We offer support and guidance service to our clients by delivering  On-Site Support Engineers who are responsible for providing support services to the client in parallel with our dedicated Service Desk. They provide advice and guidance and complete service requests, working with the Client’s internal Unified Communications (UC) team and other support teams.

The On-Site Support Engineer provides support at a 2nd /3rd line level. 1st line support (user adoption, account setup, ‘how-to’ questions, initial diagnosis, etc.) is provided by the Client, whilst Incident/Problem tickets are logged with and resolved by our Service Desk. When a request is UC support related and is not resolvable by the On-Site Support Engineer, the ticket may be escalated to our senior Service Desk engineers for assistance or for resolution.

There is a general resource element to the work and the engineer may be asked to assist in non-UC and non-support related activities at the Client’s discretion. There is a requirement for some out of hours activities (weekends and evenings).
