HOW TO GET STARTED
It's easy. To get started, simply follow these steps:
- Sign up - First, sign up via our Order Form.
- Our customer center -We will process your order and provide you with a login to our customer center, where
you will find more detailed instructions on how to get support underway. Through our customer center, we will collect a range of information from
you about your service and systems to ensure that we are able to address your customers' questions.
- We assign your team - We will assign a team of technicians for you to handle your online tickets. These
technicians will be certified engineers (Red Hat Certified
Engineers or Microsoft certified engineers depending on whether you have Linux or Windows servers). They will have strong written English skills and
are based in India. We will also assign a team of technicians to answer phone calls from your clients. Phone support is provided by our friendly
staff in the
Philippines who speak fluent English with minimal accent and an affinity with western culture.
- We provide a phone number - You can choose to have either a US, UK, Australian or Canadian phone number, and
can choose from a wide range of area codes. If you like, you can have multiple phone numbers, such as having one number in New York and one number in London. The
first phone number is provided at no additional charge (unless it is a toll free number in which case additional charges apply). Additional
charges apply for each extra number. When your customers call the phone number(s) we provide, their calls will be answered by our staff in the
- Send us ticket notifications - You will need to set your ticket system to send us an email notification when
each ticket is lodged or updated. Most ticket system software provides straight-forward facilities to do that. Obviously you will also need to provide us with at least two login accounts for your ticket system
(one for your ticket support team and one for your phone support team).
- Support commences - Once the above steps are complete, you can go ahead and provide your customers with your
new technical support phone number and confirm for us that you would like us to commence support. Our team of technicians will then respond to tickets lodged by your customers by logging in to your ticket system and
answering tickets in your company's name. Our company name will not be visible and we will remain anonymous in the support process so that your customers are not aware that
you have outsourced support. Please note that only Level 1 technical support is available by phone, and so if a customer calls with a more complex
technical issue then our phone support staff will lodge a ticket in your online ticket system which will then be handled by your assigned team of
certified engineers. If one of your customers calls about a sales or billing issue, then we will explain to the customer that he/she has reached
your technical support help desk and we will invite the customer to leave a message so that we can pass it on to the sales/billing department.
