Deskside

The role of on-site technical service is changing.  Hands on technical support and user assistance are still required, but training, services integration, and leadership are increasingly important. Our field staff is trained to provide comprehensive technical support and account management. Their role is shifting from being mostly reactive to mostly proactive.

We also provide long-term on-site staff. They work closely with your existing IT team or with your head office IT team. Our larger clients and multi-nationals often choose this option because of the flexibility, reliability, and simplicity.

We keep the same team of technicians with specific clients. Your staff will see a familiar face with every visit. These technicians will understand the intricacies of your IT department and workplace.

How does this help?

Courteous, uniformed field technicians resolve your on-site IT issues quickly and carefully. You will have a prime technician and a backup technician. Both are required to enter all data and activities in our support system. Your primary field technician is responsible for developing your IT capabilities which include budgeting, asset management and introducing ideas. Field staff works closely with our remote support team and technical specialists.  They will know you well and are a key part of our account management program.

Help Desk

Help Desk staff are courteous and communicate well.  They sit beside our network, server and security specialists and are closely linked to field technicians. We have a highly integrated approach to remote support. Your satisfaction is our prime metric. We constantly measure it and adjust our services accordingly.
