In the fast-paced, ever-changing business world, you need to ensure that your IT can adapt accordingly. With more companies than ever requiring support round-the-clock, Blue Chip are able to leverage a team of 140-strong technical professionals to assist your users on a truly 24/7 basis.
Unlike traditional Managed Services or on-site IT teams which generally offer a 9-5 service with “on call” support at best, our Fully-Managed Service provides an unlimited, all-inclusive, fixed price service for the support, maintenance and management of your IT. The service is delivered on a telephone and remote basis with engineers dispatched to site only if required, enabling customers to outsource the activities required to monitor, repair and maintain their IT infrastructure whilst reducing on-site staffing overheads.
Blue Chip’s Fully-Managed Service incorporates all the essential maintenance that is often missed by in-house teams and Service providers, and includes regular server patching, antivirus updates, and the review, verification and testing of backup jobs. The service is packaged in three tiers to meet the needs of each individual customer: Bronze, Silver and Gold. True 24/7 support and monitoring is provided as standard across all tiers, including unlimited incidents and service requests. Additional components are available in the Silver and Gold levels, the leading provision being Proactive Watchpoints. Designed for those who cannot afford downtime, a system of preventative maintenance tasks are scheduled to flag up issues for resolution before they have a chance to negatively impact on your business, as well as increasing system performance and uptime.
