Welcome to UPBEAT Business Computing, the only IT company in Christchurch, New Zealand dedicated to Business Continuity for businesses of all shapes and sizes. That means robust and reliable IT infrastructure, policies, procedures as well as preventative maintenance to ensure the continued operation of your business no matter what. We don't just keep "fixing" or "upgrading" things that break or go slow, unlike some other IT companies! For us, the traditional "break / fix" approach is a failure; we'd rather it didn't break in the first place! However, if something unexpected does occur, we have what it takes to put it right in double quick time. Why don't you give us a go yourself? Maybe your competitors already have??

Our ideal client is one who knows the cost of downtime yet appreciates the value of insurance!
