We understand that you want your IT to “just work” so you can concentrate on running your business. We pride ourselves on providing professional and friendly services.|
Advice and recommendations Are you not sure what to do to achieve a goal or solve a problem? We can advise you on what technology could be employed to help you, but without blinding you with terminology. Just by examining your systems and business processes, we can often make recommendations for improvements that you may not have spotted yourself.
On-site support We can visit you to resolve problems that require a hands-on approach. We don’t charge you a call-out fee and are happy to support your staff in your premises.
Remote support We can resolve a great many issues by remotely connecting to your system, giving you a faster and more efficient service. This is very secure and means we can respond quickly and you don’t have to wait for us to visit you.
Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac Whether you use Microsoft Windows, Apple Macs or both, we can help you. There’s no need to go for one or the other platform, we can integrate both on the same network and share data, printers and other resources between them. Getting support for your Mac is not always as easy as for a Windows PC – but it just got a lot easier.
Westward IT is owned and operated by local professionals, who together have over forty years experience in IT and have worked for some of the largest employers in North Devon. Have a look at our testimonials to see what our satisfied clients have to say.
The iPhone is a phenomenal success. It has the most revolutionary multi-touch interface and has transformed the mobile phone market forever. It's changed the way we stay connected and everybody loves it. Now with the iPad and iPod Touch, the combination of pioneering hardware and the world's most advanced mobile operating system means the number of available Apps is staggering. But there's always room for more great ideas.
Why a Westward IT App?
We are committed to the world of iPhone app development and are a registered member of the Apple iOS Development Program. We are, therefore, entitled to have access to Apple's latest development utilities and operating system features. This also means you don't need to be a member of the program yourself. We use iPhones ourselves, plus supply and support iPads so we are very familiar with the way these devices are used every day - we are proficient in taking advantage of the unique features of the platform. We have extensive development experience so you'll be working with experts.
Tell us your ideas.
Is there something you'd love to be able to do with your iPhone, but you can't find a way of making it happen? Tell us all about it, whether it's just for yourself, something to make your business more efficient or your classroom more engaging. We work closely with you to design and implement an app to do exactly what you need with impelling graphics, internet and multimedia features. Apps can be developed for many purposes:
Health & Fitness
Ideas become reality
We build your app following Apple's established interface guidelines - an app needs to work visually as well as functionally and we keep the look and feel of the app at the forefront of the design. No detail is too small and it's never to late to get it just right.
We go all the way
Once we've created your app and you're happy with the result, we can either distribute it to your own iPhones and iPads or submit it to the App Store for you. We will compile the corresponding documentation making your app available to countess Apple mobile device users globally.
Are you ready to transform your app idea into reality? Do you want to engage the huge number of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users via your very own mobile application? Contact us today to help you into this exciting new world.
Recommended App Development
"I recently commissioned Westward IT to build an iPhone application for my webstore, The Crafty Kitten to calculate fabric sizes for different sized stitched designs. I am incredibly pleased with the resulting app. The app is very user friendly and looks excellent, matching in with the theme of the website. Westward IT were a pleasure to work with, consulting with me frequently on the progress of the app and making changes as necessary. I would not hesitate to use them again."
| The environment is fast changing for schools, with a new government and a new direction, but the need for quality ICT systems and ICT support is as strong as ever. We can help you make the right choices for your ICT. We have been able to take our extensive technical experience to assist schools. Schools have responded favourably and providing ICT services for schools in North Devon have become a growing direction for Westward IT over the last two years. We are therefore committed to our educational presence. |
Advice and recommendations Are you not sure what to do to achieve a goal or solve a problem? We can advise you on what technology could be employed to help you, but without blinding you with terminology. Just by examining your systems and the way you run your school, we can often make recommendations for improvements that you may not have spotted yourself.
New technologies Today, technology is going beyond the keyboard and mouse. Many schools are also moving away from traditional computer labs, where the technology is segregated from everyday learning, in favour of mobile devices in classrooms. The new generation of touch-based tablet devices, such as the Apple iPad, open a new world of possibilities for teaching in a new way. We have extensive experience of Apple’s mobile devices. Let us help you harness these new technologies and put you in control through reading eBooks, online research, presenting, creating artwork, taking notes, digital storytelling, playing and making music and promoting creativity.
Bespoke software Do you have a problem that doesn’t seem to have a solution? Let us design and implement bespoke software for you. From a secure classroom menu system, to a full-featured database application for you and your staff, we can help.
Sharing and communicating Cost effective and efficient communication is a key factor in modern life. Has your school grown to the point of needing its own email solution? We can supply and configure your very own email server and help you transfer all your old emails to it. We can provide a system fully integrated with anti-virus and anti-spam to keep you user’s mailbox free of potentially harmful content and junk. We can also help you extend your functionality with collaboration features such as school-wide calendaring for arranging events, meetings and managing appointments.
Remote access Being able to work from anywhere has become a vital part of our modern lifestyles. Accessing your school’s data securely through the internet, even when you are at home or travelling is very empowering. It’s something that many businesses have had for years, but schools have been left behind. We can help you. We have had a great deal of positive feedback where we have implemented this. You no longer have to remember to copy those lessons plans onto a mobile storage device or your laptop to take them home - just access them as and when you need to from home. Share up-to-date information with parents and governors who would otherwise have to rely on being emailed or even posted. It’s using the power of the internet to improve the way you work.
If you would like to become part of our growing list of satisfied customers, please feel free to contact us.
