Remote IT support

All too often, calling your remote IT support provider means being given a reference number and then waiting to hear back before the problem is looked at and hopefully fixed. When incidents are handled in this way, it can leave staff feeling frustrated and in the dark as to when issues will be resolved.

Optimising IT has a different approach. With our managed IT services, your staff can contact us by email or telephone, safe in the knowledge that our experienced second and third level team will manage any incidents through to resolution, all the while keeping them informed of progress — resulting in minimal staff downtime and frustration.

About the service

How our remote IT support works

Anyone can say they’re great at what they do. So, it’s essential first to see how that business works. Here’s how our remote IT desktop support works:

1. Identify

An issue is identified by a user or via our real-time monitoring alert system.

2. Log

The issue is logged via email, phone, self-service, chat, SMS or monitoring alert. We now know about it, and we have the details.

3. Resolve or process

We resolve 78% of the calls we take before you put the phone down. If we can’t solve it on the phone, we’ll provide you with a reference number.

4. Resolved or escalated

We usually resolve 100% of issues that we couldn’t solve over the phone within 2 days. If it’s a real head-scratcher, our team will escalate the issue to the third line team or a third party resolver group (pre-agreed in escalation routes).

5. Monitor and communicate

We keep you updated with progress as and when it happens, which we can provide via email, phone call or via our customer portal.

6. Quality control

Following every issue with solve, we will perform a quality control check to ensure similar problems don’t happen again and formulate a plan to deal with them quicker if they do. In some rare cases, we will perform a major incident review (if required).

IT desktop support is our flagship core IT support service. Our dedicated team of service desk engineers are on hand to help with all of your desktop and end-user IT support queries and requests.

Depending on your environment, staff locations and devices, we will deploy appropriate tools to your devices to allow us to manage them remotely.
