How we partner with you

As this is a dedicated service, we can integrate into your organisation in a way which best suits your business needs. We can complement your existing service desk by adding placed IT Support to your IT team, or we can take over your entire Service Desk function and report to the assigned primary IT contact. The IT contact can be an IT Manager, Director or any Senior Manager in the business. This frees up your senior staff members to focus on more important high-level tasks, such as business strategy. Should you already have great IT staff but would like to benefit from an outsourced model we can incorporate these staff members into our team. As we are an IT company, this often opens up career opportunities for these employees who may have reached a ceiling in an IT department with limited opportunities.
