Imagine being able to pinpoint and eliminate a problem on your computer network before any symptoms occur within the systems you use. It would save you money in down time and keep your system running the way you need it to for your business to operate.
This is the advantage of proactive maintenance over reactive maintenance. Proactive maintenance provides corrective actions aimed at the sources of potential failure. The first logical step to proactive maintenance is the implementation of regular onsite inspections of your computer network and systems. We provide this service to our clients and they see the immediate benefit of it. After all, prevention is better than cure.
As part of our commitment to getting issues resolved as quickly for our clients, we also provide Remote Support. This means that we can (in most cases) log into our client PC’s/Servers via a secure channel from our offices and get to the source of the problem within a few minutes. We have found that most issues are resolved within 30 minutes.
When Helpdesk support or our Remote support doesn’t successfully resolve the logged call, then we can dispatch an engineer (or team) to your offices to resolve the issue on-site. For our contract clients, our response times are fast and part of the contract and for all other clients it is based on a priority system where the most critical problems are addressed first.

Any organisation should have a formal support agreement in place with their IT service provider. However, many organisations don’t have a formal agreement in place and often those that do don’t always take the time to read and understand it. Any support or service agreement should clearly state what is included (and excluded) in the service provided.
Key aspect of any support agreement
The most important aspect of the support agreement is the SLA or Service Level Agreement. This is a common understanding of the service provided including response times, guarantees and warranties associated with the support of your IT systems, services and applications.
Multiple SLA’s depending on the importance of the system or service.
For example, critical IT hardware could have a 0 – 4 hour response time, along with the engineering time to resolve the issue, time to liaise with the hardware manufacturer to avail of warranty, spare parts etc.
Critical hardware devices include servers, network switches, firewalls, phone systems and can be thought of as systems that impact the entire organisation in the event of failure.
Non critical hardware such as laptops, PC’s and Printers might have a next business day response time as failure would not impact the entire organisation.
