Hardware and Software

We work with our carefully selected partners and providers to ensure we offer you hardware and software applications that are managed and supported by us, fit for purpose and competitively priced, with the right SLA arrangements.

When it comes to deploying an infrastructure to our customers the hardware we use is as important to us as the design we put together, the methodology of deployment and how we support you on an on-going basis.

The same applies when deploying our software, we work with you to ensure any software installed is achieved in accordance with your policy and our industry legislation, both of which is done in consultation with you.

What is hardware and software?

Computer hardware is any physical device used in or with your machine, whereas software is a collection of code installed onto your computer's hard drive; it is intangible. For example, the computer monitor you are using to read this text and the mouse you are using to navigate this web page is computer hardware. The Internet browser that allowed you to visit this page and the operating system that the browser is running on is considered software.

In a computer, hardware is what makes a computer work. A CPU processes information and that information can be stored in RAM or on a hard drive. A sound card can provide sound to speakers and a video card can provide an image to a monitor. All of this is hardware.

On that same computer, software can be installed and allow a person to interact with the hardware. An operating system, like Windows or Mac OS, is software. It provides a graphical interface for people to use the computer and other software on the computer. A person can create documents and pictures using software.

What are the benefits of new software?

Upgrading your business' software is more than just an economic business decision. It is a matter of security, productivity, lower costs, and employee morale. For example, new computer software could:

  • • Improve your business efficiency
  • • Reduce costs by automating routine tasks
  • • Keeps track of progress in your business
