- Pay as you go to resolve IT helpdesk issues.
- Pre-purchase our time at discounted labour rates.

Telephone & Remote Access IT Support
Our IT support customers benefit from unlimited telephone and remote access support to ensure that any issues are dealt with quickly and cost-effectively. All incidents are logged into our helpdesk system and dealt with by one of our Microsoft Certified Engineers.
Our helpdesk system allows us to manage incidents, review any historical problems and quickly resolve the problem to minimise any effects on your business.
Around 98% of solutions to technical problems can be delivered by Remote Access support, saving our customers unnecessary downtime and reducing costs. A secure connection is set up and our engineers remotely connect to your machine to resolve any issues with minimum inconvenience.
On-site IT Support
Occasionally when network issues cannot be resolved remotely, it will be necessary for one of our engineers to attend site to fix the problem. At Akita, we pride ourselves on providing a prompt and proactive service with response times to fit in with your needs.
Critical applications or machines will be viewed as requiring more urgent attention and will typically fall under a 1 or 2 hour on-site response time.
Proactive IT Support
Proactively monitoring hardware performance and carrying out health checks allows us to extend the life of your hardware, giving you better value for money.
More importantly, our proactive approach to IT support means that we can identify and address potential problems before they affect your computer systems or user experience.
For the majority of our clients, we carry out regular preventative maintenance visits which significantly reduce the number of support calls you’ll need to make. As well as this, they provide a great opportunity for you to discuss your systems and any potential improvements you might want with your preferred engineer.
