A monthly support contract is recommended for small and medium sized companies that need priority support to fix IT problems when they arise.

They also give peace of mind that their systems are regularly monitored and maintained.

The key elements of a Corework IT support contract are:

  • Fixed Monthly Fee
  • Priority over Pay As You Go support option
  • Unlimited telephone and remote access support
  • Bundled allowance of on-site support hours
  • System and Backup monitoring
  • Initial full system audit, documentation and installation of support tools

Each monthly IT support contract is individually tailored to your particular needs and is based on your particular systems and the service level agreement (SLA) that you require. 

As an example, support contracts can vary from a simple office setup with a couple of desktop computers to more complex server installations with remote users connecting from home offices, laptops and smart mobile phones.
