Delivering a top quality level of service to clients is the single most important goal of any business with just about every performance indicator that matters linked to it in some way. Service is what wins new business, retains it and secures the on-going growth critical to your success.
For businesses that operate on a contracted basis for the support and maintenance of core equipment and product offerings, the critical nature of service levels is even further emphasised as these on-going revenue streams are the lifeblood of the business and must be closely managed and monitored.
It’s therefore hugely important to get your service management systems right and as a specialist business solutions provider we have worked with many of our clients to ensure the software deployed in this area complements the core Sage 200 solutions we implement and support.
Our preferred service management software solution is the market-leading offering from our partners at Protean Software (it’s so good we use it ourselves!) and our close working relationship means we can provide the integration, coordination and support needed to ensure you get the most from your collective business systems.
