About the employer

True MSP was formed to offer a fresh approach to IT support and services. After networking with numerous business owners it became clear to Tim and Neil, True MSP’s founders that although there are several companies offering IT services, many were leaving their clients frustrated with slow response times and poor customer service. Some of the larger support companies lost their personal touch, offering their clients a ticket number rather than a real person to deal with. Something True MSP will never do!

By focusing on simplicity and only partnering with a handful of the world’s best IT software and hardware vendors we know you’re getting the best IT experience possible. Our team know all of the products inside and out, are passionate about IT and understand the value of great customer service.

We don’t expect our staff to be at their best without making sure they have a great environment to work in. Every member of the team has a fast workstation with large crystal clear screens, the comfiest telephone headset, high quality ergonomic chair and big desk. Our office is open-plan and bright with the focus being on collaboration and communication.

We’ve invested in the most efficient support CRM software and remote desktop tools to allow our team to quickly connect, diagnose and resolve support issues.  We firmly believe giving our team the best equipment and investing in our systems, creates a happier and more productive team. Knowing our team is happy means they will provide you and your organisation with the best customer service and IT management experience possible.
