How long is the contract?

Our standard term length for our Managed Service Standard Support offering is a 3 month committement, that transitions to month to month. We do this to give us enough time to get fully integrated into your environment and get familiar with the intricacies of your organization.

We offer additional discounts on longer term agreements, but that's entirely vountary. We are confident enough in our service level that we do not have to force our customers into a long term relationship, but that those happen naturally as we build trust and confidence in our ability to provide a high level of service and solve your problems. For additional details, take a look at the "Terms and Conditions" tab above.

Why do you have a setup fee?

Because we do not lock you into a contract, there is a significant amount of investment and time up front to get new customers on board. This fee is waived for our yearly contracts.

How long does the onboarding process take?

The process to get integrated into your environment and up and running to be able to support your team is dependent on several factors, like responsiveness of current IT support, access to systems and spaces, and deployment of management tools in the environment. The typical customer can be onboarded fully in 2 to 3 weeks. As far as being able to take calls and start to get familiar with your environment, we can do that on day one, while we run through our standard onboarding process.

What is your response time in an emergency?

For emergencies constituting an outage, we respond immediately by phone and depending on location we can be onsite within 2 hours. All outage situations are evaluated based on impact and severity.

How regularly would you meet with us to go over the IT situation?

Aside from regular interactions for support, upgrades, and account management check-ins, we perform one formal check in half way through your contract year and then a more in-depth review on an annual basis. The formal check in involves a short meeting or call to go over the status of the relationship, make sure we address any concerns and get a sense of how things are going. The yearly review is more in-depth where we make sure you're getting the right mix of services, we go over any planning for the year, and make sure you're satisfied with the level of service for the previous year.

Will you support our existing IT systems or replace them entirely?

We will support your existing environment. We will also review your environment and make recommendations that are meant to address any systemic issues caused by problematic components in your environment. We will also work with your third-party vendors to support core line of business services and systems.

How do I know which payment plan will work best for my organization?

Generally, if your staff size is very stable, meaning you're not planning to grow or shrink, the per user approach tends to be more desirable. If your staff size changes often during the year, up and down, it would be more advantageous to go with the organization size approach, as it maintains predictability and can provide cost savings in the long term. Having said that, we are happy to discuss your goals and make the best recommendation the meets those goals, while providing the most value for your organization.
