We support everything Apple
Clive Sweeting has been providing dedicated Apple Macintosh based support services to design companies, freelancers, small businesses, professional photographers, home users and education customers in Bath, Bristol, Wiltshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire and the West for over 10 years.
My primary focus is providing fast, efficient and expert technical support to my customers, primarily as on-site service and support, but often via telephone or remote diagnostics. Part of this service involves ongoing consultancy with my clients so future hardware and software purchases quickly and effectively integrate into their existing systems.
Starting off as a Mac user at University in 1990 with my much loved LC2, I have owned nearly 40 Macs and am currently using MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.2, Windows 7, Vista and XP, and a Powerbook G4 laptop with dual-boot capability, running OS 10.4.11, 10.2.8 and 9.2.2. The faithful Powerbook 3400C is occasionally used to service a Beige G3 and SCSI based Macs.A ‘Hackintosh’ NUC acts as a file server and media streamer, and sometimes we fire up our “Tiger” server for VPN server duties or to assist troubleshooting a customer’s OS X 10.2 , 10.3 or 10.4 Server installation.
I always have a PC or two running Windows 7, Vista, XP, or a Linux distribution. Many of my customers are working in mixed platform environments and I don’t believe in “just” working on Macs. My clients need to use and collaborate using Windows and want a turnkey solution to all their Mac centred IT requirements. Hence I support OS 9, OS X, Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP and the occasional Linux server.
A Complete solution
I believe I offer an unbeatable combination of expertise, enthusiasm, flexibility, speed and quality of service. You won’t be paying £65 per hour or have to bring your computers to me. I work at your premises, at your convenience, to your deadlines and often at silly hours or short notice.
So if you want someone who knows his ADB from his elbow, his PRAM from his preferences, and doesn’t think that the OS X Terminal is an American airport, please pick up the phone and call.
We make great websites
Whether you want a simple landing page, a bespoke web application or a complex eCommerce website, Sweet-Apple can help. We create visually attractive, fast-loading, search engine friendly sites that add real value to your business.
Quality sites, sensible prices, friendly service
Every site we make, from the smallest to largest, is carefully considered to provide the maximum value for the available budget. If you need to be able to update the site yourself, we create Content Managment Systems and eCommerce sites that use WordPress, Drupal, Magento, or create develop web applications using Zend Framework.
We maximise traffic to your site
All our sites are created so that they are as search-engine friendly as possible, but we can take this further by researching and developing Search Engine Optimisation strategies that drive targeted traffic to your business.
We partner with designers and agencies
If you’re a designer or agency we can help you strengthen your on-line offering. We have years of experience of working with agencies to take their ideas and convert them quickly and efficiently into websites, emails and marketing campaigns that will delight your clients.
So if you need an experienced freelance developer to act as your tame code-monkey, please get in touch…
