What is Ayida?

Back in 1977 I had my first experience with video games, playing Space Invaders in the local leisure centre after going swimming. From then on computers and video games became a passion for me.

When I was eleven I got my first home computer – a Sinclair ZX81 (I loved that machine) and that really was my only hobby throughout my teenage years and beyond!

It wasn’t until 1993 (after owning many different platforms and spending a lot of money on them) that I began to realise that I should really be working with my passion rather than just mucking around and building machines for fun.

After working in the IT services industry for nearly ten years I decided (along with my wife Beth) that we should setup a company to provide that personal service (and passion) to it’s clients. Ayida was born (the name coming from the Goddess of Rainbows and meaning “Happy” ) in 2003.

Since then we have grown quite a bit, but we’re still small, flexible and still have the desire to help everyone we work with.

In my spare time I still play video games (and have now got all of my five children into gaming) and I collect retro PC and video game hardware.

What our customers say

The support and service we have received from Ayida has been excellent over the years and we recently decided to renew our support agreement for another three years in April 2016.

Mark Clayton,

We are very happy with the service and support we receive from Ayida and have recently renewed our long standing Service contract with them.

Lewis Flowerdew,

The Office 365 solution works very well and it was implemented by Ayida during the working week, despite this we had very little disruption to the business and Ayida’s on-going support has been great.
