About Us

The PC Support Group overview

The PC Support Group is an award winning company that provides high quality IT support to businesses in Manchester, Liverpool and throughout the northwest of England.

The business started in early 2006 in Liverpool with the goal of providing “corporate quality” IT support to small businesses without the associated high costs. In early 2007 the company was restructured and re-branded as The PC Support Group and today we serve hundreds of customers throughout the northwest from diverse sectors including Manufacturing, Finance, Healthcare, Leisure, Insurance and Marketing to name a few.

We have achieved this success through our unique structure which combines advanced support technology with local, friendly, professional delivery to provide a flexible, high quality service… at an affordable price. The unwavering focus of the business is to remove our client’s worries and concerns about their computers and anything that communicates with, runs on, or connects to them.

Our support technology enables us to monitor and manage all our client’s computers simultaneously and pro-actively work on them preventing problems before they occur – saving time and money. Most problems can be fixed remotely, often within minutes, but we also have engineers ready to visit clients when needed.

We don’t patronise our clients, we work with them to achieve their goals through technology, not despite it. And we don’t try to confuse with technical jargon. Our staff understand people and business, not just technology. The PC Support Group’s unique structure provides our clients with superb support and a level of service that is the envy of the industry.
