How Arc Systems provides IT Support & IT Services in Essex

Arc Systems have proudly been providing IT Support in Essex for our customers for over 30 years. Utilising over 3 decades of experience allows our highly trained engineers to tackle some of the most complex IT issues.

Have you ever wondered how we handle customer calls to ensure effective problem resolution?

Does your company currently not outsource its IT infrastructure? Here we give you a better understanding of how we could help.


The Background – Why outsource your IT?

Recent research published showed that on average an employee loses 22 minutes per day to technical problems. That’s a loss of around two weeks per year, for every employee due to computer issues.

Many organisations delegate IT support to a member of staff with some basic IT knowledge or hire internal IT staff to help. However, this by itself is still likely to result in problems.

Outsourcing your IT is now becoming a fast and effective approach taken by most businesses. Arc Systems pride itself on recruiting top engineers with a variety of different skills, as well as working alongside the best partners in the industry.

What makes Arc Systems the company used by hundreds of organisations across Essex and the South East region?


Understanding our IT Help Desk

When our customers escalate a problem, Arc Systems have documented ISO 9001:2015 processes in place for handling IT queries.

STEP ONE: Creating a Support Ticket
Our Help Desk raises a ticket when customers contact us via phone, email, or our online support portal. Our Help Desk response queue reviews the ticket and sends the customer’s problem to a support agent based on their SLA (Service Level Agreement), and the customer gets an email copy of their ticket to track its progress.

STEP TWO: Analysing the problem
Arc Systems look to resolve the matter on the first attempt when a support ticket is assigned. However, there may be some instances when this isn’t possible, and our team will then escalate the problem to one of our 2nd or 3rd line engineers. Depending on the cause of the problem, our team will assign an engineer to it based on their variety of different skills.

STEP THREE: Testing and Resolving
The solution to a problem may involve remote support, on-site support, or a combination of both. Our help desk technicians will never consider a support ticket closed until theyve verified the issue, tested it completely, and ensured that the customer is happy.

STEP FOUR: Serious IT Issues
On occasions, serious IT issues occur. Arc Systems will then employ a number of 3rd-line technicians who are always on hand to deal with these occurrences.
