IT Support contracts
An IT support contract is your guarantee of IT support with just a quick phone call or an email. With an IT support contract with Plan IT Support, we become your IT helpdesk.
We will get to know your business as if we were a part of your team, so there’ll be no lengthy calls to explain who you are or what’s going on. There’s no faffing about, just one of our experienced technicians who is familiar with your business, getting you back on track. And you’ll get to know us by name!
You’ll pay for a set number of hours per month. And we’ll deal with your everyday IT issues and your bigger technical woes within the same IT support agreement. And if you don’t use them all, your monthly hours will roll over – you won’t lose any time that you have paid for. Think you need to pay for more hours, or fewer? Speak to us, we’re flexible. We won’t lock you in.
Or if contracts aren’t your thing and you’d rather pay-as-you-go, we can do that, too. Read more about our Southend IT support contracts.
Managed IT services
Everything is in the cloud these days, and we speak fluent Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. We can sort you out with the modern productivity and collaboration tools you need to take your business up a level. But if you’d rather keep your feet on the ground, we support existing or new physical server setups and can advise on on-premises business IT systems.
Every organisation needs IT security, data backup solutions and a business continuity plan should any disasters happen. We’ve got that covered too. And we can liaise with ISPs (internet service providers) and software vendors on your behalf, to make sure you’re getting the best price on your products, with the level of service that you require. We look at our managed IT services in more detail here.
Supply, installation and maintenance
We’re vendor-neutral, which means we’re not tied to just one supplier. Whether it’s PC and laptops, printers, servers, switches or more, we can advise on the best hardware, and get you the best price. And if you have a preferred brand, we can work with that.
We offer an install and maintenance service, which means we’ll set up all your kit for you, and then make sure it continues to work! We can configure your hardware at our office, or at yours. Read more about it all here.
VoIP phone systems
VoIP is the future of business telephone systems, and we’ve rolled it out for loads of our clients. Scalable, flexible and convenient, we can unshackle your business from traditional, fixed-line phone providers and get you a professional Southend or London business phone number and telephone system powered by the cloud.
Whether you’re an established business in Southend, or you’re just starting up, VoIP is a great phone solution that can be tailored exactly for your business needs. There’s more about our VoIP solutions here.
