IT SUPPORT FOR FINANCIAL SERVICES
Professional IT support and managed services for the finance industry
Akita is a leading professional IT support and managed service provider
As one of the main industries we work with, we provide IT support for financial services companies across London and the South East.
Our managed IT services are geared towards supporting the needs of financial organisations and addressing IT priorities. Below is more on how our service operates.
24/7 IT Helpdesk SUPPORT
Akita operates a large and responsive 24/7 IT helpdesk. Whatever time you find yourself working, you’ll be able to access expertise to resolve your issue.
All support requests are dealt with within strict SLAs which are monitored and reported on by our Helpdesk manager, so you won’t be kept waiting.
Issues are also prioritised based on their severity, so if your issue is business-critical you’ll be moved to the top of the queue.

PROACTIVE IT Management
Through our IT support, Akita aims not only to fix problems but prevent them from happening in the first place. This decreases business interruption for our customers and helps them be more productive. We, therefore, match up our responsive helpdesk support with a proactive IT support element.
Proactive General Maintenance (PGM) days are regular periodic maintenance visits, geared towards the specific IT setups of our financial services customers.
From complex checks on server security, to simply scheduling updates so that they don’t happen in business hours, we save our customers time through our proactive approach.
All of our engineer’s activities on these days are scheduled and recorded in our own custom PGM Power App. Our customers receive a report at the end of each PGM day, providing them with a snapshot of the state of their IT.
Our PGM records also help us identify ongoing problem areas or systems that could be improved. This can then be used to inform the IT development roadmap for your organisation.
