Technical Support

With ITIL-based support services you can expect a prompt and efficient response every time. Our single helpdesk for telephone and email accepts calls from your users and routes these to the Microsoft, Cloud or Sage teams as appropriate. We support it all (third party applications by arrangement) so there is no lost time trying to identify "who is responsible".

A full Service Level Agreement (SLA) protects your interests and provides guarantees in terms of response and fix times - with penalties and refunds to you if we fail to hit our targets.

 

We can host any software

With Enterprise Sage Cloud you are not limited to Sage software. We can offer any Microsoft products, including Office, on a bolt-on per-user per-month basis, we can also add email systems and any other software you want to be hosted.

Your IT system can be this straight-forward and cost-effective.

It is that simple.
