Managed Service Process

Our first step would be to gather information about the current infrastructure status. This entails performing an analysis of the current network infrastructure, making note of any weak points, bottle necks, or areas of concern, along with a comprehensive audit of all hardware and software. The purpose of this is to achieve the following:

  • Understanding the entire current network infrastructure, from hardwire cabling to server services and applications used.
  • Ensuring your software is licensed appropriately and notifying you when its not, so you're not at risk of being in breach of license agreements and UK law.
  • Identifying all your hardware assets, along with its value, so you know what you own and where it's located.
  • Identification of potential improvements to the infrastructure, particularly those that can reduce bottle necks or potential areas of failure.
  • Document and, if necessary, highlight the areas where improvements to the infrastructure can be made.
  • Design an improved infrastructure making best use of the existing IT infrastructure (hardware, switches, hubs, routers, servers, cabling etc).
  • Gain full agreement from all stakeholders on the design and value of the improvements.

Once we have gathered all the information, and gained agreement on all improvements, we would develop & implement the agreed improvements to the infrastructure identified above.

A detailed report is then produced containing all your software and hardware assets, and any actions that need to be taken to remain within license agreements, as identified above.

Appropriate documentation to support the new infrastructure is provided, and training of key personal in any new services or applications is undertaken, if required.

Provide ongoing support for the infrastructure, and to end users via telephone support and our online helpdesk portal, which will be covered by an annual maintenance agreement.

This is both a proactive and reactive service involving problem determination and resolution. It's reactive as we will respond to requests for assistance from end users via telephone support, or our online helpdesk portal, and proactive in that our monitoring and alerting mechanisms ensure that Assyst Solutions become aware of problems at an early stage.
