ELV & IT Telephone Helpdesk

When IT or ELV problems occur, business managers need them to be resolved in the quickest possible time and with the minimum of fuss and effort by a reliable IT or ELV Support personel/firm.

Telephone support enables you or your designated contact to talk to a consultant/engineer who has expertise in the key areas that you need, as and when required. This helps to reduced costs for you as you do not have to employ dedicated IT or ELV staff.


Benefits of Telephone Support to your Business

Telephone support calls can be accepted from any users you designate within your organisation. This has a distinct advantage for the business in question as, over time, the designated IT or ELV contact becomes familiar with common problems and is thus able to resolve user problems instantly, thereby reducing downtime.

This transfer of knowledge can be enhanced through our remote support service as the designated contact can also watch our support staff conducting remedial work in real time on a screen in front of them, while being instructed as to the nature of the problem over the telephone.

From our inception, Vintage Technologies set out to provide a better quality of IT and ELV services to businesses. One of the main advantages of Vintage Technologies' telephone helpdesk support service over other technology companies is the fact that we don't differentiate between support and IT or ELV management/administration time. This means that if you buy an Telephone helpdesk Support Contract from us, but you want us to spend some time on routine administrative tasks, like adding new users to your system, you won't pay any extra for it and can allocate unused support time for this purpose, thereby saving your business valuable costs.
