What our customers say

Some of the nice words our customers say about their experience

For such a young man, Sam presented himself in such a polite and professional manner. His confidence around his knowledge and skillset was second to none, and his conversation was engaging. It was pleasant to come across such a motivated and enthusiastic young character.

I wanted to say thanks to Paul for all the work that he did in terms of the report. I honestly don’t know what would have happened without his input! It is very much appreciated. Many thanks again.

Excellent support from Myles. Above and beyond what I was hoping. Investigated the issues, and implemented the solution and then took time to explain and show me what had been implemented.

Paul setup InTune to save us time and lay the foundations so we have a recommended configuration to build upon, and be able to setup new surface tablets with a cloud first approach. I really enjoyed working with Paul on this and his knowledge and experience in this area was excellent

Thanks for the time and effort both Tracey and Zarra had undertaken in turning a negative situation in general to a very positive feeling. I am very much looking forward to working with Virtue moving forward on upcoming service, solutions and projects.

Great turn around, communication and engagement, at its best!

Richard was a superb engineer, I was off on the day he came in to complete this project but he worked really well with my deputy James. Richard explained to James what he was doing/did and they were able to relay the information back to myself when I returned. James was very impressed with Richard and I’m glad to say everything went very well with this mini-project. Cheers

The quality of the quotes and the process Virtue have for order confirmations (along with the speed at which they are generated) was significantly better than all the other businesses we dealt with. Virtue made it really easy for us.

Patricia is a great asset to Team Virtue. Her quick responses to any question posed are what customers need and, if she’s not able to answer, she always put us at ease by forwarding our query elsewhere. Requests for quotes are quick and detailed, and it’s great to know there’s a friendly voice/email at the other end if ever we need it.

CTouch screens provided by Virtue have been a huge investment throughout the school. The hardware provides various visual stimulus and have increased the accessibility for all our children. When combined with our specialist software the children are able to access their learning at their own level through practical, inspirational and creative media.

Virtue Technologies actually understand what goes on in schools, it’s not all about a computer on a desk, it’s about the experience for the students. I think we share that with Virtue.
