Option 1: PC Quest Support Services Agreement
For a fixed monthly rate, we will manage a portion or all of your IT infrastructure. Our flexible Managed Service Agreement states the services and support levels we provide.
The traditional model for IT support is commonly referred to as "break - fix". This model assumes that when you, as the client, identify that something is wrong with your IT systems, you contact support and it is then fixed or scheduled to be fixed. In the meantime, you sit on your hands, unable to satisfy your customers.
For your business, this model may provide some cost saving if systems rarely fail. However, you assume all of the risk. There is no predictability. Downtime can be excessive and system downtime equates directly to lost productivity and decreased profit.
A Managed IT Systems model means that for a flat monthly charge, a customised schedule of proactive system maintenance is undertaken, substantially reducing the risk of unplanned outage and allowing your business to run with a high degree of system reliability. We refer to this as our Managed Service Agreement.
Infrastructure support is included in the flat fee, further reducing the unpredictability of IT support costs.
The major benefits of a PC Quest Support Services Agreement include:
- One flat monthly fee, resulting in cost predictability and better ability to budget.
- Customised schedule of services to suit your business.
- Direct access to expert advice.
- Prioritised response to support problems.
- Additional services at no further cost.
- Reduced risk of unplanned outage due to proactive maintenance.
- Greater business surety.
