Our Managed IT Support Service

Akita’s support mixes both responsive and proactive elements. These combine to offer a complete IT service, encompassing support, management and strategic planning, maintaining alignment between IT systems and your business plans

RESPONSIVE SUPPORT

Akita operates a 24/7 IT helpdesk to assist our customers with their support requirements.

Our service delivers all the levels of IT assistance an organisation can require. So whether you need responsive break/fix help, answers to ‘how-to’ questions or advanced technical support, we’ll be the IT partner you can rely on.

We work to strict response times, ensuring all issues are addressed within two hours (our average response time has been less than 22 mins this year so far). Our helpdesk also prioritises support based on the severity of issues. So if your IT problem is business-critical, we’ll be sure to help you first.

We fix over 99% of issues using remote support. For the minority of issues that require it, Akita can deliver onsite support quickly across the region thanks to our offices in Kent, London and Surrey.

Akita’s expert team of IT engineers and consultants are experienced in supporting a broad range of systems, software and processes, and have experience working with a diverse selection of industries. So you can be sure they’ll have the technical expertise you need.

PROACTIVE SUPPORT

While a responsive service is important, it’s more efficient if IT issues don’t happen in the first place. For this reason, Akita delivers a proactive support service as well.

We provide 24/7 remote monitoring for core systems, hardware and software, checking on the health of your IT infrastructure. This allows us to detect IT issues as they develop and prevent them from becoming problems –  often before our customers have arrived at their workplace for the day.

Monitoring also provides us with an indication of when IT hardware is reaching the end of its life. So we can give you an advanced warning about when to replace core items such as servers before they fail, giving organisations time to make informed choices rather than rushed decisions.

We also provide dedicated Proactive General Maintenance time to our customers, focused on keeping their IT systems in the best shape possible.

From scheduling updates out of hours to patching against the latest threats, our proactive approach actively reduces IT-related business interruption. In the process, it saves organisations money as well.

Technical Account Management

All of Akita’s supported customers are provided with a Technical Account Manager – a senior IT engineer who will work to become an expert in the way your organisation works. Through this understanding, they’ll help assist with the development of your IT systems, processes and strategy over the course of the relationship.

Our Technical Account Managers also engage with our customers on a regular basis to review our IT support performance. Using helpdesk data summarised in our Executive Summary Reports, they work with our customers to continually improve the service we deliver and indicate where user training or IT system changes may help reduce IT-related business downtime.
