What would become Winter’s Computing began in 1998, with Allan taking an interest in how to build and fix computers. In 2001 he began working for his first client providing support to a small network of 8 computers.
In 2002 the business was formed and started to pick up more clients and has continued to grow and evolve.
We now provide a wide variety of services, including Web Design & Development, Application Development, IT Consultancy and we still honour our roots by offering IT support to individuals and businesses.
We are based in Dundee and IT Support service operates within Tayside, Fife and Angus. Depending on the circumstances we do undertake work outside these areas.
For Web Design/Development/Consultancy work we work with clients from all over the world.
We are a small local business – consisting mostly of Allan supported by lifelong friends & contractor Jane, along with other contractors as projects require them.
