Pretechtsm: Our Managed Service Solution

Network Managed Service SolutionSSE’s All-Inclusive managed service solution provides both proactive support and reactive support with ongoing preventative maintenance and unlimited onsite and remote IT support when issues do arise.  It’s the ultimate peace of mind package for a business owner, including:

  • Server and Desktop Monitoring/Management
    Monitoring your network systems is the cornerstone of our Managed IT Service solution.  We proactively monitor, update, back-up, secure, and manage all of your business computers and servers. Our monitoring tool keeps tabs on over 450+ aspects of your business network 24/7, alerting us to issues such as low disc space, a failing hard drive, or anti-virus not running, before they become a problem to your daily productivity.
  • Proactive Network Administration/Management
    At SSE we recognize the importance of having recurring preventative maintenance services to keep your operations running smoothly.  First, we apply industry best practices to ensure your network infrastructure is set up optimally so your IT systems operate efficiently, minimizing  costly issues that interrupt your business operations.  Secondly, we provide ongoing proactive support to ensure key tasks like data backups are working properly,  patches and updates are pushed out timely and firewalls are continually updated to provide security to your network.
  • A Complete Support Team for Your Users
    Through a combination of remote and onsite support, we will provide routine maintenance to your business systems, as well as respond to problems when they arise.  Each client is assigned a small dedicated team of primary engineers who become familiar with your business, network operations, and most importantly, your people!  Additionally, you will have access to our Pretecht Client Service Desk, staffed with a team of desktop support professionals ready to take your calls.  Over 80% of issues that arise can usually be addressed right over the phone!
  • A Client Portal
    Each client is given access to their own Pretecht Portal, allowing your employees to easily submit trouble tickets.  The portal lets you review all of your account information and any tickets submitted for maintenance to your business systems. It acts as a central point to work collaboratively and simplify communications between our teams.  In addition, tickets may also be called into the Client Service Desk or submitted via email.
  • A Dedicated Account Manager
    Each client is assigned an Account Manager to ensure an ongoing aligned client-IT partner relationship. Through a variety of meetings, phone calls and emails, your Account Manager will continually check in to make sure everything is running smoothly and will take any issues or concerns that need to be addressed back to the team. Your Account Manager will also provide trend reports of any trouble tickets submitted.
  • IT Strategic Consulting and Planning
    To ensure your IT systems are strategically aligned with your business operations, SSE will assign you a Virtual Chief Information Officer (VCIO) to assist with IT strategic planning.  Through tri-annual planning meetings, your VCIO will seek to understand both your immediate and long term business goals and make recommendations to align your technology to help meet those business goals.
