How we work
Our integrated platform combines a ticketing system for service, with a customer relationship management system, directly integrated into an invoicing system, and provides clients and partners access and visibility through a web portal.
The system allows us to track and manage the jobs your staff raise, with a complete job history that also lets us research and resolve other similar issues. It makes reporting efficient and thorough, and ensures we’re completing what you need us to satisfactorily.
Our remote management and monitoring system provides seamless direct access and we also provide remote support for unmanaged clients via the Quick Support button on our website. It's fast, and as effective as sitting with the user at their computer, with the ability to solve the issue right there and then.
Our remote management and monitoring system ensures we're always aware of what's happening with the performance, security and backups of your systems. It means we're able to stay a step ahead and proactively resolve issues before they cause problems like downtime and data loss.
We lay great groundwork for seamless and efficient service through robust documentation. This means that any support engineer can quickly understand what they're working with so they can fix it faster, minimising downtime and lost revenue. The documentation also allows us to more effectively communicate knowledge on your environments configuration, and future plans, with you.
Together we partner with:
Experience better for yourself.
