About Us

Company Profile

Deans Computer Services Plc (DCS) – one of the leading IT ‘total solution’ and software solutions companies in the North of England. More than 30 years experience in the small to medium size business arenas enables DCS to focus sharply on the IT support needs or software solutions of owner-managed businesses, the specific challenges they face and the strategic goals they strive for.

DCS delivers leading-edge and reliable software solutions to small and medium sized businesses. Formed in 1982 DCS became a total computer systems house offering systems consultancy and integration, networking installations, equipment maintenance and repairs, software installation with training and support, bespoke programming, internet e-mail/e-commerce solutions and business forms.

Our people are highly professional and extremely approachable. They will not simply work for you but ‘with’ you to build a strong relationship which delivers real value and benefits.

DCS offers unparalleled commitment to supporting and training end users on the UK’s leading accounting software packages  Pegasus Opera 3, Opera II, Intact iQ, Exchequer, SAP Business One and Sage 50 Accounts and offers software support contracts for post-installation continuity. DCS can offer either tailored or structured training on the above accounts systems and all Microsoft Office applications, either on-site or in our purpose-built training room.

DCS specialises in the provision of turnkey bespoke solutions and customised software.  With the merger of Leckhampton Computers we have now have a team of 10 developers and are able to provide systems for manufacturing; distribution and wholesale and retail industries to name but a few.

We have designed and installed in a wide area of applications including the original ESTATEMAN Property Management System, currently used by the country’s leading Property Managers and for the Government of Gibraltar.

In 2001 DCS launched “Dealer” – an integrated CRM and Service Management System with live links to Sage 50, Pegasus Opera 3, Exchequer and iQ from Intact. This was followed by the recently launched simplified but powerful Dealer LITE. To further support companies on the move, we extended this and added Dealer Mobile for IPhone and IPad. This brings CRM and Customer Service functionality to your mobile devices.

Other products launched are ‘Property Dealer’ for agents dealing with commercial property matching and property management, and ‘Care Home Dealer’ – specifically developed for the management of Care Homes and their residents.
