We support technologies, systems, products and operations. We support our customer’s entire Operational Technology platform. We directly support operators and we support engineers in planning, design, development and deployment.

What do you mean by support?

Support is sometimes loosely considered to be customer service; however, customer support is a more formal instrument to achieve a particular outcome rather than a general customer relations function of any good business – customer assistance or advice.
The outcome of customer support may be keeping a system available for operational use, or it may mean having engineers available to support problem resolution. Support may be during business hours only or it may be around the clock.

The support function may be deep where Incident Detection, Incident Management and Operational Performance is measured and reported to ensure the operational integrity of a business’s OT (operations). These metrics usually include effective cost management, maintenance according to accepted practice, lifecycle planning and risk mitigation, and change management and configuration management improvement to reach operational excellence.

OT Managed Services

Our Managed Services for OT are an Enterprise Agreement to provide the highest quality and most flexible arrangement for our customers. It encompasses everything we do. For our customers, it means greater certainty for outcomes where Operational Performance is the key metric. The Operational Performance Metrics become the driver rather than an isolated project or single ticket resolution. By contributing to OT strategy, understanding business pressure points, standardising how technology is managed and complementing the customers knowledge workers, we are able to deliver results that only specialists that operate a repeatable system of management can provide. This is a unique service offering for OT.

Lifelong Total Support?

Our purpose is to change the world with better systems. Providing tailored and enterprise support, ensures we can do this.
The OT environment is complex and demands a disciplined and coordinated approach to ensure “hack” resolutions or incremental configuration (versus holistic design and support) do not compromise a systems availability. These compromises are rarely detected immediately or they would have been solved, so the hidden and significant issues almost always lie deep below the surface. Some of the examples of compromise include updating system artefacts immediately, not applying updates according to standards, not having standards, general communication to stakeholders, staging and off system pre-checks, effective notification, “working with” operators, and so on.

OT systems deserve the same attention as any other business asset. The requirements and strategies can be challenging to ring fence when the components are not commodity items and there are systems within systems which are frequently untouched for years. Just because it’s complex in every facet, doesn’t mean it cannot be regulated to deliver its purpose, but be assured, it cannot be managed as a commodity.

    – Leonardo Da Vinci

Despite the complexity associated with operating and managing technologies, being practiced, rehearsed and disciplined in the manner in which systems are managed is the secret to success. We call this Systems Engineering Management Practice. Coupled with a “simplified” customer interface for incident management, relationship management, account management, reporting and guaranteed support takes the risk and worry off the table.

Need Incident Resolution Support for your System?

Our back-end system for receipting incidents, collaborated investigation, prioritisation and planning, ensures that all Priority 1 issues are always on the top of the list, top of mind and being attended to. There are no distractions for our support team when your system is at risk. This provides peace of mind for critical and also not so critical situations. In these situations, we report on high priority resolutions immediately. Less critical issues are also included in our monthly summary report. Accountability and performance reporting is part of any support service we provide. This helps to protect you from unnecessary operational risks including downtime.
