Vision Network Solutions (VNS) has supported Combined Artistic Productions' IT requirements since 2004. This includes regular site visits and remote monitoring of servers, networking and Internet equipment, as well as over-the-phone support.
Combined Artistic Productions produces M-NET's flagship actuality programme, Carte Blanche. Carte Blanche exclusively makes use of HP products, except in the area of video editing where we make use of Apple Macs.
Carte Blanche has significant storage requirements and as we work primarily with HD footage, large files need to travel over a scalable and robust network. VNS has helped in the roll-out and maintenance of the office network.
As we deal with sensitive data, security is critical. We need to trust the company we use and I have found the team at VNS to reliable, trustworthy and efficient. The team has also offered support in the areas of procurement, phone integration (both mobile and fixed) to Exchange, backup requirements, and Internet connectivity.
I highly recommend them.

So thank you and the team for everything and we aim to build on our relationship in the future.

I've never had such an efficient and pleasant experience creating a website before. No broken links, ignored change requests or bugs... it all went so smoothly.
Greg is a real professional and I'd do business with him anytime. He gave advice and guidance where needed, while accommodating all our requests.
All work was done according to schedule. The result is a great website that we've received plenty of compliments on.
But the best part is that it's grown our business. It'll pay itself off many times over.
Thank you Greg & the team at VNSonline!

From the moment I contracted VNSonline to assist with re-designing our website, I have been impressed. Greg sat with me for 2 hours, asking detailed questions on the company, the products and services to gain an understanding of the message we wanted portrayed.
The website design and capability exceeded my expectation, has increased customer awareness and sales via online ordering, and attracts compliments from our customers on being professional and informative.
Information updates and changes are made timeously, and VNSonline's after-sales service is brilliant.
I would highly recommend Greg and his team to any company.
