Purchasing remote support from us provides you with direct access to our engineers with a targeted response time of one business day for all support questions and issues. Our remote support compliments your existing IT resources, adding great value and efficiency by providing you with access to our wide range of experience and expertise.
Our remote support model is is on an hourly basis, allowing you to better manage your IT budget. Support plans start with a 2-hour minimum commitment and are billed at an incremental hourly rate after that. You can purchase as much or as little support as you need without a large initial or subsequent purchase resulting in wasted IT dollars. Support hours do expire one year after date of purchase.
How it Works
Time is tracked using our ticketing system, and rounded to the nearest 1/4 of an hour (15 minute increments), with a minimum of 15 minutes. While working with you, or on a project for you, the timer is running. When completed, the timer is stopped, the time is entered in the ticket, and the ticket is closed. If something will take more than the amount of hours you have already purchased, we will obtain your approval before exceeding the amount of time you have purchased. As a support subscriber, you will have direct access to our service portal to view the status of all of your tickets and support hours.
