“I can’t imagine operating our business with out Acronyms. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them.”

Cattewater Harbour Commissioners were using a small IT support company when it became clear, due to an urgent situation requiring immediate assistance, that their existing provider could not meet the needs and growth of the organisation. 

Our field engineers reacted quickly, resolving the issue within the hour. Over subsequent years, we’ve worked with Cattewater Harbour Commissioners to provide ongoing IT support, as well as assistance with other projects including their IT infrastructure, cyber security and a communication suite. 

  • How much does IT support cost?

    The cost of IT support depends on the level and type of support your business requires. Factors such as the number of employees in your business and the kind of services you require can impact costs. Many companies will create a plan with their IT support providers, which considers the individual needs of their business.

  • What is onsite IT support?

    Onsite IT support covers a wide range of solutions and can be provided to assist your current team through a busy period or offer specialist knowledge throughout the length of a project. Onsite support might also include instances where a query cannot be resolved remotely. In this instance, it is vital to ensure that the IT support company can provide engineers swiftly so that your business can get back on track as soon as possible.

    In situations where remote IT support isn’t enough to resolve technical issues, your team can submit a request, and a field engineer will be deployed to your place of work. With our HQ in Plymouth, we have field engineers in the city, reducing potential downtime and disruption as they may their way to your offices. Our experienced field engineers will also explain site-based issues in a language that is easy to understand, so you know precisely what has happened and how we’ve solved the problem.

  • What is remote IT support?

    As the name suggests, remote IT support is the provision of technical guidance and support to businesses remotely, without the need for an onsite visit. Your IT support provider will be able to access your hardware from their location, making it easier to offer support over the phone or via email without having to visit in person. These days, many IT problems can be solved remotely. This means that your business experiences less downtime and disruption to your workflow is minimised.

    Many businesses choose remote IT support for its ease of use and simplicity. For example, your team can contact Acronyms to raise a support ticket via phone or by email, and we’ll strive to resolve whatever issue they’re experiencing remotely. Where access to a computer or laptop is required, our remote help desk platform allows us to access the device with the click of a button. This way, we can maintain fast response times and get your team back up and running without the need for extensive travel times.

  • What is managed IT support?

    Managed IT support is the provision of comprehensive technical support by an external IT company. This support can include a range of services including software and hardware installation and maintenance, network management, data backup and recovery, cybersecurity and help desk support.

    With managed IT support, the external IT company takes on the responsibility of monitoring and managing its client's IT infrastructure to ensure it runs efficiently and securely. This allows the client to focus on their core business activities without having to worry about managing their IT infrastructure themselves.

    Managed IT support can be offered as a subscription service, with the IT company providing ongoing support and maintenance for a monthly fee. Alternatively, it can be provided on an ad-hoc basis, with the IT company being called in to provide support as and when required. This is often referred to as a break-fix service.

    Acronyms offer an outsourced help desk with our managed IT support package, meaning you can contact our team via phone or email and our engineers will promptly address any concerns, challenges or issues you’re facing. In situations where more complex issues arise, we can also send our engineers out to your business location.

    The team at Acronyms are also available to assist your IT manager or internal team with additional support. Boasting specialist knowledge and experience that can aid in project management, we can help you increase capacity during periods of high demand as well as offer valuable guidance through our IT consultancy services.

  • What should I look for in an IT support company?

    An IT support company should offer a range of support options, from managed IT support to unified comms. As a result, when choosing your IT partner, you should consider the services they provide and how those solutions can assist your business.

    It is also essential to consider the location of your support. Whilst the location of your remote support might not be a priority, there may come a time when you need an onsite visit – a local company will be able to reach your business in Plymouth much faster than an IT support company based in Switzerland!

    Other factors to consider include…

    • Expertise and experience
    • A service level agreement with a guaranteed response time
    • Technical capabilities that ensure they can meet all of your IT support needs.
    • Customer support that is responsive, friendly and available when you need it.
    • Proactive maintenance and monitoring
    • Cyber security expertise
  • What does an IT support company do?

    An IT support company offers a range of IT solutions to support modern businesses of all shapes and sizes. From onsite maintenance support to cybersecurity solutions, an IT support company is your first port of call for any technical issues or challenges your business is facing.

    Depending on the support you require, Acronyms can take responsibility for your IT systems and unified comms to ensure that you get the most from your network and infrastructure. We’ll also ensure your devices are working correctly and that your data is safe and secure. Doing so will minimise downtime and provide your team with the support they need to maximise productivity in their daily tasks.
