by a third party assessor, so you can demonstrate that you value your customers’ data.

Proactive Support

We provide everything you need to be Secure, Productive & Agile. And with ongoing proactively managed IT support, we address any issues before you even know about them. With fixed costs and a service level agreement to rely on, you can be reassured that we’ll keep your IT systems at their best so you can focus on what you do.

Right from the outset Risc IT listened to our issues and requirements and sculpted our entire IT setup. Due to the sensitive nature of our work and the real-life impact it has on our service users, Risc really respected that every decision made had to be considered, and needed to provide strong foundations for the future.

Having completed the work, a testament to its success was supported by the assessor for CyberEssentials+ who complimented us on the maturity of our IT Infrastructure. This is especially important for us as CyberEssentials+ is a key requirement for funding, as well as a measure of how seriously we take the security and confidentiality of our data.
