Hi *|FNAME|*,

I hope you are all going ok with the closures and lockdowns. DP Computing is still working and some of our techs are working from home to help ensure physical separation.

We have most of our existing clients working safely and productively from home, if any one else out there need any help please contact me at or call me on 08 8326 4364 and let us know if there is anything I can do to help

If you are looking to do some online learning or wanting to know what is available during this time check out he following links:

  • LinkedIn Learning / Lynda offer a variety of online learning courses. They have a free 1 month trial or if you are a member of a South Australian Library you will get free ongoing access - click here for details.
  • Superloop are offering free NBN services for low income households with school children - click here for the details.
  • Other companies are also offering free software or services during the current outbreak. Check out the list here for further details.

If you are looking at ways in which you can work from home, let me know as there are a few different options available to most businesses.

In the world of IT, the availability of laptops and monitors is getting better but webcams are still hard to source. If you are in need of any of these items please let us know ASAP so we can try and source stock.

Microsoft in their infinite wisdom also decided to change the names of some of their Office 365 products in April (if it wasn't confusing enough already!). The functionality will stay the same but the actual product names have changed. Click here for more information on what products have been renamed.

If you need any help or assistance let me know. Stay safe and catch you all next month.

COVID-19 Information

DP Computing is still providing both onsite and remote support to ensure our clients keep on operating. As a business we are continually monitoring the latest government updates regarding the caronavirus and taking all necessary precautions. We currently have a policy for technicians to follow and some of our technicians will be working from their homes. If anyone at your site has COVID-19 symptoms or has returned from interstate or overseas recently we will not be attending the site and instead will be offering remote support. If this causes any issues with clients, we apologise in advance.

We have been informed that due to the fact that a number of our clients are deemed as essential services we will still be offering onsite services and support even in the event of a full lockdown. Whether this means we can also attend other clients premises is not known at this stage.

Remote services can also be used where we do not even need to come into your office or business. Depending on you issue we may insist that we try and solve your issues remotely before we come onsite. If you prefer remote services also please let us know.

We can also help businesses with transitioning their staff to work from home. If you or your staff members would like to work remotely please let us know as we can help set this up.

Out and About
Luckily for us we have still been busy during this time and some of the previously planned projects are still going ahead.
