Challenges & Objectives

Given the austerity measures imposed on the academic sector since 2010, and further impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19 in the early part of 2020, Boxgrove have found themselves in a financial situation similar to many, if not all, academic establishments across the UK in the reduction of their budgets. Boxgrove decided they would be creative with the way they spend and fund raise to keep their most important goal of providing an excellent teaching standard to the children who pass through their care, and have looked to monetise their facilities outside of school hours and help reduce the impact.

CARBON IT SERVICES were engaged to advise on, procure and realise solutions for the following business critical goals:

    • Transform the smaller Lunch Hall area from it’s currently singular purpose to a new Event space that can be hired for use by 3rd parties, by providing a presentation style space suitable for training courses, and visually-led seminars or classes.
    • Augment the larger Assembly Hall area to accommodate more professional or AV-intensive events more suited to audio presentations, larger gatherings and artistic/musical performances

Kind words from some of the wonderful people we get to work with…

“I had been looking to change my web hosting service for some time, having previously had a really poor customer service experience. Scott and Carbon IT Services have been amazing. My switch over to them was a quick, easy and pain-free experience. Scott has always been extremely professional and has dealt with all my queries promptly and without being patronising. They provide much more than just web hosting and are always immediately available to deal with any IT issues I may have. I’m delighted with the service being provided and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

Jo Luckman, Pilates with Jo

“Carbon IT Services designed and now host my website & email, and recently sponsored my community dance event in Guildford. The Carbon guys have made each part of the process really easy and they have been a pleasure to work with and have provided excellent support throughout. I would thoroughly recommend this professional and efficient company to anyone.”

Karen Palmer, Access Dance

“Amazing service. They put a kit together so that my family could FaceTime my 92year old Mum, who has never touched technology in her life. The kit arrived and they talked me through the set up, which was so easy (and I’m a technophobe). Mum has already had her first FaceTime session and loved it. I recommend them unreservedly!”

Rowena P, Crawley, West Sussex

“Fantastic Company! They have been so helpful. I was completely new to websites and they have walked me through the whole process. Easy to talk to and always keen to understand your business and what you need. Thoroughly recommend!”

Charlotte Chapman, Charlotte Chapman Yoga

“After having suffered 4 years of bad IT issues with my business website and blog, Carbon IT sorted everything for me very quickly and efficiently. It was so refreshing to be able to pick up the phone and speak to another human about what my issues were and get them all resolved! I have now transferred my hosting with them. Scott gave me the peace of mind I needed and the confidence that he knows exactly what he’s doing. I would definitely recommend Carbon IT!”

Anna Barling, All Sorts of Stories

“I was worried about my vulnerable mum’s house during the current COVID-19 lockdown, and not being able to monitor who was coming or going, and without Internet at my mum’s, thought I was stuck. Carbon IT Services provided me with a pre-configured 4G router and external CCTV camera bundle, and installed them whilst maintaining Social Distancing, allowing me to keep track of activity at the house from the comfort of my living room! And if the lockdown ends soon, and I don’t need it anymore, I can return the equipment for a partial refund too!”

Chris S, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

“Fantastic service! Our company needed a new website and the guys from Carbon IT Services were brilliant. They explained everything in great detail. They were keen to learn about our company so they could provide us with a website that was taylor made to our company. We are extremely happy with our website. The guys are only ever a phone call away and nothing is ever to much trouble for them. Thank you

Lisa Hurd, NP Tree Management

“I love my website designed and hosted by Carbon IT Services. It perfectly suits my style, is easy to manage, and has particularly powerful galleries which is important to me as a photographer. They also provide Office 365 which I use to run my business and an encrypted cloud backup solution so I can be sure my thousands of photos are safe and secure. Can’t recommend enough”

Scott Palmer, Scott David Photography

“We have had really bad signal in our house for years and never been able to connect to Netflix. Scott and the guys came over and reviewed our setup, made the changes needed and now we can connect and have signal throughout our home. Really recommend these guys. I’m not technical, just wanted it working and they took all the headache away quickly and efficiently. Also setup a brand new PC and transferred everything over for me effortlessly. Definitely be using this company again!”

Nikki F, Betchworth, Surrey

“Carbon IT Services helped with the easy transfer of my email account from another ISP making the process easy and simple. I now have OneDrive access and MS office with the package”

Richard Jackson, Scorpion Design And Communications

“Highly recommend these guys! I had a corrupt SD card and within a day of me sending it to them I had a download file with all my pictures on it. Fast, friendly and reliable! Great job, thanks!”
