Awareness Monitoring System 

AMS is used for endpoint management through internal monitoring of servers and workstations but also a deployment tool. AMS reports to a centralised dashboard so that our AMS Operations teams can respond to all issues across our entire customer base. The monitoring system can automatically create support tickets as alerts are triggered past a configurable threshold per alert.

ASL Out of Hours Support

We provide extended support for business-critical issues that can be easily scaled up or down according to your business priorities. Our modern workplace support service is aligned to your business needs, so call us to discuss your requirements.

IT Health Checks / Patching

Depending upon requirements we can provide a monthly or quarterly health check service which will check your key servers are functioning at an optimum level. We will make recommendations based on these checks and discuss any findings with the customer.

We offer a quarterly patch service where all key servers will be updated with the latest patch and firmware releases. This is great for those devices that tend to be ignored after initial deployments. This can also reduce downtime if problems occur, as these updates will not have to be loaded on retrospectively. Often the importance of these updates is overlooked to the detriment of the business. These patches are applied in a controlled fashion outside of normal business hours with a regression plan in place.

Our Service Desk have strong working practices and a commitment to continual improvement:
