What our customers say

Access Manawatu has been a client of Firecrest Systems for over 5 years, starting with the development of a new website. We were impressed with the care and attention Firecrest took to understand our business, our requirements and what we wanted to convey to our online visitors. We also highly value the ongoing support provided throughout the sites life. Updates and new ideas are embraced and worked through to allow Access Manawatu to continue to offer a vibrant and engaging online experience, seamlessly linking in with our Social Media and On Demand content.
It was with this positive experience in mind that we took up the Firecrest Managed Devices Service in 2015. Again, they were attentive to our somewhat unique requirements and understood the implications of our various software choices. As such we are pleased to have robust systems in place, and redundancy options that – as a charity – we never thought would be possible.
In summary, Firecrest Systems offer a small, yet highly talented and friendly team to support us in all things IT. We cannot recommend theom highly enough. Fraser Greig, Station Manager, Access Manawatu 999AM
