Cost savings

Coloured Network Cables

In depth IT skills are expensive and smaller organisations can rarely afford a full time in-house IT person, let alone a department, yet the need for support is always there. Minimise your costs and let Entec Novare become your IT department.

One phone number - for hardware and software queries

Most computer systems have occasional problems, require users to be added or changed, software or hardware updating or added. Do you phone the software supplier or the hardware manufacturer for help and one may well tell you to phone the other! With a Support Contract you only need to call one number.

Stop possible problems before they turn into a disaster – pro-active support
In day-to-day use viruses can attack, hard disks run out of space, systems get clogged and slow down. Our most popular level of Support Contract in charities provides remote access to your systems. When the contract is signed a senior engineer will visit your organisation to do a site survey of your IT equipment and set up a remote access facility. We can then monitor critical factors and stop the problems before they occur.

Availability

If you do have IT staff or people with key IT skills they can be absent - vacations, sickness, training days. Entec Novare can fill the gap and will always have engineers available for telephone support or on-site visits if required.

Have a planned IT budget - eliminate unexpected bills

With an Entec Novare Support Contract you can know what you are budgeting for and what you are getting. We can assist you plan your budgets 3 and 4 years ahead by advising on annual costs and likely replacement costs in years to come. We aim to eliminate hidden costs by providing (depending on contract level):

  • Unlimited Telephone Support
  • Regular Site Visits
  • Unlimited Remote Support
  • Remote monitoring of networks

Maybe you just need additional resource?

There are occasions when your own IT person or department needs to complete a project in a specific time. Entec Novare’s Technical Team can work with them so that they can focus on key areas whilst we tackle time-consuming tasks. Alternatively we can bring in expertise that may not be available in-house since technical training courses to provide those skills can be expensive.
