How We Work

Log Issue

An incident or problem is reported by our client or our End Point Management Systems. The issue is recorded in a ticket and assigned to a Technical Engineer for inspection.


Our Technical Engineer inspects the reported issue with the user's assistance to recreate the issue and discover the cause.


Once the cause of the issue has been identified, a solution is created and implemented to the client's satisfaction.


The issue is reviewed and checked for potential additional issues. If addition issues are found they are diagnosed and resolved.
