What happens next?
The process starts with choosing IT support handover date. From there we’ll start our comprehensive client induction process refined and updated over the last 15 years. Starting our IT support in Kent journey with the right foundations is key, and that’s why we spend so much time, in the beginning, to get things right.
When the day comes, we’ll be with you on-site at your office(s) and we’ll get started by building and validating documentation about your infrastructure. If your incumbent provider has provided a handover, we’ll also go through this with them as well. After that comes a security audit, backup audit and we begin monitoring things like your broadband. Throughout the day we’ll also be deploying our remote management software and IT Support Tags (discrete stickers) to allow us to easily identify and remote control your machine when you need us.
At the end of the process is a sit-down review with your account manager to discuss the results.

Small and medium-sized businesses often rely on managed IT service providers to handle their entire IT infrastructure, allowing them to concentrate on their core operations. On the other hand, larger businesses may engage MSPs to assist their in-house IT teams by offloading routine IT tasks, enabling their internal staff to focus on more strategic and long-term initiatives.
