Welcome to CRX

This Friday – Martin Briggs,
Hands On IT

17th May 2024, 7:30 – 9:00 am

Hands On IT’s role is to help companies deal with and prevent the frustrations that computer systems can bring to a business.

The sort of companies that we work with either don’t have an in-house IT person and sub it out to a support company or they have a member of staff that deals with IT internally who needs cover when not around or assistance with larger jobs.

Having been in business since 1995, the company has grown around the philosophy of providing friendly and patient support along with the provision of hardware and software that fit a customer’s needs.

Upcoming presentations

24th May – Simon Annis, Top Brush Painters

31st May – Hakeem Anjorin, Right at Home (Dementia Friends special)


CRX’s NEW home is the London Aerodrome Hotel in the Spitfire Room, 680 Purley Way CR9 4LT Croydon.
