SALFORD LAD STARTS NEW COMPUTERMEND ONLINE SERVICE
 

Star date: 11th September 2016

ONLINE COMPUTER REPAIR SERVICE

Salford lad, Ali Lijee, has started a new computer repair service, ComputerMend, an online site which aims to provide hardware and software support for small and medium sized businesses, and home computer users.

Basically, you go on the site, enter your postcode and it finds a choice of nearest technicians who will come to your door or fix remotely, or you can take the computer to their premises.

ComputerMend is a new website set up by Salford's Ali Lijee, which provides a kind of broking service for, er, broken computers.

The online business was created in July to provide hardware and software support for small and medium sized businesses, and home computer users, via a network of technicians.

Basically you go on the site, www.ComputerMend.co.uk , enter your postcode and a list of nearest computer technicians appears with contact details. You then fill in an online form describing the computer fault and you get an estimate of the cost...

"Typically, our technicians provide three individual service offerings" says Ali "A walk-in service, where the customer goes to the technician's repair centre, either on spec or by appointment; a call-out service, where the technician visits the customer at their home, their office or even their hotel. The third type of service is remote support, where the technicians access the customer's computer remotely, and carry out necessary work such as data backups, virus detection and removal or software updates.

"We believe that the ComputerMend service is unique, in that it gives the customer immediate access to a choice of highly skilled technicians in their own local area, and they can select the one that offers the ideal service and skill set for their own individual needs" he adds.

ComputerMend is similar to another of Ali's businesses, iTechnician (www.iTechnician.co.uk ), which he claims is the largest independent network of Apple device repairers in the UK.

"I still manage this thriving network, and it occurred to me that many of the iTechnician members, on top of their Apple expertise, repair other types of laptops, desktops and tablets too" he says "I reasoned that I could set up another network, this time focussing on computers, which would generate work for the members in the same way as iTechnician was doing, and so ComputerMend was born."

Ali, who also has the MyWindscreen online car windscreens repair network, began in IT working for the Manchester-based web-hosting provider UKFast selling web-related services. In all his networks, the technicians pay a small 75 fee to be featured on the site and the customers themselves have no extra costs.

He is now building up a bit of a portfolio of companies and has this advice for would-be entrepreneurs in Salford...

"Patience is the first requirement, followed by optimism and tenacity you simply mustn't give up at the first setback" he says "There will be setbacks and difficulties, that's inevitable, but it's how you deal with them that sorts the winners from the losers. Every setback is a chance to learn and grow, so grasp problems as they happen and deal with them quickly it's really the only way to succeed.

"I would also say that if making money is your only aim, you probably won't succeed" he adds "You need to really, truly, enjoy the work you do, otherwise you won't be able to last beyond that crucial first year."

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER 20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet and that the 1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with 1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over 20million.
