Are you ready to retire Windows XP

Microsoft will end support of Windows XP and Office 2003 on April 8th 2014. What is the impact for your business?  You can find out more about the impact of retiring Windows XP here. Our graph – taken directly from our web site statistics this week – shows that Windows XP is still a dominant installed operating system, with around 20% of our visitors still using it! Are you ready to retire Windows XP?


We’ve just finished an installation of 4 more new PCs with Windows 7 Pro on them, at one of our clients in Stockport.  This customer – a big Sage user – is making the move to retire Windows XP from their systems before Microsoft – and Sage – end support for it.

We’ve also been involved with the upgrade of every PC to Windows 7 Pro at a local Suzuki Main Dealer.

Both these systems involve critical customer data – accounts, service and warranty history etc – and are core to the business function.

Are you making the right moves to retire Windows XP from your business network?

Where to turn?

CSIP Computing can project manage your migration from Windows XP and Office 2003, leaving you to focus on your key skills – running your business and keeping it profitable.

We will analyse your current installed systems, and help you decide whether upgrade or replace is the best path for you (depending on your current hardware and software).

We will supply, install/migrate and hand over for user acceptance testing, ensuring that whatever systems and programs you use, your migration is as quick and pain-free as possible. We’re not saying there won’t be some disruption, but our years of experience mean we know how to minimise it!

Free Consultation

All it takes in one phone call, and you can arrange a free consultation – typically 1 hour – where we can talk about how you use your computer systems, what your needs and limitations are, and whether CSIP Computing can help. With no obligation to go any further, what is there to lose?
