Welcome to Solent Way Computers

Brief history of Nigel Williams – Solent Way Computers founder.

Solent way computers was founded by Nigel Williams a local Lee-on-the-Solent resident in January 2019 after spending 32 years in the corporate world focusing in IT, customer relationship, and communication systems.

Nigel started his career with an apprenticeship at IBM back in 1988 and from there worked for a local Fareham company (Kommunicate, formally Erskine Printing Systems) for 9 years again in IT & Communication systems before moving to a large global corporation (Avaya)  where he spent 19 years traveling all over the world designing corporate contact center solutions.

Nigel left the corporate world in December 2018 ending up with over 150 staff across the whole of the EU.

About Us Now

Wanting to move away from dealing with large companies and corporates Nigel Founded Solent Way Computers and now only focuses on support Home / Residential users and Small businesses in the local area. It started with just Nigel and his Wife Esther supporting the admin side of the business and in the last couple of months have just hired two local boys (Harley Youngman & Frankie Haynes) who will work full time while starting an open university degree in computing and IT.

We are located at Unit 7 at the Fareham Innovation Centre, behind CMAST college. We chose this location rather than the high street as the Innovation Centre has a large car park and if brining in heavy equipment you can park right outside our door.

We aim to speak in plain English and not techy mumbo jumbo so you can be sure for a clear explanation of what’s wrong with your computer… If you need new computers or upgrades, we will identify your exact need and can source and supply plus fully setup and migrate all your data from your existing systems. We are not tied into any one manufacturer so can find the perfect computer for you.

No matter if you have a computer running slow, suspected virus or malware problem we can help. We offer a complete disconnect remove, fix deliver and reconnect service so you do not have to lift a finger. We test the machine after it’s been installed back in your home or business and guarantee our work.

No matter what your problem give us a call either on 01329 535 001 or our freephone number 0800 311 8001 and we’ll happily discuss your needs.

Most of our work is undertaken at a fixed price so there will be no surprises.

We look forward to being of service to you

I recommend Nigel to anyone having problems with their computer, was getting frustrated with mine for months and took it to him and within a week it was as good as new.

Good morning, Nigel and the guys. Bob Price here. My desktop is now like lightning after you fitted the SSD & increased RAM size for me. Brilliant advice, super job, and I am already recommending this service to contacts. Thank you for prompt and efficient service.

Amazing service from Nigel, I called him this morning and he did my MacBook hard drive upgrade within 3 hours of me calling. It’s working like a brand new machine and I’m really pleased. Really reasonable price too! Highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Nigel 😊

More than happy with my laptop! Nigel helped me out of a complete hole and fixed a nightmare situation for me. My work output is now far more efficient and reliable plus I have someone I can rely on for all my PC and laptop needs. I will recommend to anyone and any business. The support was there on the day, the communication was instant, and the problem sorted. Plus - Nigel is professional, knowledgeable and genuinely there to help you. Thanks again. I cannot recommend enough!
