When establishing our computer based exam centre we required expert IT input to ensure our network was configured correctly. Ivan provided both the expertise and the flexibility we required. His knowledge of IT and his practical approach ensured our network was up and running quickly and effectively.
Ivan is professional and very easy to work with. We feel lucky to have found Ivan and recommend him to any individual or business requiring IT assistance.
We have a number of luxury short term let properties in St Albans city centre, reliable high-speed internet access is vital to our guests. Ivan has been installing and maintaining the networking and wireless setup since 2005.
Blue Box has also redesigned and updates our website, which we get regular enquiries from.
Blue Box assisted in identifying all our computer needs, followed by installation. Ivan offers a fantastic service and ensures any issues are swiftly resolved to minimise any down time.
Excellent results from Ivan's visit. Long standing wifi issues that we now understand and have been able to work round successfully. Family happy and I am expecting less stress going forward as all that is expected to work now does. Thank you for such prompt and professional support.
We at Lockmasters needed our IT solutions to be brought into this century we approached Ivan at Blue Box whom we had a discussion with regarding our needs and how to safeguard our Data. Ivan informed us in an easy non-jargon type of way what the solutions and options were. Ivan is easily obtainable, easy to talk to and an asset to our business.
We are a footwear company based in St Albans. We have employees based in several different countries and regularly travel widely. Blue Box has provided our IT Support since 2008 and has been prompt and reliable. Because of the diverse nature of our business IT is key to what we do and Ivan has sourced, installed and maintained our two Servers, Storage, Backup and Work Stations.

We have been using Blue Box Computer Services since 2007 and have always found them to be excellent. We have worked together on a number of projects over the years in Berkhamsted, Tring, Chesham and St Albans. While IT is important to us, I do not want to get overly involved with it. Ivan has planned what is needed and worked within budget to deliver, always quickly and efficiently. He has worked closely with other suppliers to design and install and has supported the systems and services afterwards. Ivan has supported our offices and worked closely with staff on a day to day basis, ensuring everything runs smoothly.

Blue Box has been doing our IT Support since 2009 and I have no hesitation in recommending them. Over the years we have become very IT dependent and I am happy to say that Ivan has completely changed the way we work. We use their Hosted Exchange and Backup service and the Support has been excellent, any maintenance issues that have arisen have been dealt with quickly and efficiently. The other thing I like is that Ivan talks to us in a language we understand not ‘tech speak’. Our office is based in St Albans but I am now able to work from anywhere thanks to Blue Box.
Ivan’s help has been invaluable. Even though we had previously been using another IT support provider our IT systems for our business were in an absolute mess resulting in the fact the day to day running of the business was becoming impossible. Ivan spent countless hours sorting the systems out across the Tring & Berkhamsted office, liaising with our software providers whilst being careful not to disrupt further the business activities. He was always on the end of a phone and was extremely courteous and professional at all times. I would not hesitate in recommending Ivan.

Computer operation is key to our business, and having struggled for many years with computer problems, it was a breath of fresh air to come across Ivan. He has solved many issues and provided much clear advice very promptly, and his payment method of a standing credit means that we are encouraged to call with even small questions, thus ensuring that we are most effective.
We have worked with Blue Box Computers for the past couple of years now and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services. Ivan is extremely responsive and in a world where business heavily relies on IT working smoothly, Ivan has regularly supported our team … from simple ‘how to ‘ questions, web-site development, meeting clients individual and often challenging requests to advising how technology can help us operate more effectively.

Just a note to say how much I’ve appreciated your services over the past few years.
You invariably return calls promptly if you are unavailable when I ring, and you turn up punctually to appointments. You have also been remarkably courteous on the occasions when I’ve called you on holiday or at weekends.
You have managed to resolve all the problems I’ve had with my computer, and installed new computers for Anne and me.
It’s important for me to be able to have confidence in someone who deals with matters of which I am completely ignorant, as is the case here. I have had no hesitation in mentioning your name to others who might need your services.
I would just like to say I've used Ivan for my IT requirements over the years and he's been both professional and cost effective for my business needs.
After initially dismissing the idea of having a website I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of new business the site Ivan`s created for me has generated.
I would definitely recommend him to others.
As a home user, I can highly recommend Ivan. In fact, I would not consider anyone else for my computer needs. Even small things matter to Ivan, such as my “screenmate puppy”! Troubleshooting is effortless, and all my general queries answered with expertise.
Ivan is friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. He has helped on several “niggly” things, and has set up my printer and my PC when I upgraded. He is prompt in returning calls, always on time, and ever smiling! I could not ask for more.
Once again you have come to my rescue! You first helped me to set up a new computer some five or six years ago and also with the very considerable work load I had at that time. More recently a change of email address, the purchase of my first laptop and a change to broadband was to say the least very challenging for me (at nearly 76 most things are!).
You have unfailingly returned my calls, calmly put things right, and shown me where I was getting it wrong. Thank you. I would have no hesitation in warmly recommending your service to my friends.
I found Ivan Rodrigues and Blue Box Computer Services about 12 years ago when our PC had serious problems, largely due to the poor quality service provided by a large Computer Repair Company. A search on the internet produced Ivan and his Blue Box Company.
The big plus with Ivan is that he can supply equipment as well as repair and service equipment. In addition he is local and does the work himself.
In the 12 years Ivan has supplied our family with 2 desktop PCs and a laptop. In addition Ivan regularly services our PC on an annual basis.
I am totally comfortable recommending Ivan to our friends and one of our friends purchased a laptop from a major retailer. He struggled to set the laptop up, contacted the support function of the retailer and sadly the machine still would not work to the standard expected. I recommended Ivan who quickly resolved the problem.
I have no hesitation in recommending Blue Box Computer Services to anyone, whether for personal or business needs.
