Remote Support for End Users
There are many factors that can justify the outsourcing of support activities for users (helpdesk). One of them is the growing complexity of information system applications. While it is easy to support more common applications such as e-mail or Office applications, the majority of companies simply do not have the skills needed to offer an adequate support service for all the applications used by an organization. If a company does not have its own team with the necessary skills and knowledge for helping the users with the organization's software, then support outsourcing becomes a highly feasible option.
Remote support for end users gives them the freedom to focus on what is really important for their business, while at the same time offering users a specialized and high level support service. Our personnel, our processes and our technology provide the information needed for identifying trends and anticipating possible training needs, reducing response time for your users and, finally, helping your IT team to ensure your reputation as a provider of high quality services for your organization.
Our technology, together with our automated processes, will result in a significant rise in the satisfaction level of your users. We use approved processes and procedures that were developed in order to serve all aspects of the support operation. The result of this strategy is quality and efficiency in incident solving.
Acting as a single contact point for all your needs in relation to SoftExpert systems, the support outsourcing offers a wide range of solutions for maintaining your SoftExpert applications with the best possible performance while helping to reach your business goals.
The remote support service for end users follows the guidelines set down in an SLA (Service Level Agreement) contract, guaranteed by a highly qualified technical team. We work together with each customer to define the most appropriate service levels for each case. Support requests (phone calls, e-mails and chat) are revised and randomly monitored by a support coordinator to ensure conformity with the SLA requirements and to seek ways of increasing the quality of the services offered.
- What do you do when the professional responsible for the support of one or more SoftExpert products goes on vacation?
- What do you do when the professional responsible for the support of one or more SoftExpert products is transferred to another team or leaves the company?
- What do you do when the professional responsible for the support of one or more SoftExpert products is spending too much time helping and supporting new users of SoftExpert products, thus compromising the core activity?

|Modality||Monthly franchise of hours||Use policy||Extra hours||Criteria suggestion|

One of the critical factors for many organizations is the use of high quality support services and a competitive cost for supporting its personnel in operations on a daily basis. In many cases, the management processes, personnel, infrastructure or capital are insufficient to provide adequate support services. Consequently, the offer of quality technical support can quickly become a headache for budgets and a nightmare for businesses. The remote support service for SoftExpert end users offers the best conditions for:

- What do you do when the professional responsible for administration and maintenance of SoftExpert products is transferred to another team or leaves the company?

In today's environment of downsized budgets, overextended employees and high training costs, it makes good business sense to have extra options for managing your SoftExpert solutions. Without an adequately trained staff, production capabilities are diminished, administration practices suffer, projects are put on hold, and system management becomes reactive instead of proactive.
Recognizing the need to avoid these issues, SoftExpert Support Services has developed a complete program that is simpler, more cost effective, and offers greater consistency than most in-house alternatives. Your SoftExpert applications will be cared for by the people who know them best: SoftExpert specialists.

With SoftExpert remote service, there is no need to add staff to perform SoftExpert system administration, and your current system administrator is free to focus on development, programming, and capacity planning issues.
