Benefits of dealing with Vivid:
- Wide skill base – our qualified staff have a wide range of skills right from hardware, software, network and connectivity issues, web and software development. Our staff spends a considerable amount of time keeping up with the ever-changing IT scene.
- Flexible and responsive approach – We are able to respond quickly and have ability to come up with an approach to solve most issues in the most cost effective manner possible without compromising quality
- Vendor independence – we can source and supply just about any brand of equipment and we are not motivated by which brand makes us the most money, rather by which equipment will do the best job and provide the best overall value for money for our clients. We have extensive experience and know which brands and models of equipment have the best reliability.
- Reasonably priced yet reliable – we believe our pricing is very reasonable given the extent of our skill and knowledge base. Whilst we are not the cheapest in the market the old adage “You get what you pay for” is quite relevant in the IT industry. We often see the results of other providers work which hasn’t been done properly.
- Friendly approach – our staff are used to dealing with people from every level of computer skills (right from barely able to turn the computer on, to people who know as much as we do), so we know there is no question which is too stupid and feel your staff should not be too scared to call us for fear of sounding dumb.

- Experience – we have extensive experience designing and implementing solutions and ongoing support for small businesses and non profit organisations.
- Availability of other resources – we have developed a network of extra resources and reliable subcontractors in specialist areas that we can call upon to assist on projects as needed.
