SWC’s Skype for Business Managed Services Offering Includes:
“The big word for me in the name of the company is partner. SWC is talented, engaged and passionate about what they do. It’s not a customer-supplier relationship. We’re in it together and we win together.”
SWC offers a comprehensive set of services covering all facets of IT support. We can provide fully outsourced IT services or complement an internal team through the following:
Clients often first consider managed services after some type of painful event occurs – unexpected outage, IT staff turnover, etc. The process starts with a discussion around business requirements and pain points and the gaps that need to be filled. SWC then develops a customized solution that meets the immediate need and provides a comprehensive plan for transitioning support to our team. The goal is to minimize risk and ensure service continuity to the users and business operations.
A key step in any outsourcing relationship is the definition of roles and responsibilities and a framework for delivering support. Components of the framework include the definition of processes and procedures including Incident, Problem and Change Management. With a defined structure in place, proper training, and a tool to manage the process, SWC successfully co-manages many IT environments with its clients.
Leveraging the collective experience of the SWC team has proven to be of great benefit to our clients. Not only will we intimately know your environment, we’ll invest to understand your business goals. We’ll then develop a strategic roadmap that identifies the solutions, including estimated budget and dependencies that will ensure that those goals are met and position the company for future growth.
Since beginning managed services more than 10 years ago, we focused on delivering the highest value of service and support to our clients. Our contracts include 30-day cancellation which has resulted in a win-win for our clients. We’re able to more easily adapt to the changing needs of services over time and our team is incentivized every month to provide the best service and support possible.
