Basic Computer Maintenance Contract

Remote Support

Unlimited remote support during office hours..

Users can contact us via email, telephone.

Our support engineers use a remote access service which allows them to connect
to the problematic system, and fix it without having to visit your office.

Service Level Agreements (SLAs)

15 minute response to support requests.

4 hour resolution target to support requests.

8 hour target when a fault cannot be resolved remotely and on-site presence is required.

On-site Visits

Where faults cannot be resolved remotely, site visits will be charged at preferential rates.
This is £70.00 per hour in office hours and £90.00 per hour out of hours, in comparison to
£90/£120 for non-contract clients.

Third party Applications
