About Us and Why We Started Technology Tamed
When Glen Mansbridge founded Technology Tamed in 1995 he felt strongly that there were too many IT professionals bamboozling people and businesses. He wanted to help individuals and businesses ‘tame their technology’. With Technology Tamed it is not about us, but about you and your goals.
His ethos is that we should always consider ourselves part of your ‘team’, not just a ‘supplier’. It is not the technology that excites us, but how we can use it to enable your people and business to work better, easier, more efficiently, more competitively.
About Us: The Directors
Before starting Technology Tamed, I worked in support environment, firstly for Hewlett Packard and then Philips, followed by a four-year stint working in the NHS. Working in such roles made me appreciate the importance of high-quality IT support. Including the need to remain calm, be professional at all times and always endeavour to deliver what is promised. I realised that IT support is as much about people as technology. The ability to remove the stress and angst caused by technology not behaving itself is something that I have always derived much satisfaction from!
My ethos is to ensure my clients are looked after to the best of our abilities and that attitude is shared by all of us at Technology Tamed. Most of our clients have been with us for many, many years and new clients for whom we believe we can make a real, positive difference to their IT are always welcome!
I love IT support as good IT support makes lives easier. Reducing irritating problems, making computers and systems work faster and more efficiently. Empowering people to use their computers with confidence.
I believe the key to excellent IT is listening, working out what your IT skills are and giving you the best IT solution for you individually. Whether that is by installing new technology, helping you manage your existing IT, providing training. Or, on occasion, helping people understand and overcome the limitations of the technology they are using.
Through the 20+ years since jointly starting Technology Tamed with Glen, I have seen the difference great IT can make to the lives of people. Especially as everyone nowadays are so dependent on their computers, tablets, smart phones and Internet to function.
