Service Level Agreements
How do we define our response to your issues and requests? Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are put in place to reflect our reliability, efficiency and confidence in the support we provide.
Our SLAs will bring you peace of mind and is beneficial for both parties. Based on what your needs are, you will receive guaranteed service depending on where your enquiry fits within our standard response times.
Standard Response Times & SLAs
Service Level Agreements represent and define our response to your requests depending on their urgency and impact to your business. They give you a promise and confidence that we are providing an efficient process for your IT support needs.
Does your business require a bespoke set of SLAs?
We can provide bespoke SLAs to suit your business needs and IT infrastructure. Whether that's different speeds of response, priority, or hours of cover. If this is something your business needs, just ask our team.
Standard Hours We Cover
Our standard cover runs from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm (GMT/BST), from Monday to Friday, but excluding Bank Holidays for England.
Our monitoring service runs from 24x7x365 and major issues are dealt with by our out-of-hours incident team regardless of your cover.
Our SLA times only run during your agreed hours of cover.
The whole organisation is affected by a certain problem or issue.
Department or large group of people affected by the same problem.
One person or small group of people are affected by the same issue.
The issue is critical and one or more major business process has stopped.
Operational efficiency is degraded, but there's a reasonable workaround or other members of the team are impeded.
There's an easy workaround, so this is more of an irritation than a stoppage.
Overriding our priorities
We understand that sometimes there needs to be flexibility when it comes to fixing problems you may be having. Perhaps you're having connectivity issues that are resulting in downtime, or a member of the team is unable to access a part of the server.
With that in mind, our technicians are able to override the SLAs we have in place to ensure your business is back up and running quickly. If you need something actioned quickly, thus overriding our SLAs, please get in touch with us as soon as possible by contacting our Service Desk or your dedicated Account Manager.
