About Us

Started in 1998 as a consumer-focused IT support company, Dial a Nerd established a business-focused division in 2002. Today, the organisation has evolved to almost entirely focus on supporting small to medium enterprises (SMEs).

Started in 2011, Turrito Networks aims to provide Enterprise grade Internet and hosting to SME’s.  This was, and is, a gap in the market as many Internet Service Providers either focus on consumers or corporates.

In 2015, Dial a Nerd merged with Turrito Networks.  These two companies have created a complete IT and communication solution for SMEs that encompasses everything from supplying a laptop right through to designing and delivering a fibre connected geo-redundant hybrid-cloud solution.

Previously, these services were only available to enterprise customers due to the large budgets required. However, thanks to the partnership between these two organisations, SMEs, mid-market organisations, homes, and schools can benefit from a completely integrated and connected offering at a fraction of the cost.

We offer remote monitoring and SLA providing unlimited remote and telephonic support for a fixed monthly fee. Outsourcing is a strategic tool that can have a powerful positive impact on your organization’s focus, growth, financial stability and productivity levels, Concentrate on running your business knowing that your IT infrastructure requirements are being dealt with by highly skilled professionals at a fraction of the cost of an internal IT department.
