Our Fully Managed IT Support service also includes our server status reports which provide a thorough check of your server infrastructure designed to highlight any potential issues before they occur.
Carried out either on a monthly or bimonthly basis, an engineer will remote access your server and run through a 16 point check list to in sure the server and network is fully functional.
Our SSR’s are designed to highlight any potential areas of failure that could occur, so that we can prevent them in advance and therefore provide better business continuity.
The results of the check are submitted in a report, clearly showing the status of the network and detailing our recommendations.
The report covers areas such as:
- Storage, memory and CPU
- Event logs and Backup
- Software updates and service packs
Once a call is logged with our team, our engineers will determine the urgency of the issue and respond with the below guaranteed response times.
It is worth noting that our team normally respond well within these limits with the majority of calls dealt with within an hour.
- 1 hour telephone response time from when the call is logged for ‘Major Business Impact’ fault.
- 2 hour telephone response from when the call is logged for ‘Significant Business Impact’ fault.
- 4 hour telephone response from when the call is logged for all other faults.
- 8 hour on-site response if the fault cannot be resolved remotely (calculated from when the helpdesk decide the call cannot be resolved remotely).
We’re always transparent about our prices. There are no hidden fees with our Fully managed IT support, therefore the following scenarios are charged separately to the contract:
- Bespoke applications (sage etc), other than the re-installation of existing versions.
- Re-installation or configuration of new/replacement equipment following theft, fire or act of God (severe weather etc).
- Installation of any new equipment whether supplied by AME or a third-party.
The first thing to do if you have an IT Support problem is to log a Ticket with our IT Support Helpdesk. Then we can quickly sort it out for you.
There are 3 simple, easy ways of logging a Ticket.
- By telephone – 01392 824 022
- By email – email@example.com
- By logging into our OTRS portal online via our website you can log a ticket directly into our ticketing system.
Once a ticket has been logged one of our engineers contact you to discuss and resolve your issue. We will likely asked for permission to remotely connect to your device, this will enable them to work on your issue as if they were sitting at your desk.
If the issue cannot be resolved remotely then an engineer will be sent to your site to look into the issue further.
Once an issue has been resolved the support ticket will be closed.
If the problem recurs again just get in touch. We can easily reopen the ticket and keep working on it until we solve it to your satisfaction.
The skillset and knowledge of our team is the foundation of AME’s success. So many of our clients come from referrals, which is on the back of our team having a wealth of experience, knowledge and qualifications in the IT sector. With our dedication to treat each client the same, maintain high levels of service and fast response times, this leads to receiving fantastic feedback when we carry out surveys with our clients.
Every AME IT system engineer must have at least one Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) qualification and many of the team have the Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MSCE) or equivalent level.
We do require the team to take other training and qualifications as part of their continuing professional development in all areas of IT and with the brands/vendors we work with.
