How we work

We get to know our clients, taking the time to understand their needs. It's all about finding the right IT systems and solutions for today, tomorrow and the future.

We bring your IT to life

Every company is different. That’s why we get to know our customers first. Before we recommend any IT solutions, systems or services we want to know more about your business goals – what you need to happen. This focus on higher level requirements means we can ensure we deliver exactly what you need and that it works well for you. We’ve created a detailed audit process that can look at your current IT solutions, and future requirements. From this, we create a detailed report of our findings, presenting it to you alongside our recommendations for what we know will work best for your business.

Our ethos is centred around trust and transparency. We will never sell IT solutions unless we believe – as engineers – that it is the right system for you. We always recommend tried and tested solutions, whether that be cloud, servers or software, and we are always ready to test new products first, to ensure they meet your needs. Take a look at the process we follow.

Our process

step one


We’ll take the time to get to know you before referring you onto one of our engineers, who will start to understand your business, your IT systems and support needs.

Step Two


After spending time to understand your requirements, we conduct a complimentary audit of your IT systems, looking in depth at your needs and your future requirements.

Stage Three


We will create a list of recommendations, working in line with your budgetary requirements. Together we can create a strategy that can help create more efficient systems and save you money.

Step Four


All our IT systems are implemented in line with industry best practice. We are able to source and purchase software or hardware from dedicated suppliers, helping you save money, all thanks to our accreditations and existing relationships.

Step Five


We build upon and strengthen our relationships, with regular reviews, helping to ensure all your systems run as they should 365 days a year. This provides that added peace of mind that your IT is always in safe hands.

Our support

Our IT support is tailored to our customers’ specific needs. We don’t offer packages, as we know that one-size doesn’t fit all. Each business is different, and thats why we put together the components that work for you. This means you only ever pay for features you need and use. We offer many different services and support options and you can add and remove them any time to best fit your needs.

These start with Pay-As-You-Go, through flexible block hour purchases, to fully managed services.  All of these options are available with either the basic service level or premium guaranteed. Take a look at some of the ways our customers work with us.

  • Pay As You Go
  • Block hours
  • Managed IT services

Pay As You Go

We can provide remote and on-site support to your business as and when you need it. Our IT support is fast, reliable and jargon free. Our holistic approach means we take time to diagnose the problem, establishing the best path of action quickly and effectively. We can then react accordingly, pulling in the right expertise for the project.

Our premium service level agreements provide guaranteed response times. We have options for standard, extended and 24/7 support via our helpdesk, which is operated by experienced staff. We ensure all our staff are constantly learning and updating qualifications to ensure we are able to deliver results quickly and effectively.  Piran Engineers operate on a three tier system, which means we always have skilled members of the team with expertise in different areas on hand, meaning the solution is always closer than you think.

Block hours

Block hours can help small to medium businesses manage their IT costs more effectively. Whether this is for remote support, one off projects or site visits, block hours gives you ultimate flexibility and control on what you are spending.

How does it work? You buy a block of time, which can be used or saved as you wish. There’s no expiry or time limit on the hours bought, and the more you buy, the more you save. Many of our clients enjoy this option, as it allows them to remain in control as well as providing the reassurance that we are there, if you need us.
