A remote computer support service is available. If needed, Colbek Systems support staff can dial into your computer system and provide assistance with computer problems and software faults. The remote support service allows us to solve a variety of problems very quickly and efficiently.

Evening/Weekend Support

Support can be arranged for evenings or at weekends to cover special projects requiring the assistance of Colbek personnel via the telephone or on-site. Call us if you need help with cabling, server installation, PC installation and setting up, or software installation.

On-Site Support/Troubleshooting

Available to companies requiring assistance in solving problems on their computer systems. We provide annual support agreements which cover all aspects of IT management or simple one-off visits for specific issues.

A typical Hardware and software maintenance contract

An annual fee provides a fast response to problems with computer systems and related hardware, fault diagnosis, and loan equipment in the event of machine failure.

This system has proved popular among our customers. Most standard warranties and support contracts cover repairs to the hardware only. The disadvantage is that if the server hard disk were to fail or become corrupted the network operating system would need to be re-installed.

Following a hardware fault the customer may then be faced with spending hours on the telephone trying to re-install or reconfigure software. Our engineers are used to dealing with both hardware and software faults. The maintenance service covers everything that is needed to get the user working.

Level of support

In all cases we will provide telephone support with software or hardware problems and on-site support in the event that problems cannot be solved over the telephone.


In some cases your hardware will be covered under the manufacturers warranty. Loan equipment will be supplied, while repairs are undertaken by the manufacturer/supplier.

New equipment and setting up associated with new equipment is considered to be new work and will be charged at our usual hourly rate. Once setting up is complete then we will be pleased to include the equipment in our maintenance agreement.

When computer settings have been changed by users, resulting in system failure, we reserve the right to make a charge for repair (with prior agreement).

Consumables are not classed as maintenance e.g. Laser printer toner, fuser roller, drum.

Resolution of Internet and Email problems caused by the Internet Service Provider or telecoms carrier will be charged at our prevailing hourly rate.
Preparatory survey

Disaster Recovery
A full back up of your system will be taken and maintained at our premises together with a set of hardware that can be used to make your system fully operational in the minimum of time. To ensure that we suffer the minimum delay, we will visit and perform a ‘dry run’ to simulate our actions in the event of a disaster on the server and so that we are aware of any potential problems.

Prior to commencing the contract we will perform a survey of your hardware and ensure that we hold suitable loan equipment at our premises to ensure fast recovery and minimise downtime.
Ongoing system support

Periodic visits will be made to monitor the running of systems and to advise where necessary on updates, procedures, and potential areas of failure.

We cover Nuneaton, Coventry, Birmingham, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Stratford upon Avon, Rugby, Daventry, Atherstone, Tamworth, Hinckley, Lutterworth and surrounding areas throughout East Midlands and West Midlands.
