How does Ascendant take control of our IT needs?
All of these services are covered at no extra charge with our managed IT service plan.
Remote Support Desk :
When your staff run into computer issues, what support resource do they have to resolve their issues and get back to work? A quick call or email to Ascendant’s support desk gets you in touch with a support desk specialist FAST. Ascendant's team will troubleshoot issues until the job is done. Is the printer not working? Your desktop is running slow? The WiFi isn't connecting? Seeing the same application issue over and over? We cover everything you can think of at no additional cost under our flat-rate IT management and support plans.
Server and Desktop Management :
Along with remote support desk we offer server and desktop management. Ascendant will install a non-intrusive software agent that will monitor your system, 24x7. This software will proactively alert us of any underlying issues such as running out of storage, out of date antivirus software, security patching, malware protection as well as inventory and asset tracking. This is offered for all your devices including server, desktops and laptops.
Professional Server Maintenance :
Your server is not a toaster. You can't take it out of the box and let it just run indefinitely. Modern servers are a complex combination of hardware and software. Many small and medium businesses rely on their server for mail, file sharing and business applications. To insure these servers continue to run, It's vital they’re properly maintained. Ascendant's IT management framework will monitor server health, patching, scripts, and storage, 24x7 so you won't have too!
Cloud Services :
The almighty cloud. You've probably heard plenty about the cloud. "It’s the next big thing". The benefits of having data stored in the cloud gives you the confidence files/applications/mail are available when you need them. You also minimize the risk of hardware failure and the need for constant updates. Ascendant takes your routine system maintenance, updates and security to the cloud where we continue to save your company, time and money.
