Business Solutions Overview We offer many solutions to streamline your infrastructure and protect your data. Because most organizations revolve around computers, it makes sense financially to protect them from failure. Only 34% of companies actually test their tape back-ups. Out of those that do test, 77% fail to restore. Many companies have a back-up strategy if the servers fail but what if the data is bad to begin with? Those back-ups are worthless!! Dont Gamble with DATA loss! Our Back-Up and Disaster Recovery (BDR) Solutions will ensure your data is safe and accessible. Constant Data Snapshots. Data Snapshots are taken as often as every 15 minutes. If a disaster occurs, we can do a Bare Metal Restore and have you up and running in under one hour in most cases.

Companies experiencing a major loss of computer records 43 percent never reopened 51 percent closed within two years of the loss Only 6 percent survived over the long-term For Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) in particular, these statistics suggest the necessity of crafting a Business Continuity Planning (BCP) strategy grounded in a robust data backup and recovery solution. Many smaller companies can not afford optimal in-house strategies and solutions to support Business Continuity Planning. These companies are consequently at an elevated risk of being put out of business due to any major loss of data. Loss of data could mean s lost, accounting data lost, patient or client files lost, company records lost, client legal records or orders lost and so on. Executive Summary
Business Continuity Planning for Small and Medium Size Businesses BCP is the blueprint for how businesses plan to survive everything from local equipment failure to global disaster. Data-oriented Business Continuity Planning (BCP), is an indispensable component of business planning regardless of the organizations size. Smaller businesses generally lack the in-house IT resources to achieve these demanding planning, technical and process requirements. Therefore, many Small and Medium-sized Business (SMBs) either neglect to implement any data-oriented business continuity plan or they approach data backup and recovery in a sporadic, rudimentary fashion that fails to conform to the best practices of Business Continuity Planning (BCP).

Help Desk A help desk is an information and assistance resource that troubleshoots problems with computers or similar products. Corporations often provide help desk support to their customers via a toll- free number, website and/or . There are also in-house help desks geared toward providing the same kind of help for employees only.
Typical Help Desk A typical help desk has several functions: It provides the users a single point of contact, to receive help on various computer issues. The help desk typically manages its requests via help desk software, such as an issue tracking system, that allows them to track user requests with a unique number. The real value of the help desk comes not solely from its reactive response to users' issues, but from its unique position of communicating daily with numerous customers or employees. This gives the help desk the ability to monitor the user environment for issues from technical problems to user preferences and satisfaction. Such information gathered at the help desk can be valuable for use in planning and preparation for other units in IT.
Pandora thought IT looked innocent enough at first too! Lets face it, someones got to keep tabs on the business technology, but it shouldnt be the person whos also running the shop. The last thing you need is the distraction of worrying what sort of unhappy surprises might jump out at you if you tinker with the computer networks. The good news is, you no longer have to. Relax, its not a myth, its managed services. Today, a growing number of companies are tossing that Pandoras box of technology concerns and opting to outsource their IT operations to a third- party expert. The trend is fueling the rise of the managed services business model and quite literally changing the way technology is delivered by companies of different sizes, across all industries. Managed Services Providers (MSPs) deliver 24/7 remote monitoring, management and remediation (in the event that something goes wrong) of your entire network or specific parts of it. Among other things: IT updates occur automatically from a remote location. Server down? Immediate notification and troubleshooting. Middle-of-the-night help desk question? A phone call away. Its peace of mind and its backed in writing. Trying to manage your own IT system can sometimes unleash a world of problems.
Not performing regular and proactive maintenance of your computer systems, be it desktops or servers, is a major cause of problems such as viruses, spyware, machines running slow and overall network downtime.

Tier 1 1.Tier 1 is the initial support for basic customer issues. 2.It is important for the technician to identify what the customer is trying to accomplish so that time is not wasted on attempting to solve a symptom instead of a problem. 3.The specialist can begin sorting through the possible solutions available. 4.Technical support specialists in this group typically handle simple problems.This includes troubleshooting and resolving computer issues. 5.The goal for this group is to handle 70%-80% of the users problems before finding it necessary to escalate the issue to a higher level. Support Levels
Tier 1 Tier 2 1.Tier 2 is a more in-depth, containing experienced and more knowledgeable personnel on a particular product or service. 2.Technicians in this realm of knowledge are responsible for assisting Tier 1 personnel in solving basic technical problems and for investigating elevated issues. 3.Prior to the troubleshooting process, it is important that the technician review the work order to see what has already been accomplished by the Tier 1 technician. 4.If a problem is new and/or personnel from this group cannot determine a solution, they are responsible for raising this issue to the Tier 3 technical support group. Support Levels
Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 1.Tier 3 is the highest level of support and is responsible for handling the most difficult or advanced problems. 2.These individuals are experts in their fields and are responsible for the research and development of solutions to new or unknown issues. 3.Technicians will work to solve the problem with the customer. 4.In some instances, an issue may be so problematic to the point where the product cannot be salvaged and must be replaced. Such extreme problems are also sent to the original developers for in-depth analysis. Support Levels
Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 While not universally used, a fourth level often represents an escalation point beyond the organization. This is generally a hardware or software vendor. Within a corporate incident management system it is important to continue to track incidents even when they are being acted on by a vendor and the Service Level Agreement (or SLA) may have a specific provision for this.

Processing of Requests Phone A ticket will be created for each call received by the Help Desk. When a call is received by the Help Desk, the call will be answered by a Level 1 technician. If the incoming request can be handled within 10 minutes, the Level 1 technician will stay with the call to resolve the issue. If the Level 1 technician estimates that the incoming request will take longer, they will (a) hand off the call to a Level 2 technician if one is available, or (b) inform the caller that the issue will be assigned to a Level 2 technician and end the call. The Level 1 technician will then place the ticket in the Help Desk ticket queue where it will be assigned to a Level 2 technician by the Help Desk Team lead. Voic If all technicians are unavailable, the caller will be placed in a hold queue. They will be transferred from the hold queue once a technician becomes available. The caller has the option to leave a voic if they choose not to wait in the hold queue. In such cases, the Help Desk will listen to the voic , create a ticket, and place the ticket in the Help Desk ticket queue. The ticket will then be assigned to a Level 2 technician. The technician will respond based on ticket priority.
s A ticket will be created for each request received by the Help Desk. For requests to be processed, the following information MUST be included in the body of the Requesters full name, Client company name, Call-back number, and a detailed description of the issue If this information is not in the request, no ticket will be created and no further action will be taken by the Help Desk. A Help Desk technician will add the information into a ticket and assign it the proper priority. The ticket will then be placed in the Help Desk ticket queue, where it will then be assigned to a Level 2 technician. requests sent over the weekend will not be acknowledged until the next business day. Tickets Tickets can be assigned to the Help Desk through the ITS Portal. For Connectwise users, tickets can be assigned through the Connectwise Portal. Incoming tickets will be placed in the Help Desk ticket queue. The Help Desk Team Lead will then assign the ticket to a Level 2 technician.
Call backs On a call back, the Help Desk will leave a voic for the client if there is no answer. The Help Desk will make additional attempts to contact the client for 3 consecutive days. If the client has not responded to the Help Desk after the third day, the ticket will be marked completed and assigned to the MSP for closure. Setting Priority Levels for Request Calls and s The Help Desk will make every effort to resolve the issue at the time of the service call. This will be the initial method for resolving issues provided that there is a Level 2 technician available. During those times when a Level 2 technician is unavailable at the time of the call, and for requests, the Help Desk will log and assign priorities based on specific definitions. Requests will be handled according to the priority assigned to them. Tickets It is important that the client choose the correct priority level when creating the ticket, so that we may effectively process all requests. However, it is at the discretion of the Help Desk Manager or Team Lead to downgrade or upgrade a ticket priority if they consider it necessary.
