 IT Support

When choosing a company to support your organisation’s IT, there is much more to consider than the cost. This is a partnership with real potential to help your business thrive, so it’s worth considering questions to determine if they are right for your organisation.

Do you offer different types of support?

Yes. Whilst we offer “Pay as You Go” and “Break/Fix” type support – we also have clients who purchase a ‘bundle’ of hours and days from us to get a much more preferential rate.

However, the majority of our clients prefer to have comprehensive support, as this gives them piece of mind we are there whenever they need us. It also means their infrastructure is proactively monitored 24/7, ensuring servers and PCs stay as healthy as possible. This greatly improves the performance of an organisation’s IT.

Another great benefit with  comprehensive support is enabling clients to fix costs – so no hidden surprises.

Do you offer a dedicated account manager ?

Yes.  For clients on a Comprehensive Support Package, we include regular review meetings.  The aim of which is to improve understanding of our client’s business to help us advise on future strategies.  It also helps build strong relationships between both parties.

Do you have testimonials and reference sites we can talk to ?

Yes – lots.  We are very proud of our testimonials, and our client satisfaction is very important to us.  Please take a look at Home Page – See what our customers say.  We would also be happy to put you in touch with any of these for you to ask further questions.

Do you have a support desk / help desk ?

Yes.  This is very important to us and our clients.  It allows clients to log calls 24/7 – and also to track progress of current support issues.

How much will it cost us ?

Break/Fix and PAYG support is offered on an hourly rate.  However, our monthly support packages are offered on a monthly contract and are priced based on the number of PCs and the number of servers.

What is included in your Support Package ?

Our aim is ‘prevention is better than cure’ – hence our proactive approach. We monitor our clients’ networks (servers and PCs) on a 24/7 basis. Monitoring the health and security of them… any issues are flagged to us very quickly, allowing our trained, expert engineers to investigate and resolve – often before they become noticed by the end user.

How will you make things better for our business ?

We strive to understand our clients’ business – to better support and advise on the benefits IT can bring, both in efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
