With IT systems now central to many business functions, having good support is essential to maintaining those systems in good condition.
The type of support which you need will depend upon the nature and scale of your IT systems.
Support options from Active IT Support include:
Non-Critical Incident-Based Support Critical Systems Support On-Call Out-of-Hours Support
For non-critical systems, we can offer incident-based support, whereby you call us when a problem occurs and we will assist in diagnosing and fixing the problem.For critical systems, we would recommend setting up an annual support contract, which will give you piece-of-mind that the support resources which you require will be available when you need them.
On-Call Out-of-Hours Support is the highest level of support, in which we act as the first line of contact for your users during times when your IT dept is closed. This requires a high level of engagement from Active IT Support engineers.

IT systems, whether heavily or lightly-loaded, need regular checks to avoid the possibility of a damaging failure, which will often occur unexpectedly.
Active IT Support can provide health status reports on your systems, flagging areas in which preventative action can be taken to reduce the likelihood of a failure, and can also prepare contingency plans so that failures can quickly be dealt with.
Backup monitoring plays an important part in this process, as having good backups is essential for system recovery. We provide a daily monitoring service for backups.
Antivirus deployment, disk space availability, connectivity status, network performance, and server health status are all areas in which Active IT Support are able to provide essential checks on a regular basis.
We have remote monitoring and access facilities to enable us to carry out these essential checks without needing to attend your site, thereby maximising the benefit for you at minimal cost.
