Standard Services

  • Rapid Response On-Site Technical Support -Upon customer request, a Systems Engineer will be dispatched. A 24 hour Service Level Agreement will ensure that resources are available upon demand. While on-site, the Engineer will work with manufacturers’ support as required to resolve critical issues, manage escalations and interface with IDS’ Technical Account Manager. As a result, issues will be resolved more quickly and efficiently leading to increased productivity, greater efficiencies and enhanced cost savings.

An on-site Engineer will perform a health check and provide recommendations for improvements to storage, networking, software agents and modules, configuration and policies. In addition, documentation will be updated to reflect production environment changes.
  • Regular Conference Call – On a semi-monthly or monthly basis, a scheduled call with IDS’ Technical Account Manager will facilitate smooth on-going operations and proactive issue resolution.
