IT Support

Focussed on support for humans, by humans

Providing you with the IT service & support that you need, and helping your business to grow in ways that you may never have imagined.

What is IT Support?

The role of IT Support Providers is to ensure that your business technologies are running as smoothly as possible. Even small business IT support needs to encompass the monitoring and managing of your systems, ensuring that they’re always up to date. But that’s not where Solid Systems’ IT support solutions end. 

To us, IT helpdesk support is about more than just maintenance. That’s why we help you beyond simply ensuring that your existing technologies are maintained:

What makes Solid Systems a leading IT Support company in South Africa and the UK?

When you think of your business’ IT infrastructure, it can be easy to focus on the big areas – your servers and network, their security, your end point devices and so on. You think about their purchase and their provisioning, but what about their upkeep? When you’re running a large business, IT support and managing and maintaining your infrastructure can easily become a fulltime job, and one that many companies don’t have the resources to fill. 

This is where a service provider like Solid Systems steps in, to provide you with the IT service & IT support that your business needs on a day-to-day basis, and to help your business grow in ways that you may never have imagined.

What are the benefits of Outsourced IT Support?

Many companies choose to manage their business IT helpdesk in-house. While this is a viable option, it is expensive, and often results in individuals or entire teams dedicating all of their time to IT support, without being able to focus on the core areas that could help to drive the business forward. It also becomes difficult for a single person, or even a team, to keep themselves constantly updated on the latest technologies, the right updates, and the right IT helpdesk support techniques to be implementing for your business. 

There are a number of benefits to using an external IT company for outsourced IT support:

    Frequently asked questions

    What are IT support services?

    IT support services are all about helping you manage and maintain your technologies. It could be assisting with technical support for your devices, proactively monitoring your servers, training your teams in the latest best practices, keeping your business secure online, or it could be all of the above. No matter what your technology needs, our team of IT pros are here to help.

    Why is IT support important in a business?

    At Solid Systems, we love to see the ways that technology evolves. But for most businesses, evolving technologies mean headaches and hassles as the solutions they’re used to become outdated and start to cause problems. Having an IT support team behind you to not only help you through any issues that you may experience, but also put together strategic technology planning to see you putting your best foot forward and meeting your business goals is essential in this modern digital age.

    What is an IT helpdesk ticketing system?

    Every time that you send an email to Solid Systems’ IT helpdesk, it creates a ‘ticket’ which gets assigned to one of our IT pros. This makes it easy to follow up on and keep track of every request that you make, and it helps us to ensure that every query that we receive gets handled as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    Is IT helpdesk and IT support the same?

    Not quite. IT support is a general term for everything that a provider like Solid Systems does to manage and maintain your technologies. An IT Helpdesk forms part of IT support. Whenever you have a question, query, request or problem, you’ll contact the IT Helpdesk either over email, telephonically or in person, and our IT pros will get back to you as quickly as possible.

    Is there any difference between IT Helpdesk and Technical Support?

    Yes. While IT Helpdesk specifically refers to the process of contacting a support team, and how they manage your queries and requests, Technical Support or IT Support is a general term that covers all the ways a partner like Solid Systems can help you to maintain and manage your technologies as a whole.

    How does an IT helpdesk improve your team's productivity?

    As a business, you want to spend as much of your time and effort on your core focus as possible. Every minute that you spend worrying about a device that isn’t working, an email address that isn’t connecting, or any other IT issues is time that is wasted. That’s why having an external IT support partner who manages all of your IT services and ensures that any problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently will see a boost in your company’s productivity, and help you to achieve your goals.
